      The day that we thought would never come – Theresa May’s departure is finally settled, amidst tears, a few compliments and more brickbats for a failed term as prime minister. The timeline for the leadership contest appears to be: kick off June 10 with handfuls of candidates who are whittled down by Tory parliamentary MP votes to two or four, who are then put forward to the membership, who should produce a winner before the summer recess so circa mid-July. The only thing that is clear is that the initial in-house phase will be brutal with Mars in Cancer opposition Saturn on June 14th and then Mars opposition Pluto a few days later – high tension, aggravated tempers, ruthless …Keep reading »

  • India elections – strongman Modi wins

    9 Comments
    Narendra Modi, India’s populist and nationalist PM has won what appears to be a landslide in the mammoth 900 million-voter elections. He took charge in 2014 with a reputation as a decisive, business-friendly leader and disciplined administrator, with promises to help reboot the economy with his vision of an urbanised, industrialised and modernised India and stamp out corruption. Results have been mixed with joblessness at a record high, farm incomes and industrial production down and many were hit hard by his misjudged currency ban.   This election was fought with nationalist rhetoric, subtle religious polarisation and a slew of welfare programmes with national security highlighted as a vote-getter, promising to keep the Hindu-majority society safe from external and internal threats. …Keep reading »

  • Don McGahn – caught in the crossfire of a constitutional battle

    2 Comments
      The battle between Congress demanding oversight of the president’s actions and a stonewalling Trump has moved up a notch. The non-appearance of Don McGahn, former White House counsel, called to testify under subpoena about the Mueller investigation, had been directed by Trump.  House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler has promised to take legal action. McGahn had told Mueller investigators in the inquiry into Russian election meddling that he had felt pressured by the president to fire Mr Mueller. “Our subpoenas are not optional,” Mr Nadler said during his opening remarks on Tuesday. “This committee will hear Mr McGahn’s testimony even if we have to go to court.” He could be held in contempt for defying the subpoena from Congress. “We …Keep reading »
