If Jeremy Corbyn’s party were not so averse to capitalism, this would be a great opportunity for Labour
Will HuttonThe Tories have turned their back on the best of mainstream British business - and instead embraced hedge fund and private equity capitalism, ardent Brexiters. Its a huge opportunity for Labour. Not all business is their enemy- if only they could see it.
Both Labour and the Lib Dems would do well to study her crusading manifesto
Will HuttonThe zeitgeist is changing. Capitalism needs a reset but not a socialist transformation- a proposition driving Elizabeth Warren towards the Presidency. Its a political space vacant in British politics
Fifty years ago this autumn your columnist joined the Conservatives, signing up to a Tory ginger-group at university. Ten years later I was the MP for the Derbyshire constituency that remains my home.
Will HuttonThis is another powerful article from Matthew Parris, Liberal middle England Tories are beginning to leave the europhobic party of Mark Francois and Jacob Rees - Mogg - a trickle turning into a flood.
I’m leaving the Tories and voting Lib Dem
The party leader is polling so badly that we risk a hard Brexit and five more years of Boris Johnson, says Guardian columnist Jonathan Freedland
Will HuttonImagine a well led Opposition in a position to capitalise on the Remain majority - taking on an intellectually bankrupt party led by a liar. It would win a General Election. A brave article by Jonathan Freedland - speaking truth to Corbynite power
For the prime minister’s Europhobe supporters, Brexit has become nothing less than a religion. But it will never be the road to paradise
Will HuttonWe marched yesterday for a Peoples Vote, but had to settle for second best - Letwin’s amendment. Yet these wonderful million strong marches are powerful, good-humoured and immensely important. History is on our side. One day we will vote again - and win
In the House of Commons, MPs are debating the PM's Brexit deal, amid uncertainty about whether the decisive vote on it will go ahead. The PM is trying to con...
Will HuttonThere are occasions when it is fundamental to listen to a parliamentarian in full forensic flow. Hear Keir Starmer out. It is devastating. Johnson’s deal is a mendacious, self damaging cul-de-sac.
Leave.EU played a decisive role in the British public’s historic vote to leave the EU on June 23rd. The campaign is remaining active throughout the UK.
Will HuttonHow many agree”we didn’t win two world wars to be pushed around by a Kraut” over a photo of Angela Merkel? Tweeted out by Leave.EU ? A tiny fraction. But a divided Opposition allows this detestable discourse -fostered by Johnson - to flourish. We are all shamed.
Labour’s leader is not my natural political bedfellow but I believe that he holds the key
Will HuttonJeremy Corbyn and Jo Swinson must make common cause to deliver a second referendum - either as the price of backing any deal or as the sole aim of a caretaker government led by Corbyn. Not natural bedfellows - but real politik for the common good
After three decades of intellectual decline, the Conservative party stands for nothing but Brexit, says sociologist and writer William Davies
Will HuttonJohn Major may mourn the Tory party is now a Brexit Party tribute band - but that is because it has no intellectual or philosophic anchors. All it offers is rage and resentment: a party subsumed by its Mephistophelean bargain with its right wing press
Boris Johnson will crash Britain out of the EU. The Lib Dems will overturn the 2016 vote. But I’ll deliver a public vote, says Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn
Will HuttonThis is powerful by Jeremy Corbyn with one fatal lacuna. He abdicates leadership. His intent is to stand aside and not campaign for either Remain or a deal in any referendum campaign. Unbelievable. He is now a dead man walking - crippling him & his party.
To achieve no-deal Brexit, Boris Johnson has exploited the weakness of our democracy
Will HuttonFrom rules-free referenda to the incapacity of the queen to ensure the unwritten codes that protect representative democracy are upheld, Brexit has exposed how decrepit our constitution is. We need wholesale reform
The thinking behind his new inquiry into high speed rail is political, not economic
Will HuttonWe need rail capacity and we need the benefits of connectivity to boost the 21st century economy. But HS2 which does both is detested by the right - hence the “Review “ and another clear signal of an Autumnal election. Its all mad.
Dislike of the Labour leader should not be allowed to get in the way of Britain’s need for a national government
Will HuttonMPs must now do the right thing. Given the spectacular lack of preparedness and immediate damage of No Deal in leaked Operation Yellowhammer docs + long term disastrous consequences there must be a bridge government, deadline extension + general election
In the UK and the US, the political wind will soon change in favour of those demanding good government
Will HuttonEven as Johnson and his malign consigliere Cummings prepare to complete a right wing revolution, there is a counter revolution beginning. Theirs is the last throw of the dice - with rotten foundations. New forces are abroad. Don’t despair!
