Sujatha Byravan: An unequal burden
The Paris Climate Agreement (PA) was signed in December 2015 in an attempt to limit the release and the effects from greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the atmosphere. Ahead of the meeting, various countries developed and submitted pledges or national commitments, referred to in climate parlance as Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), which are effectively the actions each country is now required to take. The Conference of the
 
 
Matt Zarb-Cousin: Labour is surging in the polls thanks to media
It’s conventional for polls to swing to the government during a general election campaign, but Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party has absolutely no respect for historical trends. Labour is up seven points in three weeks, halving the Conservative lead, with the fall-out from the proposed “dementia tax” still to be fully factored in, U-turns included. There are two reasons for this. Firstly, the public tends to only engage with politics
   
Andrew Grice: Lib Dems cling to hope
When Theresa May called the unexpected election, one party other than the Conservatives had reasons to be cheerful. The Liberal Democrats were already on an upward curve, after winning the Richmond Park by-election, which vindicated their strategy of targeting the 48 per cent who voted to Remain in the EU. Labour didn’t know which way to turn on Brexit and ended up facing both ways. In contrast, the Lib Dems had the virtue of a
 
 
Barry Gardiner: EU trade ruling a disaster for Brexit Britain
Theresa May might like to think she’s a “bloody difficult woman” but in a landmark judgement that will have major consequences for British business after Brexit, the European Court of Justice might prove a bloody sight more difficult than she. The court ruled that the EU cannot sign off on comprehensive trade deals – those which mix trade and investment in a single agreement – without obtaining ratification by each one of the EU’
   
Stephen L. Carter: The idea of special counsels is not welcome
The appointment of a special counsel is always a tragedy, in the sense that going under the surgeon’s knife is always a tragedy. Like the human body, the government should function smoothly without the need to slice and cut. The Justice Department brings in an outsider only when the public does not trust the executive branch to investigate itself. Even when, as now, there may be good reason for the mistrust, the moment is hardly
 
 
Nash Riggins: Speaking out for immigrants
There’s this horrible misconception doing the rounds that immigrating to the UK is a total piece of cake. The way populist, political automatons like Theresa May prattle on about it, you’d think British taxpayers are funding deluxe caviar baths and a complimentary passport service for known terrorists down on the beaches of Dover or something. But the truth isn’t quite so glamorous. I’m not British but I’ve spent all my adult
   
Andrew Buncombe: The only response to terror is to carry on
It was a concert by the American singer Ariana Grande. Her Twitter bio declares she is a “dangerous woman”. But in truth, a lot of her fans are teenage girls, teenage girls who get taken to her concerts by their mums or dads. On Monday night, it was these fans who had packed into a sold-out concert at the Manchester Arena, the first date of Grande’s UK tour, when what police are treating as a terror attack, left Britain reeling
