23 ビュー0 コメント

A long, low groan echoes around the NHS. Not again, お願いします? The new health secretary, サジド・ジャビド, pledges far-reaching reforms and the most comprehensive review since the 1980s. Too many new health secretaries start ...

The Conservative conference shows a party in denial while all around is crisis

20 ビュー0 コメント

The Tory party conference seems to be floating along in a sea of delusion. Outside their cocooned security zone, in the real world of petrol shortages and soaring energy prices, a cost of living crisis is “flashing re...

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

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...

Labour should be approaching its party conference with hope, not despair

34 ビュー0 コメント

Ahead of the Labour party conference this weekend, many are hoping for a magic leader’s speech to turn the tide overnight. Orthodoxy decrees that a midterm opposition should be polling far ahead, not in Labour’s curre...

We’ve had a reshuffle, but no change of direction for this hapless government

43 ビュー0 コメント

Will this reshuffle make a scrap of difference? Of course not. The most damaged of the prime minister’s dented shields of inadequates are out, to be replaced mainly with other willing obedients. This noisy grinding of...

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

48 ビュー0 コメント

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

26 ビュー0 コメント

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

17 ビュー0 コメント

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...

アフガニスタン後, Britain can no longer pretend to punch above its weight

28 ビュー0 コメント

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

20 ビュー0 コメント

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

18 ビュー0 コメント

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’

27 ビュー0 コメント

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

45 ビュー0 コメント
