The Left’s Elusive Message: Old hats are still old, the Anglo-American case (part II)

The phrase ‘old hat’, as one would expect, means something that is tediously familiar or outdated. Yet, walking through Shoreditch or Brooklyn, old hats seem stylish. What the owners of such hats probably aren’t willing to admit is that they paid around five times what the original owner did. This could be a metaphor for the political climate in the US and UK today.

Last week I wrote about who the left in British and American p

Anyone paying attention to the US Senate race in 2018 will know the Democrats have a huge problem on their hands; most seats up for reelection are not just held by Democrat incumbents, they are in states that Donald Trump carried by large margins.

Across the pond this summer, those paying attention (who are not die hard Jeremy Corbyn fans) can also point to why Labour lost; they didn’t talk to the middle classes or what I senti

Britain’s Foreign Office and diplomatic service have a proud history. Moreover, Britain’s engagement with the outside world goes back a few thousand years. These islands have historically been good at absorbing external influences within and influencing the internal situation of others.

One hundred years ago, I would be writing about the glorious empire on which the sun never sets, and the growing fortunes of our war against Ge

If you speak to anyone from UKIP, leaving the EU can be achieved in a week. They base this claim on a pamphlet by Gerard Batten, the gist of which dictates that repealing the 1972 European Communities Act ‘dances around Article 50’ and means Britain’s membership is no longer valid and all commitments and laws that apply are nullified. As such, negotiating an exit of any sorts is unnecessary and Britain would then be free to negotiate any trade deal and relationshi

Criza din Ucraina a deteriorat relațiile dintre Uniunea Europeană și Rusia, ajungîndu-se la sancțiuni reciproce, precum și la acuze aduse de către Bruxelles Moscovei. Astfel, aceasta din urmă ar folosi mass-media și centrele sale culturale pentru contracararea și destabilizarea politicilor UE. În ace

Is it not true that any government will react to what it conceives to be a threat? The sophistication of that reaction may vary, but when a system considers itself threatened by a person, organisation or concept, it is they who will have to suffer the consequences. If you disagree with this, I suggest you stop reading because this article ain’t getting any prettier.

I know in my heart of hearts that the Russian government does

Strategic communication can be described as a developing subfield within communication related to the activities of disciplines including public relations, management communication, and advertising. It explores the capacity of all organizations – not only corporations, but also not-for-profit organizations (including advocacy and activist groups) and government – for engaging in purposeful communication. Nowadays strategic communication is fundame

Era anul 1996 şi am fost selectat în grupul de studenţi ai Facultăţii de Ştiinţe Politice şi Administrative de la Universitatea Babeş-Bolyai din Cluj Napoca care urma să-şi desfăşoare practica de studiu la Parlamentul României. Proiectul de cercetare pentru care optasem se axa pe cooperarea transfrontalieră / euroregională. În consecinţă, am fost repartizat la Comisia de politică externă a Camerei Deputaţilor din România.

Since this article will largely have a Romanian and Russian audience, I will spell it out: this election may become known as the ‘election of expectations’. The Conservatives expected to walk to power and have an increased majority, whereas Labour were a walking disaster expected to be wiped out. The UK was expected to take the so-called ‘hard-Brexit’ model; but ‘hard-Brexit’ is now an open question.
