Why Post-Referendum We Need Centrist Politics

Rebecca Hills | Posted 18.07.2016 | UK Politics

The future of the UK outside of the EU is uncertain but if we let those with radical and divisive views take control of our country rather than moving back towards the path of centrism, the future is likely to be a far less inclusive and united place.

Katie Hopkins: Head Recruiter for ISIS

Hopkins recently tweeted that all of us who welcomed refugees were responsible for the recent atrocity in Brussels. There is no irony attached to her rhetoric, just contrived opinion to cash in on clickbait. But ultimately at what price?

The Rise of the Anti-Free Speech Right

When descriptive terms become derogatory, debate becomes impossible, and for as long this strand of the Right demonises opinions with which they do not agree rather than actively and intelligently engaging with them, it will prevent debate and it will stamp out free speech.

The Dover Protests Only Scrape the Surface of the Lack of Empathy Towards Refugees

Refugees are and should be welcome in the UK and other EU countries. They deserve better than this frankly appalling treatment. They're not trying to 'scrounge' from us. They're not just a 'bunch of migrants', like David Cameron said last week. They're people. It's time that they're given the help that they so desperately need.

I Dumped My Boyfriend Because of His Political Views

Two weeks before Christmas, I left my French boyfriend of ten months. We hadn't argued, there wasn't anyone else, things were good... Little did I know, my then-boyfriend had given Le Front National his vote. I had no idea he was this way politically inclined, and 24 hours later, we were done.

The Oregon Standoff: When We Mistake Terrorism for Protest

Many have focused on how inaction of authorities in Oregon highlights racial biases and double standards in police use of force and counter-terrorism in the United States. But one of the most dangerous outcomes of inaction against violence is the legitimacy we implicitly lend it. Let's not mistake terrorism for protest.

Conservatives Must Hold Their Heads High in the Face of the 'New, Kinder Politics'

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.

The Calais Crisis Will Only be Resolved With Compassion and Pragmatism

Perhaps if we remembered that in this bleak world of ours Britain shines like a beacon of freedom, tolerance and compassion then we can be proud of ourselves, proud to help others and proud to push the international community to do its best. If we can rally round a positive patriotism about the place we're lucky enough to call home then we can drown-out the anti-British naysayers as well as helping those who sincerely need our help.

Left or Right? The Curious Case of the SNP

Alan Grant | Posted 09.08.2016 | UK Politics
Alan Grant

The Scottish National Party is a genuinely unique animal in our modern politics. It has grown from being the butt of many a political joke to become the dominant force in the Scottish Parliament in just a few election cycles. It now occupies a large swathe of the green benches in a Parliament that its members and politicians would rather not have any part of and their forward momentum, depending on how the next Holyrood elections go, shows no sign of ending.

The Right-Wing Victory - Can We Really Complain?

The election results at the start of the month came as quite a shock. With a Labour-SNP coalition taking the lead at the polls, a Tory majority seemed highly unlikely. However, winning just over 50% of the 650 seats, the Conservative party shamed the pollsters' predictions.

Is Lovely Bubbly "Champagne Socialism" What People Actually Want?

The success of unregulated capitalism isn't because it's the better system, but because capitalists continue to win the propaganda war.

Is There Any Room for the Right in Student Politics?

The anti-establishment nature of the student movement has also been a permanent, seemingly uncompromising fixture. Some of the major issues facing students too - rising rents and the day-to-day costs of living for example - could arguably be fixed by implementing a series of interventionist policies than by relying on the free market.

Nigel Farage has made it plain that even if the UK suffers a drop in GDP; because we limit immigration then it is worth it. Farage wants us out of the European Union and wants to stop the UK spending money on overseas aid.

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

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?
