For months I sat in the room with them to watch their evidence at Lord Saville’s inquiry. And while Lionel Shriver is right that the sight of terrorists benefiting from an immunity denied to our soldiers is grotesque, there are competing qualms. Not only because British soldiers should be held to a higher standard than terrorists. But because, having watched all of the Bloody Sunday shooters testify, I can say with certainty that they include not only unapologetic killers, but unrelenting liars. As one soldier after another appeared before Lord Saville, it became clear that the soldiers of 1 Para were intent on spurning this last effort to get to the truth of what happened that day. Almost without exception they stonewalled, sticking to the testimony they had given … [Read more...] about The case for prosecuting Bloody Sunday ‘Soldier F’

And it seems that going to study in higher education is not always the be all and end all for youngsters after they have finished schooling in the Isle of Man. That was the impression during the latest in the series of Topical Talks, sponsored by Manx Telecom, at Isle of Man Newspapers.

Jess Bauldry: What prompted you to set up this Kitchen Table Conversation? Dana Moldoveanu: We wanted to introduce new activities that add another layer to our objectives, which relates to getting our community more involved and having more influence in society (in Luxembourg or in general). Then, the idea of Lisa, our event moderator appeared. The members of our association have good relationships with other women’s associations from Luxembourg. This is how Lisa knew about Avris. She and a few other people had the idea to apply for a grant from Olai, through the campaign “Je peux voter”, aimed at encouraging foreign residents of Luxembourg to register to vote in the EU parliamentary elections. She thought the project might be interesting for our asbl, and invited us to become part of the team. The project proposed was more complex, involving other tools and ways of increasing awareness regarding the importance of voting in elections like these, as well as … [Read more...] about What would you vote for?
Parul Ghosh shares her best Helsingborg travel tips. Photo: Private Every week one of The Local's readers takes over our Instagram account. Today Parul Ghosh from India shows us her Helsingborg. How old are you and what do you normally spend your days doing? I'm 31 and I usually spend my days at Mindpark, a co-working space working on some project or other. There are a number of events that take place through the week in the city so I try to go for as many as I can and meet new people in order to get out of my blanket and my comfort zone. When and why did you move to your city? I moved to Sweden in the summer of 2017 after my husband got a job here in Helsingborg. It was quite a nerve-racking decision to move bag and baggage, but definitely a good one! While these pictures show road signs, this post is about much more than that. For me, these signs signify a lot about life in Sweden. I used to … [Read more...] about #MySweden: ‘Helsingborg is the perfect mix of a city and a town’
Ivan Rogers 23 January 2019 1:23 PM 23 January 2019 1:23 PM Share Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Email Whatsapp This is a transcript of a lecture Sir Ivan Rogers delivered at UCL European Institute I was asked to talk for about an hour on where Brexit came from and where it may take us. I will try and cover both, including in answering questions later, but if I may, given the intense political crisis, I want to focus primarily on where we now are, and why we are there, and then look again at what our real options are. We desperately need clear and honest thinking about our choices not just for the weeks but for the years, indeed decades, ahead. I continue to think that our political debate is bedevilled by what, at the time I resigned, I termed “muddled thinking”, and by fantasies and delusions as to what our options really are in the world as it is. As opposed to several different worlds people on different sides of the debate would prefer to … [Read more...] about Where did Brexit come from and where is it going to take the UK?
