Right going wrong

Tom Clark

Editorial

Britain is gripped by the theatre of the absurd. The dialogue is rife with Alice in Wonderland arguments about the meaning of “meaningful,” and whether or not to back up the “backstop date.” The colourful chancers controlling the plot threaten to walk if they don’t prevail on such arcane distinctions, and warn of a “meltdown.” Meanwhile, pinstriped oddballs in the wings mutter darkly that they could any day bring it all crashing down by “weaponising” letters they claim to have tucked away in a drawer.

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect's July issue: Editor of Prospect Tom Clark tackles the major fault lines developing in the Conservative Party over Brexit, arguing that the issue could be one of those few occasions where the Tories can’t overcome a significant challenge. Alongside his lead essay, Andrew Gamble, professor of politics at the University of Sheffield, examines why many European parties on the right are struggling and why the continent should be worried. Conservative MP Lee Rowley charts what some of the policy areas that the Tories will have to deal with beyond Brexit if they are to get it right. Elsewhere in the issue: Nabeelah Jaffer tries to answer one of the most difficult questions of our time: how do you de-radicalise an extremist. Using examples from both the UK and Denmark, she argues that the UK model needs more work to be effective; Philip Collins asks why Britain’s towns have fallen by the wayside while its cities have thrived; and Sam Tanenhaus profiles “the real deal-maker” in Donald Trump’s White House, Mike Pompeo, after the Secretary of State oversaw the US-North Korea summit.
