When American troops first arrived in North Syria, kurds received them as heroes with flowers and ululation. Now terrified Kurds in Syria are throwing tomatoes and stones at departing American forces.

btw.. Trump just became the first US official to confirm the presence of 50 US nuclear bombs based in Turkey. "We're very confident" they're safe, he told reporters, via WH Pool US and Nato officials never talk about nuclear deployments abroad.

Interesting also, on reflection, that there was no foreign policy chapter in the speech. No China, no Russia, no Iran. Commonwealth got a shout out, but no serious attempt to explain UK role in the world.

There's no standing in foreign policy. I don't ever want to hear about "standing" up to China and Russia or "standing" with Hong Kong protesters. Say what your actual policy recommendations are.

Para 7 in conclusions part of your /this report says PM would be expected to resign if in that 14 day period another person demonstrated they had a majority. A failure to do so would risk the involvement of the monarchy. Mr Cummings it seems doesn’t care! Well a lot of us do!

25 years ago I received a call from Gordon Brown telling me the shocking news that John Smith had passed away. Politically, John still had so, so much to offer our country. Personally, my last conversation with him was, poignantly, on the jetty on Iona.

Replying to @AndyNetherwood @shashj
Thanks Andy. Last public 10-year projection for Nuclear Enterprise () was £51bn, including non-equipment costs (not in EP £40.9b figure). Much of £10bn Dreadnought contingency should also be added. But total = more like £60bn, not £70bn. Mea culpa.

Ben is a hero and an inspiration to so many - it’s shameful that he had to fight for a care package in the first place.

Oh and I have a new favourite chart. It shows the relative transparency of these "think tanks" like The IEA and Taxpayer's Alliance. Spoiler. "0" and red are really, really, really BAD
