STEPHEN GLOVER: Want your kids to get rich? Tell them to sign up at the town hall 

Like many people of my age, I sometimes ask myself whether I took the right path in life. Would I have been happier if, when young, I had set my heart on becoming a council official? It certainly didn’t occur to me, or anyone advising me, that I should do so. In those days, self-effacing … Read more

STEPHEN GLOVER: Nicola Sturgeon is using our money in her battle to break up Britain

Like most unionists, I have long been in favour of Scotland receiving more than its fair share of public spending. If this was the price of keeping the United Kingdom in one piece, we should pay it. But is it possible that these transfers of money under the so-called Barnett formula are having the opposite … Read more

STEPHEN GLOVER: You can best judge a Prime Minister by what they do after leaving office

Over the past quarter of a century a dangerous new belief has sprung up in political circles. It is that ex-prime ministers have every right to enrich themselves as much as possible by exploiting the contacts and know-how they acquired in office. Tony Blair has done this on an epic scale. He has made tens … Read more

STEPHEN GLOVER: Boris Johnson was right to say capitalism won the vaccine war

You can take Boris Johnson out of his newspaper column and plonk him in No 10, but you can’t take the controversialist newspaper columnist out of Boris Johnson. The man who offended many people a few years ago by writing in the Daily Telegraph that Muslim women in burkas ‘look like letterboxes’ has done it … Read more

STEPHEN GLOVER: Don’t dare let this jab setback delay freedom by a single day 

The time has come for us to put Boris Johnson back on the psychiatrist’s couch, and try to get to the bottom of the enormous change that has come over him.

STEPHEN GLOVER: How will lobbing more grenades heal the Royal family rift?

Only nine days ago, Meghan and Harry launched several bazookas in the direction of the Royal Family with the assiduous assistance of Oprah Winfrey, firstly on CBS in America and then on ITV. Tens of millions of people watched as Meghan alleged that an unidentified member of the Royal Family was racist, while Harry accused … Read more

STEPHEN GLOVER: What a grisly week this has been for our country

This has been a crazy week in which the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have opened their guns on the Royal Family and the tabloid Press – and received the congratulations of the President of the United States. A week during which in many parts of our country it is deemed inexcusable to question any … Read more

STEPHEN GLOVER: So whatever Meghan Markle now says must be true (and God help anyone who disagrees!)

There are two sharply divergent views about the Duchess of Sussex. One is held by Piers Morgan, who has just left ITV’s Good Morning Britain breakfast programme in a huff. It is doubtless shared by millions of less voluble Britons. According to Mr Morgan, Meghan’s contribution to the Oprah Winfrey interview was a ‘diatribe of … Read more

STEPHEN GLOVER: Never mind the Press… the Sussexes have sensationalised their story

Prince Harry has been accused by a Government minister of having ‘blown up’ his family. Zac Goldsmith is right. The damage is enormous, and one can only salute the Queen for her brief and dignified statement last night. In their incendiary interview with Oprah Winfrey, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex set out to destroy … Read more
