British Politics

A new and dangerous kind of local politics is emerging in Britain

More direct democracy could be Europe’s only means of restoring political legitimacy

Its top-heavy structure and patchy talent mean it cannot seize a massive opportunity

David Cameron’s “A-List” has turned out to be second-rate

The Conservative Party has not fulfilled the promise of Brexit or overcome the legacy of Blair

Lewis Goodall is wrong about the “radicalisation” of the Tory right

Some stop-gap leaders of the opposition were never intended to be potential prime ministers

Some immigration advocates will never accept even the potential validity of opposing arguments

Europe’s belated rightwards drift is leaving the British behind
