I'm looking forward to seeing what Carswell does next, because surely now everything he stands for has been destroyed. He can no longer play the 'I'm a great democrat' card - because he's not. He can no longer argue that politics is a cartel dominated by people who don't want to give up power - because he is one of them. He can no longer lambast his fellow politicians for breaking promises made to voters - because he has done the same.
We found that around half of us (49%) reported experiencing anxiety specifically in relation to the US election and following inauguration of Donald Trump as president, with 29% going as far as saying they have experienced a 'fair amount' or 'great deal' of anxiety.
The reduction in NHS workers from abroad, coupled with the departure of EU workers and a dramatic reduction in British students taking up nursing and midwifery, may result in many more scenes of disastrous conditions in hospitals, with more patients being put at risk waiting on hospital corridors.
One must never underestimate the role of the political economy and its influence on a business strategy. Government and regulation are the directors of the global economic theatre. The interconnectedness of which means that decisions in one part of the world have a rippling effect on the other.
It is obvious that Tony Blair is using the approach of Brexit as an opportunity to attempt to force his way back into the political world. He has shown himself to be an opportunist, so this isn't too surprising. What is shocking, however, is the fact that the main news broadcasters are giving him so many interviews.
The white working classes do indeed face barriers, disadvantages and even discrimination in Britain today. Politicians seeking to win their votes in the referendum or in the next general election will talk a lot about the white working class but we rarely hear their own voices, whether as Parliamentary candidates, Question Time panellists or comment authors in newspapers.
Recent figures show that prices in the UK are now rising at an annual rate of more than 3%, brought on by the vote for Brexit. We've also heard warnin...
British, European and American politicians will have to manage groups who see the world in very different ways, protect their jobs and enable them to live their lives in a rapidly changing, digital economy where success means less barriers to travel and trade. Trump and Brexit won their elections on the back of declarations to protect those who see their future within a less open state, that they can recreate the world before globalisation and that international free trade has damaged their lives. It's a gamble which is unlikely pay off.
Like more than 80% of academics and a substantial majority of young people who will be most affected by Brexit, I voted to remain in the European Union.
The government's Brexit negotiating position is ambitious - how would the British public feel if the EU offered the UK less favourable terms?
So we should fasten our life jackets, refuse to panic, and do everything we can to keep the ship afloat as we ride out the storm. Eventually, the seas will calm, and the winds will abate. Let's meet again on dry land.
What would be the result of zero tariffs for our British lamp manufacturer? They would be able to import their components with ease, but their exports would hit the same costs as one faces now when trading overseas.
The next few years are going to be challenging but they offer the opportunity and, I would contend, the necessity for charities and the VCS to go back to basics and the original purpose and press their cause fearlessly.
Why the SNP should be seen off. It is a jack-in-a-box time of year. No sooner had the Government obtained the authority of both Houses of Parliamen...
It was the busiest week in politics since, well, the last one, and the Huff Post team had plenty to consider. Philip Hammond's Budget u-turn, a new call for Scottish Independence referendum, and David Davis admitting a lack of planning for Brexit were all key talking points.
Today we have tabled two Brexit-related motions for debate and votes if necessary in the House of Lords. I hope the government takes these motions in the spirit that they've been tabled. Yes, Labour wants to hold Ministers to account over the guarantees and assurances they have given to date. But we can also be useful.
