Add the Daily Express to the roll of honor for the United Kingdom.  Add this newspaper to the names of Churchill, Nelson, Wellington, Pitt the Elder and Younger, and Wilberforce as true patriots.  For the Daily Express today called for the United Kingdom to withdraw from both the EU and the European Court of Human Rights.  The paper also has a petition drive supporting withdrawal.


The famous and symbolic Crusader who adorns our masthead will become the figurehead of the struggle to repatriate British sovereignty from a political project that has comprehensively failed.

More truth to the British people:

Following the debacle of the Lisbon Treaty – disgracefully imposed upon the public without the referendum they were promised by the three main political parties – many had expected matters European to take a lower profile in British politics.

While there are some very fine pro-sovereignty Tories, the only legitimate political party that calls for withdrawal from the EU is the UKIP!  The Daily Express also calls for withdrawal from the ECHR:

The European Court of Human Rights has continued to trample on British justice, preventing the deportation of terror suspects and demanding that convicted prisoners are given the vote.

Withdrawal from the EU should be accompanied by a withdrawal from the jurisdiction of this alien, pan-European tribunal so that matters of British justice are decided once again in British courts.

The Daily Express also calls for a new United Kingdom, in language echoing Ronald Reagan’s Shining City of a Hill:

But Britain is a land apart: A precious stone set in the silver sea, as Shakespeare so evocatively put it; a realm with a glorious island story stretching back a thousand years, with links to every continent and a language taken up throughout the world.

It was Britain that brought us due process, trial by jury, inalienable rights, and self-government. May other periodicals take up the Daily Express’s banner.  In the next by-election in Oldham East, remember the UKIP!  Remember to my fellow American readers:  The EU is not our friend!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
