Pitching for Antics Spring 2017

I am currently preparing the next edition of Anticipations on the theme "It's the New Economy, Stupid?"


To Educate is to Empower

Many of my peers who fall into the 18-24 category will (albeit embarrassedly) admit that they have little to no knowledge about politics. As we have gotten older some have ventured to educate themselves through reading the newspaper or watching the news, but they lack a fundamental understanding of our political system. 


Spotlight on: Education Network

Labour must not shy away from tackling the failings in our education system

Joel Mullan reviews some of the insights emerging from the Young Fabians Education Network.


Northern Ireland - A Burning Problem

Northern Ireland. It’s tiny, it’s across a sea, and the main UK political parties don’t run there (whether they should is a topic for a different debate). Often, there is no incentive to engage with difficult issues because they won’t win elections.

However, the recent political scandals in Northern Ireland highlights just how important this small country can be.


Automated Responses

Automation: it’s inevitable and it’s here. As humanity’s technological capability continues enhancing, we are developing smarter ways to make our lives easier.


Labour and Tuition Fees

Labour should see reducing University fees as a long term goal, not a priority.

 


Anticipations Editorial: Education and Opportunity

It is an exciting and daunting challenge for me to take on the editorship of Anticipations against the backdrop of recent changes in the world. The UK voted to leave the EU, Donald Trump is president elect of the United States, and many of Labour’s sister parties in Europe join us hesitantly watching the rise of the “alt-right”.

 


Labour’s women’s problem

In my years here in this House I have long heard the Labour Party ask: what does the Conservative Party do for women? It just keeps making us prime minister.’



Theresa May’s first PMQs identified a terribly kept secret - the fact that Labour is failing women.

 

Nowhere was this better demonstrated than during Angela Eagle’s six-day leadership bid.


Day 3 on the campaign trail

Yesterday was the first full day of campaigning with the Florida Democratic Party. 


Day 2 of the Young Fabian Campaign Delegation to Orlando, Florida

Day 2 of the Young Fabian Campaign Delegation to Orlando, Florida began with a bustle of energy and enthusiasm. We launched our delegation with a visit to the local organising branch of the Clinton Campaign on East Colonial Road in the centre of Orlando. A full briefing on the city, the local issues and candidates followed and we enjoyed a thorough introduction to our work ahead.


Day 1 Operation Stop Trump Florida

We were excited to fly into Orlando,  Florida and begin the final half of the Young Fabians Operation Stop Trump delegation. 


What is the Alt-right? And should the Left be worried?

The alternative right or Alt-Right, is growing right wing element, centred in the US. The ‘CEO’ of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is Steve Bannon, a prominent Alt-righter. This gives the movement credence and is arguably the de-facto political ideology of Trump.
