Is the UK heading for divorce? Over one in three UK marriages ends in divorce, and with our nation in deep division over issues such as immigration, ...
If the language of this year's Conference was anything to go by, it's not just the UK's people who have "taken back control", it looks like the government plans to do the same. Energy, health, housing, the Conservative Party has plans for all. Time will obviously tell how hands-on they will be, but expect the changes to be incremental. As Jesse Norman MP, one of the new BEIS Ministers, said to one crowd, "there will be no great reveal."
To discriminate against people on the basis of their place of birth is prejudice and once upon a time it was illegal in this country. Your party shames the memory of our heritage, shames the country it claims to represent and shames me. I hope it shames you too.
The Prime Minister's speech yesterday struck many observers as an attempt to take the middle ground in British politics vacated by Labour. Appealin...
Whether we are left, or right, or centre, those of us interested in a peaceful future for ourselves, our families, and yes, even those we disagree with, should start to stand up against this kind of politics, before it is too late.
Theresa May is serious about preventing the interests of ordinary people being trumped by the powerful and the privileged she needs to do everything she can to make her government transparent; she needs to make sure that everyone's voice is heard equally; and she needs to kick big money out of politics.
I accept that the British people made this choice on 23 June. But on the other hand, as an MP elected to stand up for what I believe in - for social, economic and environmental justice - I find the prospect of Brexit genuinely frightening. It is my belief that Britain would be better off if we stayed in the EU - and that my constituents face real risks of us leaving.
The UK loves an underdog. There is something irresistible about the story of the little guy standing up to the established players and leaving them with a bloody nose, whether it is Henry Cooper putting Muhammad Ali on the mat or the Wallabies trouncing the Kiwis in rugby.
After the Prime Minister's speech to the Conservative Party conference Looked After Children are now, truly, Children in Care, in the care of all of us. To name the scandal of the social exclusion of Children in Care was a brave and necessary thing.
The Tories are attempting to steal progressive rhetoric but they can't escape the reality of their policies. Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party will hold the Tories to account, stand up for the many and oppose their unfair cuts to tax credits. The only party of the common ground in British politics is the party that will truly stand up for working people. That's the Labour Party.
He knows exactly what he's doing, but thinks we won't notice. He thinks he's so good at the talking that we won't realise in which direction he's walking. He's so excited at the prospect of occupying the political ground that Labour has (temporarily?) vacated that he can see little else. When he looks out of the Downing Street window every morning, he sees a future that is only blue.
Yes, there are a few people who get bad press, who behave in a way which drags down the image of the majority - but think of what they're fighting for, think of what needs to change - and try to imagine what on earth the Conservatives were thinking when they brought the conference to Manchester.
Put simply, chucking bricks together and hoping for the best is no solution, even if 200,000 homes were anywhere near enough to help the millions of wannabe Gen Buy. The current housing crisis is not just a supply and demand disparity (although that is an element of it).
As the Conservative Party Conference draws to a close, we have been treated to some of the worst displays of political intolerance by the British New Left since the riots which followed the General Election. However, as Conservatives, we must not allow ourselves to be intimidated, nor to simply consider such behaviour an "occupational hazard" of being right-wing in Britain today.
I listened to home secretary Theresa May's speech at the Conservative Party Conference with mounting distress and sorrow. I heard her labelling people like me who survive torture as "illegal immigrants" who abuse the system by smuggling themselves into the UK, and declare that she would institute a new "tough" system to weed out such undeserving cases.
This was all a far cry from Theresa May's hardline message yesterday. No.10 insist the PM agrees with much of what she said, but given that this debate is often about striking the right tone, it was obvious he wanted to accentuate the positive...
