'Small c' conservative commentator Douglas Murray wrote an interesting piece last week which highlighted the total lack of ideas or conviction within the Conservative Party, and the ideological retreat of conservatism more generally.

There is now a whole generation of young Britons who have grown up and had their formative experiences and influences since the introduction of legislative devolution in the late 1990's. They've lived their whole life under the current constitutional arrangement and ha...

Our past articles have been heavily critical of the devolution process that has been embraced by the mainstream unionist parties. While this criticism of the particulars of the Smith Commission and the new Scotland Act is important, it is equally important to challenge...
