President Trump  in the UK President Trump is in the UK this week and is receiving a mixed reception – as I wrote in this article there is a great deal of hypocrisy about this.  It’s somewhat hypocritical for those who lauded President Macron of France for welcoming President Trump for them to then turn round and complain about Prime Minister May doing so on a … Continue reading LED 27 – President Trump in the UK; The Supreme Court; The World Cup and the EU; Diversity and Identity Politics; President Duterte; Thai Joy; Professor Carlos Frenk
