One Year On: A Trump Presidency (Part Three)│ Sarah Stook

As a populist with some isolationist and protectionist streaks, Trump has an interesting view on a number of issues, which is why he managed to win the nomination, and ultimately, the Presidency. In regards to immigration, Trump went further than any of his rivals in his rhetoric, his strong views speaking to the (mainly) white […]

One Year On: A Trump Presidency (Part One) | Sarah Stook

One year ago today, everything seemed to be in place for a Clinton Presidency. Some polls showed an above 90% chance and all media seemed to be readying themselves for the first female President.

Inspiring a Generation: The Best Female Role Models | Sarah Stook

In the age of feminism, we women have plenty of role models to choose from. For many, Beyoncé’s strong feminist character, no-nonsense attitude and open sexuality make her a great role model.

Opinion: Don’t Blame the World, Hillary- Blame Yourself | Sarah Stook

From The One Show (God that was a painful thing to watch) to Andrew Marr, Hillary Clinton has been doing the rounds to promote her new election/post-election memoir, What Happened.

Birth Control: A Question of Religion and Morality | Sarah Stook

In a recent policy update, it has been announced that Donald Trump plans to roll birth control being covered by health insurance, something mandated by his pet hate, Obamacare. Predictably, there has been a somewhat polarising reaction to this news- some (mainly on the left) believe that it is a healthcare right as much as […]

The Cleverlys, Patels and Badenochs- A True Conservative Future│ Sarah Stook

Ever since the disastrous (at least for the Tories) 2017 GE, many have been looking at the future of the leadership. We don’t know how long Theresa May will last- whether it’ll be sixth months or a proper five year term, but she will not exactly be a Robert Mugabe. She will one day step […]
