More people in Scotland voted against independence than anything else in the history of Scotland. It isn't just that the SNP refuse to accept this as an observation of fact, it’s that they cannot differentiate pseudo-nationality from political ideologue.

One of the various straws clutched at by Europhiles aggrieved with the voting public is that our vote to Leave will trigger the disintegration of the United Kingdom.

It seems very strange that it could be illegal for someone to exist in their natural state: naked. It is not true to say that public nudity is outright illegal in the UK. There are unofficial nude beaches in the UK (such as a small section in Brighton's beach),...
Obama is a greater enemy of freedom than Bush ever was. So why aren't we angry? Barak Obama was elected on a simple message of Hope and Change. Two simple but emotive words into which a generation of Americans could read what they wanted to read. Obama and his team concocted...
