This week, Politeia published Zero Plus: The Principles of EU Renegotiation by leading EU lawyer and government legal adviser, Martin Howe QC. As author of Politeia's Safeguarding Sovereignty, Mr Howe inspired the European Union Act 2011. Howe's latest proposals have the potential to redefine the terms of Britain's EU debate.

Publication - Towards Safer NHS Nursing

Working Systems: Towards Safer NHS Nursing 

Dr. Tony Hockley 

Publication: June 2014
 

NHS failings, including many which affect the day to day care of sick people, have been all too prominent in the UK. They have raised serious concerns about the standards of care in our hospitals and led to a number of official inquiries and recommendations. They have prompted questions about the structures for accountability, the system for investigating concerns and, not least, staffing levels.

After Osbrown: Mending Monetary Policy

Douglas Carswell

 

As the summer months, the news from the Treasury seems upbeat. Growth is back. Economic forecasts are being revised upwards. The mood has switched from gloom to boom. 

In After Osbrown: Mending Monetary Policy, Douglas Carswell MP for Clacton, who previously worked in fund management, warns all is not what it seems. The warning signs are already there: this may yet prove to be another credit-induced recovery. The UK is increasingly dependent on consumer spending and mortgage debt. Savings and investment are down. The UK’s current account deficit is widening.

Nuclear Options: Powering the Future

Professor Roger Cashmore
David Mowat MP 
Dr Simon Taylor
 

Energy costs are now centre-stage in the policy debate at Westminster as both government and opposition promise to tackle rising costs. But if energy is to be affordable in the longer term, a secure supply of energy is needed. So too is a variety of sources. For that, says Politeia’s Nuclear Options: Powering the Future, nuclear will be needed.

Latin for Language Lovers: Ancient Langauges, the New Curriculm and GCSE

Latin in the new curriculum and GCSE is in danger of being the Cinderella of foreign languages. So far the official remit threatens two penalties. Secondary schools may not offer Latin as an option for the languages National Curriculum of 11-14 year olds (although primaries can). And, so far, the proposals for GCSE Latin do not include any specification to allow translation from English into Latin as an examinable option.

To the authors of Politeia’s new study, Latin for Language Lovers: Ancient Languages, the New Curriculum and GCSE, these omissions should be rectified when it comes to the final framework.
