Why do children in Britain always bear the brunt of Tory cuts?

2 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

This is no country for babies. It’s no surprise the birthrate keeps falling when would-be parents face impossible obstacles. As in the 1930s, it happens in hard times. It’s no snowflake generation whim, but the result...

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

33 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

23 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...

The Tories are in revolt about social care – and Boris Johnson’s ‘clear plan’ won’t work

16 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

The spectacle of the Tory party in a frothing fury is a stirring sight. Cabinet members brief freely – Jacob Rees-Mogg’s head high above the parapet – while every WhatsApp groupuscule of Conservative MPs rampages agai...

Generation Covid has been hit hard. Thank goodness they’re not resentful – yet

22 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

The pandemic’s next effect might be a wave of political conflict. A rising tide of anger among young people at what they have willingly sacrificed for older people emerges in a major survey across 12 European countrie...

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...

British voters across all parties seem to be calling Johnson’s bluff on ‘levelling up’

22 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

A Tory chancellor eager for austerity will struggle to get away with echoing George Osborne’s mendacious old trope that the country has “maxed out its credit card”. Whatever the Treasury’s debts, there is no public ap...

The pandemic has opened up a deep rift within the Conservatives. It will grow

40 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

Something strange is happening within the political party famously ruthless in its pursuit of power and keeping hold of it. Its still popular prime minister, with an 80-seat majority, has only just marked his second a...

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. No esta vez. 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 £20 benefit cut won’t happen. Johnson can’t level up while levelling down

37 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

The six million poorest households in the country will lose £20 a week, it was confirmed last week. That universal credit axe is due in October, as the Treasury harvests £6bn a year from those with least. Yet in a spe...
