Restoring Hope

Having spent the weekend surveying social media and observing my mates’ reaction to the George Floyd protests, I felt this overwhelming urge to do the same, and post a tribute of some sort.

The Cricketing Playboy turned Prime Minister

With COVID-19 still running rife and the Labour Party announcing that Sir Keir Starmer is their new leader, the topic of Imran Khan seems like a peculiar one to blog about.

Lockdown life and exploring liberalism

Twitter would have you think that lockdown life consists of grabbing a shotgun and the last tin of baked beans. However, if I’m honest, I can’t really complain.

Johnson Government must address the homeless crisis

Homelessness is a Public Health crisis that must be treated like one, says Edward Jeffery.

Boris Johnson is a Liberal Opportunist

Ted Jeffery argues Boris will always have a liberal-Tory ideology just like his political idol, Sir Winston Churchill – another progressive Tory of his time.
