The day Britain will show the world it comes together united and stronger than ever before

Theresa May has finally announced a snap election on June 8. The Prime Minister could not have chosen a better timing in face of chaos at Westminster. She will show them the determination and will of the British people that we want to come out of our Brexit negotiations stronger and more prosperous.

This is also a chance for people of this country to show Nicola Sturgeon that she has no future in its politics. Her only ambition is for herself. Walking in the streets of Glascow and Edinburtg…

The Tory Turnaround

The planned rise in national insurance contributions announced by Phillip Hammond and the subsequent turnaround of policy in recent days has severely impacted government fiscal credibility. The increase in national insurance contributions would hit the self-employed with a tax increase of 1% in 2018 and 2% in 2019. The chancellor targeting the self-employed is a departure from his predecessor’s actions were in line with the conservative manifesto effectively altered the way the self-employed wer…

Trump’s accusations: How far will he go?

Trump and his administration appear to be continuously spewing their own ‘fake news’ since taking office. So much so, that it could be argued that he is completely unaware of his actions, or is using a flawed distraction tactic from his controversial policies, such as the divisive health care and immigration policies.

His latest far-fetched claim, accused his predecessor, President Obama of surveillance and wiretapping him via GCHQ, the British spy agency, a claim without any evidence. Sean S…

Scottish Independence- still on the table?

Nicola Sturgeon lost no time after the EU referendum. The day after the vote she found the outcome of Scotland leaving the EU ‘democratically unacceptable.’ She knows, of course, that the vote wasn’t on whether Scotland should remain in the European Union, but whether the United Kingdom as a whole should leave or remain. Flimsy ground; but the SNP have recourse to their manifesto of 2015, where they promised they would not allow Scotland to be taken out of the E.U. against its will.

Workers on Board

The name Mike Ashley is not exactly synonymous with good corporate governance. Not only has his company, Sports Direct, been criticised for unfair contracts – in July 2013 around 90% of employees were on zero-hours contracts – their warehouses are routinely compared to Victorian workshops and Gulags. There have been investigations by Parliament, the Guardian, the Information Commissioner and, of course, the courts. When staff are sacked with 15 minutes’ notice, and ambulance crews report employe…

Trump's ties to Russia

Russia and Trumps’ top team have again dominated the news headlines this week, but we hear precious little about the continuing conflict between Ukraine and Russia. Possibly this is because there can be little resolution until the United States resolves the current uncertainty over sanctions, but the basic facts remain. Crimea is still illegally occupied, and there is still conflict in the Donbass region.

Underlying the situation in Ukraine is a Russian resurgence after the chaotic collapse o…

Sexism outrage in the European Parliament: Have we not come far enough?

On Thursday 2nd, in regards to a debate on equal pay, Polish MEP Janusz Korwin-Mikke claimed that ‘women must earn less than men. They are weaker, they are smaller, they are less intelligent, they must earn less’, shocking members in parliament and others globally.

Of course, his statement was met with criticism from many, including Garcia Perez, (MEP from Spain) who retorted ‘I know it hurts and worries you that today women can sit in this house and represent European citizens with the same …

Blair's Back

Tony Blair returned to the spotlight last week, with a speech urging remain supporters to “rise up” and fight for a second referendum. Though Blair acknowledged that the public had indeed voted to leave, he noted they did so without knowledge of the Brexit terms.

From what we’ve heard in recent weeks, a hard Brexit seems to be the path Britain is going down, with some of the consequences of this surfacing e.g. falling value of the pound the former prime minister does make an important point. …
