@Paul

Maybe it's selection bias? If you're only going to dinner parties with upper-class people, the only leftists you will meet there are champagne socialist.

Hard border is not a problem if you're strong and agile!

I have great memories of Belfast zoo and environs when I was a kid. We hardly ever went to Dublin, it being a strange place. Until I saw the university on a school trip.

It's the cultural heritage of the Great White Hunter bringing civilisation to the Dark Continent.

Cease-ethnic-cleansing. All our countries participate in what happens in Yemen.

Well, the Democratic led House today voted to end US involvement in the Yemen war. But, you know, Trump's favorite country is Saudi Arabia, because they are run on the authoritarian family model to which he aspires. So, probably no luck.

You should lobby AIPAC to intervene in the US Senate ;-)

If Tories appreciate the phenomenon of strategic voting, they should cut out such boils from the club: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-47173445
He should be stripped off his title too, imho.
Not that I'd be cynical enough to think that FGM only becomes an issue when the opportunity arises to criticise a Tory MP, I wonder will we see the same reaction to this intervention from the same 'campaigners'?

Community leaders are now calling for an end to a "fixation" on FGM

It's not about the Tories or some community leaders. It's about mutilating children, so you can stick your cynical remarks up the sick place from which they fell out.

You have a point there.

I'm perfectly aware that it's about mutilating children, just like I'm perfectly aware that the policy decision has been made in the UK not to confront the problem,  just like I'm perfectly aware that the kind of 'campaigners' that should be howling in outrage are strangely not, just like I'm perfectly aware that once they could point the finger at the 'right' sort of opponent they turned it into front page news, just like I'm perfectly aware that we should expect nothing from those same people now but the sound of crickets.

Save your indignation for the opportunists who are only outraged when it's convenient.
