Last week, a campaign was launched to promote the most extreme proposals ever officially advocated by the abortion lobby: abortion up to birth, and for any reason.

Oscar Wilde said that the best way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it. Unfortunately many Brits use this method for getting rid of the fascist temptation. When they find something wrong with Her Majesty’s government, they turn their thoughts not to restoring history’s greatest constitution butRead More
