      DO Look Back in Anger!

      by Jon Gaunt

      Yesterday's memorial for the victims of the Manchester terror attack was moving. However, I am afraid I can't bring myself to change my twitter avatar, light a candle and sing Kumbaya whilst not "looking back in Anger." Because frankly, I am angrier now about this terrorist attack than I was 12 months ago.

      Trump Sells Peace Like a Dodgy Dealer

      by Finian Cunningham

      Seriously, would you buy a second-hand car from the American president? Anybody in their right mind would scoff at the unnerving risk of being sold something liable to splutter into a heap or be repossessed.

      The Champions League Has Made European Football Too Predictable

      by Neil Clark

      This Saturday’s Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool should be a cracker. The semi-finals produced an astonishing glut of goals and given the array of attacking talent that’ll be on show in Kiev, the final is unlikely to be a soporific 0-0 draw.

      by Jon Gaunt

      The suggestion by the National Police Chiefs’ Council that the UK should arm all rural Police Officers is wrong. We actually need to arm EVERY Police Officer in the UK in the face of rising violent crime and Jihadist attacks.

      US Policy: Provocation & War

      by Finian Cunningham

      The United States, as many observers have noted, appears to be undergoing an historic process of “strategic decline”. In order to stave off deterioration in its political and economic power, the US is resorting to greater dependence on militarism and aggression.

      Iran Deal Crisis Leaves Transatlantic Alliance in Tatters

      by Ivan Danilov

      If major oil companies keep postponing the necessary investments, the next "huge supply shock" may bring the oil price up to $300 per barrel. It's not a fringe theory. It's the forecast of a legendary hedge fund manager.

      Turkish State Media Descends Into the Swamp of Incitement Over Syria

      by John Wight

      When journalism crosses the line from an analysis, even polemic, into incitement – and worse, incitement against other journalists - it marks a serious and sinister degeneration. It also says much about the morals and ethics of a media organization that would countenance publishing such material.
