The Gender Pay Gap is a hazy memory, Theresa

The Gender Pay Gap is a hazy memory, Theresa

The Seventies brought us Grease, Chicago and The Equal Pay Act. Ever since then, us ladies have been bopping along to Summer Nights, All That Jazz and the sweet sound of a income that is equal to that of a male employee employed by the same company doing the same […]

The CfL Ten: Wirral West

The CfL Ten: Wirral West

One of the only low points of an altogether unforgettable 2015 election night was the defeat of Esther McVey in Wirral West. Not only did the result confound the pundits – the seat had been won by the government in every election since its creation in 1983 – the loss […]

The CfL Ten: Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland

The CfL Ten: Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland

For years pro-Brexit Conservatives were told that ‘banging on about Europe’ would render them unelectable. While that may have been true in the circles that David Cameron ran in, in many parts of the country, banging on about Europe has put the Conservatives back in play, in a way that the […]

The CfL Ten: Chipping Barnet

The CfL Ten: Chipping Barnet

Theresa Villiers has been Chipping Barnet’s MP since 2005 and represented the area previously as a London MEP from 1999. She joined the Cabinet in 2012 as Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, performing what is perhaps the most difficult job in British politics, at a difficult time for the […]

Forward Together: A manifesto for Tory paternalism

Forward Together: A manifesto for Tory paternalism

It’s become increasingly clear that libertarians are losing the battle for the heart of the Conservative Party – never more so than on the publication of ‘our’ latest election manifesto: “We must reject the ideological templates provided by the socialist left and the libertarian right and instead embrace the mainstream […]

The CfL Ten: Enfield North

The CfL Ten: Enfield North

Nick de Bois has fought every General Election in Enfield North since 2001. After losing his seat in 2015, he is aiming to return to Parliament on 8th June. Recently coming to CfL’s attention as a committed opponent of plain packaging, de Bois ticks a few other ‘ideal MP’ boxes. […]

The CfL Ten: Fermanagh and South Tyrone

The CfL Ten: Fermanagh and South Tyrone

Tom Elliott is the only non-Conservative in the CfL Ten and with good reason. After sensationally taking Fermanagh and South Tyrone back for the Union in 2015, all other unionist parties, including the Conservatives, have pulled out of the race here. Ensuring that the most westerly constituency in the United […]

Forget nationalisation; the railway needs full privatisation

Forget nationalisation; the railway needs full privatisation

It never ceases to amaze me how many people think that the railways should be nationalised. Surprisingly, for somebody who has never even worked in the transport industry, let alone the railways, Jeremy Corbyn believes that he has a wealth of knowledge and a policy that will make railways cheaper, […]

Yellow Haze: Farron and the Lib Dems miss the point on cannabis

Yellow Haze: Farron and the Lib Dems miss the point on cannabis

It’s no secret that cannabis legalisation is a policy area that I feel particularly passionate about, and one that I degenerately thrust myself behind whenever I have a chance. As such, you may be surprised that I am not over the moon at a major (ish) party in the country […]

The Labour manifesto is a ruinous blueprint for a socialist Britain

The Labour manifesto is a ruinous blueprint for a socialist Britain

The leak of the Labour manifesto is either further evidence of the leadership’s utter incompetence, or speaks volumes about the deep divisions further opening between the Far Left and the rest of the Party. If it was a strategic leak; it shows the leadership’s ineptitude as it gives the Conservative […]

Low wage tax haven? Worked for Singapore

Low wage tax haven? Worked for Singapore

You have to pity those poor Spaniards. As propitiatory sacrifices to euromoloch, their unemployment rate remains stubbornly around the 18 per cent mark a full decade after the financial crisis, and most of their young people now seem to be making lattes for Londoners. In Britain, we complain about the […]
