This had never struck me before, but consider the following: Bob Kerslake, a former head of the civil service, said the root of this frustration was the failure of UK politicians to decide on a plan to leave the EU. ?What is making it extremely difficult for civil servants is the paralysis of politicians. They […]A

Thought this important, an editorial from the business section of the Observer at the weekend which notes that Philip Hammond despite a commitment to ‘end austerity’ last year did not make any efforts to unfreeze benefits. This despite significant tax receipts and low payments on government debt. But even that commitment – unfulfilled as it […]A

Okay, how to define a government that didn’t realise a third vote on the same proposition was very possibly not going to be permitted under the rules of the parliament it is, at least nominally, answerable to? A ‘constitutional crisis’ in the UK? That’s what their own solicitor general says of this turn. But surely […]A

Feeling a bit deflated after the weekend festivities? Want to feel worse? How about this excoriating analysis of how Brexit will likely play out across the next decade or so, not least this: What about Global Britain? Most trade agreements involve tariff reduction, so being in the CU largely limits the scope for Mr. Fox […]A

Gewerkschaftler suggested this recently: I suggest this blog should have a regular (weekly) slot where people can post happenings at the personal or political level that gives them hope that we?re perhaps not going to hell in a handbasket as quickly as we thought. Or as the phlegmatic Germans put it ?hope dies last?. Any […]A

Interesting to see some further fraying at the edges of the Tory party. How about this – soft Brexit proponent Nick Boles has seen attempts by his local Conservative association to deselect him and has now resigned from said association while keeping the Tory whip. What’s most interesting is how the membership is pushing for […]A

Does the person writing the following actually understand politics or ideology? Consider the question in the first sentence… Starting with his glib promise, in December 2017, not to abandon Northern nationalist (abandon to what – a free health service and a ?9bn subsidy?), Leo Varadkar has infected ehe body politic with a green fever as […]A

Jason O’Toole has an intriguing piece on the Bloody Sunday prosecutions here in the Mirror. And again, the point is made, ‘why did it take 47 years to get to this point?’.A
