  • The thinner blue line

    20 avril 2018, par VaneshaSingh
    The number of violent crimes recorded by police in England and Wales has risen by 14 per cent over the last year, bringing the overall figure to more than double what it was in 2013. This trend is even starker in the capital, with London seeing a 34 per cent increase in knife crime and (...)
  • Towards a kinder, gentler politics

    19 avril 2018, par Claire Sewell
    In January this year, trade unions in Scotland made a small but significant shift: ending the union movement’s opposition to electoral reform. After a long period of debate, the STUC agreed: “The burden of proof has now shifted away from those who seek change, to those who support the status (...)
  • Rogue landlords

    18 avril 2018, par Claire Sewell
    The Housing and Planning Act 2016 is undoubtedly a candidate for one of the worst pieces of legislation brought into law by any government in recent years. Most of the measures have either been dropped or quietly forgotten about. Only recently, we were rushing a bill through parliament to (...)
  • Understanding populism

    17 avril 2018, par VaneshaSingh
    Populism. As a concept, it litters thought pieces around the world. In politicians, it’s been applied to Trump, Wilders and the Five Star Movement, to name but a few. Voices from across the political spectrum find they can stretch the definition of the word to fit their slightly oversized (...)

Against this benchmark the UK’s recent economic record is truly (...)
  • Raising the Bar

    16 avril 2018, par Claire Sewell
    A new Fabian Society report published today sets out a comprehensive left-wing agenda for raising family living standards. Raising the Bar consists of nine responses to one simple question: how can we get household incomes to grow the way they used to? The contributors include Rachel Reeves MP (...)

  • Smashing the glass ceiling

    12 avril 2018, par Claire Sewell
    When Margaret Thatcher entered Downing Street in 1979, 98 of the 619 MPs in parliament had previously worked in manual jobs. In the space of three decades, the number has plummeted to just 19 – a mere 3 per cent of parliament. Ex-miners like Dennis Skinner, once two-a-penny on the Labour (...)
