Values? What Values?

At least Trump is open in his admiration of despots: Putin, Xi, Erdoğan, Sisi of Egypt and even the truly appalling Duterte of the Philippines. I suspect he would love to be able to behave as they do: locking up his opponents, ruling by decree, and governing by fear. To his credit, the US secretary of state Rex Tillerson did issue a statement paying tribute to Liu Xiaobo after his death on Thursday and calling for the release from house arrest of his wife, Liu Xia. It was the very least he could have done.

Will Trump Go To War Over North Korea?

Robin Lustig | Posted 07.07.2017 | UK Politics

The best hope now is that China, Russia, and Japan will put their heads together and devise a new proposal to put to President Kim. And the best chance they have of getting anywhere is by making sure that President Trump is kept well away from anywhere where he could do real harm. It's come to this: one ill-considered 6.30am tweet from the Trump bed chamber could tip the Korean peninsula into open war. Appallingly, we are now reduced to relying on Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping to find a way back from the brink.

Theresa May's Opportunity To Fight Tax Avoidance And Improve The Lives Of Millions of People Living in Developing Countries

Natasha Adams | Posted 05.09.2016 | UK Politics

Developing countries lose hundreds of billions of dollars every year to corporate tax avoidance. Healthcare, schools and other key public services are left starved of resources as they are deprived of tax revenues, often hitting women and girls hardest. And while tax policy can often feel remote and complex, it has real implications for millions of people living in poverty.

Benedict Rogers | Posted 02.09.2016 | UK Politics

It is time for the United Kingdom to lead the way in addressing this issue, just as Mrs May has championed tackling human trafficking. The United Kingdom, together with other allies, should call on the United Nations to establish a commission of inquiry to investigate China's forced organ harvesting - or, failing that, conduct its own investigation.

Even in Tory Heartlands Voters Have Spoken: Cameron Must Veto the NHS From TTIP

Len McCluskey | Posted 21.02.2015 | UK Politics
Len McCluskey

From Stockton South, to Rochester and Strood, voters across the political spectrum are united in the belief that it's wrong for the NHS to be part of an American trade deal. It's time for the Prime Minister to listen. Britain won't be fooled by vague assurances over the NHS. The only way to ensure our NHS is protected from this trade deal is to remove it from these talks entirely. It's time for the Prime Minister to show some backbone. Cameron must use his veto and exempt the NHS from this deal.

As they clear up the convention centre in downtown Brisbane, Australia and take down the banners and start returning the city to normal, this is the ideal time to reflect on what exactly hosting the G20 leaders meeting has meant for Australia, and moreover for the global community.

The G20 at a Crossroads

Adriano Campolina | Posted 17.01.2015 | UK
Adriano Campolina

The global financial system failed in large part because it only served rich countries - and within rich countries, it served rich people more than everyone else. In order to build a better system, we need to make the interests of those who have been excluded from our top priority. If large developing and emerging countries are to play a constructive role in this process, they must stand in solidarity with poor countries and with the poor in their own countries. To do otherwise is to condemn ourselves to a never-ending cycle of boom and bust - with the poorest continuing to suffer most.

Why We Should Allow Free Movement Between the UK and Australia

Emily Verdouw | Posted 13.11.2014 | UK Politics
Emily Verdouw

It is clear both the UK and Australia can benefit from easing movement of our citizens and are also missing out on the skills we can offer each other. Let's not weaken a bond touted as one of the strongest international relationships to exist. I implore our politicians and our experts to seriously consider the free movement and mutual recognition of qualifications put forward by the Commonwealth Exchange with the support of Boris Johnson.
