Anti-Semitism: The Last Taboo? | Sarah Stook

‘It’s such a shame that the History teachers in our school never taught us this but they are the first to start brainwashing us and our children into thinking the bad guy was Hitler. What have the Jews done good in this world?’ Five years ago, Nasreen ‘Naz’ Khan posted this on a FB page. […]

Boris Johnson and Conservative Populism│ Oliver Dunn

“You need a populist, to beat a populist,” was the argument made by an anonymous Cabinet Minister in favour of Boris Johnson leading a populist Conservative party into the next general election. But is this really the direction the Conservative party should be taking? According to James Forsyth of The Spectator some Tory donors think […]

Compassionate Conservatism and Corbynism│ Fred Kearey

Behind the exterior of Corbynism is an idea that can prey on those that feel powerless. As a party, we must take on the concerns of the JAM’s – the Just About Managing’s – and do this fast. Stridently stake out our claim that our Conservatism is something that will appeal to them; this means […]

The Conservatives Need to Adapt to Win the Next Election │ Holly Wright

Conservatism is threatened by the menace of socialism. The popular support behind Momentum and Corbyn’s version of the Labour Party should deeply worry us. Lord Heseltine warned: ‘2 per cent of the older part of the electorate die every year – they are 70 per cent Conservative’. With the youth vote dominated by Labour, the […]

Many of us have doubtless heard the satire doing the rounds recently; that Corbyn’s Labour Party is suffering from the delusion in thinking it won the General Election in June, that it views itself as a “government in waiting”, and that Corbyn has a mandate from the people to pursue the promises and policies laid […]

May ’til Christmas?│Sebastian Cousins

Grassroots anger is growing. Demands for Christmas to be an exodus and genesis increase in volume. The end of May is nearing. To be honest, that was a tad melodramatic. And, though almost everyone on the political spectrum wants her to go for various reasons,  May is not going to jump, nor does the party’s […]

The left must break out its safe space | Robbie Travers

Is it not interesting that often those who purport to be the most fervent critics of prejudice on UK university campuses today seem to wish to avoid directly confronting prejudiced views? One would think that an anti-racist wouldn’t need a safe space from racism. Anti-racists, by their titular expertise, are surely experts in tackling supposedly […]

Britain’s New Anti-Semitism | Alexander Masir

Coming to Britain and encountering anti-Semitism has been one of the most surprising experiences in my life. I originate from a Hungarian town that has seen its two synagogues deconsecrated, their congregation forced into a ghetto or deported, with only 70 of them to return. There, when we spoke of the West, we thought of […]
