Pull your finger out Duncan Smith and tell it how it is…he’s a liar.

Today has seen Minister and former Conservative Party leader Iain Duncan Smith launch an attack on the remain campaign and I have to admit that it is a piece that has really annoyed me. Writing in the Daily Mail he urges them to stop being so negative and wishes for…


David Cameron has not exactly been covering himself in glory lately and Sunday was no exception as the de facto head of the remain campaign took to the Sunday Telegraph and Facebook to give the plebs his latest views on Brexit. You can read his piece here. …


David Cameron’s assertion that his ‘deal’ is ‘legally binding’ has been unraveling almost from the time of its announcement. It has been rubbished by so many that I could write a separate post listing them all. So for expediencies sake please read; here, here, here and here. A prominent critic…

This post is about the current make-up of the EU referendum debate and its longer term effect on prestigious establishment bodies that have already weighed into the argument. With this in mind I was fully intending to start with the Prime Minister and his recent assertion that his ‘deal’ over…


The latest opinion polls by YouGov on voting intentions in the EU referendum are worth looking at in relation to David Cameron’s renegotiation deal with the EU. The straight Leave-Remain figures have been volatile but not the numbers when ‘deal’ questions are asked. So the current figures for if the…
