SNP MP charged with fraud

SNP MP, Natalie McGarry, has been charged with fraud offences relating to the finances of SNP's Glasgow Regional Association and Women for Independence.

McGarry was reported to the police 10 months ago for alleged fraud after audits showed money was unaccounted for at both organisations.

Diane Abbott accuses 17.4m Leave voters of being stupid and racist

Racist Labour MP, Diane Abbott, has accused all 17,410,742 people who voted to Leave the EU of being stupid and racist.

This comes after a campaigner for the trade union front, Hate not Hope, told delegates at the Labour Party conference that working class people are racist but they have to talk to them to win elections.

Abbott later tried to backtrack, claiming she was just saying that Brexit isn't an excuse to racial abuse people. Because that's what we all spend our time doing now in Diane "white people love to play divide and rule" Abbott's mind.

Dickie Bird selected as UKIP candidate for Witney by-election

Former soldier, Dickie Bird (no, not Dickie off the cricket), has been selected as UKIP's candidate for the Witney by-election.

Dickie served in the Royal Green Jackets (now the Rifles) in Oxfordshire for 20 years and was an Oxford College porter, a respected and highly sought after job. He is not believed to have been a porter there when David Cameron had his porcine encounter.

Overturning the Conservative Party's 25k majority will be an epic task, not to mention a potential record breaker. Witney is about as safe as it gets for the Tories so it will be interesting to see if the poll advantage the Tories have courtesy of Jeremy Corbyn's disastrous leadership of the Labour Party translates into actual votes.

Burlington "Hispanic" terrorist suspect turns out to be Turkish

A 20 year old Turkish man has been arrested for the fatal shooting of 5 people in a shopping mall in Burlington, Washington this weekend.

Police described the suspect as being of Hispanic appearance following the shooting but that proved not to be the case. Arcan Cetin can be seen entering the mall unarmed on CCTV footage but a few minutes later is seen with what appears to be a hunting rifle.

Cetin has a history of domestic violence and had been ordered by the courts to stay away from drink and drugs. He was attending court-mandated mental health counselling sessions.

The FBI have said that they are not ruling out terrorism.

Scottish Labour councillor suspended for homophobia

A Labour councillor in Scotland has been suspended after allegedly referring to the chair of a local LGBT* group as a deviant.

Dumfries & Galloway Labour councillor, Tom McAughtrie, has been placed under administrative suspension by the Scottish Labour Party after he allegedly posted the comment on social media.

Schultz says we have to leave the EU by 2019

The unelected president of the EU Parliament, Martin Schultz, has said that the UK must leave the EU by 2019 so that it's all done and dusted before the next EU elections.

We will leave in 2019 but not because this windbag says so. The next EU elections are due to be held in April or May 2019 and there is no legal basis for excluding the UK from EU elections. The British government won't want to shell out several tens of millions of pounds on a pointless election and more importantly for the pro-EU parties, they won't want the UKIP landslide that is inevitable if Article 50 hasn't been triggered by then.

EU elections are officially declared a month before the poll in the UK and the next elections are due in April or May 2019. Article 50 will need to be triggered in February of March next year to safely avoid the next EU elections. My guess is that Brexit will happen on 31st March making 1st April independence day which also ties in nicely with the new tax year and annual budgets for government departments.

Diane James will meet UKIP's AMs to try and unite the party in Wales

Diane James is meeting with UKIP's Welsh Assembly Members to try and get work through the divisions that have plagued the group since the elections this year.

Neil Hamilton has entered Welsh politics with the tact and diplomacy of Donald Trump (ok, maybe not that bad) and in a few short months came close to losing the party one of its MEPs and an AM and then turned his attention on the chairman of Caerphilly branch who works for Nathan Gill and has been critical of Hamilton.

Nathan Gill remains chairman of UKIP Wales, a post that is appointed by the leader of the national party whilst Neil Hamilton is leader of the UKIP group in the Senedd which is a position he was elected to by the party's AMs. Both have called for the party to unite behind our new leader, let's hope that includes the pair of them!

Juncker caves in on Swiss immigration controls

The unelected president of the EU Commission has given up arguing with Switzerland over unlimited immigration and opened the door to Swiss immigration controls for EU citizens whilst remaining members of the EU single market.

The Swiss people voted to end the bilateral agreement between Switzerland and the EU that allows unlimited immigration as if they were EU members in February 2014. Since then they have been threatened by the EU with all sorts of retaliatory measures, including cancelling their free trade agreements but they were just empty threats.

Under the Swiss constitution the Swiss government has until February to implement the referendum result into law whether the EU agrees or not and regardless of the consequences. The only way to deal with the EU is by playing hard ball - tell them what the outcome is going to be and ignore their empty threats. The British government need to learn from Switzerland.

Merkel's CDU gets another pounding in the polls

Angela Merkel's CDU party has been given another bloody nose in regional elections, losing its place in the ruling coalition of the Berlin state parliament.

The CDU secured just 17.6% of the vote which is a record low for the party in Berlin. Both the CDU and the SDP lost vote share to the soft eurosceptic party, AfD who now have representation in 10 out of 16 regions.

A fortnight ago the CDU came third in regional elections in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania.

RIP Dr Raj Chandran

Corbynists are targeting children as young as three with Momentum Kids

The far left militant Labour Party group, Momentum, is setting up a Momentum Kids to indoctrinate kids as young as three years old.

Momentum Kids will provide cooperatively-run creches and breakfast clubs for children as young as 3 and training in political activism for older children. Momentum wants to improve the "political engagement" of children and teach them campaigning skills.

The Momentum personality cult is a parody of Hitler Youth and the Junior Spies and Youth League in Orwell's 1984. Momentum has already changed its rules to allow activists to use violence, they are consolidating political power through their puppet party leader and anyone who disagrees with their far left politics is relentlessly undermined and attacked.

While it's amusing to watch the Labour Party put so much effort into fighting itself and becoming more unelectable by the minute, they have crossed a watershed by directly targeting children for indoctrination. There are laws against child propaganda in the education system, perhaps it's time to do the same for political parties? There aren't many things more sinister than lessons in political activism for children by a political party.

Let's put the EU to the back of the queue and get on with Brexit

Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia have threatened to veto any trade deal with the UK that limits the right of their citizens to work in the UK.

More than 80% of our trade is domestic trade and just 8-9% is with the EU. That 8-9% of trade with the EU is subjected to an effective 7% tariff because of the cost of membership compared to just 3% under WTO rules.

Rather than wasting time trying to secure access to the expensive single market, the British government should be putting its efforts into securing new trade deals with countries that want to trade rather than play games. The cheap pound and renewed optimism of the UK being open for business again once we've left the EU has given a welcome boost to the UK's export markets and with the world's biggest and fastest growing economies lining up to negotiate trade deals we need to just put the EU to the back of the queue and face the future on our on terms.
