    On triggering article 50 the prime minister’s biggest hurdle is an expectant nation. Evidence consistently shows that people expect Brexit to deliver more trade, less migration and cessation of any financial relationship with the EU. And with reason: this is what they were promised. The prime (...)

    Despite all the problems and setbacks European integration has suffered in the past, the ‘ever closer Union’ always felt quite certain to me. However, even before British voters went to the ballot boxes in June last year, the calls for a break-up of the currency union and the re-introduction of (...)

    The Fabian Society is carrying out a research project into Labour’s discomfort in rural England and Wales. For Labour to win a majority in a general election it must make significant gains in rural and semi-rural constituencies yet it is out of touch with rural concerns. Labour’s general election (...)
  • The Great British tragedy

    24 mars 2017, par admin — Comment, Fabian Review - Featured Area, Brexit, Brussels on Brexit, Democracy, Europe, Labour
    As a social democrat it is my clear belief that creating a better world requires cooperation. Only by fighting together against the harsh consequences of raw capitalism did our ancestors manage to gain workers’ rights. And only by standing united did women suffragettes all over Europe manage to (...)

    My brother-in-law Ludwig died on Saturday 11 March, 2017. Ludwig was 62 this year, so he lived into old age for someone born with the health problems he was born with. In recent years he had severe dementia. He didn’t respond at all to anything the last few times we went to see him. He had... (...)

  • In tune with the times

    17 mars 2017, par admin — Comment, Labour, Labour leadership
    The story goes something like this: back in the 1920s, when jazz was just getting into its stride, someone asked Louis Armstrong, “What is this thing called jazz?” “If you’ve gotta ask,” the musician replied, “you’ll never know.” I relay this anecdote, not just because I love jazz, but because (...)

Yet despite a litany of Tory broken (...)
  • A unique contribution

    15 mars 2017, par admin — Comment, Cornwall, Devolution, Health, Localism
    In July 2015, Cornwall was the first rural authority to sign a devolution deal. So what has happened in the subsequent 18 months? Have our ambitions been realised?
