    Current British politics mirrors the mantra of its history: glorify the good, bury the bad

    Is it possible that fewer people would hurl racial and Islamophobic slurs at Pakistanis and their communities if they knew that the British Raj was responsible for encouraging Pakistani migration to Britain in the mid twentieth century? I think so. The act of brushing such periods of history under the carpet, means that bigotry is fed by ignorance, which then allows for obliviousness and inaccuracies to find their ways into history books.

    Skyrim: The best game of the last two generations?

    In this article, the author discusses his love of Skyrim, the fifth game in the long-running Elder Scroll series. With it approaching its seventh rerelease since 2011 and after a two and half year hiatus, now seemed the perfect time for another visit. (Read More)

    Does Remembrance Day remind us of Britain’s future?

    As we commemorate those who gave their lives during the two World Wars perhaps we could reflect on what we have done with our freedom and how we have honoured those who paid the ultimate price.

    With Brexit, I think there are real opportunities to be had in terms of reflecting, re-assessing and redefining our vision of Great Britain.C (Read More)

    How could an independent Scotland join the European Union?

    Another question to address is whether Scotland would have to adopt the euro as its currency. Tobias Lock and Kirsty Hughes, writing for European Futures suggest that Scotland ‘would probably have to commit to eventual euro membership, but would not meet the criteria yet.’ They also submit that an independent Scotland would ‘be able to postpone this [adoption of the euro] (probably indefinitely).’ (Read More)

Confessions of a Shy Tory

Politics & Society

“I can assure you it takes more than money as well. You need to deeply change a culture and foster an atmosphere of individual responsibility and initiative in people. The only party that seems to mention responsibility is the Conservatives now, who have the word 11 times in their 2017 manifesto compared with 7 for Labour. A very crude measure, but like I say, much of this is just general feeling from the different parties.” (Read More)

Hugh Andrew | The joy of democracy

Politics & Society

“All the endless consultation about what the people want has neither settled anything nor tracked any clear path. Indeed, the government has largely halted in the last few years in the ceaseless build up or wind down from one vote to the next.

North Korea: A genuine threat or grand strategy hindrance?

Tensions between the US and North Korea have reached new heights in the last few months, with the war of words between both nations ramping up and becoming increasingly hostile, but what does this conflict ultimately boil down to?
