“Theresa May’s up next, check she knows what day it is…”

 

  • Drugs policy

    Choosing to highlight a political point-scoring joke rather than engage with the controversial issues under discussion? What a good example of where the Labour party went wrong!

      Its perhaps an example of where this blog went wrong, but its really beyond redemption now.

      On the substantive issue, unfortunately there are some topics about which it is entirely impossible to have an honest debate and drugs remains one of them. Too often discussions drift into politicians denying that they have ever tried them, and there is a constant failure to discuss the issues involved. All parties are equally guilty. In the meantime, nothing at all changes about the use of drugs nor their global distribution

    Why Lamont left – and what happens next?

    Johann Lamont’s resignation was a surprise, in the terms of timing. Politicians – especially party leaders – rarely resign in newspaper interviews released over the weekend. Yet it seems this resignation has been coming for a while. This was not something that transpired over a matter of days, but weeks, months or even years depending on who you speak to.

    Labour shouldn’t offer cosmetic solutions for our education system

    Until told otherwise I am going to assume that all teachers have a deep and noble interest in the education of children and young people in Britain. There is, then, no need for them to put their hand on their heart or a bible or a framed photograph of Nicky Morgan and swear an oath to education.
