Kim Sengupta: Time of the dodgy dossier
Boris Johnson declares that “there is something in the smug, sarcastic response that we’ve heard from the Russians that indicate their fundamental guilt.” Gavin Williamson’s considered response to the crisis is that Russia “should go away and shut up.” There is, of course, more than Boris’s cunning deductions from Kremlin sarcasm and Williamson’s marching order to Vladimir Putin — surely one of the most unintentionally comic turns
Stein Ringen: We are being let down by America, even European Union
In Beijing sits Xi Jinping, the Red Emperor. His project is to make totalitarianism work. Already in complete control at home, his global influence increases by the day. Other nations are falling over each other to pay tribute to the People’s Republic. Beijing does not impose its political model on others, but demands something else: silence.

James Moore: Society shouldn’t underestimate ‘special’ people
Professor Stephen Hawking had a beautiful mind. It was a mind that not only enhanced humanity’s understanding of the universe, but was also capable of explaining it in a way the teeming mass of humanity could understand.

I’m not talking about words you swipe out of the medical, scientific or anachronism bin to win at “Scrabble” or ones you employ only to beat your rivals when playing “Words With Friends” on the computer. I’m talking about discovering a word that opened a door, showed you a new colour or helped you understand that an emotion, experience or idea
V Nagarajan: Norms for transfer of land in case original documents are lost
I own a plot of land and planning to transfer to my son in India. I could not produce the original documents as I lost them sometime ago but retained a copy. The registration authorities are insisting on production of original documents. Please advice. Sreedhar, Dubai. The production of original documents is necessary to avoid malpractices and other issues involved in the registration of property. To begin with, you should lodge
Marlene Zuk: Biology shouldn’t be used to justify inequality
The saying “You can’t fight City Hall” captures the immovable nature of government bureaucracy. A recent barrage of supposedly expert opinion would have you believe that when it comes to gender inequality, City Hall is nothing compared with our own biology: women and men, it’s said, are powerless against innate sex differences. A paper in the journal Psychological Science compared 67 countries and found a paradox: the more gender
