The prospect of Brexit has not yet sunk in. If Cameron is still prime minister after the British election on 7 May and then calls a referendum on leaving the EU watch out for truly scandalised Americans.

Filling the cracks in this chaos, the Islamic State has extended its reach into Libya. While Egypt has publically launched airstrikes on Libya following the mass execution of 21 Egyptians by the Islamic State, some European countries seem once again to be readying themselves for military intervention.

The lessons of our grandfathers is that in foreign policy there needs to be some very clear red line. For those of us brought up in the post war world, we need continuously to assert that for us those red lines include the boundaries of every fellow NATO state.

Poland, Hungary, the Czech republic, Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, plus the three Baltic states, are all members of NATO, as are Albania, Slovenia and Croatia. With the exception of Albania, they are all also members of the EU. It's not quite tanks on the Kremlin's lawn, but it's not far off.

The UK's Nuclear Future

Moving forward, we need to recognise the important role our nuclear deterrent plays internationally. Despite the global security environment having changed markedly since 1940, to abandon our deterrent now would only serve to undermine our own security, the security of our allies and that of liberal democracy globally.

In Kabul, there were bullets in the squash court, three in the bedroom, three near my bed, three in our bathroom, one missing the minister by six inches. The gardener has continued to drive his two donkeys about our garden with complete unconcern, but the day has come when only one donkey is left.

Why Do the Libyan Militias Run Amok?

Neil Durkin

Alright. The word amok is just a trigger here and I'm not seriously going to compare a famously dour German art film with the present state of an entire north African country. But ... well, I'll at least come back to Fassbinder & Fengler's drab masterpiece at the end of this quick run-through of Libya's current woes.

Recall Lord Hill and Boycott the EU Commission

The UK and David Cameron have everything to gain and nothing to lose from a temporary withdrawal, it would more than make up for the PM's dismal campaign to oppose Juncker and give his Eurosceptic backbenchers a bone to gnaw in the run up to May 2015. It's a no brainer really.

A World Without a Globo-Cop

Robin Lustig

I can't think of anywhere that would have been less appropriate as a venue for this week's Nato summit than the UK. A United Kingdom that within the next couple of weeks may become shatteringly disunited... Inward-looking, backward-looking, suspicious of its neighbours: everything that Nato is meant not to be. And this at a time when the world is a more dangerous place than it's been in decades. So why are Western leaders - because it's not just David Cameron - so dismally unable to confront the dangers?
