Bolsonaro is destroying the entire future of Earth in real time. We should think truly radical remedies. An international peace team? Or even an international team of firefighters? We must be really big, brave and fast, or game over. This is worse even than anything Trump’s done.

Iceland has had a free trade agreement with the EU since 1973, and has been participating in the single market since 1994. That's a far cry from the position of no dealers/hard Brexiters.

Angela Merkel: 'I did not set 30-day deadline'. "I said that what one can achieve in three or two years can also be achieved in 30 days." "It is not about 30 days. The 30 days were meant as an example to highlight the fact that we need to achieve it in a short time."

Astute Tweet. Brexit press in UK simply does not understand Merkel. She has not conceded. She has asked for Johnson’s actual plan and there isn’t one.

"To embrace slow thinking is to allow for shifts in opinion. When we’re not in a rush to reach a conclusion or take action, we’re free to explore ideas and change our minds, or just be deliberately undecided."

Absolutely sure. Works perfectly, though surprising, because it’s a regional match. They’ve always drink good village red with Epoisse and it’s excellent

So shocking. I remember a Holocaust survivor saying an early sign of what was to come was teachers failing to defend bullied Jewish pupils. History offers us a chilling warning of what can happen if these sorts of acts go unchecked.

Channel 4’s chief executive Dorothy Byrne is right to criticise fellow broadcasters for failing to call out lying politicians & ⁦⁩’s excruciating cosy fireside chat with the failed Secretary Davis made her point for her.

After three years, the propensity of London media to fall for the spin of Westminster politicians rather than hearing and reading what EU politicians and bodies actually do say continues to disappoint Brexit is as much a media and information crisis as a political crisis

Macron is right to warn of our impending vassalage to the US - a pitiless reverse colonisation. Harold Wilson became a convert to Europe after his experience over Vietnam. “Better to stand with other sovereign states in Europe than be bullied by the US”, I learn he told an aide.
