- A Vote on Article 50 Will Show Which ‘Remoaner’ MPs Despise Democracy
Instead of all the pessimism about the Supreme Court case, perhaps we ought to look forward to an Article 50 vote. It will show once and for all which MPs believe in their role as the people’s representative, and those who despise democracy altogether

The First Ministers of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland can contribute to the Brexit deal by consulting with the Government, rather than voting on the final package.

- Leave Lies? Remainers Need To Look In The Mirror
It is about time us Brexiteers challenged this ridiculous narrative of leave lies and remain truths. We voted ‘Leave’ for control over the laws of this country, and the patronising suggestion we are gullible idiots is quite frankly ridiculous.

- Brexit is an Opportunity For Britain To Take a Leading Role in Reinventing NATO
Last Wednesday, in his ‘State of the Union’ address, the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker attempted to put forward an upbeat vision of the EU. Largely ignoring the Brexit-sized elephant, Juncker instead chose to stick to his tried and tested approach: “The European project continues. Let’s choose to look forward. Be positive.” Get Britain Out questions whether simply ignoring such a major setback is a wise move, but it seems Juncker is determined to continue to try and put a positive spin on things. No matter what the question is, the answer for Juncker is always the same – more Europe.

Brexit will enable the UK to throw off the EU shackles. The increasing demand for British goods and services from Commonwealth nations has the potential to boost the UK economy for years to come.

- Higher Phone Bills Inside the EU
It’s true the EU will – by June 2017 – have abolished the difference in cost between using your phone in this country and in another EU country, with the process of harmonising the prices having already begun. On the face of it this sounds like a rare EU success story, but rather than looking at the headline of this policy, it is important to understand who pays for this reduction in fees. You!

- Remain Means an End to An Independent Britain
