At least one medical practice in West London has reintroduced social distancing to reduce the risk of patients contracting Monkeypox. This, in spite of the fact that there are only nine cases so far in the U.K.

Simon Kuper's book about how a small group of 'Tory Toffs' who were at Oxford in the 1980s masterminded the Brexit project to reclaim their aristocratic birthright is highly entertaining, but not convincing.

You might think that if you debunk patently silly extreme weather claims, the entire fear agenda will go away. Think again. Climate change is now firmly embedded in the culture wars surrounding race, identity and gender.

Why didn't the US back Zelensky? The New York Times wrote earlier this year that his government could be overthrown by far-right groups if he ?agrees to a peace deal that in their minds gives too much to Moscow?.

I would really recommend the events in Inistioge - the 2008 event was well run, a lovely spot, and an interesting series of meetings, etc.

But, one change on the programme outlined above.

Paul Preston is unable to attend, and has been replaced by Prof. Emmet O'Connor, a well known labour historian at Magee College, Derry, who has written on the Irish in the SCW. He is also the son of Peter O'Connor, one of the Irish Brigadiers.
