    In defence of the expert amateur

    “There’s a lot to be said for the magic of self-belief. It’s a dark art, but it’s like Plato’s Cave in reverse. The absence of faith in yourself, when it’s taken away, leaves you with a lot of flickering lights and more questions than answers about what everything means and what your place is in the whole lot of it. Are you accepted by the quality of your writing or being in a profession related to your subject? How do you conjure up a confidence that has disappeared, if it’s hard to justify why it existed in the first instance?” (Read More)

    Now Is The Time To Codify A Constitution For Britain

    “Brexit’s is perhaps the most divisive issue ever to befall British politics. Everyone has their own take on the advantages, or pitfalls, of this leap into political uncertainty. It necessitates that Britain re-write its relationship with the European Union, requiring parliament to legislate on areas of policy that once came under the EU’s purview” (Read More)

    Clinton Compares Herself to Winston Churchill

    “Hillary Clinton likened herself to Winston Churchill as a “polarizing” figure in an interview with the British newspaper, the Guardian, this week. In trying to walk back her statement she said, ‘I mean, I’m not comparing myself, but I’m just saying people said that but he was right about Hitler, and a lot of people in England were wrong. And Churchill was a pain. He kept popping up all the time'” (Read More)

The Space Force: Would You Like To Know More?

In the News

“President Trump is essentially viewing space as another area for the American hegemon to exert its influence as it has done over the land, sea and air at least since World War Two. As he said himself it’s a “warfighting domain” and this has been the case for some time.” (Read More)

Votes for Life must only be the beginning

Europe

“While the passing of the Bill will likely meet the government’s pledge of legislating on the issue before the 2022 general election, it will most likely not be in place before Brexit on March 29, 2019. On the off chance there was to be another referendum on any final deal, the most populous territories of expats – 308,000 British citizens in Spain, 254,000 in Ireland and 185,000 in France – would again be denied a say on their future.” (Read More)

Passports are a hint of things to come

Europe

“Campaigns have now emerged to have the passports made in Britain. Made in Britain. The ludicrousness of that statement couldn’t be clearer. For decades, centuries even, Britain has done more to shape the modern trading world than perhaps any other country bar America. To be so parochial now, to place nationalism over practical necessity, is a cop-out.” (Read More)

Brexit makes me angry, and you should be too

Europe

“Now – this is where the slightly irked, mostly p*ssed perspective comes into play. My fiancé could have been from any one of the 27 other countries in the EU, and the situation would be the same. This doubt, this fear, is happening to hundreds of thousands of families. Those British and EU citizens who migrated exercised their democratic freedom of movement at a time when the prospect of an EU referendum, never mind Brexit, was not even a talking point.” (Read More)
