The innovation challenge: a matter of location, location, location?17th October 2016 · By Emily Cameron
From “prizes” to “exchanges”, “Expos” to “scorecards” and everything in between, national innovation initiatives have always been at the forefront of the health service transformation agenda. But who and what really drives innovation? And how can the health service ensure that new solutions are adopted in a way that truly transforms the NHS and brings […]
The Brexit Fightback17th October 2016 · By Bobbie Davies
Last week saw scrutiny of the Government’s plans for Brexit really kick into gear. MPs got the chance to debate Brexit in detail, whilst Labour launched its plan to pose 170 questions to the Government on the UK’s future outside the EU (one for every day between now and the triggering of Article 50). Meanwhile, the […]
Westminster Advisers supports World Mental Health Day12th October 2016 · By Alice Buckley
On Monday evening, Westminster Advisers supported a World Mental Health Day event run by Talk for Health, a social enterprise teaching therapeutic talking skills to promote mental wellbeing. Highlights included a discussion with Talk for Health’s patron, the fabulously well-dressed, Turner award-winning artist Grayson Perry, and hearing about the personal experiences of service users who […]
Online conversations about Brexit5th October 2016 · By Marc Woolfson
Using digital analytics tools, Westminster Advisers has examined the extent to which Britons and Europeans are engaging with the topic of Brexit online. We’ve found that MEPs are even more focused on Brexit than MPs, and the Irish public are searching for Brexit news almost as much as residents of the UK themselves. Conversations about […]
Brexit Backslapping in Birmingham3rd October 2016 · By Simon Darby
Birmingham has witnessed a bout of Brexit backslapping as Conservative conference has got underway in a buoyant mood. Theresa May’s confirmation that Article 50 will be invoked by the end of March 2017 has been enthusiastically received, as has her ‘Global Britain’ vision of the country seeking trade opportunities beyond Europe. For many party delegates, […]
Corbyn: terminal or just long-term?3rd October 2016 · By Joseph Jones
The red drapes are down, flyers collected and the podium packed up and shipped off to storage (presumably standing next to Ed’s ten commandments). Hacks and hecklers alike have left Liverpool and politics returns to normal. Jeremy Corbyn is still running the sideshow while the country looks to Conservatives. But the question pressing against the […]
The French and the British Problem23rd September 2016 · By Alice Buckley
From the Battle of Hastings to the Iraq War, there have been more than a few occasions where Britain and France haven’t exactly seen eye to eye. I spent a whole term at university, studying a paper called ‘The French and the British Problem’, trying to work out why. For centuries, the French and British […]
The Week In Westminster: All around the world23rd September 2016 · By Simon Darby
With Parliament in recess for party conference season, the action has largely taken place away from Westminster this week. Indeed, many of our leading politicians have used the time to get some travelling done. Theresa May has been in the US and given her first address to the UN General Assembly. Reflecting on the unprecedented […]
27/121st September 2016 · By Ben Carroll
As many in the Westminster bubble focus their attention on what the UK’s future will look like post-Brexit, it is worth remembering that any such deal must be ratified by the EU’s 27 other member states. This week, Westminster Advisers hosted a breakfast with Stephen Booth, Co-Director of Open Europe, who discussed the different approaches […]
Controlling from the centre: the new era of government policymaking9th September 2016 · By Angus Hill
While the new political landscape is becoming clearer, there are still more questions than answers when it comes to Theresa May’s new government. That was the message we heard this week when we were joined by Chris Ship, ITV News’ Deputy Political Editor for a breakfast roundtable with senior business leaders to look at the […]

NYLON: Brotherly love or sibling rivalry?8th September 2016 · By Ben Carroll
London and New York have been regarded as the world’s two financial powerhouses for decades now. Having flourished during the periods of mass deregulation to the financial markets in the 1980s and 90s, they survived the catastrophic 2008 crash, coming out as even stronger allies. A recent Financial Times article claimed financiers in London now […]
