The Student Debt Sentence: The British Election

The reform to higher education in England, which among other things tripled annual university tuition fees, sparked mass protests in 2010. In the lead up to the general election on May 7, only 0.3 percent of the policy debates dealt with the contentious issue of higher education.

VICE News follows students who feel let down by those in power and are once again taking to the streets and occupying their campuses. They are taking direct action against the new loan-backed fees system, which they fear is a ticking debt bomb, and their universities being turned into profit-driven corporations, rather than places to expand the mind.

Will Britain Bring Back the Hunt? – The British Election

Just weeks before the UK’s general election, Prime Minister David Cameron pledged that if re-elected, he would work to overturn the 2004 Hunting Act, which made it illegal to hunt wild animals with large packs of hounds. With that, Conservative Party leader Cameron thrust the issue of hunting onto Britain’s election agenda — kicking up a heated debate that can seem to pitch rich against poor, tradition against modernity, and city against countryside. Labour, the main opposition party has in turn vowed to defend the hunting ban.

On both sides of the line, activists now speak of a reignited “class war.” VICE News traveled across the British countryside, meeting with hunters, activists, balaclava-clad “hunt saboteurs,” and everyday Brits who say that urban politicians just don’t get their country way of life.

The Fight for the Muslim Vote: The British Election

Ahead of the UK general election on May 7, VICE News explores voter apathy within the British Muslim community and finds out if issues such as the country’s counterterrorism policy and Islamophobia are pushing young Muslims into disenfranchisement.

In the 2010 general election, a lower percentage of British Muslims voted than any other religious group. Despite being the fastest growing religion in the UK and boasting more young adherents than any other religion, it appears young Muslims are becoming more and more dissatisfied with the government.

VICE News speaks with Islamists who are rejecting voting and British society, those trying to get Muslims to vote, and those trying to win those votes. We meet with young Muslims to hear their opinions on the election and explore what influences them at a time when they are facing numerous challenges.

Who Would Migrants Vote For? – The British Election

British politics hasn’t been this concerned with immigration for decades. As the general election looms, UKIP, a controversial right-wing political party, is predicted to woo one in 10 voters due to its uncompromising anti-immigration policy — which includes only accepting Christian refugees. Even the left-leaning Labour party has made controls on immigration a central point of its manifesto.

For more than 10 years, Calais, a port town in the north of France, has been a stop off point for migrants and refugees seeking a better life in the UK. Surviving in shantytowns and squats, they risk their lives scrambling onto moving trucks in an effort to get into Britain illegally.

VICE News travelled to Calais to see what life is like in this limbo overlooking the English Channel — and find out who the migrants and refugees would vote for if they could participate in the election.

The British Election (Series Trailer)

The United Kingdom will hold its general election on May 7, deciding which party, or parties, will form the next government. But until then, the mudslinging between the political groups continues as they jostle for both the media and the public’s attention.

While the party leaders are managed by slick spin-doctors and broadcast carefully constructed messages, there is a growing disillusionment with the current state of British politics.

But even as the general public’s attention dwindles, groups of committed students, activists, and concerned citizens from a variety of backgrounds are pushing to make their mark.

In our week-long election series, VICE News ventures beyond the political party machine — from the movement against cuts to education to the right to freedom of expression for young Muslims, and from the migrants caught in limbo in France to class war in the English countryside.

Anti-Islamists Demonstrate in Britain: Hate in Europe

Founded in Germany in 2014, the far-right, anti-Islamic movement Pegida — which stands for “Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West” — has since spread throughout western Europe

On February 28, VICE News traveled to Newcastle in northeast England for the inaugural demonstration of spinoff organization Pegida UK. Demonstration organizers told VICE News that they were mobilizing against the imminent rise of Sharia in Britain — and that they feared a future in which British women were forced to wear burkas on British streets.
