The tit-for-tat between the two countries continues, but macho political posturing will not deal with the real issues“It is easier to start a war than to end it,” Gabriel García Márquez once observed. This is true even when the skirmishes are fought over cotton hammocks, ornamental fish, motorboats and soya bean oil rather than territory. On Monday, Donald Trump ramped up his trade offensive by announcing that the US would

18 Sep 11:17am Where leaders dare: how John McDonnell survived the Mumsnet forums | Zoe Williams
The Guardian
As part of his bid for power, the shadow chancellor did a Mumsnet Q&A which somehow wasn’t a disasterIf one thing has been really noticeable over the summer, it’s that John McDonnell wants to be in power; he doesn’t want to be shadow anything for one minute longer than is necessary: his voice is marked by calm and his interventions, conciliation.

Liberalism needs to be rebuilt – just not by the Lib Dems | Rafael Behr 18 Sep 1:00am Liberalism needs to be rebuilt – just not by the Lib Dems | Rafael Behr
The Guardian
Insurgent forces of the far left and right have resulted in a hollowing-out of centre politics. But Vince Cable’s tribe is not up to filling the voidIf it is true that failure makes a great teacher, the Liberal Democrats must know a lot about British politics. Currently they are learning about Brexit by failing to capitalise on the votes of millions of remainers, despite being England’s most pro-European mainstream party. In 2016 support for EU membership was 48%, yet the Lib Dems struggle to reach double digits in opinion polls. That reflects another failure: at a time when Jeremy Corbyn has taken Labour radically to the left, and Theresa May’s agenda is dictated by the fanatical right, there must be room for a party of mainstream moderation.
