Complaints of rising populist regimes sound like a broken record

22 Nov 2023
A conference focused on solutions for the UK's political challenges, including Brexit and calls for independence, fostered a multifaceted examination of issues rather than polarized debate. The event highlighted the need for progressives to understand the reasons behind Brexit votes and to engage with voters' concerns. In France, left-wing parties face challenges in connecting with voters, with proposals like the 'republican capital' aiming to address inequalities. The article emphasizes the importance of progressives reflecting on their disconnect with voters and adopting innovative approaches to regain trust and effectively manage the economy.

It's time to make sure billionaires pay their fair share of taxes

25 Oct 2023
The article discusses the issue of billionaires not paying their fair share of taxes, highlighting the case of Bernard Arnault, Europe's richest man, and his company LVMH's involvement in tax avoidance. It references a report by the European Taxation Observatory, which emphasizes the minimal taxes paid by billionaires and suggests that taxing their wealth could generate significant revenue. The article also mentions the upcoming global tax reform under the OECD, which aims to implement a uniform minimum tax rate for multinational corporations, reducing the benefits of tax havens. The author views this reform as a positive step towards addressing tax avoidance and hopes for further progress.

We need political satire as a coping mechanism

16 Aug 2023
Political satire is essential as a coping mechanism, especially during times of crisis, as it provides a sense of unity and prompts reflection and change. The decline of political satire in France, exemplified by the cancellation of shows like Les Guignols de l’info and Charline Vanhoenacker's program on France Inter, coincides with a rise in political anger and frustration. The UK's ability to find humor in politics, particularly at events like the Fringe, is seen as valuable for maintaining social harmony. Satire is not only a source of entertainment but also a tool for challenging the status quo and demanding improvement.
