British Tea Party Movement to launch on Saturday

How's this for historical irony: there's a tea party movement starting in Britain.

Daniel Hannan is a writer and journalist, and has been Conservative MEP for South East England since 1999. He speaks French and Spanish and loves Europe, but believes that the EU is making its constituent nations poorer, less democratic and less free. He is the winner of the Bastiat Award for online journalism.

Labour has raised more than a trillion pounds in additional taxation since 1997. Yet, unbelievably, Gordon Brown has still managed to run up a deficit of 12.6 per cent of GDP (Greece’s is 12.7 per cent). A far lower level of taxation brought Americans out in spontaneous protest last year.

If you happen to be coming to the Conservative Spring Conference, do please pop in: the Tea Party is five minutes’ walk from the conference venue. It is, however, outside the security zone, and anyone is welcome to come. Oh, and this being England, we’ll be serving actual, you know, tea.

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

This could go international.

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."

Time for the monarchy

to go the way of the dinosaur. Parliament no more runs the UK than the Congress does the United States. Time for that to change, the UK is more a prison now than a city.
It's disgusting.

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow


that is !! Hell the whole place is a prison !!

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

Love it.
