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

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


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

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


A Valley View: Is it all Personality Politics from Here? by George Wilcox

Monday, May 29, 2017

If you wander around the constituency of Shipley, located in the Airedale Valley just North of Bradford in West Yorkshire, you’ll find, as is the norm across the country, the occasional row of houses littered with the distinctive red of the ‘Vote Labour’ signs. Some are sellotaped to living room windows whereas others have been planted into the ground and fastened on wooden beams.   Read more


Snap Election 2017: Scotland at Stake by Gemma Forrester

Sunday, May 28, 2017

The 2014 independence referendum heightened political engagement in Scotland like never before. Despite the majority vote to remain within the United Kingdom, the question of independence continues to dominate Scotland’s political landscape.  Read more


In an Age of Terror and Turmoil, Foreign Policy is the Key. So Why Haven’t the Conservatives given us one? by Chris Lascelles

Friday, May 26, 2017


We currently live in a world in which long-term conflicts and terrorism are capable of destabilising political structures on a global scale. The effect of the rise of ISIS, the wars in Syria and Iraq, and global terrorism upon the election of Donald Trump and the Brexit vote are plain to see. The only way to genuinely combat these issues is through clear, effective foreign policy. The “strong and stable” mantra doesn’t cut it here.   Read more
