How Many Shades of Gray?

Photo leaked to ITV News Within two days of the publication of this article, Johnson responded to the risk it highlighted – of him being forced to resign for breaching his Ministerial Code – by rewriting the Code so that it has no teeth. There is no longer any serious penalty, even in principle, for […]

Traditional Conservatives vs Johnson’s Party

  It is obvious why those who have never seen themselves as Conservative should not support this government. This article explains why those who do see themselves as traditional Conservatives should take a stand against this government: This government shares none of the values that traditional Conservatives hold dear; Traditional conservatives prize pragmatism and competence; […]

Democracy at the Cliff Edge

Sometimes a moment can be pivotal in a way which is not obvious at the time. This article explores whether the UK is at such a critical moment now, without most of the population realising it. And it suggests what we can do about it. The challenge is that we have a government which is […]

Judging Johnson

At some point, possibly this year, the Johnson premiership will be history. Johnson says that he would like to be judged on his record. How does that record look? Johnson’s record is extremely poor in terms of measurable things like wage growth, protecting the economy, keeping the citizens of the UK safe from COVID and […]
