The unexpected Conservative election victory of 2015 transformed British politics. Now an unprecedented Electoral Commission investigation has raised the question of whether it was even a fair fight. A few hours after dawn on 8 May 2015, the morning after his unexpected victory in the general election , David Cameron delivered a celebratory speech to the jubilant staff of Conservative campaign headquarters, at 4 Matthew Parker Street, Westminster. “I’m not an old man but I remember casting a vote in 1987 and that was a great victory,” he said. “I remember 2010, achieving that dream of getting Labour out and getting the Tories back in, and that was amazing. But I think this is the sweetest victory of them all.” The assembled Tory campaign staffers cheered and whistled as Cameron declared: “We are on the brink of something so exciting.” The election result would indeed change British politics, although not in the way that Cameron intended: the obliteration of the ConservativesLiberal Democrat coalition partners cleared the way for the referendum that set Britain on a path to leave the EU and ended Cameron’s political career.

The conspiracy-minded might conclude that Comey is a Pence supporter, and has cleverly maneuvered Pence into a position where he has a shot at the presidency if Trump is forced out over the Russia scandal. I am not among the conspiracy-minded, and would need to have proof before entertaining any allegations that Comey is deliberately interfering in domestic politics and engineering individuals into power. In fact, I can’t make any sense of his actions at all. Why taint Clinton with nothing investigation that went nowhere? Why protect the Trump campaign by keeping knowledge of the Russia investigation from the public? Why drag the Russia investigation on from last July till now (surely the transcripts and emails either provide evidence or they do not)? On the face of it, it seems most likely of all that the hard line Tea Party Congress managed to coerce him into this behavior.

To be fair, Trump doesnt really have a North Korea policy yet. Tillerson stressed repeatedly that a comprehensive policy review is underway and that the purpose of his trip to Asia was to hear out the North’s neighbors. How much he was able to do that is questionable. South Korea has only an interim government these days, since its president was forced out of office because of a scandal. China, North Korea’s economic lifeline, has a longstanding dialogue-based agenda that Washington is familiar with but has never shown much interest in. On the other hand, Tillerson did raise some eyebrows with a few tough-sounding warnings. While in Seoul, he said “everything was on the table,” including military intervention or even a pre-emptive strike if tougher sanctions or other diplomatic measures fail to achieve Washington’s goals. Tone matters Some policy experts in the U.

"Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information, which is the lowest level of classification." The group notes that despite Directive 732, the Office of National Intelligence announced in September 2016 that no intelligence damage assessment into Clinton's practices would happen. Judicial Watch has tried on numerous occasions to gather information regarding why there was no damage assessment report, the group announced in its press release. "The Obama administration conspired with Hillary Clinton regarding her emails, so it is no surprise that Obama officials wouldn't want to hold her to account for her mishandling of classified materials," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said. "This lawsuit is an opportunity for the Trump administration to get back to basics on the Clinton email scandal and find out what damage was done to our national security as a result of her illicit email practices.

Deputy editor John McIlroy thinks its about time Volkswagen published real-world economy figures 2017-03-22 17:55 The Volkswagen Group has been through the mill over the past two years, but as it reported at its annual press conference last week, record sales of 10.3 million cars in 2016 suggest that it is bouncing back after Dieselgate . I was in the audience as the VW board congratulated itself on the firm’s spectacular recovery – although the fact that the bill for the scandal has now reached almost 20 million euros (and counting) must still sting a little. When the men in suits opened the floor to questions, I asked VW Group boss Matthias Müller if he felt the company’s brands should be following PSA Peugeot Citroen ’s lead in publishing real-world fuel economy figures for their cars. • VW emissions scandal latest VW’s French rival issued more realistic data on around 1,000 cars a couple of weeks back, with figures produced using a test called the Real Driving Emissions standard.
