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


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


Time To Let 16 & 17 Year Olds Vote? by Carol Jennions

Friday, June 02, 2017

The effect of the snap election on one cohort has been largely ignored. Many 15-17 year-olds feel they are being denied a say in the next parliament - one that will be sitting until many of them are working and paying taxes.   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


Come what May: An outsider’s perspective on the 2017 UK snap elections by Jorn Moeskops

Monday, May 15, 2017

My apologies if my message isn’t more upbeat to begin with. I am a foreigner, and I have only been living in the UK for the last year and a bit. Brexit took me by surprise, like for the many who were surprised to learn what Brexit really implies after the referendum.   Read more


May bangs the war drum in bid to rally the masses, but will her gamble work? by Max Quarterman

Monday, May 15, 2017

Theresa May’s aggressive stance towards the Brexit negotiation of recent weeks has demonstrated a willingness of the Conservative party to follow an age-old tactic, war wins’ votes. However, their one-dimensional approach thus far demonstrates something particularly worrying, the appetite of this government for putting the future of the UK at risk for short term political gain.   Read more
