The red light on Cameron’s dashboard won’t go out until he helps with repairs 23.11.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
The PM has taken an us-and-them approach to problems in the world economy. But the UK is a key participant in the system

The interest rate cut in China that came at the end of last week could be another red warning light flashing on David Cameron’s global economy “dashboard”. Or the cheaper cost of credit in Beijing could provide a much-needed boost for the world’s second-largest economy following months of slowing output.

Likewise, a snap election in Japan, called by prime minister Shinzo Abe during the week, could illustrate panic in the world’s third-largest economy after two decades of stagnation, or be a sensible way to prepare the ground for a second and decisive stage of his Abenomics.

Climate change is not just about science – it’s about the future we want to create 23.11.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Climate scientist Chris Rapley and his co-author of the acclaimed play 2071 explain why the 2015 Paris climate summit cannot be allowed to fail – for all our sakes • Six steps world leaders must agree to take to protect Earth Next December, 196 nations will meet in Paris to agree a course of action to respond to climate change. They will do so under the auspices of the UN framework convention on climate change. This is an international treaty negotiated at the Earth summit in Rio in 1992 with the objective to “stabilise greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that will prevent dangerous human interference with the climate system”. The discussions in Paris in 2015 will be informed by the latest climate science. In our play 2071 , which recently completed its inaugural run at the Royal Court theatre in London, directed by Katie Mitchell, we explore the science, its implications and the options before us. A key aim is to leave the audience better placed to participate in the public ...

India must engage with its neighbours in a way that war doesn't remain a 'necessary option'- Ajit Doval 22.11.2014 DNA: Opinion
National Security Advisor Ajit Doval on Saturday said India must engage with its neighbours--China and Pakistan--and build deterrence capabilities in a way that war does not remain a "necessary option". At the same time, Doval called for a preparedness for a "two-front war". Doval said there are different types of issues with all the neighbouring countries barring Bhutan and the country will have to prepare itself in view of the neighbourhood settings. The former Chief of Intelligence Bureau said Pakistan has been using terrorism as part of state policy as they feel that they will be able to carry out this asymetric warfare for an indefinite period at a nominal cost. "We have got two neighbours. Both of them are nuclear powers. Both of them do not have very representative democratic government. Both of them have got a strategic relationship which is very very deep and both have got an adversarial view of ours," he said. He said India is engaging with both the neighbours and lot of ground has been made ...

Powerful United States pro-Israel lobby holds fire as Iran deadline looms 21.11.2014 DNA: Mumbai
As the United States and other powers negotiate down to the wire on a nuclear deal with Iran, one voice has been unusually quiet - the main pro-Israel lobby in Washington. Israel deeply distrusts the attempt to reach a deal at talks in Vienna that would lift harsh international sanctions on Iran in return for limits to its nuclear program, aimed at preventing it from developing an atomic bomb. But its staunchest US supporters, represented by the powerful American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC, lobbying group, have been holding back. They failed earlier this year in a full-scale push for further sanctions that the White House said would have derailed the talks. With growing signs that Monday's deadline for an Iran deal may be extended, AIPAC is looking past these talks and weighing how to respond to the outcome amid a changing political environment in Washington. "There's nothing to lobby for ... until we see what's addressed in Vienna," said a source close to AIPAC. "But after that, the ...
