Corbyn In Brighton: This Is A Seismic Shift In Two

Corbyn In Brighton: This Is A Seismic Shift In Two Ways

Let's be under no illusion about the significance of what we have just seen: a Labour Party leader calling, at the party's annual conference, for the nationalisation of public utilities - not to cries of derision or the dropping of jaws, but to a standing ovation inside the hall and positive responses beyond.

GE2017: Lessons On

GE2017: Lessons On Leadership

As the dust begins to settle on the political earthquake that was GE2017 - whilst simultaneously, the ground begins to rumble for what could be GE2017 #2 - there are so many fascinating conclusions to reflect on. From the re-energised youth vote, to the hugely important changes in Scottish seats - and that's before we even get to what it means for Brexit - the lessons will take long to digest and understand.

The Disaster Of Trump On Paris - And What It Means For

The Disaster Of Trump On Paris - And What It Means For GE2017

If you do, go out next week and vote, not for the status quo, not for a hard Brexit, and not for a group of politicians who refuse to criticize the act of global vandalism we just seen across the pond.

After Manchester Attack It Is Right To Pause, But Then To Carry On - And Figure Out Why This Keeps Happening

Right now is the time for one other, overarching question. This question is entirely non-partisan: it's a question not just for this prime minister, but for all the previous prime ministers who have had to respond to such atrocious acts of terrors, and all of the prime ministers to come who, sadly, will no doubt have to respond to events like this in the future: we have to ask in a way we have never asked before - why does this keep happening?

A Progressive Alliance Is A Once-In-A-Lifetime Chance That Must Be

A Progressive Alliance Is A Once-In-A-Lifetime Chance That Must Be Taken

With appetite for this election seemingly so low, and with the outcome already near certain, the first thing we must do is view the present situation as an opportunity to renew the business of politics in the UK. GE2017 should be seen as nothing short of a once-in-a-generation opportunity to break out of the Labour-Tory duopoly that the nation has clearly outgrown.

Johnson, Fox, May: The Brexit

Johnson, Fox, May: The Brexit Bullies

Whether we are left, or right, or centre, those of us interested in a peaceful future for ourselves, our families, and yes, even those we disagree with, should start to stand up against this kind of politics, before it is too late.
