Thomas Nash | Posted 17.09.2015 | UK
Thomas Nash

The UK's attempt to justify its refusal to condemn cluster munition use on the basis of article 21 was not founded in legal analysis, but in political desperation. Although the UK argued that the language of the Dubrovnik outcome documents should be changed, states parties to the ban treaty rightly rejected the UK's objection and collectively issued an emphatic condemnation of use.

This London Fashion Week, We're Uniting the Realms of Fashion and Technology

My team and myself can't slack off for a moment - unless of course it's to tend to my gorgeous French bulldog Peggy who can often be found distracting everyone around the building. (She knows she's the real boss around here!) So, yes, it's all a bit manic but it's rather fun manic.
