A friend on the street offers you £50. Would you take it? Yes. A murderer offers you £50 to be their friend for life. Would you take it? Probably not. Yet European governments continue to financially ally theirselves with the nation equivalent of a dangerous criminal. This serious misjudgement leaves their economies vulnerable and theirContinue reading “The Cost of Immoral Money“

If Boris Resigns, What’s Next?
For the past month or so every news channel and politician from around the country has thrown an absolute hissy fit because the Tories threw a Christmas party at No.10. Calls have been made for Boris to resign and in a poll done by YouGov 56% of Brits believe he should go. Recent evidence fromContinue reading “If Boris Resigns, What’s Next?”
Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Life?
Humanity has never been free but the comparative comfort of the western world, especially the United States, in recent history has bred a particular illusion of freedom from not only society but from nature itself. Disease has always stalked humanity and for so long humanity has been the meekest of prey. The people of EuropeContinue reading “Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Life?”
Time For Bojo To Go
It is not abnormal to feel contempt for politicians. There is something so blatantly hypocritical and sleazy about some, it gives the ordinary voter absolute glee to mock them. And then there is Boris Johnson. Once a national meme who spouted out fantastically complicated words, he has transformed to a disgrace of a leader withContinue reading “Time For Bojo To Go”
Does The University Of St Andrews Actually Care About Its Students?

The UN Human Rights Council: A Host Of Violators
UNGA Resolution 60/251 created the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC), “responsible for promoting universal respect for the protection of all human rights and fundamental freedoms for all.” One would not imagine the members of the UNHRC included countries that systematically violate the same human rights. As part of its mechanisms, the UNHRC and its membersContinue reading “The UN Human Rights Council: A Host Of Violators”
The Socialist Propaganda At The Core Of British Education
In the early 1920s a fierce debate erupted and caught education in the centre. Darwinian scientists wished to ingrain their principle theory of evolution within the American public school curriculum – a move the church opposed. In the end, creationism reigned supreme, and numerous states placed an all-encompassing ban on the promotion of material thatContinue reading “The Socialist Propaganda At The Core Of British Education”
Is The UK Now An Authoritarian Nation?
Vivid images of George Orwell’s 1984 come to mind when one combines the United Kingdom and ‘authoritarian’ in the same sentence. Not one person would have guessed as the clocks ticked into this new decade that in less than a few months the free world as we knew it would change completely, and perhaps forever.Continue reading “Is The UK Now An Authoritarian Nation?”
Bridging The Divide: A New Socio-Political Theory
Competing political principles and ideologies have brought us to crossroads. The camps we broadly conceive as the left and the right appear to be more divided than ever before, with the centre often seeking to find a working compromise or appearing as a moderate version of one of the aforementioned tribes. Our socio-political landscape reflectsContinue reading “Bridging The Divide: A New Socio-Political Theory”
