Why legacy of West Indies cricket cries out for a truly stout defence 25.10.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Pulling out from their tour of India has left the Caribbean game in crisis which deserves urgent understanding and help India may decide not to tour West Indies The West Indies are often cited as everyones second favourite team in world cricket except perhaps in the Caribbean where they may currently be regarded as the least favourite team of the lot . Even in this era when West Indies have so often been emasculated they have still had the capacity to enchant fleetingly as they did in Colombo when winning the World T20 in 2012 . The current team lacks the majesty and power of the magnificent sides of the Eighties, yet in Sri Lanka two years ago they had a rollercoaster ride to the T20 final, which was ultimately mesmerising. Their campaign was unpredictable, joyous and stylish and everyone enjoyed their triumph. Yet now, with the 50-over World Cup round the corner, there is serious doubt whether West Indies will even turn up - or indeed whether the ICC will want them ...

In his anger, Cameron has made Britain a toxic brand | Jonathan Freedland 25.10.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
The prime minister rages at the EUs £1.7bn bill, but his miscalculations have lost Britain vital allies in Europe Anger suits David Cameron. Its one of the modes he does well. He is skilled at contrition his Bloody Sunday apology was the moment he became, rather than merely held the office of, prime minister but fury is his forte. The cheeks colour, the fist pounds the podium, the words turn plain and demotic. On Friday he channelled the voice of middle-aged men everywhere as they open a brown envelope to discover an unexpected demand for cash. Im not paying that bill, he said, the face puce. Its not going to happen. The sceptical will say Cameron was play-acting, that he cant really have been surprised by the European commissions demand that Britain top up its contribution by an extra £1.7bn to reflect the UKs better than realised economic performance over the past two decades and cough up by 1 December. Treasury officials have known this was in the works for months. Still, even if this was no October ...

Obama Promised a "World Without Nuclear Weapons," but May Now Spend $1 Trillion on Upgrades 24.10.2014 Truthout - All Articles
We are on the road in the historic city of Vienna, Austria, not far from the Czech Republic where President Obama gave a major address in 2009 that called for a nuclear-free world. His disarmament efforts were cited when he won the Nobel Peace Prize, but since then advocates say little progress has been made. A recent New York Times investigation found the United States is on pace to spend as much as $1 trillion over the next three decades to modernize its nuclear arsenal and facilities. This week, more than 150 countries at the United Nations signed a joint statement calling on nuclear powers to attend the third major conference on the humanitarian impact of nuclear weapons scheduled this December in Vienna. The United States has yet to attend one of the meetings. We are joined by Elena Sokova, executive director of the Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation.
