Unboxing Churchill

With the world gripped by the most significant anti-racist demonstrations in half a century, why are we still obsessing over Churchill? Do we overstate the power and significance of ageing Nazis in off-brand polo shirts running around Trafalgar Square? Could Britain actually shrink its police? Plus: so farewell then, DFiD. How the spread of fake data is producing a “Liar’s Dividend”. And why Marcus Rashford can only nutmeg the Government once. 


  • “The goal of far right politics IS violence. So in a sense the conduct of its supporters is beside the point.” – Alex Andreou
  • “Creating new crimes to support their authority is what autocrats do.” – Ros Taylor
