Billboard Politics in Hungary-- Hungarian Parliamentary Elections (II)

Gulay Icoz |

Days away from the Hungarian Parliamentary Elections, Hungarian Civic Alliance (Fidesz) and United for Hungary, the opposition camps are fierce in their campaigns, particularly in the message they pass to the electorate via billboards. In this piece, I like to draw comparisons between the billboards used by Fidesz and the opposition political parties, highlight which […]

EU correspondents are needed to make differentiated integration accessible to the public

Asimina Michailidou, Hans-Jörg Trenz, Future of Europe blog |

In a time of growing political complexity and differentiated integration, the role of high-quality journalism on the EU is more important than ever, argue EU3D researchers Asimina Michailidou and Hans-Jörg Trenz. Two years into the Conference on the Future of Europe, citizens remain largely unaware of the platform where they are meant to have their […]

Don't blame voters for Brexit

Jon Danzig |

Just 24-hours after the EU referendum on 23 June 2016, I posted this on my blog: ‘Just over half of those who voted bought manky lies dressed up as a better life after Brexit. They were told they’d get their country back. Their lives would be transformed.  ‘More jobs, homes, schools and hospitals. Less migrants. No […]

Broken Britain

Jon Danzig |

I need some work done at home and invited firms to quote. “That’s a smart van,” I said in passing to the managing director of a limited company that visited last week. “Oh, we’ve got six of those,” he replied. We went through the project. In the past, companies had sent me quotes with the […]

Boris Johnson: A dangerous clown

Jon Danzig |

Boris Johnson is “not a complete clown”, his new communications director, Guto Harri, said this month adding, “he’s a very likeable character.” Really? I would say instead that Boris Johnson is a completely dangerous clown, and nothing he’s done for the country is at all likeable. Angela Rayner, the deputy Labour leader, questioned the seriousness […]

EU referendum broke 'rules' set by David Davis, MP

Jon Danzig |

The EU referendum was entirely flawed according to criteria set by former Brexit Secretary and ardent Brexiter, David Davis, on how referendums should be “done properly”. In July 2016, Tory MP, Mr Davis, accepted the result of the EU referendum and the dual-role of Brexit Secretary and Chief Brexit Negotiator in Theresa May’s new government. […]

The news changed and we got Brexit

Jon Danzig |

Brexit used to sit on the far side lines of politics. Indeed, the word ‘Brexit’ was only invented in 2012, and until the referendum, most people didn’t know what it meant. (Now it’s in the Oxford English dictionary.) Prior to 2011, tabloids such as the Daily Mail and Daily Express were more fixated on false […]

What they want: The end of the EU

Jon Danzig |

They want to see the end of the EU altogether. That’s been the aim of prominent Brexiters from the start. And it’s certainly the aim of the guy who started Brexit: former UKIP leader and MEP, and now President of the Reform Party, previously the Brexit Party, Nigel Farage. In September 2017, Mr Farage received […]
