    27.09.2017 • United KingdomComments Off on Catalan Independence Movement is Making Brexit Look Boring

    One thing that makes the Catalan vote so interesting is that it has already defined what the state of Catalonia would look like. Part of the referendum is about the proposed set of policies and the pre-prepared constitution, not just independence.

  • We Sent President Trump a Book

    13.04.2017 • United StatesComments Off on We Sent President Trump a Book

    In an act of high-minded desperation or cynical mischief (we’re not sure of our motive), we put together some of our writings on fake money into a special book. No, we don’t expect the president to read it. He famously doesn’t read books. And now he is

    11.04.2017 • United StatesComments Off on Trump’s Campaign Promises Blow Up in Syria

    During the campaign, Donald Trump promised a “new foreign policy.” No more trying to be the world’s policeman. No more fighting other people’s battles and making things worse. No more wasting American money and American lives on foolish, unwinnable

    Your editor hoped that, at last, he had found somewhere so remote, so desolate that no one would want to take it from him. A place where CNN wouldn’t reach, politics wouldn’t touch, so marginal that even time wouldn’t notice. We had hoped for a remote,

    28.03.2017 • United KingdomComments Off on Brexit Trigger Ushers in an Era of Political Dysfunction

    The best news about triggering Brexit is that the government will be too busy to do much else. Up to 15 bills are needed to make Brexit happen. That clogs up parliament. The government won’t be able to pile on the usual load of regulations and laws. It
