    News, John Lloyd, Published on 14/01/2019

    » Britain is moving towards an exit from the European Union on March 29, possibly with no agreement, and thus courting – according to the Bank of England – an 8 percent drop in GDP and a 7.5% rise in unemployment. A drear prospect, attended by matching drear commentaries on the stupidity of the 52 percent of the British electorate who voted for Brexit in 2016.

    Modern world leaders are just walking cliches

    News, Leonid Bershidsky, Published on 30/07/2019

    » One of the most striking things about Boris Johnson, who became UK prime minister, is how precisely he fits the stereotype of the eccentric upper-class Brit.

    Leaks aren't always good for politics or journalism

    News, Published on 19/10/2016

    » Editor's note: This column contains language that some readers may find offensive Both journalism and politics now live in the leak culture, and both professions will be forever changed by it.
