The Bastardization of Traditional Progressive and Conservative Parties
December 25, 2019

The drift of traditional conservative parties to the far right and neo-fascism and the insistence by traditional social democratic and working-class parties to adopt pro-business and anti-labor positions is why large blocs of voters feel abandoned.

September 16, 2019

In all the hullabaloo of Brexit and its associated parliamentary infighting, little noticed has been how Dominic Cummings and Boris Johnson are attempting to change the very nature of the UK political landscape.

One of the Greatest Tory Prime Ministers That Never Was
December 16, 2016

Political history is littered with towering figures who never quite made it to the very top of politics. In Britain there are giants of past political eras who make the politicians of 2016 look like pygmies. On the Labour side one need only think of the likes of Denis Healey, Barbara Castle and their SDP renegades Roy Jenkins and Shirley Williams. For the Tories Michael Heseltine ranks high. So too, does Ken Clarke, who is the subject of this article and has just released his memoirs 'Kind of Blue.'…

From Iraq to The Brexit Referendum: Tony Blair’s Toxic Legacy. Yes, He Should Stand Trial for War Crimes
June 29, 2016

Anthony Charles Lynton Blair currently back in Britain, cast a dark shadow over those campaigning to stay in the European Union in the 23rd June referendum. Inflicting himself on the Britain Stronger in Europe group, he spoke at every opportunity – reminding even the most passionate Europhile of the last time he assured: “I know I’m right” – Iraq…

S0 His Haughtiness Tony Blair has finally apologized for the 2003 disaster of the US-UK invasion of Iraq. Sort of. The media around the world went to town with the story before the interview given to Fareed Zakaria was even […]
