We aim to start a conversation on how Europe can engage directly with the problem of far-right extremism. It is a conversation about solutions.

The Top Ten Ukip Arguments (And Why They Are False)

Kieran Turner-Dave | Posted 25.03.2014 | UK Politics
Kieran Turner-Dave

Immigrants are not a strain on the public sector, austerity is. Moreover, if Ukip truly believe that "Britain is full", should the party be urging its members to stop procreating? Same-sex relationships would surely be far more patriotic?

First World Problems, Benifits and Free Health

Without both the benefits and the NHS we'd be living in a very frightening society, we'd have slums and diseases would spread amongst them and those unable to afford to even travel to see their nearest GP. We have it extremely good here in Britain, and sometimes you just have to ignore the politics tit for tat tactics, as that really is all that it is.

In Defence of David Cameron

James Snell | Posted 23.08.2013 | UK Politics
James Snell

David Cameron's premiership is not an unmixed success, and he needs to focus on tacking the deficit, rather than merely appearing to do so. Once he has made a concerted effort to regain control of the nation's finances, then we will be able to properly evaluate his legacy.

We'll Have A Gay Old Time

Nick Abbot

Overwhelmingly, gay marriage is a old issue, by which I mean that old people make up the vast majority of those fulminating against it. The younger the demographic, the less bothered they are. It is quite hard to see what all the fuss is about if you are in your teens or twenties.

Boston Marathon 'Right Wing' Talk Does Left, Right and Centre a Disservice

Philip White | Posted 16.06.2013 | UK Politics

Does partisanship know no bounds? Is it impossible for liberals and conservatives to see ambiguity? Can we focus on healing the wounded, instead of hurling hurtful words at ideological 'opponents'?

No Lurch To The Right, Says Cameron..

Why Ukip Will Never Be Britain's Third Party

Andrew Smith | Posted 20.02.2013 | UK Politics
Andrew Smith

There is definitely, and often justifiably, a widespread sense of anger and disillusionment with Britain's political class, and Ukip's polling is a short term symptom of that. This is backed up by research from YouGov, who found that the surge in support for Ukip coincided with George Osborne's widely derided budget.

The Right's Whitewashing Of History

Liam McLaughlin | Posted 09.11.2012 | UK Politics
Liam McLaughlin

I have noted of late the prevailing right wing view of the history of capitalism. In response to the left's general dismay at how unequal and corrupt the world is, the right crow patronisingly about how we've never had it so good.

The Great Moving Right Show

Nick Pearce | Posted 06.11.2012 | UK Politics
Nick Pearce

As Tuesday's reshuffle made clear, a new generation of right-wing conservatives is coming to the fore in British politics. This (new) New Right -exemplified by the Free Enterprise Group MPs Liz Truss, Priti Patel and Dominic Raab - differs from the Thatcherites of the 1980s in some key respects. It is mostly liberal on social issues, largely uncluttered with baggage on family and faith, and interested in policy issues that concern modern parents, like childcare.

Workers and Shirkers

According to Cameron the Tories back those workers while Labour are busy backing the shirkers. If that's really true then based on definitions and the PM's logic, Milliband is backing the Conservative Party and Cameron is far more Red than Ed for supporting the labourers. These are the people running the country remember?

Is the future of our flag in jeopardy? Has our flag become a logo that flogs cheap apparel during times of nationalism decided by marketing teams? If Scotland gain independence do we need to change the flag?

What Would British Fascism Look Like?

Were a far-Right government ever to win power in Britain - and never get too complacent, for a Searchlight poll last February found a staggeringly high number of voters who said they would be prepared to vote for party of the far-Right if it renounced violence - what might it do in its first year of power?

Left vs Right: Can We All Play Nicely Now?

According to the Brock University academics, conservative politics serves as a kind of 'gateway' into prejudice against others and basically those with low childhood intelligence were susceptible (read: doomed) to grow-up as racist, God-fearing homophobes.

Left & Right: Wrong on Riots

Jonty Langley | Posted 15.10.2011 | UK Politics
Jonty Langley

In a lot of riots, I usually have sympathy with the rioters. I understand how this can be irritating, but, if the cause is just, the targets legitimate and the violence aimed at inanimate objects rather than people, while I may not do it myself, I can see where the anarchists/ environmentalists/ students/ ethnic underclass are coming from.

Both the Left and Right see the London Riots as the Flashing Illumination of a Dark Malaise

Jamie Bartlett | Posted 10.10.2011 | UK Politics

Violence is the purest way to split the left and the right. It sidesteps the cloudy, dreary political waffle and cuts directly to the chase: what causes people to do bad things.
