El laborismo debería acercarse a la conferencia de su partido con esperanza, no desesperación

21 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

Antes de la conferencia del Partido Laborista este fin de semana, muchos esperan que el discurso de un líder mágico cambie el rumbo de la noche a la mañana. La ortodoxia decreta que una oposición de mitad de período debería estar votando con mucha anticipación, no en la corriente laborista ....

Tuvimos una reorganización, pero ningún cambio de rumbo para este desventurado gobierno

28 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

¿Esta reorganización hará una pequeña diferencia?? Por supuesto no. Los más dañados de los escudos abollados de los inadecuados del primer ministro están fuera, ser reemplazado principalmente por otros obedientes dispuestos. Este ruidoso rechinar de ....

If Johnson is serious about ‘levelling up’, he needs to look at what Labour got right

21 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

No one knows what “levelling up” is, but now Boris Johnson wants 10 more years to do it. A white paper on the grand strategy is promised but, in the meantime, take a good look at this week’s report from Onward – a cen...

Boris Johnson’s care victory shows he can get away with sham policies – for now

19 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

He does it again, he pulls it off. The figure David Cameron once called the “greased piglet” has slipped from the grasp of his angry party and the Tory press, all incensed by this new levy. Boris Johnson trounced them...

After Afghanistan, Britain can no longer pretend to punch above its weight

20 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

After humiliation, here ends hubris and surely the “global Britain” delusion. No more fatuous boasting, no more “world-beating” and “world-leading”, but time for an honest audit of who we are, what we can do, and what...

End-of-life care should not simply be about prolonging a painful death

19 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

Of all life’s seven ages, which do people value most? Surely no one puts their final few months at the top, when all that’s left is the hope of avoiding departure through a torture chamber. Yet the UK spends most on t...

The Taliban’s victory in Afghanistan has laid bare the magnitude of western hubris

17 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

Here ends the west’s grotesque delusion that it could use its military might to turn Afghanistan into a stable democracy, a shining path of moderate Islam. In the shadow of New York’s burning twin towers, I was one sw...

Saved by the bell, Boris Johnson’s government flip-flops off for the summer

40 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

On the last day of term in parliament, there’s a bad tradition of governments sneaking out a host of unwelcome reports and decisions they hope to hide amid the great Westminster summer escape. Not this time. En lugar de, ...

Boris Johnson’s ‘freedom day’ isolation tells us the virus is everywhere

29 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

How was “freedom day” for you? On the stroke of midnight a photogenic few leapt on to the dancefloor and raved into the small hours; but the NHS, social care, escuelas, supermarkets, hauliers, hospitality and transport...

The European ruling on headscarves opens the way to rank discrimination

34 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

It’s a puzzle that so many religious people identify themselves by what they wear. Among Christians I find it macabre that they choose to wear, in gold around their neck, an instrument of one of the cruellest tortures...

The NHS bill is political dynamite – and a gift to Labour

31 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

It’s no surprise that the new health secretary has balked at a gigantic new reorganisation bill before he had even got his feet under the NHS operating table. Five million people waiting for treatment, a workforce cri...

Priti Patel rattles the handcuffs – but the Tories have lost control of law and order

35 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

Justice is grinding to a halt. The handcuff-rattling home secretary, Priti Patel, likes announcing draconian new sentences – but without adequate police, prisons and, sobre todo, law courts to hear cases, her bombast i...

The pension triple-lock is an insult to the UK’s young people

27 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

Here’s a tale of two generations, the pensioners and young workers. As the pandemic furlough winds down this week, one generation is destined for a mighty windfall from the government while the other gets nothing. El...

As we lose respect for our politicians, democracy itself is taking a hit

37 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

A senior politician plunges Icarus-like out of the sky – a reminder that few careers carry such high risk. Why would anyone do it? On the first rung of that political ladder, Labour candidate Kim Leadbeater faces the ...

Cinco años después, finalmente sabemos lo que significa Brexit: un trato peor para todos

38 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

Hace cinco años hoy, en las primeras horas, Gran Bretaña descubrió lo que había hecho y lo que le habían hecho los mentirosos., charlatanes y pícaros que vendieron mal el Brexit como "recuperar el control". La herida está tan fresca como e ....

There are solutions to the housing crisis, but none of them are Tory

46 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

Enjoy the schadenfreude as angry Tories lacerate their party for losing the Chesham and Amersham byelection. The defeated candidate, Peter Fleet, bitterly lashes out at “the appalling state of our local roads” – thoug...
