And now, the end is near

The odds of Boris Johnson remaining Prime Minister in 2022 are now 1/41. If you think he will stay until 2023 you can get odds of 29/1 or until 2024 37/1. This means we are going to have a new Prime Minister soon. There is no point any longer debating …

Thatcher: Villain or Hero, Green or not?

Margaret Thatcher was Prime Minister of the UK from 1979 to 1990.  She is remembered by the Left as a villain and by most of the rest of the population as a good Prime Minister. The case made by the Left is that she devastated British industry, especially coal,  and …

The only difference between Hartlepool and Hamilton is nationalism

The North East of England is the place that feels most similar to Scotland. It is post-industrial like the Central Belt. The accent and dialect are similar as is the culture. If by an accident of history, the North East of England were part of Scotland no one would notice …

Conservatives must cease being declinist

The problem with Scottish Conservatism is structural rather than personal. Ruth Davidson is better suited to leadership than either Douglas Ross or Jackson Carlaw. But this is because she is first rate politician. It is not because her ideas are any different from theirs. They all more or less agree …

Thatcherism – the only way forward

Margaret Thatcher once said that “there can be no liberty unless there is economic liberty.” She was right. For far too long before Margaret Thatcher took office there was very little economic liberty in the United Kingdom. We had relied on the same school of Keynesian Economic thought for much …

Choosing books

We are living in strange times.  Times where history, or rather British and English history, is being erased. Statues are being pulled down and or defaced.  MPs, local Councils and Common Purpose police are in thrall to extreme Leftist agitators.  They are literally, on their knees in a symbol of …

Thank you for Brexit Day

The day is finally upon us. Today, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland leaves the millstone of the European Union and steps forward a free nation into the world. Today, history is made. Here at the Daily Globe, we could not be happier. As our readers know, …

Do you remember the 1970s?

Do you remember the 1970s? It was when Britain reached peak decline. I was at primary school, but still those years have stayed with me like no others.  Do you remember how we had three television channels? In fact, my family only had BBC1 and we could only watch it on …

Top five UK Prime Ministers

I’ve decided it’s been a while since I’ve done an article so I thought I’d put together the next in a series of top fives I began a while back with my article on British Monarchs. This time we’ll go for something much more political shall we and talk about …

Why Socialism Occupies the Moral Low Ground

Socialism occupies the moral low ground in every way. They expropriate what successful people have worked for. Socialism is based on all people being equally poor, with everything possible being owned by the state. The only way to achieve this is to expropriate (steal) from rich people. You can see …

Three Cheers for Sajid Javid!

The Daily Globe sends its warmest congratulations to Sajid Javid on becoming Home Secretary. Unlike so many of the Prime Minister’s cabinet appointees who are uninspired May loyalists, Mr. Javid is an excellent choice to hold one of the great offices of State. Originally from a modest Pakistani immigrant background, …

A brief stop to smell the roses

The goal of the Daily Globe is to bring our readers an analysation of the news that brings perspective to events. We do not claim to report the news because frankly we don’t (and couldn’t afford to) employ journalists. Rather, we try to assemble a collection of writers who think …

1967: The Conservative Record

It’s too often ignored just how big a part some Conservatives played in the fight to decriminalise homosexual acts in 1967. We have let section 28 overshadow the work of good men and women and the 50th Anniversary of the 67 Act is as good a time as any to …

Short Attention Span Politics

We live in a world requiring constant affirmation that we are actually in it by way of pandering to our impulsive behaviour patterns and the need for change. Digital devices have become the primary source of the provision of change, of course, with very little reading or scholarship entering our …

Betrayal of Britain Chapter 3 Part 1- Path to Devolution

In the twenty years that followed the 1992 general election, debate on the constitutional framework of the country and ultimately on the Scottish independence referendum was conveniently limited to “The UK”, “the Union” or “the United Kingdom” but not “Great Britain”. This was new. As we shall see below, the …

Conservative Party Conference 2016: The Verdict

Overall, this year’s Conservative Party Conference was a success. It was so wonderful to see the Conservative Party finally be united in support of Brexit. Guido Fawkes said it right when he said Theresa May’s Brexit speech was the speech many of us have hoped for decades to hear a Prime …

Brexit was just the end of the beginning

The Brexit vote was about returning power to the British people. Remoaners can spin and cry and complain but polls confirm the British people understood what they were voting for: restoring sovereignty. It was a great victory for all of us who campaigned for Brexit and we here at the …
