Introducing the archives - article from Michael Julien

This post is introduce our subscribers to the archives that we have built up over the past two years which now number over 1,500 and include articles by leading authors from around the world on politics, economics, defence & security, education & training and last but not least energy & the environment. Click here for you to see our Home page: was established to highlight issues that have been neglected in the UK over decades and need to be rectified for the benefit of future generations, and to take advantage of the freedoms now available to us following our departure from the EU. This will allow the UK to assume its rightful role as a global power given its position as one of the world’s leading financial centres and as a vital member of NATO.

Here are some articles as examples:


The UK needs a new way to pay for health care - revisiting reports from the Tax Payers' Alliance. .The Telegraph have published two articles on this subject which we have added to our website as follows:

NHS will cease to exist if we only ever throw taxpayers’ money at it, warns Labour by Laura Donnelly, Health Editor, for The Telegraph - 02.11.22. Wes Streeting says health service needs ‘significant additional resources’ to reduce backlogs, but a boost to funding is not the only answer.

Private healthcare can save the NHS, but only if we stop demonising it - by Karol Sikora for The Telegraph - 02.11.22. If those who can afford it take up the offer, then that frees up space for everybody else in the public system.

Energy & Environment

The UK needs to abandon the deeply flawed analysis that led to the Climate Change Act in 2008 and the subsequent commitment to NetZero policies, which together are having a ruinous effect on economic prosperity, the cost and standard of living and the personal freedoms of UK citzens. As a sovereign state, the UK is free to plot its own course and to repeal such legislation. At BIB online we highlight the informed scientific and economic rationale for a complete overhaul of the UK’s Energy and Environmental policies.

As first steps we believe (a) that the idea of a “climate crisis” is unsupported by observational evidence, (b) that recent modest warming and greening of the planet is beneficial and (c) that the NetZero energy transformation being pursued by the government requires the roll out of commercially unproven technologies on an unrealistic timescale, and is not in the interests of UK citizens.

Defence & Security

Russia Blasts Ukrainian Cities, Including Biggest Use of Advanced Missiles - By Andrew E. Kramer for The New York Times - 10.03.23.

KYIV, Ukraine — Russia launched its biggest aerial barrage in weeks on Thursday, blasting targets across Ukraine with a diverse array of weapons, including its newest hypersonic missiles, in what it said was retaliation for an armed incursion into Russian territory last week. Of 81 missiles fired, six were hypersonic weapons, among Russia’s newest and most advanced, which are all but impossible to shoot down.


Christianity’s retreat has left the West vulnerable to harmful new beliefs - Telegraph - 23.12.22.

Our societies are in a severe muddle, which makes for fertile ground for woke zealotry says Charles Moore. This story, the only headline explicitly about “causing harm”, did not involve any of the above. It concerned the website of Stanford, probably – apart from two or three on the East coast – the greatest university in the United States.

According to the newspaper report, Stanford’s website administrators have embarked on an “Elimination of Harmful Language Initiative”. Under this initiative, users of the website must not be so described because the word “users” might make some of them think they were being compared with drug addicts (who are themselves better described as “people who deal with substance abuse issues”).

Education and Training

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill "lacks ambition" - by Jane Hickie for Comment Central

After speaking to Professor Josie Fraser of the Open University about the importance of the Lifelong Learning Entitlement (LLE) in the Government's Skills and Post-16 Education Bill, Jane Hickie argues that the Bill currently lacks ambition, and that it needs broadening in order to ensure a sustainable post-pandemic recovery led by skills and training.

Government backed action to support private training initiatives should also be part of the policy mix: "...public investment in apprenticeships, traineeships, adult skills programmes and technical education remains a vital ingredient to make the economic recovery sustainable after the pandemic. This autumn's Spending Review will offer answers on the scale of investment available following the measures implemented in July 2020's Plan for Jobs but in the meantime, ministers are hoping that the Skills and Post-16 Education Bill will also make a difference."
