David Usborne: The power game
Democrats have been walking on air for a few days now. Actually, since last Tuesday. First Donald Trump actually managed to insinuate that one of their senators — Kirsten Gillibrand, of New York — was a w***e. Then, later that same day, the man he had endorsed to win the special Senate election race in Alabama, Roy Moore, went down in flames against his Democrat opponent. Well, OK, so the Gillibrand Twitter posting wasn’t
 
 
Mark Steel: I’m so proud of hard Brexiteers’ response to the Tory rebellion
One of the reasons we have to leave the EU is that we have a different culture from the one in Europe. For example, we pride ourselves on good sportsmanship, and if we lose, we shake hands and bear no grudge. This is why, when a few Tory MPs voted against the Government this week, meaning a future Brexit deal has to be put to Parliament, the Brexit leaders accepted it with good grace — their only comment being to put photos of
   
Hamish McRae: By 2030, our relationship with Europe will be repaired
Sometimes it is easier to see what might happen in the future if you look 10 or 20 years ahead, rather than 10 or 20 months. That is because the noise of politics drowns out the long-term economic and social forces that shape the relationship that countries have with each other. Politicians come and go.

John Rentoul: Why I failed to see the Corbyn surge in 2017
It is that time of the year to look back and learn. If you learn from your mistakes, my biggest mistake of 2017 was the failure to grasp the scale of the Corbyn surge in the election. That is why I have this headline pinned to my computer screen: “Why I don’t believe the YouGov model predicting a hung parliament.” It is an article I wrote nine days before polling day, and I think about it a lot. It makes me feel better,
   
Michael Jansen: The opposition’s pipedream
The eighth round of UN-mediated talks aimed at reaching a political settlement to end the nearly seven-year war in Syria never got off the ground because before representatives of the government and opposition arrived in Geneva, the latter proclaimed President Bashar Al Assad had to stand down before the beginning of transition from his regime to a post-war regime. From the outset of efforts to bring an end to the conflict,
 
 
Gina Miller: I’m more than happy to trust the public
Wednesday’s vote to give Parliament a much greater say in leaving the EU, supported by 11 rebelling Tory MPs, poses a dilemma for Theresa May. It’s not the outcome she hoped for, but it is a belated reassertion by MPs of the primacy of parliamentary democracy. Many of us have been troubled by the acute irony of Brexiteers parading their belief that withdrawal would mean a repatriation of powers to Westminster and, yet, they have
