PREVIOUSLY, I WARNED that any deal made by this Government (and for that matter the opposition) would take the form of a Norway (minus, minus) deal so rotten as to have made remaining in the EU a relative walk in the park. I was wrong, very wrong, it seems. It is now evident that matters are, and perhaps always have been, much worse than this. Much worse than perhaps any of us could have predicted. If all the present indicators are pointing in the direction it seems they are, then it is becoming increasingly apparent that the Government, and most of the present inhabitants of the House of Commons (and Lords, naturally), had intended, all along, to thwart Brexit altogether........

IN THE WAKE OF THE UK REFERENDUM result, the US election of Trump, and the looming Brexit calamity, the extreme-left has become increasingly deranged. As right-wing politics, driven by rational thinking and simple appeals to common-sense, make greater and greater inroads so extremists on the political left are becoming evermore desparate. This has nowhere been better evidenced that in the behaviour and actions of 'Hope not Hate' and it's activists. Posing as an 'advocacy group' (like another collection of extremists…Read More
IT'S PROBABLY POINTLESS to spell out the utter betrayal of Brexit that Theresa May is attempting to thrust upon the UK – if you’re reading this then chances are you’re already well and truly familiar with her appalling display of grovelling at the feet of her EU overlords. Moreover, we already spelt out this betrayal in an earlier Spotlight News report and predicted, accurately, what kind of Brexit the British public would be getting – yes folks you read it here first,…Read More
IT HAS, IN RECENT YEARS, become all too apparent just how much of everyday life is now poisoned by the frothing, retarded, regressive political left. What has perhaps been a little less obvious (and only ‘perhaps’) is how infiltration by the extreme left is also poisoning many sports and sporting events.What some might find slightly disconcerting here is that it’s not the sports men and women themselves that are becoming arguably problematic - it is the collective audience that attend these…Read More
AS WE HAVE POINTED OUT elsewhere, the now unhinged left and their propaganda machines (e.g. BBC, CNN, LBC, the Guardian, etc.) are almost pathologically committed to supporting misguided notions of multiculturalism, diversity, collectivism, and globalism, etc. Consequently, they are at least complicit in things like the promotion of uncontrolled immigration policies, the introduction of Islamic blasphemy laws by stealth, and a unique protection for the ‘religion of peace’. To further these ends the left obsessed mainstream media (MSM) dedicate themselves... Read More
IN THE WAKE of that unfolding drama in the run up to the recent appointment of American supreme court judge Brett Kavanaugh (which, for brevity, I will not reiterate here but assume familiarity) it is difficult to find something fresh to say, something that hasn’t already been said before. That the accusations of attempted rape levelled at Kavanaugh have been thoroughly investigated by the FBI, who apparently found no evidence to ground or substantiate the claims made by his accuser,…Read More
THE REGRESSIVE LEFT ARE ECSTATIC, beside themselves, and triumphant, as they celebrate the 'freedom' that Saudi men have now gifted to their women. Oh what progress this is for women's rights, for the casting off of chains and shackles, so long endured by women in that barbaric part of the world. The BBC, Sky News, the Guardian, Independent, and a whole host of other rampant left-wing media propaganda machines have gone into overdrive - how gracious, how merciful, how caring are…Read More
It should strike one as odd that here in Britain a method for slaughtering animals that appears far less humane than it need be, remains in practice. The question, then, is why has the ritual practice of Halal slaughter, required according to dictates of Islamic doctrine, not been outlawed? And why are the sensitives on the left not 'offended' by the unnecssary suffering it causes?
In a supreme effort to censor opposition left-wing zealots are pushing harder than ever to close down contrary opinion and rational debate. The assault is ramping up as they continue their campaign to label certain expressions of free speech as hate speech and, therefore by default, a hate crime. Here is why libertarians everywhere should fight 'tooth and nail' against this shifting war on words of freedom...
In this article we examine the growing rise in diagnoses of mental disorders in children. Focus is placed on a deluded and pathetic liberal left that appear increasingly to use these contentious diagnoses to excuse their own parenting inadequacies and failure to take proper control of their children.
It is difficult these days to find or partake in activities with an intrinsic entertainment value, intended purely as amusement, that also remain unaffected by the influences of politics or so-called 'social justice'. Yet, at the same time, we are witnessing rising terrorism involving repeated attacks even on children in the UK and across the globe.
1. A QUESTION OF NEGLECT? In this four part series we examine one of the most enduring mysteries of modern times - the disappearance of three year old Madeleine McCann. However, the spotlight falls this time not on theories about the disappearance itself but on questions of neglect, culpability, and responsibility .
2. INVESTIGATING MADELEINE'S DISAPPEARANCE. In this episode we take a temporary departure from issues of neglect to examine some aspects of the investigation into Madeleine's disappearance and the actions and behaviour of those involved including the police, media, and what we refer to as 'Team McCann'.
3. INFLUENTIAL FRIENDS: THE McCANN'S SUPPORT NETWORK. In this episode we return to the issue of neglect. However, focus also turns toward the extent of Team McCann's influence in constraining, or systematically avoiding awkward, ' exasperating ', facts and questions regarding Madeleine's care and disappearance.
4. A MISPLACED 'DUTY OF CARE'? In this episode we examine again the accusations of neglect levelled against Madeleine's parents. This time, however, the spotlight falls upon aspects of the known facts relevant to the McCann's duty to ensure a safe environment for their children - and how this might have been neglected.
This series, presented in three parts, examines a number of arguments for and against a UK ban on wearing the burqa (and similar Islamic face coverings) in public places. Reasons typically offered are ultimately rejected as untenable. However, it's further argued that there remains one powerful and compelling reason we absolutely must ban the burqa...
In this, the second of a three part series, we examine the reasons more often given for why a burqa ban should be enshrined in law - including perhaps the most popular of these, the threat it might pose for national security. However, it may surprise the reader to discover that these popular attempts at justifying a burqa ban are shown to be both implausible and unconvincing.
In this, the third and final part of the series, we highlight compelling reasons for banning the burqa in public places in the UK (and any other civilised country). In sketching the core issues at stake it is shown that this Islamic dress code, specifically, has absolutely no place whatsoever in modern Western society and should be legally prohibited as soon as possible.
