It’s time to turn up the heat on the EU by accelerating our post-Brexit trade talks

As the clock struck 11pm last Friday night, I was on stage in Parliament Square in front of a sea of tens of thousands elated Brexit supporters. Looking at hundreds of large Union Jacks fluttering brightly against the night sky, I felt a rush of optimism and confidence about what lies ahead.

WHAT’s the point of inheritance tax? I only ask, because it is the most hated of all taxes, consumes so much time and energy, and generates relatively little for the Treasury that there must be a really, really good reason to keep it.

The Tories must form an electoral pact with the Brexit Party – or else they risk being annihilated

After the Brecon and Radnorshire by-election, one thing is very clear: the two-party political system has failed this country. Friday’s results showed just how much electoral trouble both the Conservatives and Labour are now in.

Two-party politics or that ‘new car feeling’ at the European Elections? It’s up to the voters

Voters have a clear choice on Thursday in the European elections. There is a fresh, bright option on the ballot paper to consider. So will you vote for more of the same, two-party political set up, with the same people, the same broken promises, the same tired structures, the same party games and the same waste of our taxpayers cash?

Theresa May had always repeated what I have known to be true in business: “no deal is better than a bad deal”.

It’s time to stop this betrayal of the people and relaunch the Brexit campaign

When we set up Leave Means Leave after the referendum, we thought it might be needed for six months. We hoped that we could trust the Government to do the job they had been instructed to do by the British people. People knew what they were voting for.

Forget Brexit and party scandals – business is booming

Three months ago, I wrote about the need to prepare for a very socialist Labour government. Since then, both the Labour party and the Tories have inflicted all sorts of harm on themselves thanks to their respective associations with antisemitism and Windrush.

We will not sit by as an unelected cartel tries to dismantle Brexit bit by bit

The challenges to Brexit yesterday in the unelected House of Lords were a direct attack on British democracy. By acting in such a manner, the Lords are accelerating the case for their own demise; more and more people would now view this as good news.

Time to get our heads around idea of Labour government

Property has always had a love-hate relationship with the Labour Party. At times the industry, both residential and commercial, as well as construction and infrastructure, does very well. Remember that at other times, though, Labour causes pain, disruption and chaos.

Brussels cannot be allowed to boss Britain around — it’s time we showed how ready we are to walk away | The Telegraph
