On the day UKIP finally chose its new leader to replace Nigel Farage, an unprecedented thunderstorm hit Britain. Not the thunderstorm that dumped almost half a month's rain in the east, south and south-east of England within hours.

In less than a week, in the space of just a few days, PM Theresa May has told off not one, but two of her cabinet ministers. David Davis, the so-called 'Minister for Brexit' and Liam Fox, the Minister for International Trade. What is happening at the top of government?

Brexit Is No Blank Cheque For Eurosceptics

Benjamin Butterworth | Posted 07.09.2016 | UK Politics
Benjamin Butterworth

If those of us backed remain don't make our arguments clearly and forcefully through the impending negotiations, we risk writing a blank cheque for the eurosceptics. During the referendum, the Leave camp were at pains to tell us they didn't know to set out specifics of a post-Brexit Britain, because this wasn't a manifesto. They won the EU vote - now they must be held to account on the ideas put forward.

Whether You Voted Leave or Remain, Thank Goodness Nick Clegg Is Brexit Scrutineer-in-Chief

Owen Bennett | Posted 27.07.2016 | UK Politics
Owen Bennett

It's not as if Labour is able to scrutinise the Three Brexiteers at the moment. The party hasn't even got a Shadow International Trade Secretary, and Emily Thornberry is having to double up as both Shadow Foreign and Shadow Brexit. Clegg therefore finds himself in the position of Scrutineer-in-Chief as the Brexiteers get to work. After a fairly terrible few years, this is the moment Nick Clegg has been waiting for.

We Can Stay Safe Without Creating a Surveillance State

Tom Watson | Posted 22.07.2016 | UK Politics
Tom Watson

The security services have an important job to do keeping us safe and they carry it out with distinction but many of us question whether mass surveillance and state snooping is a price worth paying. Judicial oversight is essential if we are to maintain the right balance between civil liberties and state power. I hope the new Prime Minister will reflect on this. Strong leaders are capable of recognising they made mistakes in the past and taking steps to rectify them.
