Hunting the World's Most Wanted People Smuggler

There is no rule of law and much of the state infrastructure is crumbling with government employees complaining about not being paid. And it's here in Tripoli where the Italian investigators traced Ghermay to, where they believe he's living and from where he manages his multi-national human trafficking business. And it's here he will carry on operating, safe in the knowledge he can't and won't be caught - no matter the protestations and political pledges to crack down on the gangs and the networks. Because Libya is anarchic and that means the smugglers can operate with impunity.

The sun may be shining now, but unless the roof is fixed, the storm clouds on the horizon remain ominous. This is an opportunity for Britain to lead by example, work with its European partners, and make the case for a more competitive, flexible Europe for all of its citizens. The alternative is continued national, regional, and global stagnation, if not outright decline.

A Deal for Greece May Have Been Reached, but It Is Germany Who Should Be Humble

John Bird | Posted 14.07.2015 | UK Politics
John Bird

Germany is in an invidious position. It outstrips its fellow Europeans. It knows how to run a successful economy at a time when most European economies are lame and dependent on high levels of government support. It knows and demonstrates that hard work and fiscal maturity rewards all. Unfortunately it does not understand its own history and the history of Europe. It does not understand that the Germanic grabbing of Europe in two world wars has screwed with the economies and cultures of Europe.

One thing is clear, that Alexis Tspiras must stand firm in sweeping waters and against the rising tide. Historians will often say that European man is Greek in provenance. As citizens of Europe we know that Syriza is making decisions in constrained space and time, and that they should be proud -- whatever the outcome -- that they have sought to represent a demographic that extends beyond Greece and touches the heart of Europe.

The upcoming EU referendum in the UK is considered to be almost exclusively an issue for the political Right. It is automatically assumed that left-wing voters and thinkers will vote to stay in. This is not the case. I'm a left-wing voter and I will be voting to leave the EU.
