Women's Suffrage: 100 years on is “toxic politics” the new frontier?

Monday, February 05, 2018

One hundred years ago UK women first got the vote through the Representation of People Act 1918. It was a start but there were conditions, like age, and it did not put them on the same terms as men.   Read more


Florence Speech: Buying time with a Brexit betrayal

Saturday, September 23, 2017

My first child was born two weeks before the In/Out referendum. He will be at school bringing home maths homework I probably don’t understand by the time the UK is an independent sovereign country.  Read more


Ed's July Update: How's Mrs May's Conservative Government doing?

What was in (and out) of the 2017 Queen's Speech

Wednesday, June 21, 2017

The pomp and ceremony of the State Opening of Parliament was somewhat lacking today. Due to the change in date, there was no golden state carriage but a very nice heavily armour-plated car, with a separate one for the crown of course. Prince Philip was also absent and Prince Charles took his place beside his mother who was devoid of the usual ermine and jewels; sensible in this heatwave some may say.  Read more

GE2017: Picking the wrong fights and defying expectations

Friday, June 09, 2017

This election will go down as one of the most challenging and oddest in history. After discovering eight weeks constitutes a 'snap' election it was framed as a 'back me over Brexit' by the PM. She needed a mandate to negotiate with Brussels and other parties were trying to manouever and sabotage her efforts to get the best deal for Britain.   Read more


Does a hung parliament equal strong and stable government?

Friday, June 09, 2017

So this morning my mind goes back to the 2015 General Election campaign. That was the one where pollsters convinced us we were heading to a hung parliament again. The Conservatives even ran a poster campaign trying to frighten voters that if they supported Ed Miliband they would get the SNP as part of a deal. Well that time on election night, the exit poll provided a huge anti-climax to us political nerds; we had the nibbles and drinks prepared ready for a seat by seat race to the finish. As it was most of us put the stuff back in the cupboard and marched off to bed as the exit poll showed a conservative majority and you knew pundits would spend the next seven hours saying 'is it true' - only to be proved that it was.  Read more


An Analytical Perspective: Brexit and Election 2017 by D.W

Friday, June 02, 2017

Mrs May called a Snap Election for June 08, 2017, however previously she had no intention of calling an election until 2020. Whilst on a holiday in North Wales the decision was reached over the Easter parliamentary recess.  Read more


Talentless, toothless and at times tedious by Ben Pringle

Friday, June 02, 2017

The General Election will soon be fast upon us and has left much to the imagination in terms of policy, political manoeuvring and connecting with the general public. Billed as one of the most important votes in her lifetime, Theresa May has given off the impression in both her policy and passion that her actions do not meet her words.   Read more


Manchester Attack: Real action must follow our national grief

Thursday, May 25, 2017

Up to this point, I haven’t written anything about the appalling terrorist attack in Manchester. I know silence isn’t how a site about British politics should respond and I apologise to all our visitors, but my honest view is I was firstly, too sad and secondly, too mad to write anything.    Read more


Conservative Party Manifesto: 'Forward, Together' says Theresa May

Thursday, May 18, 2017

In the 2015 General Election there were just 428 votes between the Conservatives and Labour in Halifax. Speaking in the West Yorkshire constituency today, to launch the Conservative manifesto, was not random, it was a message that places like Halifax could turn blue.  Read more
