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.

He Who Dares To Build, Wins (Speech)│ Angus Gillan

Over the course of Conservative Party Conference 2017, housing was a major discussion: from Theresa May’s final speech to The Tax Payers Alliance discussing intergenerational unfairness, the topic of housing could not be escaped.I was struck by the great ideas proposed by MPs such as George Freeman and Richard Graham, which went into great detail […]

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, […]
