    Myanmar abuses rights

    News, Editorial, Published on 15/11/2016

    » The Myanmar government in recent weeks and days has either lost the plot or lost control. There seems no possible third explanation. The two most egregious events have been a vicious and murderous military offensive in western Rakhine state and a media crackdown of a type not seen since the dreadful days of Slorc rule. Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi has gone missing on the political front, while neighbours and friends are losing faith in her government.

    Xi's not for turning? Don't be so sure

    News, Published on 05/12/2018

    » As president-for-life, China's Xi Jinping is neither bound by rules nor limited by rivals. He has upended a careful political balance by concentrating power in his own hands, and overturned a cautious approach to foreign policy, while throwing in jail anyone he views as a threat. China's most dominant leader since Mao Zedong now has 90 days to head off an all-out trade war with the US provoked, in part, by his own mercantilist policies. Can anybody convince him to make a U-turn?

    Suu Kyi's sad neglect

    News, Editorial, Published on 28/11/2016

    » It takes a unique grievance to inspire linked demonstrations across Southeast Asia and beyond. But last Friday, in half a dozen cities including Bangkok, protests occurred at the embassies of neighbour and fellow Asean member Myanmar. The focus was the recent escalation of violence against Rohingya people in the western state of Rakhine. The peaceful protesters, mostly from Muslim groups, were outraged at Myanmar's leader, Aung San Suu Kyi.


    Burkini ban is ridiculous

    News, Editorial, Published on 05/09/2016

    » The French government's decision to create an uproar over women who cover up on the country's beaches was always going to be trouble. In a way, the ban on the so-called "burkini" bathing wear is reminiscent of the equally misguided attempt by our own government to ban Islamic head wear in schools. Such state interference is not just unnecessary but divisive. The Paris government would be wise to consider the lessons learned in Thailand, accept they were wrong and abandon this poorly conceived law.
