Queen Elizabeth doesn’t deserve this sickening Nazi smear

Queen Elizabeth doesn’t deserve this sickening Nazi smear

At 89 years of age, and after so many decades of dedicated, loyal service to our country and her people, one would think that the magnificent Queen Elizabeth II would be respected and protected by our national media. Saturday’s deeply unpleasant front page splash in The Sun newspaper accompanied by the headline, “Their Royal Heilnesses” is as tasteless as it is unfair to Britain and […]

Och aye the noo! What a Labour/ SNP coalition could mean for you

Parliament Street’s Mo Metcalf- Fisher discusses what an SNP- Labour coalition could mean for you.  If there’s one thing the polls are suggesting this election, it’s that things are mighty close.

Opinion: Is One Nation Conservatism The Key To Victory ?

Holly Whitbread discusses why she believes there should be a simplistic Conservative rebranding so the party remains loyal to traditional conservative values, appeals to all hard working British people and distances themselves from PR gimmicks.  The rhetoric of the ‘left’ centers around the idea of ‘them and us’.

Labour let young people down. We can’t go back to the way things were

Labour let young people down. We can’t go back to the way things were

Jonathan Fieldhouse argues that young people have more opportunities now, under the Conservatives, than they ever did under Labour. It’s frightening looking back over time and thinking about our once glorious high streets.  As ‘New’ Labour came to power with their army of supporters banging the drum, they forgot the rich legacy that was presented to them. They’d forgotten what […]

The Spirit of Enterprise and The Conservative Vision

The Spirit of Enterprise and The Conservative Vision

Clare Ambrosino discusses why the one hundred entrepreneurs who petitioned Ed Milliband are right to fear a Labour Government. In the run up to this most particular of elections, in the scrabble for votes, it is easy to get waylaid by the love life of the “happy warrior” or debates on kitchens. This may all be very interesting from a human point of […]
