John Rentoul: Struggle for Labour leadership
If on the way to the polling station in six weeks’ time you notice people wrestling with themselves, tearing out their hair and twisting their own arm behind their neck, they will be the Blairites. See if you can identify the subgroups. Some of them will be Kammites. Like Oliver Kamm, the Times leader-writer, who has decided to vote for Meg Hillier, his Labour MP, because she is a non-Corbynite who voted against Article 50.
Thom Brooks: Driving British citizens out of their own country
In order to win public confidence on immigration, the Conservative-led Coalition Government, under the then Home Secretary Theresa May, imposed a new requirement that anyone wanting to bring a spouse and any children to the UK needed to earn a minimum of £18,600 a year. The policy was designed to ensure that family members brought to the UK did not become a burden on taxpayers, labelling their partner a “sponsor” who would, by
Denis Hayes: Anti-science budget will be a disaster for America
In its approach to scientific research, President Trump’s budget can be accurately described as a mugging. I’ve watched this happen before, up close and personal. It does not end well. In 1979, President Carter set an ambitious but achievable goal to get 20 per cent of the nation’s energy from renewable sources by the year 2000.

Patrick Cockburn: Don’t treat mental health patients as criminals
The criminalisation of the mentally ill is one of the cruellest and most easily avoidable tragedies of our era.

Ward is one of seven men
Dr N. Janardhan: The ‘person’ behind foreign policy
Pondering over international political developments around the world in 2012, my article on what determines foreign policy identified four ‘Ps’ – principle, profit, power projection and prestige. While they remain relevant, US President Donald Trump’s authorisation to launch missiles against the Syrian military adds a fifth and important ‘P’ that shapes the other four – ‘person’ at the helm and, by extension, his or her personality
Chloe Farand: Gossip surrounding the Macrons is pure sexism
The fact that Emmanuel Macron met his wife Brigitte, 24 years his elder and once his teacher, in a classroom setting has shocked the British public. In fact, it’s stunned everyone – except the French. Transposing the situation to a candidate in the UK’s general election is basically impossible; it would send shockwaves throughout British politics. But as a French person, it’s the reaction that I find surprising. The Macrons’
