The Lib Dems could survive in government by going back to their roots | Rafael Behr 30.7.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
The national party is toxic for campaigners on the doorstep, but the popularity of local MPs may keep them in power in 2015 To find Liberal Democrats in Eastbourne, head for the Nuthouse. This turns out not to be an unkind metaphor but the name of the pub next door to the local partys headquarters. The staff member who gives me directions warns, with weary resignation, that all the obvious jokes have been made. Besides, since joining the coalition, Lib Dems have been called a lot worse than nuts. The partys president, Tim Farron, once affectionately described his colleagues as cockroaches , by which he meant they could survive in parliamentary crevices even when attacked with nuclear ferocity. This resilience is despised by other parties. Theyre like verrucas, is how one Labour MP describes the refusal of her local Lib Dems to go ...

Ignatius: John Kerry’s big blunder in seeking an Israel-Gaza cease-fire 29.7.2014 Washington Post
Secretary of State John Kerry has made a significant mistake in how he’s pursuing a Gaza cease-fire — and it’s not surprising that he has upset both the Israelis and some moderate Palestinians. Kerry’s error has been to put so much emphasis on achieving a quick halt to the bloodshed that he has solidified the role of Hamas , the intractable, unpopular Islamist group that leads Gaza, along with the two hard-line Islamist nations that are its key supporters, Qatar and Turkey. In the process, he has undercut not simply the Israelis but also the Egyptians and the Fatah movement that runs the Palestinian Authority, all of which want to see an end to Hamas rule in ...

Yes, Britain can afford to defy Tsar Vladimir Putin 27.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
At last there may be justice for Alexander Litvinenko, but it has taken a downed passenger jet to make us see that Russia does not own Britain The British secret state has finally done the right thing by ordering a public inquiry into the poisoning of the fugitive Russian intelligence officer Alexander Litvinenko. Admittedly, in taking on Vladimir Putin, it has done the right thing for the wrong reasons and after exhausting all other options. Still, despite the warnings of the Chicken Lickens in Whitehall and the City, the sky has not fallen. Russia can be defied, it seems, and the world still turns. I thought my jaundiced eyes would never see the day. In 2013, the Foreign Office used every variety of official subterfuge to stop the public and, more disgracefully, Litvinenko's widow discovering the truth about the most sensational political assassination in years. Lured into a London hotel by two Russian agents, who slipped him polonium-210, Litvinenko was the victim of an agonisingly slow death and an ...

Promises of easier nuclear construction fall short 26.7.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
