The Tories’ legendary survival instinct then switched in. They ditched their leader, elected a new leader with kerb appeal and did a deal with the EU that all Remainers had pronounced impossible.
In its decision for the case Oregon v. Arreola-Botello, the Oregon Supreme Court placed restraints on cops taking such actions during traffic stops, stating that “an officer is limited to investigatory inquiries that are reasonably related to the purpose of the traffic stop or that have an independent constitutional justification."
Even if a ‘deep and comprehensive’ deal could reduce these by say one-third, the economic impact would be tiny: prices of exports worth 13% of UK GDP might perhaps be 1 to 1.5% lower, so even if the price elasticity of demand for these exports was 2, they might rise 2-3% and UK GDP might be 0.3-0.4% higher. This is very small beer.
The multipolar and multilateral world order memes are also a fraud. China, Russia, Europe and other nations are demanding an alternative to the dollar, but if that alternative ends up being a digitized version of the SDR basket under the IMF's control as these countries have suggested, then this means total global centralization, not decentralization.
The ‘witty slogans’ and Enid Blyton-esque picnic lunches beloved of those who marched for a People’s Vote are, on the face of it, harmless enough.

Freeland’s role in Canada has never had much to do with Canada, as much as it has with Canada’s role as a geopolitical chess piece in a turbulent and changing world and her current role as Deputy Prime Minister as well as Minister for Intergovernmental Affairs can only be understood in those global terms.
Cold Storage is a chain of grocery stores. Well that does not quite do it justice. Imagine your favourite Waitrose, add some Harrods and Fortnums and you are close. The chain, majority British owned, has stores throughout S.E. Asia and is spreading to China too.
Since Inspector General Horowitz has no purview or authority to investigate the CIA, he will (and has) punt that issue to Prosecutor John Durham. Therefore, a conclusion that the FBI was not dispatching known FBI confidential human sources to spy on the Tump campaign is not proof that no spying occurred.
