We need to be clear and robust when it comes to tackling security and ending the abuses of European human rights laws.
Guido understands the Home Secretary is currently on a conference call with thirty Tory MPs demanding answers to the migrant situation in the channel as reported by Guido this morning. Guido hears she is being ‘pretty robust’ about how unacceptable the situation is to her. She is also arguing that while the UK remains in […]

The Government has to generate revenue quickly, but austerity and spending cuts are not viable options.
When the British government imposed a three-day working week during the oil crisis in 1973, many economists expected a productivity drop of at least 40%. It did not happen. People adjusted, worked harder and became more efficient. In the end, even though people were in work less, they were working more. Fast-forward fifty years and […]
A 30-year-old Syrian man died after moving to a hotel used by the Home Office to house asylum seekers amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The new officers are part of a national recruitment push.
Raab and PAtel advocate the positions of their departments, which are based on different concerns and priorities. It is for the Prime Minister to decide.
Promises regarding an inquiry into Islamophobia have come to nought and so we continue to find ourselves unable to respond to criticism with a clear name.
Legalise the mainstream ones, such as cannabis. Decriminalise the more harmful, but lesser used, ones such as heroin.
Another raft of allegations against Priti Patel came out last night from the Sun and Newsnight, including from her time at the Department for International Development; with the Times claiming successive permanent secretaries at the department were aware of allegations. So why did they sit on the allegations for three years?… These anonymous briefings from disgruntled civil servants came […]
On Saturday, in a move that stunned the media and politicians alike, the permanent secretary of the Home Office, Sir… Read more »
At the heart of the Rutnam row is its reservations not only about how the post-Brexit journey is being negotiated, but about taking it in the first place.
Was news of the former released to drive Philip Rutnam’s resignation and statement down the news agenda? You might say that – we couldn’t possibly comment.
Here’s a trick question: which Home Secretary has been subject to hostile briefings from within the department that they are too Right-wing, too populist, too lazy, too stupid and a bully? It’s a trick because the answer is: almost all of them. You can pretty much take your choice from any of those who have […]
The Home Office’s diversity unit is already twenty people strong, yet now another lucrative job is being advertised. The additional job – curious for a government that has briefed heavily it wants to streamline the civil service – will pay between £70,000 and £80,000 a year. Nice work if you can get it… The advert […]

If Downing Street doesn’t grip the campaign against Patel by allies of her Permanent Secretary and othes, it may spiral out of control.
The Cambridgeshire Constabulary have been rightly criticised, but the Government needs to set timorous senior officers on firmer legal ground.
Extinction Rebellions all white, all middle class protesting vandals are finally being arrested. They look delighted.
Police unimpressed with the prospect of getting muddy. It’s a dirty job…

Today I am launching a Free Trade Parliamentary Caucus, to help Parliamentarians learn about the topic and to advocate for free trade.
The General Election result finally removes all the sophists, timewasters, and referendum-poopers who have been metaphorically gluing themselves to the Brexit bus. It also provides a double mandate for the Conservative Party leadership. An unambiguous Boris majority quashes any prospects for Labour and Lib Dem guerillistas. Their referendum-repudiating manifesto turned them into oath breakers – […]
Before the end of June 2021, EU nationals living in the UK need to apply for Settled Status (EUSS) in order to continue living and working here. Amelia Gentleman called the application process via the app the ‘’gateway between belonging and exclusion’’. In this blog, Catherine Barnard, Fiona Costello and Sarah Fraser Butlin (University of Cambridge) claim that the importance … Continued
We must not allow a situation where, through oversight, such a child, years from now, could face a Windrush-type debacle.
We need to stop treating addicts like criminals and forcing people who want to experiment to forge contacts with black-market dealers.
Sajid Javid said it would be impossible to reconcile with the Government’s commitments to EU nationals currently in the UK, and it still looks as if he’s right.
However, its current focus on urban chicken shops risks excluding rural areas, where ‘county lines’ criminality is a growing concern.
