Only Brexit can save our values from an abyss

Every so often, something is published which slices through the fog of confusion, obfuscation and the sheer dishonesty of public debate to illuminate one key fact about the world. Such a work is Douglas Murray’s tremendous and shattering book, The Strange Death of Europe. His argument is as simple as it is bleak. Europe is dying, doomed by a willed collapse of its culture which has left it unable even to acknowledge, let alone defend itself against, a hostile takeover from beyond its borders. To read Douglas Murray’s remorseless and…

Mrs May’s human shield

What an almighty mess. Theresa May is clinging to office and is trying to stitch together a deal with the Northern Ireland Democratic Unionist Party to give her an overall and workable majority. I wrote here that she should go. Few think she’ll still be Prime Minister by the end of the year and she may be forced out well before that. Power and authority have drained away from her. What’s of overwhelming importance, however, is the national interest. There are two points to make on that. The first is…

The west’s most fundamental and lethal divide

The recent terrorist attacks in Britain have exposed once again the enormous divide between millions of ordinary people who “get it” and the elite class of politicians, media and so-called progressives who do not. In the last three months, there have been three sets of Islamist attacks in London and Manchester. Five additional such plots have been thwarted over that period. The security service is trying to monitor 3,500 homegrown Muslim terrorist suspects. It says it cannot be sure of preventing more such attacks. It is clear that it is…

Disaster! Now Mrs May must go

0800 UK When Theresa May called yesterday’s general election, I wrote here that she had taken a mighty risk. When she announced that she would asset strip the houses of the elderly to make them pay for domiciliary care, I asked here whether she was actually trying to lose the election. Yesterday she lost it. At time of writing the final result still isn’t known. It looks as if Britain is heading for a hung parliament, with the Tories as the largest party scrabbling to stitch together a coalition. (It’s…

Not all refugees are pure victims

The terror attacks in London and Manchester have served notice upon politicians that anti-extremist strategy has to change. But will the attacks also jolt the Jewish community out of its own alternative universe? The Manchester Arena bomber, Salman Abedi, came from a family of Libyan refugees who fled the Gaddafi regime. The parents of one of the London Bridge terrorists, Khuram Butt, are reported to have been asylum-seekers from Pakistan. Gaddafi’s enemies included a large number of jihadists who, as a result of his fall, have been unleashed to attack…

The red-black-green-Islamic axis

Throughout the west, many are bewildered by the way in which so-called progressives support people and causes which are inimical to their own supposed ideals and beliefs. People observe with as much bafflement as revulsion the violence on campus directed at people with conservative or pro-Israel views in order to deprive them on freedom of speech; the refusal of feminists to condemn the oppression of women in the developing world; the further silence of those committed to gay rights or resistance to tyranny over the persecution of gay people or…

What must be done to stop terror in Londonistan

In the wake of the latest Islamist atrocities in Britain, the murderous vehicular rampage on London Bridge and then the frenzied stabbing of people enjoying a Saturday night out in local eateries, the ensuing blame game has merely highlighted the need to start facing up to what it takes to defend a free society. Join me here for my take on these grievous events and what Britain should now be doing. A transcript follows below the video. Does the Prime Minister read my column? In yesterday’s Times, I wrote that…

Terror will continue until Islam is reformed

Even now, with Theresa May saying “enough is enough” after the London Bridge atrocities, we are still refusing to identify correctly the threat that has already claimed so many lives. These attackers are not “evil losers”. They are not “sick cowards”. They are not nihilists or psychiatric cases or lone wolves. They are devout and ecstatic Muslim fanatics who are waging a war of religion against us. To read my entire Times column, please click here (subscription only).

A blow for science, sovereignty and sanity

President Trump’s decision to pull the US out of the 2015 Paris climate accord has been received with predictable hysteria. Nothing could better illustrate the parlous state of western society than this irrational, ignorant and ideological reaction. Trump is being accused of being anti-science. On the contrary: it’s the anthropogenic global warming (AGW) scam that’s anti-science. Here are some elementary facts. Observable fluctuations in global temperature are within the normal historic pattern of atmospheric variation. The world has always warmed and cooled; the climate changes continually and, at times, quite…
