Was isolation what made Britain great?

This week, the people of Britain will vote in a referendum which will determine Britain’s future and add a substantial number of pages to the history books of the future.

We must hold government responsible over the Panama papers

The recent leak of 11.5 million documents from Panamanian-based law firm Mossack Fonseca has sparked global outrage. And quite rightly so. 143 politicians from around the world, 12 of whom are current or former national leaders, were revealed to be evading the law and going to every length to avoid paying tax. Yet the British […]Read More

David Cameron is just a bloke going on holiday. Leave

A little over 100 days into his second term as Prime Minister, footage has emerged of David Cameron doing something that has truly shocked the nation.

Why you should vote… Conservative

As part of our ‘Why you should vote…” series for the last days of the general election campaign, Lydia explains why the Tories should attract your pen’s cross on the ballot paper. How can we doubt that there is not still a class war at hand? Unfortunately for the Tories, their age-old and still-damaging “elitist, […]Read More

David Cameron is camera shy – and students will be

The nation had barely recovered from its New Year’s Day hangover when it began. As David Cameron unveiled his party’s slick, shiny new election poster, the longest general election campaign in British history stuttered into life and the pattern for the next four months was set. Until May 7th, the front pages will run thick with cheap political […]Read More
