How much terrorism can the world take in 24 hours? June 26, 2015 will certainly go down in history as a day that pushed the limit. Perhaps one positive thought remains. It is said that the night is darkest just before the dawn -- I don't think our night can get any darker.

Brexit is not just a referendum. It is a momentous decision gambling with Britain's, England's, and Scotland's future. The question will linger for a long time: Was it worth it - were the nation and the people best served by this course of action?

It's not something that just afflicts people of one color or ethnicity. It's striking families who never imagined that they could find themselves telling their kids that they don't have any food or that the electricity has been shut off.

Could the UK Elections Be a Chance for Europe?

David Cameron committed in January 2013 to hold an in/out referendum about the EU by the end of 2017 if his party won an outright majority. Maybe he was not sure he would need to deliver it. Now he is forced to. Can this be turned into an opportunity for Europe to revisit some critical issues, or will the Eurocratic immobilism prevail?

Conservative Discrepancy

Conservative Republicans are trumpeting the resounding election victory of the British Conservative Party as a triumph of kindred souls. Not so fast. At least in regard to environmental policy, the two Conservative parties bear little resemblance.

The Fruits of Human Rights Hubris

Reactions to Prime Minister Cameron's plan to loosen the United Kingdom's relationship to the European Court of Human Rights have been predictably hysterical and infused with partisanship.

Activists can improve their alternative media success by embracing alternative currencies like Bitcoin. I live in Britain where I've just witnessed an entire generation of activists get their clock's cleaned by a Conservative sweep in the May 7th Parliamentary elections.

The victory hangovers have yet to wear off for my colleagues in the U.K. But my U.S. counterparts are already asking, "How can we replicate the sweeping conservative victory here, in the States?" I have the answer and I haven't been quiet about it in the least.

Sunday Roundup

This week saw the first conservative government reelected to a second term in the U.K. since Margaret Thatcher's. Returns showed David Cameron winning easily, with Labour and the Liberal Democrats losing big. But the other clear losers were the pollsters, along with anyone who believed their predictions of a virtual tie. Pollsters are not exactly on a roll. In March, polls wrongly showed a dead-heat in Israel between the Zionist Union party and Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud, which, in fact, won handily. And here at home, polls in the 2014 midterms overestimated Democrats in Senate races by four percent. As three new candidates -- Mike Huckabee, Carly Fiorina and Ben Carson -- tossed their hats into the crowded presidential ring this week, it's a good time to remind ourselves about the folly of breathless poll-obsessed political coverage. It's the people, not the polls, that matter. And focusing on the horse race at the expense of debating real issues makes losers of us all.

Nick Clegg's political hold is as relevant now as shinning a spittoon. And the stiff arm to extinction given to Ed Miliband is the quivering realisation that both politicians squandered the future of their parties.

You'd have to be a psychopath to take pleasure in some of the losses the past 12 hours have seen. Douglas Alexander, Danny Alexander and Jim Murphy, for example, didn't lose their seats because they were bad at their job. They lost their seats because Scotland is currently in the grip of a wave of hysteria.
