Is Direct Rule Inevitable in Northern Ireland?

Read More

By Oliver Wheeler For the first time since the creation of a devolved Northern Irish legislature in 1921, unionists have lost their majority in a snap election that took place on March 2nd. The Democratic Unionist Party, the strongest party in the Assembly since its powers were restored in 2007, now has only one more seat than its republican rival Sinn Féin, and on first preferences the parties were separated…

An International Relations account of Brexit

Read More

On the morning of June 25th, I woke up, as many of us, to the unexpected result that 51.9% of Britain had voted to leave the European Union. As a French citizen, whose father is British, mum is French and was born in Brussels (but lived in New York, Geneva and Brussels before coming to study in London – typical LSE story), I first and foremost feel strongly European. So as…

Breconomics: The Overwhelming Economic Case for Bremain

Read More

Economists never agree. That is almost a given. For virtually every issue imaginable there will be a real divide within the profession; from how high taxes should be levied to the best ways to tackle poverty; from the size of government to the economic effects of immigration. Yet it would appear that there is one issue that sees economists united. 88% of economists believe that Brexit would be likely to…

The floodgates of the Sky burst open in Cumbria

Read More

By Bobby Gard-Story. There’s only half a million of us up in the top left corner. Cumbria is the most northwesterly of English counties, second only to neighbouring Northumberland in blissful lack of population density. The people that live there, like me, appreciate space to breathe, space to walk about in, and our space is a beautiful one. But this week, it’s been getting a bit damp. 341.4mm of rain…

The Rise of China and the Downfall of the UK

Read More

by Rory Coutts ‘Golden era,’ ‘Golden Decade,’ ‘unheralded ties,’ the hyperbole surrounding Xi Jinping’s visit to the UK was emphatic. In Chinese media the focus was on the imagery and ceremony laid on for Xi, rather than the purpose of the visit itself: to funnel money into a dwindling UK, and legitimise China as a world power by giving it warm ties with a western state and bringing its currency…

Doping The Treasury With Cannabis Legislation

Read More

By Griff Ferris Earlier this week, leaked government documents indicated what many perhaps already knew and believed: that a significant amount of the population smokes cannabis, and that legalisation would not only benefit these currently ‘criminal’ users, but would also enormously benefit the government and the wider population financially. The leaked Treasury report noted widespread use of cannabis, and the potential for over a billion pounds worth of savings if…

The NHS Is A Bevan-tastic Service!

Read More

I come from a family where a trip to the doctors is the last resort; we literally only go when Google and the passage have failed to heal us and whatever it is that is ailing us shows no sign of relenting. As a result, I can count on one hand the number of trips I’ve made to my GP in the last 5 years: 4. Two of these were…
