Looking at the news and opinion out of London each day.


Where is the idealism of Remain?

It was all over the 1975 In campaign. This time round, it is largely absent. What does that say about the state of the European Project?

Capitalism is under attack. We must defend it before it’s too late.

The arguments need to be made again, not for the benefit of rich people but for the benefit of everyone in the UK and around the world.


Obama and Brexit. Play the ball, not the man.

Ranting and raving about his shortcomings is more likely to turn off the floating voters needed to win the referendum than otherwise.

The Left assume that people are selfish – in fact, voters sympathise with the bereaved and dislike the existence of an opportunistic tax grab.

Is the Labour Party now actively funding its own enemies?

It would be fascinating to know if other Constituency Labour Parties have been persuaded by hard core Corbynistas in their midst to part with their hard-earned and hard-raised cash reserves in order to fund events to which – crucially – Labour’s opponents on the hard Left are welcome.
