Just as the Scottish result changed the face of British politics, so too will the vote in 2017. As we sail towards a particularly turbulent year, party heavyweights on all sides of the House will want to batten down the hatches and hold tight. Ukip have the most to lose, but for their leader, who has spent his life campaigning for withdrawal, I doubt the survival of the party is even his top priority right now.
Enough! E-fucking-nough. Whilst the idealistic leanings of my mind strain and yearn for Jeremy Corbyn to deliver on his mandate with the ruthless effi...
Sorry Nigel but EU law will not prohibit a properly handled nationalisation of energy utilities.
But what is there left to say? Farage has been the country's most high-profile Eurosceptic for at least ten years now. Surely everyone has heard his arguments as to why we should leave the EU? Is there anyone who could be wooed by him?
There is a strange thing happening to broadcast news, particularly and strangely obvious in the case of UK's public broadcaster, the BBC. It's 'newsta...
A concerted march against Jeremy Corbyn's candidacy for leader of Labour is in full stride across the political spectrum. Right and left, neoliberal a...
Opinion polls have been far from promising for Ukip too. A national Comres poll published last week shown Ukip slip further to 9%, their worst share since February 2013. In a late June YouGov poll for next year's Welsh Assembly elections, Ukip remained firmly in fourth place for both the constituency and region polls.
The outcome of this Hellenic crisis will probably stroll along, another five years and fifty summits later, sauntering with a glass of Ouzo in one hand and a kebab in the other. But whatever this outcome, Tsipras will be written into history, as either a political genius or an insolent and hot-headed fool. But even come the worst, at least the Captain can say he went down with his ship, hot head held high.
The book is not just about Farage and Ukip, but also about a journalist in a world he had always wanted be in, but not sure what to do once he got there. I hope pro and anti-Ukippers read the book. I think both groups will have their views challenged in some chapters and affirmed in others.
Much of the political talk this past week has been of UKIP's ineptitude. The resignation that never was has now been followed by the sacking that never was, with Suzanne Evans unceremoniously dumped and inelegantly reinstated as a party spokesperson for the European separatists in the space of mere hours.
The new research suggests that some of the most prominent advocates in both the 'pro' and 'anti' camps in the EU debate may be harming their own cause. Neither Europhile Tony Blair nor Eurosceptic Nigel Farage is trusted by voters when they talk about Britain's EU membership.
The 'out' campaign needs to appear positive, confident and forward-thinking if it is going to be victorious in the referendum. Unfortunately for Nigel Farage, those are no longer words with which he is associated.
Like everyone else who doesn't have a high wall to hide behind when the country's poorest eventually resort to sexually violent cannibalistic rioting, I was quite disappointed by the 2015 General Elections.
Politics, human rights, popular culture: in all these aspects of life in the UK, we seem to be at odds with our relationship with our continental friends.
These plans do nothing but illustrate the government's lack of compassion, lack of perspective and ultimately their lack of will to genuinely address the economic anxieties of the people of Britain... This is a victory only for ignorance - a victory of rhetoric over logic, of posturing over compassion. It is a victory for those who seek to demonise immigrants, who seek to pull up Britain's drawbridge and banish diversity from our society.
I agreed that having spent the previous few months spent photographing migrants in Calais I was an unlikely candidate to be asking to document the UK Independence Party and their leader Nigel Farage's 2015 election campaign, but it felt important to me to try and understand their point of view. One way or another they said yes. We all regretted it pretty quickly, but by then my limpet-like qualities had started to exert themselves; I might very well drown on the way but I was clinging on until 8 May.
