Conservative leadership candidate of the week is Philip Hammond. Well, it is his turn, and he has been in clover since the election, relishing his transition from soon-to-be-sacked to impregnable chancellor. His Mansion House speech on Tuesday last week was a triumphant brandishing of the spreadsheet at his fallen or diminished foes in Downing Street.

Over the weekend, there has been much gossip about a supposed “dream ticket” strategy whereby Hammond, supported by David Davis , would take the Tory helm and steady the ship until the party’s next generation is ready to assume the mantle of leadership.

Inequality, Christianity and Implicit Racism in the US

In the United States, like many countries, income inequality has been reaching staggering proportions. In 1980, the average pre-tax income of the top 1% was 27 times the average pre-tax income of the bottom 50%. In 2014, this disparity increased to 81 times.

Inequality and poverty are not oblivious to religion, worldview, ethnicity, skin color, sexual orientation, and ability. The current epoch has been ripe for a renovated class analysis in which the trends of the political elite and their policies are dictated by the 1% , but multiculturalism and colour-blind ideology have flattened the various intersections of the 99% […]
