Why Number 10’s view of the UK-EU negotiations are misguided

On Monday evening, The Spectator ran a story based on the insights of a Number 10 insider on the state of the UK-EU negotiations, and the strategy that the British Government would pursue in the event of a delay to leaving the European Union on the 31st October. It was an insightful and worrying read on the precarious state of UK politics and underlined the arrogant, blustering approach to post-Brexit foreign relations that Number 10 has frequently espoused yet failed to underpin in terms of continuity trade deals, foreign policy successes or steady alliances.

The End of Westminster Democracy and What Happens Next

Being a Member of Parliament can be a surreal experience. This week I travelled down to London on the train after my usual Monday morning school run only to be informed by the time I had crossed the border that the British Government was closing parliament for five weeks that very evening.

What the Rebel Alliance should do next

Readers of my Herald Column by now will be acutely aware of my position on Brexit. Normal political tactics would be to assume a position of ambiguity in order to avoid offending electors and critically to be able to appear to be all things to all people. That's never been my style - in my acceptance speech following my first victory in 2010 I quoted Aneurin Bevan "We know what happens to people who stand in the middle of the road – they get run down."

It is difficult to spot a silver lining in Brexit's grim, grey cloud of constitutional self-harm. Plaid Cymru – The Party of Wales, though, are making the case that this low-point ought to mark the beginning of the end for 'managed decline' – which has been British Government policy since the deliberate de-industrialisation policies of the 1980s - in the majority of the UK's nations and regions.
