Politics or Popularity? What Did We Vote For?

It’s hard to ignore the media circus around this year’s election, and I say this year because they seem to be an annual thing now. Focus has been locked on the two main party leaders Jeremy Corbyn and Boris Johnson with little else other than Brexit discussions piercing through the fog of this popularity contest. […]Read More

Some Men Just Want to Watch the World Burn: What’s

Today may well go down in history as the day that the final nail went into our planet’s already rotting coffin. A shock result  has returned the right wing Liberal-National Coalition to government in Australia. This is terrible news for everyone, everywhere.

Thousands were left bewildered at Labour’s catastrophic defeat. Labour’s hopes were increasingly raised throughout the campaign, only to be shattered on the night. A blanket […]Read More

The most exciting thing about this general election is that the two-party system has essentially been made redundant. This has inevitably given rise to many minority parties who would usually find themselves on the very fringes of the British political system. The Green Party are arguably the most radical of these minority parties: their pledges […]Read More
