If there is any reason at all to put an immediate halt to Brexit, it is President Trump's first week in office, culminating in Prime Minister Theresa May's desperate visit to be the first leader to swear fealty - and then her inexcusable refusal to condemn the so-called Muslim Ban.
As the Leicester Comedy Festival starts up again, there are more 'political' acts on the card than ever before. Yet the problem here is finding someth...
When I held up a sign behind Nigel Farage on Wednesday it, to my shock, went viral. Less shocking was the torrent of abuse and hate that followed online. Quite a few, more understandably, asked me what Nigel Farage had done to deserve having a crudely, off the cuff note held up behind his head. For those people, here's a handy list of just five fibs Nigel Farage told that day and over the past decade.
This is the speech I gave at the Stop Trump rally in Manchester on Friday, January 20th, 2017, joining with local activists and people around the world standing up for women's rights, diversity and peace...
I'll be marching on Saturday because the first rule of making a change is to do something about it. I'll be marching to encourage all the people who have looked at the world lately and thought: "Someone should really do something about this" - to believe that on Saturday that person can be them.
France's far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen was spotted last week at Trump Tower, in New York. Whether she was there to meet with President-elect Trump or not, which she and Trump's team declined to say, it is important to understand the danger she and her party represent in Europe.
Way back when in 2012, before Brexit, before Trump, and before Honey G, a politics conference in Westminster Hall hosted 800 young, plucky eyed, enthu...
Like many brands, most successful political narratives are the ones that are memorable - distinctive, tangible and succinct. Positivity is an optional extra. So is truth as of late. Here we look at the top 10 attempts to establish political brands in Britain in the 21st century. Share your own favourite with a quick poll at the end.
Boris Johnson won't last another six months as Foreign Secretary. There will be too many conflicts between himself and Theresa May and something will have to give. Mrs May isn't going anywhere, so it'll be Boris. Where he'll go though is anyone's guess...
Nigel Farage represents all that is indecent in our politics and society, while Brendan Cox represents all that is decent. Sadly, as 2016 draws to a close it is Farage's Britain more than Brendan Cox's that find ourselves living in.
Above all, however, 2016 will be remembered as the year when Democracy, in contemporary parlance, 'got its strop on'. As the great Roman warrior-philosopher Maximus Decimus Meridius might have said, "What we vote in 2016, echoes in eternity." Fingers crossed.
Nuttall's Ukip offers voters something that Corbyn's Labour does not: a patriotic party focused on reducing immigration and fanning the flames of an English identity. Labour either needs to co-opt some of those messages, or roundly defeat them. Mocking or dismissing Nuttall will only lead to electoral success for Ukip, most likely at the expense of Labour.
There is no more symbolic an image of 2016 than the picture of Donald Trump and a gloating Farage standing in front of Trump's gold-plated doors, like a grotesque modern-day version of Churchill, Truman and Stalin at Potsdam.
Where do the double standards stop? It's not okay for our children to lie, it's not okay for the pillars of industry to make things up, but it's absolutely fine for the new Leader of the Free World?
Those inside the Conservative party, and others screaming from the side-lines, need to wise up on how people like Donald Trump do business. He is a classic bully, and if the recent election isn't a good indicator of that then there is no hope that we will ever be able to deal with his underhand tactics.
Most of all, we must realize the future does not necessarily belong to the right. But increased popular engagement - not just sharing Facebook posts - is needed: this is an age of political realignment, and one must stand up and be counted.
