Our name and identity is being given away to the very country whose primary foreign policy objective is our eradication.” (Read More)

Sexism in Parliament: Could more be done to change the culture?

New Writers

“The centenary of the Representation of the People Act provides an important moment to reflect on the position of women in politics.

NHS70: The Way We Talk About The Health Service Needs To Change

UK Politics

“Whilst it has undoubtedly been the case for several years the NHS appears to be something of a sacred cow within the realm of British political discourse.

Now Is The Time To Codify A Constitution For Britain

Brexit
