  1. End of the post–Cold War holiday

    I remember Duck and cover (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duck_and_cover) drills in school. I also remember as I went under my small desk looking at the windows along the wall and imagining the glass breaking and flying into the room.

  2. Will Oprah Run?

    There's speculation swirling around the media today about this because of a speech she gave at an awards show last night. I watched the speech on youtube and it is quite good and well delivered. Would you vote for Ophrah Winfrey for president? In spite of her complete lack of understanding...

  6. How to generate favorable press reports

    The princess, whose father was an SS officer, denied the incident a few months later in an interview with ITV, saying: “I even pretended years ago to be an African, a half-caste African, but because of my light eyes I did not get away with it, but I dyed my hair black. “I had this adventure with...

  16. Brexit plan

    The Government wants a temporary customs union after we leave while we get ourselves sorted out. Wonderful. They've actually agreed something among themselves: Ask for absolutely everything. And keep a straight face. This far into the negotiations - which are going brilliantly, according to...

  19. Venezuela

    Is the socialist dream dead ? The mainstream media would have it that all the failures are down to the incompatibility of socialism in the modern world, and that Maduro is a dictator.

  20. Annabel Smith, head of volunteering and participation development
