Politicians could engage the public. But they won't. NEW
Michael Heaver's Blog 2 Years, 1 Month, 1 Week, 5 Days, 16 Hours, 32 Minutes ago
Be honest: how many of you vote at for the best candidate at election time? The truth is that Presidential-style politics has become a permanent fixture in British politics, and one which has meant we generally vote for parties and party leaders, rat...
Immigration: political class live in a different Britain. NEW

How can it be that when 79%+ of the public oppose opening Britain's borders to Bulgaria and Romania, both Coalition government parties and the opposition party all support it? The reality is that those running the country are desensitised f...

Grant Shapps: grammar school boy done good. NEW
Michael Heaver's Blog 2 Years, 10 Months, 3 Weeks, 6 Days, 20 Hours, 21 Minutes ago
The rise of Grant Shapps to Conservative Party Chairman today marks a high point in his career as a guy who came from a normalish background. But it is likely that in forthcoming years, reshuffles at government level will find it increasingly hard to...
Why keep Anders Breivik alive? NEW
Michael Heaver's Blog 2 Years, 11 Months, 1 Week, 1 Day, 10 Hours, 34 Minutes ago
77 lives, mostly very young lives, were ended by Anders Breivik. Another 240 were injured as he bombed and shot innocent people. He isn't insane. He's an evil human being who committed pre-meditated murder on the basis of his own warped world view.
Conservatives are getting very rattled about UKIP. NEW
Michael Heaver's Blog 2 Years, 11 Months, 2 Weeks, 3 Days, 7 Hours, 9 Minutes ago
So Daniel Hannan, the Conservative Party's only anti-EU MEP, wants an electoral pact with UKIP at the next General Election. This is significant. It demonstrates the increasing popularity of UKIP and the likely impact it will have at the next Genera...
Britain's foreign criminal base is a revolving-door. NEW
Michael Heaver's Blog 2 Years, 11 Months, 2 Weeks, 4 Days, 10 Hours, 32 Minutes ago
There was an interesting documentary last night on Channel 4, the topic being pickpockets in London. These uncaring individuals pick out victims to nick items from, in many cases the type of items that hold on them irreplaceable photos and family vid...
Jubilee identity. NEW
Michael Heaver's Blog 3 Years, 1 Month, 4 Weeks, 1 Day, 4 Hours, 13 Minutes ago
The last few days have been tremendous in terms of British national identity. With the Jubilee celebrations, Union Jack flags have been displayed everywhere and ordinary folks for once, aren't fearful of displaying national pride. Our flag, for now,...
Clegg patronises every working class kid. NEW
Michael Heaver's Blog 3 Years, 2 Months, 1 Week, 2 Days, 6 Hours, 1 Minute ago
Nick Clegg’s argument that top Universities should lower their entry grades for state school kids is one of the most obscene things I’ve ever heard, even from the Liberal Democrats. Snobbish grandstanding about poor kids being second class dumb...
Will Ed Miliband really have the stomach for an EU referendum? NEW
Michael Heaver's Blog 3 Years, 2 Months, 1 Week, 5 Days, 6 Hours, 22 Minutes ago
I'm pretty dubious about the talk of a potential In/Out referendum apparently being considered by the Labour Party's top brass. Sure, it would split the Conservatives massively and give David Cameron a huge headache. But ultimately, would someone as...
The Farage speeches are a global phenomenon. NEW
Michael Heaver's Blog 3 Years, 2 Months, 3 Weeks, 1 Day, 8 Hours, 17 Minutes ago
It always strikes me that when I speak to even the mostly vaguely Eurosceptic Conservative or for that matter Labour supporter, there is near enough always a glaring admiration for Nigel Farage. Perhaps I am biased, after all he is the guy who inspir...

The EU is breeding extremism. NEW
Michael Heaver's Blog 3 Years, 2 Months, 3 Weeks, 4 Days, 7 Hours, 54 Minutes ago
Those who apologise and argue for the European Union's existence and expansion have long used the argument that it has helped make Europe more peaceful. But as it mugs taxpayers for all they have and essentially forces hostile takeovers of national...
The Tory Party doesn't own conservatives. NEW
Michael Heaver's Blog 3 Years, 2 Months, 3 Weeks, 6 Days, 18 Hours, 49 Minutes ago
The Plymouth Conservatives reckon that UKIP 'are to blame' for their defeat. They have no one but to blame but themselves. Clearly not enough of the electorate rated what their candidates or Party was offering in the area. You could say the same fo...
UKIP's opinion polls translate into votes. NEW
Michael Heaver's Blog 3 Years, 2 Months, 4 Weeks, 1 Day, 8 Hours, 49 Minutes ago
There can be no doubt now: the opinion polls that have tracked UKIP's steady rise to between 8% - 11% are right. Yes, the Party did not win hundreds of seats as some will inevitably spin. But look at the facts. The seats that UKIP did stand in saw t...
End the EU Airport Queue. NEW
Michael Heaver's Blog 3 Years, 3 Months, 16 Hours ago
Though still relatively young, I retain the romantic notion that citizens of a country should be able to get in to their country with greater ease than those from outside of it. Of course with Britain's luxurious EU membership, British nationality h...
UKIP level with LibDems in London! NEW
Michael Heaver's Blog 3 Years, 3 Months, 2 Days, 19 Hours, 57 Minutes ago
Despite the media promoting the Greens and virtually ignoring UKIP in London's election race, Nigel Farage's Party have surged to 8% on the London list vote - equal third with the Liberal Democrats. If that translates on Thursday, UKIP will see two...
Is Cameroonism just an electoral liability? NEW
Michael Heaver's Blog 3 Years, 3 Months, 2 Days, 20 Hours, 17 Minutes ago
The idea was simple: the Tory brand of 'nastiness' was toxic and needed to be flushed out of the blue rosette. 'Dave' was the man to make the Conservative Party electable again after repeated drubbings by Labour at the polls. Thatcherism was to be e...
UKIP's popularity seems to have exploded. NEW
Michael Heaver's Blog 3 Years, 3 Months, 5 Days, 22 Hours, 14 Minutes ago
Nevermind yet another YouGov opinion poll putting UKIP at 9%, level with the LibDems, despite far less media coverage. Last night's Question Time performance from Nigel Farage saw something very unusual happen. Twitter exploded in reaction to Farage...
Being Eurosceptic but pro-unelected Lords is madness. NEW
Michael Heaver's Blog 3 Years, 3 Months, 1 Week, 1 Day, 20 Hours, 2 Minutes ago
The costly, undemocratic beast from Brussels must be slain. That is now pretty mainstream among right-wing politicians and commentators. So why are they so many of them so keen to defend the current make-up of the House of Lords? Democracy is democr...
