An interesting read on the demise of the Tory Party
at 11:55 14 Jun 2019

The intellectual shallowness of the party for the last two decades is even more stark when set out like this.

" As John Stuart Mill well knew, the Conservative Party was never truly “the stupid party”. Yet what was once an insult has become an aspiration. It may yet prove the party’s epitaph."

Jonathan Woodgate is Boro Manager
at 10:49 14 Jun 2019

Seems like a classic reaction against Pulis, pick someone fans will take to instantly. It'll be interesting to see how he does given one of the larger budgets in the division and an owner keen for a quick promotion.

Clearly governments need to do more to stop extremism funding
at 09:54 31 May 2019

Given the draconian clampdown on sending money to counties with large Muslim populations over the last 15 years then it is clearly a question of political will.

This decision from Trump to impose tariffs on Mexico
at 09:22 31 May 2019

Just after the conclusion of the USMCA trade deal.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/may/30/trump-mexico-tariffs-migration

Are we still going to get a great trade deal post-Brexit then?

Interesting take on British sports journalism from an American perspective
at 14:01 29 May 2019

Particularly the practice of embargoing stories, for weeks it seems. The part I find most staggering is that this is just press conference guff, the sort of stuff that no sensible fan would over-analyse constantly. Ah....
