The Turbulent Issue of Wind Turbines│ Bill Grant MP

Wind turbines. One of the hottest topics in my constituency, beyond a doubt.Some people love them, and think they’ll save the planet. Some people hate them, and think they’ll destroy Scotland’s landscape.Most of us are probably open-minded – recognising the benefits of renewable energy, but not wishing to see turbines ruin the environment.There is also […]

Facebook: an internet within the internet | Jake Scott

I remember when I first started to use the internet in the very early 2000’s, it was a mess of uncoordinated websites, blogs, forums and music browsers.

Women in Politics: Why the Conservatives have it better│ Ellie King

My name is Ellie King, and I’m a Bloody Difficult Woman. I’m inspired by Margaret Thatcher and Theresa May, the two female leaders of The Conservative Party and Britain’s only two female Prime Ministers. I’m inspired by Ruth Davidson, leader of the Scottish Conservatives and responsible for the thirteen Scottish Conservative MPs that now sit […]

It’s time for a Traditionalist Conservative movement │ Robin Popley

I’ve got a confession to make – I haven’t always been a Tory.When I was a child and a young adult, my perception of a Tory was someone who had a poster of Mrs Thatcher hanging up in their bedroom and thought that the Poll Tax was the greatest government idea our nation ever had.Then, […]
