People in Russia are at the mercy of the state-controlled media. People in the West needn't be. If this is the new Cold War, then the West would do well to remember what had helped it to bring down the Berlin Wall and diffuse tensions at the end of the last century.

The Good News About UK Expats' Rights In The EU Ignored

In addition, nationals of 88 non-EU countries (including Russia) working in the EU are accorded the same rights as EU citizens by agreements between these countries and the EU. Why can't Britain become the 89th such country? As far as I am aware, this possibility has never been raised by anyone in the UK. And, once again, these are agreements with the EU as a whole, not with individual EU member-states.

Theresa, Stop Using EU Citizens As Bargaining Chips! British Expats In The EU Are NOT In Danger

Dr Michael Arnheim

Dear Theresa - You suffered a humiliating defeat in the House of Lords on 1 March 2017 on the rights of EU citizens after Brexit. But you still stubbornly refuse to accept this.

I was standing alone at the edge of the Darvaza Gas Crater, central Turkmenistan, which is also known as the 'Door to Hell' - a very fitting accolade.

Phil Jones | Posted 20.02.2017 | UK Politics
Phil Jones

We really are in a 'through the looking glass' phase of national and international politics with a dangerous growth of 'the enemy of my enemy is my friend' dogma.

Emma Rosen | Posted 24.01.2017 | UK Politics
Emma Rosen

Buzzfeed's decision flies in the face of journalistic ethics, standards and tradition and is against everything that many in the industry stand for. This explains the mass denouncement of the editorial choice over the unsubstantiated publication by virtually every major news organisation. In practically any other circumstances they would be right to do so.
