    The Brexit vote and General Election were both about austerity and inequality

The Brexit vote and General Election were both about austerity and inequality

The unexpected result of the general election is just another case of voters punishing governments for their handling of the economy, writes Jonathan Hopkin. He argues citizens have had enough of an economic system that deliberately benefits only the few. Established political parties have failed to provide a vision for change, and so new political leaders who do so […]

    Brexit will disrupt financial markets – but systemic risk is unlikely

Brexit will disrupt financial markets – but systemic risk is unlikely

Brexit will probably cause disruption in markets, but systemic risk is unlikely. This is because we’re likely to see increased financial fragmentation and caution in the face of uncertainty, write Jon Danielsson, Robert Macrae and Eva Micheler.

With less than two years until Britain leaves the EU, the implications of Brexit for financial stability are of some concern. Two key central bankers […]

    The OECD could replace the EU as a driver of UK public policy after Brexit

The OECD could replace the EU as a driver of UK public policy after Brexit

The EU has had a major role in shaping UK public policy since the country’s accession in 1973. Janice Morphet writes that with this influence set to end following Brexit, it is an open question as to how policy will be shaped in the UK in the years to come. She suggests that a different international organisation, the OECD, […]

    Introducing the Generation Brexit project – a chance for millennials to shape Brexit

Introducing the Generation Brexit project – a chance for millennials to shape Brexit

Young people don’t vote – or that was the conventional wisdom. However, polling data from the 2017 UK General Election suggest an unprecedented youth turnout, especially when compared with the Brexit vote. Jennifer Jackson-Preece and Roch Dunin-Wąsowicz introduce the Generation Brexit project, which addresses the politicisation of millennials. This LSE-based project will give a voice to the millennial generation that until recently has been largely disengaged […]

    Brexit has diminished the resonance of English identity politics

Brexit has diminished the resonance of English identity politics

Throughout the referendum on EU membership, the notion that English nationalism had become a driving force behind the eventual ‘Leave’ vote gained credence. However, Andrew Mycock argues that both in the referendum, and more immediately this General Election campaign, the resonance of England as a national political entity has proven in fact to be somewhat limited. 
The proposition that England has emerged […]

    Voters will not be happy with Brexit unless it comes with a strong welfare state

Voters will not be happy with Brexit unless it comes with a strong welfare state

It’s all too easy to forget that when Theresa May called her snap election, three years earlier than she’d repeatedly promised, her party was 18-20 percentage points ahead of Labour in the polls. It seemed like a clear opportunity for the Conservatives to win a landslide. But the result has robbed her party of its majority. Sofia Vasilopoulou argues that […]

    Parliament has a strong and clear mandate for Brexit, Remainers and EU politicians shouldn’t question it

Parliament has a strong and clear mandate for Brexit, Remainers and EU politicians shouldn’t question it

The recent general election gave the UK Parliament a strong and clear popular mandate for delivering Brexit. Annette Bongardt and Francisco Torres emphasise that with more than 85 per cent of the vote on a clear Brexit platform (Conservatives, Labour, UKIP) – promising to respect the Brexit referendum result – not only the new government but indeed almost the entire […]

    The net migration target is one of the strangest political fetishes in recent history

The net migration target is one of the strangest political fetishes in recent history

The net migration target is one of the strangest political fetishes of modern political history, writes Jonathan Wadsworth. He argues that it is far from obvious why any government would seek to target something over which it has very little control. Even if migration from the EU fell to zero, the net migration numbers would be way above the […]

The GE2017 outcome was no Remainers’ revenge

British PM Theresa May’s election battering had nothing to do with Brexit, argues Brian Melican. Politically speaking, Britain is now a post-Brexit landscape: for politicians, the process might only be starting, but for voters, it has already happened. 

It’s become a truism that being a pollster is hard work these days. Yet while the problems plaguing psephologists are now almost proverbial and […]

The DUP has been given a vital opportunity to shape Brexit

Rather unexpectedly, the DUP has become the focus of British politics. Yet it is a party few outside Northern Ireland know much about. Sophie Whiting reveals some of the characteristics of its members, and outlines how the party may negotiate a pact with the Conservatives. Ultimately, she argues, it’s not just the DUP but the dynamics of politics in Northern […]
