Whatever happened to Social Democracy in the UK?
I'm trying to observe a vow of silence about The Opposition Leader Who Shall Not Be Named (from now on referred to as TOLWSNBN) , as quite frankly I'm bored of talking and writing about him. Today tho, I wonder if Labour have completely given up on Social D...

Should it be so difficult to leave the EU?
Someone said to me the other day that an institution so hard to leave
as the EU was wrong. I wasn’t so sure, as I thought of several associations
that are hard to leave – i.e. hard to leave or not take part in without
significant downsides. Trade bodies bei...

Imagine there's no countries - how do we get there from here?
There's been some astonishingly good analysis on the Brexit decision in the last couple of days, here are some of my reflections. I'm struck by the fact, as the IFS outlines, that the government wants to take a lot of time, effort and money to shoot ourselv...

My Britain is the Britain of Pied Beauty. Give me my country back.
Gerard Manley Hopkins wrote my favourite poem, Pied Beauty. "GLORY be to God for dappled things—   For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow;     For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim; Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches’ wings;   Landscap...

Why I'm voting Remain
I'm voting Remain in the EU referendum and here's why 1. I want the ability to live and work abroad for myself and my family. Selfish, maybe. But I also think the flipside of that is others should be free to do similar, unless they are criminals. 2. Brexit ...

Micropayments, micropayments - wherefore art thou , micropayments?
I'm intrigued recently by this piece by the founder of Politico   - Jim VandeHei It's sensible in that it predicts the death of clickbait (praise be!) and the rise of more interesting, well researched paid for content. But, what interests and worries me in ...

Corbyn's not for turning, neither are the Hard Brexiteers
People like consistency. I think this helps explains Corbynmania amongst his supporters in the Labour party, and also to an extent Brexit. I think that because Corbyn refuses to compromise, he engenders support amongst people who dislike compromise. This co...

Post-fact politics and the end of stability
I haven't written a blog post since the referendum because, to be quite honest, I've not really known what to say. It feels like the end of an epoch, but how can I say that, have never seen the end of an epoch before. Globalisation and Its Discontents was a...

Clothes maketh the woman?
I was struck today but the reporting on a focus group in Nuneaton -  with a fair amount reflecting people's views of Jeremy Corbyn and most interestingly, their view of his clothes. It seems the voters of Nuneaton are underwhelmed by Mr Corbyn, and also fee...
