Article 50 Protest to Welcome May

Often sound lefty-libertarians “Spiked” are organising a protest calling on Theresa May to invoke Article 50. Tom Slater, campaign convenor,said “Warm words, and assurances that ‘Brexit means Brexit’, won’t wash.” My own view is that Article 50 need not be triggered especially quickly, as long as it is triggered – but it may be helpful…

We’ll probably Remain in the EU

At the age of 20, my political views already formed, I followed the general election in Israel, the country I called home back then, very closely. Less than a year earlier the second intifada had reached its peak, with suicide bombings becoming a part of everyday life, until operation Defensive Shield set the Palestinian terrorists…

Political engagement and reform must continue

The EU referendum campaign was an interesting time in our recent political history. It split the two major parties as well as conjuring up some interesting political bedfellows. And it also got a lot of people engaged in politics who normally couldn’t give a damm. Many people in Northern parts of England who voted for…

See EU Later: 5 Options for post-Brexit trade

Ruling By Fear

The definition of ruling is “exercising authority or influence” and the very act of doing so should be anathema to all libertarians. We do not want others exercising power over us and good libertarians want all of our fellow human beings to be equally free of authority and would never dream of trying to exercise authority…

The Town Clerk of Britain

Should Britain decide to remain in the European Union on 23rd June, 2016, that clicking sound you hear behind you will be the door shutting on sovereignty. The changes in voting mechanisms, the removal of the veto in so many areas, the primacy of the European Court has gradually emasculated the UK Parliament. Yet more…

The EU is the Wrong Tool to Defeat Nationalism

I am very much an individualist. As such I have always despised nationalism. I am convinced that we need to overcome this ideology if we want to live in a free world. One could think now that, since I hate nationalism, I probably should like the EU. The core political agenda of the EU has…
