In this interview, eminent defence analyst and director, Society for Policy Studies, C. Uday Bhaskar tells Sridhar Kumaraswami why the stakes are so high for all players in this region.

Tasked with banging on the House of Commons door to summon MPs to the Queen's Speech, Black Rod plays a key role in the opening of British parliament following an election.

The former director of the Wimbledon tennis championships, Clarke will take up the role of managing political players in January after "Gentleman Usher" David Leakey steps down. Clarke said she was "both deeply honoured and delighted" to be offered the post.
