A Country of Contrasts

Read More

By Martyn Wong. Over 155 years ago, Charles Dickens penned the famous introduction to ‘A Tale of Two Cities’: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the…

Thoughts On The London Mayoral Debate

Read More

by Frank Morley,  In an election where both candidates are neck and neck in the polls, and 44% of voters are undecided, debates like the one at LSE a few days ago are critical for both Labour’s Sadiq Khan and the Conservative’s Zac Goldsmith. But much like their figures in the polls, the debate seemed like a dead heat. This can be explained: Sadiq and Zac’s similarities are as striking…

We’ve Already Lost The War With Syria

Read More

by Perdita Blinkhorn, Following Wednesday’s  vote in the House of Commons in favour of bombing Syria, I feel lost, angry and empty. In all honesty, part of this is the burning knowledge that this military action will be carried out in my name and that of my country; but the truly devastating realisation is that there are so many people in this world today who will die as a result…

Surveillé, Sécurité, Inégalité!

Read More

By Sam Earle Writing in 1928, Andre Breton expressed a fantasy to live in a glass house, ‘where you can always see who comes to call, where everything hanging from the ceiling and on the walls stays where it is as if by magic, where I sleep nights in a glass bed, under glass sheets.’ The idea of total transparency, of a world without privacy, will horrify many. But surely…

Policy Theft: The Semantics of Politics

Read More

by Hugo Bromley, Ah, the joys of the National Living Wage. The centrepiece of the July budget, and a political masterstroke of such remarkable proportions that the quiet man really did, for the first time in his life, in the middle of the House of Commons, turn up the volume (poor old Ian Duncan Smith; he’s never going to live that one down, is he…). But listen, what is this…

The Government Should Continue With Its Plan To Cut Tax Credits

Read More

by Benjamin Thomas The issue of cuts to tax credits has dominated the discussion in recent weeks, returning political attention to the domestic sphere, kicking off constitutional debates, and taking up two straight PMQs. The opposition, and Jeremy Corbyn in particular, have framed this issue as the classically heartless Tories deliberately hurting working families. This critique revolves around the question, asked six times on the 28th of October, of whether anyone…

Only One Party Will Stand Up For the Moderate Majority

Read More

The LSESU Politics & Forum Question Time panel proved one thing: that for the moderate, progressive majority there is now only one home, the Liberal Democrats. It is now obvious there is a yawning chasm between Labour and the Conservatives. Labour, in electing Corbyn, have become one of the most left-wing versions of the Labour Party we have ever seen and is more consumed by internal debate than engaging with…
