There is a gaping hole at the center of British politics where ideas used to be

What do Liz Truss, Rishi Sunak or Keir Starmer imagine is happening in Britain today, as crops fail, food bank queues lengthen and profits soar? How do they understand the unique combination of social, economic and ecological crises of 2022 that is already wreaking havoc on many people’s lives? The truth is, we don’t really know, and maybe neither do they. Truss has certainly articulated a coherent ideological position – that taxes and bureaucracy have prevented the British economy from growing – but it is a thesis so easily refuted, so detached from everyday life, so obviously rooted in ThatcheriteRead News

Political notebook: TU chairman Carson ‘bearish’ about politics

Featured: University of Tulsa President Brad Carson, a two-term Democratic representative from Oklahoma’s Second District and an unsuccessful 2004 U.S. Senate candidate, offered a sobering assessment of state politics during who appeared Thursday at the Tulsa Press Club. “I’m really excited about it,” Carson said. “My disappointment…comes from the fact that I may no longer share what my parents taught me, which is that politics is the most important way to change the world. “Our culture today, traditions, higher education, these are the things – I tell my son, ‘Pursue those. You can change the world, though.’ That’s important. TheseRead News

Dan Sewell: Retirement doesn’t suit this old reporter, so let’s talk politics

I was supposed to be retired. But the end last year of a career in daily journalism that spanned 44 years left me unconvinced that my writing days were over. Having spent most of my life with The Associated Press, the global news organization committed to reporting news without fear or favor or expressing personal opinions, and with The Enquirer in editing roles, I enjoyed the new freedom to decide what I thought about things and write about my personal opinions. Not always a good thing, especially on Twitter (find me @dansewell), where it’s all too easy to quickly getRead News

‘Fuelled by Rose’: Politics looms larger than ever on the outskirts of Edinburgh

Politics always plays a big part in the fringes of Edinburgh. But with an outgoing prime minister, several Westminster scandals and a fast-moving Tory leadership race, the potential for material is unusually ripe for performers this year. As well as interviews with political heavyweights including Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and current and former Labor leadership including Gordon Brown, Keir Starmer, Angela Rayner and Jeremy Corbyn, the satire arena has a large part in politics. “There’s a real appetite for politics everywhere at the moment,” said standup, journalist and former Labor councilor Ayesha Hazarika, who has had to leave writingRead News

When politics returns to Kiev

On a trip to Kyiv earlier this summer, I was struck by what was there that I expected not to be – young people sharing Aperol spritzes at a roadside cafe, municipal services such as collect trash and work with what wasn’t there. before it was everywhere in the capital of Ukraine—politics. The current crisis caused by Russia’s illegal and irrational war against Ukraine has produced popular images of the opposition. President Volodymyr Zelensky’s impressive courage, aided by excellent communication skills, has turned him into an almost Churchillian figure. And Zelensky is not alone. Ukrainians from all walks of lifeRead News

Bitcoin music sheet: Fiat’s policy sucks

This is an opinion piece by Jimmy Song, a Bitcoin developer, educator, entrepreneur and programmer with over 20 years of experience. Link to audio reading of the article here. It’s a weird zero-sum status perception game where winners make the rules. Everything is judged by intentions and nothing by results. This offends me as an engineer because it’s really a way of saying that reality doesn’t matter and that majority opinion can trump facts. It is a collective illusion about the importance of our opinions. When discussing politics, everyone is the smug, arrogant, smart teenager who thinks he knows everything.Read News

Political Podcast: All the Political News You Missed in the Last Week

Last week, Senators Joe Manchin and Chuck Schumer announced that they had reached an agreement on a climate, tax and health care bill, an outcome that seemed unlikely just a few weeks ago. In this installment of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, the crew discusses how Congress has been passing a number of laws recently and whether that trend will continue with the new Inflation Reduction Act. Speaking of inflation, the team also breaks down how the latest economic debate — whether the United States is heading into recession — could affect the midterm elections. Finally, they cover some juicy politicalRead News

Albanese wants to change the way politics is done. This means that the way policy is reported will also have to change.

If politics really needs to be done differently, as Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has promised, then the way politics is reported needs to be done differently too. This is because the power of the media to portray will determine how the electorate perceives whether changes occur. It is a mutual process. The way politicians behave affects the media’s portrayal of them, and how the media portrays politicians in turn affects political practice. A benchmark to help us assess whether the promised change will materialize is provided by academic Judith Brett’s characterization of the Morrison administration: The blame-shifting, the careless inattention,Read News

Politics Podcast: The Polls and Pundits Disagree (Again)

The conventional wisdom that Republicans were doing well in the middle of their term was not always confirmed in survey numbers that showed Democrats were leading many competitive Senate races across the country. This discrepancy is also reflected in the relatively large discrepancy between the FiveThirtyEight Lite and Deluxe medium-term forecasts. In this part of “Model Talk” of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, Nate Silver and Galen Druke discuss what to do about it and answer audience questions about the forecast model. They also touch upon the health of the poll industry and how much President Biden’s success in the potentialRead News

We ignore the moods in politics at our peril

Jonathan Freedland offers the insightful view that Brexit is more a feeling than a real definition (Brexit is a mood, not a policy – and Liz Truss holds all her illusions, 22 July). If so, how can democrats debate and represent sentiment? What is the mood-equivalent of political expression? Do we expect democratic citizens to vote by heart or soul? Should the politics of sentiment always be the province of demagogues and imbeciles? The political language of rational choice politics says little about emotion, often dismissing it as emotional confusion that distracts from interest-based preferences. Therefore, we are often shockedRead News

Lying in politics, Hannah Arendt and me

A reader asked the other day if it was stressful for me to write about politics. There are many ways to answer this question. I could have interpreted this as a criticism of my column on Ray Fosse and Pete Rose; a hint that I was writing about trivial things when I should have been dealing with the big issues of the day. (As if performative arrogance and bravado aren’t among the most real and urgent problems of our time.) But I don’t think he meant it, so I answered as best I could. To paraphrase myself: aside from theRead News

Kenya’s young voters have a dilemma: they don’t like ethnic politics, but they feel trapped by it

In and out of elections, young Kenyans are an important political cohort. People between the ages of 18 and 35 make up about 30% of the population and nearly 40% of registered voters in the 2022 election. According to World Bank estimates, nearly 20% of young Kenyans were not employed or in education in 2019, a frustration that can influence their political views. The COVID-19 pandemic likely worsened the situation with respect to prisons in 2020 and 2021. None of the major political parties and alliances presented a clear vision for young people in the current elections. Instead, the electorateRead News

The Contemporary Clinic #2: Politics in the Clinic – Notes

When I first started my clinical practice, I had all the financial support I could hope for; my parents helped me rent a nice office, with some cool looking furniture to go with it, in a very central location in Rio de Janeiro. But because I had no patients, the room was mostly used as a meeting room for the political collective to which I belonged, a communist organization which greatly influenced my interest in economic dynamics in psychoanalytic institutions and, because of that interest, increased my disillusionment with the Lacanian School where i do my analytic training. I didn’tRead News

SCOTUS is a victim of partisan politics – InsideSources

The reputation of the Supreme Court in the public has been damaged. Fewer than one in three Americans think the institution is doing a good job, putting the court just above the sewer where congressional and media approval resides. Two decades ago, the court’s approval rating was 50 percent, and 60 percent of Americans thought the court generally did a good job. One reason for the decline: the court’s tradition of institutional silence about its decisions puts its reputation in the hands of supporters who dominate our political discourse. The court’s job is to respect and faithfully interpret the Constitution,Read News

Kentucky politics distilled: Abortions remain legal, for now This week in Kentucky politics… Abortions are still legal in the state, but access depends on a lawsuit going through the court system. Kentucky’s stalled ban on abortion drugs could run afoul of federal rules if it’s ever allowed to take effect. Gov. Andy Beshear said the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling was “broadly correct,” but also said some abortion restrictions are necessary. And the Ohio Valley is poised to become an “abortion desert” as the fallout from the Dobbs decision continues. We got a look at who’s raising the most money for next year’s governor’s race.

12 books on U.S. divisive policy and implications for climate action

The final decisions in the Supreme Court’s election period 2021-2022 should prompt a major reconsideration on the part of climate activists and communicators. Commentary Here’s why. While liberal activists have spent decades trying to turn positive public opinion polls into effective policies, conservatives spent those decades creating the conservative court that simply rejected public opinion polls on gun control (60% of Americans want stricter gun control laws), climate change (65% believes that the government should do more in the field of climate change) and abortion (61% say it should be legal in all or most cases). Clearly, creating greater publicRead News

It’s All About Statistics: What Politics and Baseball Have in Common

In his final column as host of The House, Chris Hall talks to three political strategists to examine the intersection of two of his favorite subjects: politics and baseball. There is a saying that life imitates art. But for my money, there is another comparison that is just as true. Politics mimics football. Politics and baseball are filled with tradition. There are many rules; some are written, and some are really just traditions of time. Today, both are relying more on today’s metrics – data and statistics – to attract new supporters, and to win. In football, those stats helpRead News

When Politics Enters the Therapy Chamber

How do therapists understand and experience politics in their work with clients? This was the central question of a study by psychologist Laura Anne Winter of the University of Manchester in the UK. Surprisingly, despite the impact of politics on our personal lives and well-being, not to mention the world we find ourselves in now, doctors are generally lacking in training on how to navigate with their clients. To further investigate how clinicians make sense of politics in the therapy room, Winter recruited participants who were trainees and practitioners in psychotherapy, counseling, and psychology. In the final tally, there wereRead News

The Bullhorn Policy of Roe v. calf

At times like these, when an issue has gotten American political life into high gear, a wise man often steps forward to reiterate a truism: all politics is local. No longer. Not when Senator Elizabeth Warren, a Democrat from Massachusetts, is demanding that President Biden establish abortion clinics in states in response to a “national health emergency” (an idea that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sadly called “the very smallest step”). For the progressives who lead the Democratic Party, all politics is national. Whether it’s abortion-on-demand, gun bans, phasing out fossil fuels, you name it, the Democrats think the locals (rhymes withRead News

All Politics Must Be Local – And Response

All politics locally is a phrase often attributed to former US House of Representative Tip O’Neill, though he did not originate it. If we look at voting behavior, turnout in completely local elections is alarmingly low. The US presidential election cycle is driving more voters, not local issues. An example of the impact of the presidential election on local voting is evidenced by the totals of votes for the Red Bank commissioner over the last two elections. In 2018, there were 3,856 votes for overall rank. By comparison, the 2020 election (with a presidential election) saw a total of 4,714Read News
