UKIP After Brexit

UKIP After Brexit

Since the snap election UKIP has entered a new terrain of wilderness. Not only does the party lack its raison d’être, it lacks leadership and a message. No longer do we hear UKIP described as “the fourth party” of British politics. More»

Tory Freefall

Tory Freefall

It is now over a year since Theresa May came to power. She did come to high office on the back of an electoral victory. Nor was she even elected by Tory members. May was simply in the right place at the right time. But now she is in the wrong place at the wrong time. More»

The Power of Memes

The Power of Memes

We’ve all seen them on social media. And we’ve all shared them. A photo or a cartoon posted with a message superimposed on it in big, white capital letters. Often it’s an in-joke, a piece of satire, or even a political statement. All memes really say one thing: share this post. More»

Britain in Crisis

Walking home the night of the attacks at London Bridge and Borough Market, I came to a pedestrian crossing where a man shouted from his car “Fuck terrorists!” as he passed by. A small befuddled crowd nearby muttered to each other: “Did he just say ‘fuck tourists’?” More»

Left Keynesianism vs. Social Thatcherism

Left Keynesianism vs. Social Thatcherism

Jeremy Corbyn has played his cards well in challenging Theresa May to take part in the leaders’ debate.
