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 […]
The Art of Diplomacy7th September 2016 · By Ben Carroll
As Theresa May joined world leaders at her first G20 conference, analysts were making various predictions on the reception she would receive in light of the UK vote to leave the EU. Unsurprisingly, much of the focus was spent outlining what the UK’s future trading position would be, and whether Britain will continue to provide […]
What will Dave & George leave behind?2nd September 2016 · By Simon Darby
The EU referendum outcome, Theresa May entering Number 10 and another protracted Labour leadership contest – given the level of political upheaval and speed of change over the past couple of months, it is understandable that little attention has, thus far, been expended on assessing Cameron and Osborne’s period in charge. As the summer holidays […]
Brexit bounce – the rise continues2nd September 2016 · By Mark Cazaly
We know that the Brexit vote caused a severe drop in stock markets and Sterling, albeit a much more muted one than expected. That didn’t last too long. Most major indices are now above pre-Brexit levels (although Sterling is still struggling) and the government is borrowing at record low levels (although this is mainly due […]
Theresa May – What’s in her inbox?30th August 2016 · By Dominic Church
Theresa May is back from her holiday in the Swiss Alps. Her attention will be on preparations ahead of parliament resuming on the 5th September and her first party conference as leader in early October. Westminster Advisers’ team of policy and communications specialists have considered what the high priority issues are in our new prime […]
Early prognosis: What does May’s Government mean for healthcare?26th August 2016 · By Emily Cameron
Theresa May has now returned from her walking holiday in the Swiss Alps to a red box filled to bursting with G20 summit preparation, Hinkley Point, and the small task of managing Britain’s withdrawal from the EU. At a recent Brexit seminar with Health Investor magazine, I spoke on what the change in tide means for […]
Maggie May?17th August 2016 · By Simon Darby
Having become the UK’s second female Prime Minister, it was somewhat inevitable that Theresa May would be compared to her fellow Conservative, Margaret Thatcher. As her premiership takes shape, are we looking at Maggie May or will the new PM forge a different path? There are certainly similarities in the way their personalities have been […]
