There are better ways to describe the problem of left-wing bias – such as what I would more accurately describe as identity politics, or postmodernism.
Chloe Westley: The EU, the Commons – and last week’s votes. The people should fire the MPs who won’t follow their instructions.
I believe that the actions of politicians over the last two years have seriously weakened trust in the system.
There are some brilliant MPs, who go above and beyond. But the majority have hardly covered themselves in glory over Brexit.
Chloe Westley: The twisted ideology that upends reason – and presents terror backers as innocent victims
Postmodernism strips the likes of Shamima Begum of personal responsibility and judges her solely by ethnicity, religion and class.
Chloe Westley: A brilliant head teacher, a transformational city school – and the need for mavericks
Last week, I met with one such person. Her name is Katharine Birbalsingh – founder and headmistress of the Michaela Community School.
The suffrage movement fought for those of all backgrounds to have the vote. This cannot be called into question for the sake of political gain.
The desire to protect your home is as universal as the desire to love, to work and to raise a family. Why should protecting your country be any different?
Chloe Westley: A message to Remain politicians and their second referendum plot. Vote Leave Two would end your careers.
These politicians have no idea about the wave of contempt that will engulf them, just as they didn’t understand England outside the M25 in 2016.
Chloe Westley: If the Conservatives bow to May’s betrayal of the referendum result, they will be cursed for a generation
By refusing to consider the option of leaving without a deal, Conservative Ministers are essentially admitting defeat. And we deserve better than a defeatist political class.
Peterson rejects collectivist doctrines, and instead emphasises the importance of the individual. This is why so many people say they have been inspired by his work.
Chloe Westley: Liam, Michael, Penny, Esther – don’t let us down. Speak up in Cabinet for everyone who voted Leave
Don’t allow the UK to get locked into an unending transition, the single market, or the customs union – and resist the lazy ‘Norway option’.
Chloe Westley: In praise of the small business people I met, who help create the wealth which keeps public services going
During this Budget run-up, many of those I met raised business rates as a killer, plus council tax, the apprenticeship levy, parking charges and corporation tax, too.
If I were May, I’d be listening to activists at fringe events instead of beating to Whitehall’s hesitant drum.
Chloe Westley: The pernicious, corrosive poison of gossip in politics – and how it blights women especially
We’re judged not only on what we do and say, but often also on our relationships (or lack thereof!), our hair, our weight, the clothes we wear, and so on.
