Labour’s lies have let down Young People

Two things were crystal clear from June’s General Election result in the United Kingdom; Labour did not win the Election hence they have not formed Her Majesty’s Government and secondly Jeremy Corbyn did manage to stir up a significant amount of support within the Youth or millennial demographic.

The Pillars of Scottish Nationalism have crumbled

The SNP’s remarkable electoral ascent over the past decade has been driven by an ever increasing sense of political momentum.

A #moggmentum Manifesto

Enthusiasm for Brexit among politicians in Westminster is a bit “low-energy” at the moment. Theresa May is soldiering on after a very underwhelming general election performance that saw her reduced to leading a minority government supported by the DUP.

Did the earth move for you?

It certainly did for me! I ask that question, as never before has such seismic change occurred in British politics. The tectonic plates of unrest started to move about 18 months ago with the lead up to and the eventual vote on the EU Referendum. It was not this momentous …
