All the talk about deal, no deal and the possibility of a people’s vote has given Brexit something of an academic air. But while the popular press is happy to continue selling newspapers on the basis of these details, the reality is that Brexit, in whatever form it takes,...
There has been much discussion in recent times of the abuse that nasty people see fit to dole out to MPs online. Think of the most violent, obscene thing you would never dream of saying to anyone; it’s almost certainly already been tweeted to Diane Abbott. But foul social media...
I’m not usually one for New Years resolutions, or indeed just about anything which requires sustained perseverance and personal discipline, but this year I’m going to make an exception. I want to write more. Some, I hope, will be polished articles. The sort I read over several times before...
