Why Parliament should vote on the final Brexit deal│ Jack Adler

I supported Brexit, but the government is wrong in preventing Parliament from voting on the final deal.Despite the failure of Theresa May to secure a majority in this year’s general election, it is increasingly clear that a Conservative government is the only way to secure a Brexit that works for the whole of the United […]

What’s the USE? │ Jake Scott

Martin Schulz recently tweeted his intention to create a federal constitution that would bind the (once) sovereign nations of the European Union into a United States of Europe (USE) by 2025. This should alarm every one of us, Brexiteer or Remainer; socialist, conservative or liberal. But why?I want a new constitutional treaty to establish the […]

Conservatives must embrace the challenge of the new media│ Conrad Lewandowski

After the shock result of the 1992 general election, where the Conservatives did far better than expected, The Sun declared on its front page that it was their support “wot won it”. Yet despite the Conservatives having the backing of most of the press, it was Labour that did far better than expected in June’s […]

Coming Home: Why Conservatism Appeals to Young People│ Jake Scott

I would like to make a brief apology in advance to those reading this article, as it will be somewhat different in tone to previous articles I have written. I enjoy a good polemic from time to time, for it is easier to tear down someone else than it is to build your own theory […]

One nation conservatism is a way of seeing the world│ Alastair Stewart

One day, after many years of advocating his legacy, I woke up to find Benjamin Disraeli’s face all over the TV. Had the prophet returned?

Appeasement Over Ideology, Growth Over Savings, A Change in Direction: Hammond’s second budget │ Luke Caldecott

Cast your mind back to Philip Hammond’s first budget back in March; opinion polls strongly in his favour, however with only a wafer-thin majority and no manifesto to back up the new party leadership, he remained constrained by prior commitments from the deceased Cameron-Osborne regime. Back then, no individual in the United Kingdom could’ve possibly […]

Has May got a one-nation Brexit policy?│ Alastair Stewart

When Theresa May assumed office, she used her first speech to define herself as a “one-nation” Tory. The evidence suggests otherwise. Highlights of May’s Premiership to date include being forced by the Supreme Court to face parliamentary scrutiny, failing to win an outright mandate from the British public and not producing any semblance of a […]

Stop Squawking about Peter Hitchens; you’ve proven him right│ James McQuillan

It is truly incredible to see journalists from Huffington Post, among others, completely lose their minds over Peter Hitchens’ blog. Opinions are abound and articles which completely miss the point are just, infecting social media. It begs the honest question: Do you actually read his posts? Or just freak out over the title?And no, you […]

Smooth Welfare Reform: Tackling Issues with Universal Credit Together│ Stephen Kerr MP

It seems to be the case that our welfare system has strayed away from its sole purpose, which is, and must always remain, ensuring the welfare of its recipients.  This statement is as obvious as they come, but its meaning may be distorted if one fails to define welfare.  Welfare, we should all agree, can […]
