1 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

The Aukus pact is not a “new global order” (17 September) but very much an old order; it is colonial gunboats. I do not expect politicians to have read history such as the first Anglo-Afghan war of 1839, but I do expe...

Johnson’s reshuffle puts power over principle

10 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

Boris Johnson has long yearned to be the modern-day Winston Churchill, famed for his oratory and leadership just as his hero was during and after the second world war. But leadership takes both courage and conviction,...

Universal credit cut is a cruel blow for the poor

19 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

Your editorial (14 September) is correct in highlighting the link between access to affordable social housing and childcare as a determining factor in childhood poverty. But with its focus on the imminent removal of t...

‘Cruel’ legal change affects children in care

It’s time for those who benefited from a housing boom to pay up

29 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

I have some sympathy with my fellow pensioners saying that they have already paid their whack. But there are two major caveats to that (Briewe, 6 September). Eerste, contributions to the state pension in the 1960s and...
