"I just wonder what it would be like to be reincarnated in an animal whose species had been so reduced in numbers than it was in danger of extinction. What would be its feelings toward the human species whose population explosion had denied it somewhere to exist....

Prime Minister Liz Truss has signed up to attend the first meeting of the Emmanuel Macron-driven “European Political Community”, feared by some to be an extension of the European Union.

With a new government, the Queen’s death and now the Truss-Kwarteng mini-budget, industrial unrest has not been in the headlines much recently – but a month ago the explosion of strikes was on all our minds.
