Liz Kendall’s speech at Reuters

Here is the text of Liz Kendall’s speech, “Responsibility and Reform”, delivered a...

Tony Blair and Michael Barber at the Strand Group

Tony Blair came to the Strand Group at King’s College, London, my new academic home, yesterday...

Bruce Anderson: Of course traditional architecture is better

Any fair-minded person should ask themselves why this creative, dedicated, and invaluable public servant is subjected to so much captious denigration

Bruce Anderson: Osborne has to find the right language

It is where the politics come in. The Chancellor has to get the tone right. While not shirking the bad news, he must persuade us that it will not last forever

Bruce Anderson: Creative tension is binding the coalition

Civil servants would rather work for a rude but effective minister than for a courteous and weak one

Bruce Anderson: Obama, not BP, is the villain of this piece

The evidence is overwhelming. Any fair-minded person who examines the Gulf of Mexico oil spillage is compelled to two conclusions. First, that there is no evidence of wrongdoing by BP. Second, that the President of the United States has behaved disgracefully.

Bruce Anderson: The euro is entering its final phase

No one told electorates in rich countries they would have to pay up for the rest, because even in war-guilty Germany every sane politician knew what the answer would be

Bruce Anderson: Momentum is the key for Cameron

It is not clear whether his changes to the 1922 Committee were either necessary or wise. It is useful to allow backbenchers to have an outlet for their grievances

Bruce Anderson: Cameron had to risk Tory dismay

By agreeing to negotiate with the Liberals in good faith, the Tory leader was able to occupy the moral high ground, and use his charm to create political momentum

Bruce Anderson: Mistakes that cost Mr Cameron dear

If William Hague or Ken Clarke had been Shadow Chancellor, the Tory leader would have been kissing hands on Friday

Bruce Anderson: Cameron could be our de Gaulle

He's from the hard-working, public-serving, upper-middle class, not from some secretive hereditary caste that is cut off from the rest of society

Bruce Anderson: Why left-wingers should look right

As a good Burkean, I would never come between a man and his prejudices. Yet there are times when some prejudices deserve to be overridden. This is one of them

Bruce Anderson: Don't be taken in by Clegg's 'niceness'

The Liberals seem to be able to get away with anything

Bruce Anderson: It's Cameron's authenticity that could prove decisive

His vision is not quite as dramatic as the Tamworth Manifesto – but it’s not far off

Bruce Anderson: I have never known the Tories to be so committed to the poor

Thatcher's range of human sympathy was confined to the striving middle class

Bruce Anderson: Shock, horror... America places its own interests first

The illusions about a new world order were a half-holiday from realism

Bruce Anderson: Only a different leadership can save the Irish church

Out of weakness its bishops condoned both terrorists and sexual terrorists
