Delingpole: Boris's Sinister Henchman Dominic Cummings Exerts His Iron Grip

There is blood all over the carpet of 10 Downing Street today. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has asserted his authority in his first Cabinet reshuffle -- or rather his sinister henchman, Chief Special Advisor Dominic Cummings has -- and all ministers not on board with the new project have been ruthlessly defenestrated.

Delingpole: My 48 Hours of Hell with the Brexit 'Knuckledraggers'

If you haven't read the Independent's hilariously bitteraccount of the Brexit Day celebrations you absolutely must! It captures, I think, better than any article I have ever read why it was that the Remoaners lost and why the Brexiteers (eventually) won.

Delingpole: Rejoice! Rejoice! Brexit Day Is Finally Here!

"This day is called the Feast of Brexit. He that outlives the massive Nigel Farage bash in Parliament Square, and comes safe home, will stand a tiptoe when this day is named and rouse him at the name of Brexit Day!"

Delingpole: Welcome to Boris's Blackout Britain...

Britain's prospects under Boris Johnson are obviously much, much better than they would have been under Jeremy Corbyn. But there's one area especially, I fear, where this Conservative administration is going to come seriously unstuck.

Delingpole: 'Top Barrister Beats Fox to Death Wearing a Kimono'

"Prominent barrister beats fox to death wearing a kimono." This, believe it or not, is the biggest news story in Britain today. It was prompted by a barrister's arguably ill-advised announcement onTwitter that, while dressed in a kimono, he had beaten to death with a baseball bat a fox that was trying to eat the chickens in his London garden.

Delingpole: Boris Johnson and the Green Death

In the days beforeDoctor Whogot woke and went broke, there was a famous storyline in which the Doctor faced gigantic maggots spewing deadly radioactive green slime. Just like George Monbiot, the maggots lived in Wales.

Delingpole: Rejoice! Rejoice! Britain Just Dodged the Marxist Bullet!

So Britain doesn't, after all, want to be run by an antisemitic, terrorist-supporting Marxist and his gang of nasty, aggressive, intolerant, historically illiterate Social Justice Warriors who think the only problem with Communism is that it hasn't been tried properly yet.

Delingpole: Climategate 10 Years On – The Bastards Have Got Away With It!

Climategate was the biggest scandal in the history of climate science. Modesty forbids me from identifying the guy who broke the story in the mainstream media -- ten years ago this month -- took it viral on the internet and brought it to worldwide prominence.

Delingpole: 'Don't Be a Drama Queen About Climate Change' Verstappen Tells F1

Could there be any profession less eco-friendly than Formula 1 motor-racing? Dutch F1 driver Max Verstappen doesn't think so. And now he is taking a stand against those of his competitors who have come over all green and squeamish about the ethical implications of motor sport.

Delingpole: A Sinister, Nebulous Shadow Government Is Holding Brexit Hostage

The 11 justices of the Supreme Court are subject to little such scrutiny. Hitherto, Britain's political and legal institutions have been run and regulated on the basis that their denizens will act in good faith, rather than - like the Supreme Court today - like activists for their preferred political cause.

Delingpole: Abolishing Eton - Great Idea, Labour! Go For It!

Eton has produced some of the most squishy, politically-correct, Remainer surrender monkey sellouts in the entirety of the Establishment, including the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby; Woke Prince Harry; Dave Cameron.
