JEAN-Claude Juncker says he won’t miss the British Press once we’ve left the EU. The feeling’s mutual.
He is everything that’s wrong with the European project — and why it’s so vital that we leave.

Alas, Luxembourg’s finest is annoyed that the media keep reporting on the persistent rumours that he is half-cut most of the time.
He must be to think, as he does, that the UK would have voted Remain if only HE had been involved in the referendum. Fat chance. He’d have doubled the Leave vote.

Brexiteers need to keep their eyes on the prize. Attention-seeking bores like Andrew Adonis and Alastair Campbell, plus shadowy campaign outfits, are trying their hardest to undermine Brexit.
Nobody should think this battle is won. Nobody should be complacent about political battles still to come.
And nobody who believes in a prosperous, independent nation should allow the perfect to be the enemy of the good when it comes to Britain’s departure, and walk into the Remainers’ “people’s vote” trap.
We leave in less than six months. And when we do, we’ll raise a glass. Maybe Jean-Claude will join us.

Our benefits regime needs to be firm.
But it must also be fair.

In fact, when it comes to music, it’s Britain’s institutions that are more dangerous. The BBC has decided in its infinite wisdom to publish its entire archive of classical music to compete with streaming services and record labels. Why? Just because it can?
