There is no majority within any of the parties, in parliament, or the country for any sort of Brexit - could May escape by calling an election?

Setting exam papers is in some ways the most lonesome (and under-appreciated) form of comedy

I start my classes by declaring my affiliations, background and beliefs to the extent that they touch upon the subject of the day. I offer my students a range of literature, admit which works I agree with and encourage students to disagree with me, to prove me wrong.

The message for those thinking of pursuing claims against the British government in international tribunals for losses caused by a probable hard or no-deal Brexit is clear: Find out what Toyota and Nissan got and ask for the same. Evidence of government promises added to wholesale changes brought about by Brexit could lead to hefty compensation pay-outs. Brexit could spawn a legal morass and economic disaster in more ways than you think.

Young voters have a power in this election they never had before. They can make their future. Irfan and the rest of my students can end May this June.

Many ask how can we resist the rising tide of nationalism and populism around the world? Is resistance possible when extremists pre-empt condemnation of their failures, by blaming enemies within and without? Theresa May this week declared war on Brussels and prominent Leave supporters on social media have started blaming Remainers for Brexit failures to come.

The 8th of May is a bank holiday in France. If you were a left-leaning voter, would you go vote for a 'banker', or would you go to the beach for the three day weekend? Those who are excited about their candidates turn out to vote. Le Pen, unfortunately, has a lot of excited supporters. Macron has a lot of 'anyone but Le Pen' supporters. Are you still feeling confident about a Macron win?

What would be the result of zero tariffs for our British lamp manufacturer? They would be able to import their components with ease, but their exports would hit the same costs as one faces now when trading overseas.

The Greece I grew up in was a very different place form the one you see today. I will not bore you with statistics that you can easily see elsewhere, but I can tell you this: It did not feel like Northern Europe. Things were basic, but progressing steadily during the 1980s, and despite the occasional hiccup, people got progressively richer and life was gradually becoming easier.

However, grand projects come with large bills. How is Mr Trump to pay for his Great Wall of America? Is this destined to be another white elephant infrastructure project, beloved of nationalistic leaders across the ages and around the world?

Is Mr Trump likely to act on his threats and use his Twitter feed as a blueprint for policy? It is very doubtful that this is anything other than posturing. However, Mr Trump has clearly shown us one thing: he has a very different understanding of trade relations that any other American President in living memory.

American voters, by electing Donald Trump, thought they were voting for more protection, stricter controls, a harder attitude towards Wall Street and more emphasis on the 'real' economy. Trump's transition plans will deliver precisely the opposite.
