From The White Cliffs: an introduction 


This blog is concerned with British and world politics. It looks at both from the white cliffs. That is, from a British perspective.

In these politically tumultuous times commentators have overwhelmingly got their analyse wrong, with the media consensus having been that Remain would triumph in the EU referendum, and that Hillary Clinton would see off Donald Trump with relative ease.

By contrast, FTWC believed that everything was to play for in the EU referendum, even betting on a leave win against the market. The same went for the US election, where this blog argued that Donald Trump could still win against a media consensus that said America’s demographics made that impossible.

This blog’s most widely published article is Why Britain should leave the EU, which first appeared in News-Decoder on June 21st. It was subsequently published in these pages, and in Global Young Voices.
