PARIS: French customs officials said Tuesday that they had intercepted 135kg (300 pounds) of Captagon, dubbed the "jihadists' drug", at Paris's Charles de Gaulle airport this year, a first for France. Captagon, a type of amphetamine, is one of the most commonly used drugs among fighters in the Syrian war. "It is the first time that this drug has been seized in France," the customs agency said in a statement. Customs officials at Charles de Gaulle discovered 350,000 Captagon pills weighing 70kg on January 4 hidden among industrial moulds exported from Lebanon and apparently heading for the Czech Republic. An investigation was launched by German and Czech authorities "and it revealed that the real intended destination was Saudi Arabia, by passing through Turkey", the agency said. Another 67kg of the drug were found at the airport in February, hidden in steel moulds.

One photo showed cups of ice cream scattered on the blood-stained ground. Brett McGurk, the US diplomat coordinating the international coalition fighting IS, condemned the attack and expressed solidarity with Iraq. "Isis terrorists tonight in Baghdad target children & families enjoying time together at an ice cream shop. We stand w/Iraq against this evil," McGurk said on Twitter, using an alternate acronym for IS. IS overran large areas north and west of Baghdad in 2014, but Iraqi forces backed by coalition air strikes have since regained much of the territory they lost and are now fighting to retake the last jihadist-held areas in second city Mosul. But defeats on the battlefield have not prevented IS from carrying out deadly attacks targeting civilians, including a bombing in Karrada district last year that killed more than 320 people. — AFP

to get freedom from Westminster, only to become subservient to Brussels. So, which way are you thinking at the moment? That's between me and the ballot box! So, if you did vote Conservative, would this be the first time you would've voted Conservative in your life? If I do that, yes it would be, and it will be the same for many Labour voters, and many SNP voters

I voted yes for independence last time, but the referendum isn't the main reason for me to vote for the SNP. I just, personally, like the SNP. I've got to know my MPs, and locally they are more engaged than other parties. And you don't feel the Conservatives,.

the polls, things have changed dramatically since 2010 and 2015, but if you ask people the slightly different question, not who they are going to vote for but how they feel about the parties, actually the changed are much more muted. So this is the average level of liking of parties at each election and you can see that OK the Conservatives are slightly more popular than they were last time but they're not really much popular than they were in 2010 and OK Labour is slightly less popular than in 2015 but only.

this is what the shared two party vote is over the years. It's declined massively over a long period of time since the 50s when the Conservatives and Labour got more than 90% of the vote to the most recent election where they only got 70%. If it twos back up to the sort of level expected by the polls, it marks a return not quite to the levels of two-party competition that we saw in the 50s and 60s, but at least maybe to the 80s and 90s. I want to say that even.

2013 but it's been going for much longer, the British election study has run since 1964. The most recent wave was in December of last year and ideally we would have had slightly more recent data but the Prime Minister didn't give us quite enough notice unfortunately to get that out in time. So one of the interesting things about this election is whether it marks a return to.
