To turn their electoral misfortunes around, London Tories need to declare unilateral declaration of independence from the national party in the same way that Scottish Tories have done so under Ruth Davidson. Greg Hands is the man for the job, says Peter Bingle.
Isaac Ross smells the stench of Tory decline. The Government has an apologetic posture in the communication of its policies and beliefs. It needs a fresh leader to challenge a resurgence Labour. Jacob Rees-Mogg is the man for the job.
The Supreme Court’s unanimous decision to overturn government legislation on mandatory tribunal fees represents a rare tangible victory for Britain’s workforce. But is this a fleeting breakthrough, or a concrete indication of future vindication, asks Glenn Houlihan?
Jonathan Horsman discusses the credit industry’s growing importance among Parliamentarians and sets out what the industry can expect to see on credit and debt between now and the next scheduled Queen’s Speech in 2019.
Quick to bill itself as the champion of the working class, while at the same time portraying the Conservative Party as a self-absorbed defender of the elite, disinterested in the needs of those living in poverty, the Labour Party has shown itself to be anything of the sort, says Nic Conner.
David Hardy believes Theresa May’s Florence speech represents a great Brexit betrayal, arguing that the concept of party lines is a farce. All political parties, irrespective of branding, are subservient to a Eurocentric liberal elite, he argues.

Labour’s attack on Private Finance Initiatives is absurd, given the big role the last Labour government played in extending PFIs and contracting out, and even more so given the extensive use Labour Councils rightly make of these techniques today, says John Redwood MP.
'Keep calm and carry on', an overused idiom but applicable nonetheless. Tory MPs must retain their sanity, calm down and recognise that whether they like it or not Theresa May is the best and only hope of their party winning a majority at the next general election.
Theresa May’s lumbering premiership has abandoned Conservatism replacing it instead by four main behaviours that now define her leadership: copying the opposition; procrastination; stylistic but not substantive unity; and weak, contradictory, unreliable leadership, argues Bruce Newsome.
Bruce Newsome points out the irony that the most steadfast opposition to the shortcomings of the Brexit transition deal is among Remain supporters, meanwhile Tory Brexit cheerleaders appear blindsided by its real implications.
