Republican bill to replace Obamacare: What you need to know


If the AHCA was exclusively a bill about Medicaid reform, we'd be jumping for joy. We can either work to improve that or repeal it and replace with something better. Even still, Republicans could eliminate the legislative filibuster (filibusters used on regular bills like the AHCA, which are not enshrined in the Constitution), but that would be a high-risk gamble that could come back to bite them.

Locals hold vigil in support of Palestinian hunger strikers

Trump insisted he is "committed" to brokering an agreement between Israelis and Palestinians that "allows both people to live, worship and thrive and prosper in peace". And a truly workable deal needs to be backed up with global support: with the United Nations still unabashedly anti-Israel, who would enforce Palestinian violations of a peace pact? For years, Palestinians have been disenchanted with Abbas's rule, but owing to his repeated cancellation of elections and long-running rule by ... Read More »

France's Marine Le Pen says far-right National Front to be relaunched

Brussels , London and Berlin were quick to congratulate Macron on Sunday. Read More »

Mexico wall demands eased as spending talks advance


It can be recalled that the Trump administration said that it would continue to pay the subsidies to insurance companies under the ACA.

Bamboozled? Beaten? Having been baited into folding on the issue of funding for the wall, is Trump now going to have to make more concessions? "I'm optimistic. Read More »

UK | Prime minister May to seek early election on June 8


Mr Corbyn gamely welcomed the Prime Minister's call, saying it would give his party the chance to offer voters "an effective alternative". So in the Tory apologist's mind the referendum votes of the electorate are frozen in time for all eternity, with no right whatever to change our minds under new circumstances (no matter how dramatic), but Theresa May should be allowed to change her mind on a whim, despite having publicly promised time and time again that she wouldn't.
