Toluse Olorunnipa: Chinks in Trump’s armour
One of the biggest supporters of President Donald Trump’s trade policies, according to the president, is the unnamed chief executive officer of a mystery company. “I was with one of the greatest companies in the world. The chief executive officer. Very short while ago. And it really affects him,” Trump said at a July 31 campaign rally in Tampa, Florida, referring to his controversial use of tariffs. “He said ‘You know what, this
Garsen Subramoney: Land takeover won’t work for South Africa’s economy
I wonder what goes through the mind of South African president Cyril Ramaphosa each morning. I imagine him sipping coffee, planning how he’s going to get the country back to work. He must shake his head, marvelling in revulsion, at the scale of the plundering that his predecessor wreaked on us. The level of their depravity, the stuff of myth and legend. The president knows all indicators show the country is facing an uphill path
John Rentoul: Will Corbyn be able to repeat his success of 2017?
The first person to call Jeremy Corbyn “magic grandpa” was probably David Quantick, the comedy writer, in September last year.

Sean O’Grady: ‘Final say’ referendum vote much likely, now
Second referendum? It’s already happening, if you care to look. It’s on now, in the frenetic debate on websites, social media, newspapers and TV. It’s happening in “mainstream media” and outside it, where anger pollutes news. It’s happening – much more than last time round – in offices and pubs. Whereas in 2016 people thought the referendum was boring and a foregone conclusion, the opposite is true today. So it’s happening now,
BRP Bhaskar: A deluge and its lessons
Exclusive to The Gulf Today Kerala, whose people, Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has graciously acknowledged as a part of the UAE’s success story, is beginning a slow process of recovery after being battered by unusually heavy rains in the past fortnight. As rivers and backwaters across the state rose, many stayed put at home, ignoring the government’s advice to move to safe areas. In many places flood
Ben Chu: When office politics dominate merit
One of the salient features of Boris Johnson’s career is just how many second chances he’s been given over the years. He fabricated a quote when he worked at The Times, a mortal sin for a journalist. He was fired, but rapidly popped up at The Telegraph as if nothing had happened. As an MP, he later brazenly lied to his party leader over an affair, got fired as a shadow minister, but was later selected as the Conservative
