The new Cabinet: A statement of intent?

Driving from Bushmills to Belfast yesterday afternoon, I listened to Theresa May’s first speech as Prime Minister with Neil Wilson.

George Osborne must resign now

Since the referendum David Cameron has acted with great dignity and statesmanship; the same cannot be said of the Chancellor.

Political engagement must continue
post-referendum

The EU referendum campaign was an interesting time in our recent political history. It split the two major parties as well as conjuring up some interesting political bedfellows. And it also got a lot of people engaged in politics who normally couldn’t give a damn. Many people in Northern parts […]
