Thinking about Sergio's box office post yesterday, on the lackluster critical and commercial successes of this summer's movie season - one that's on its tail-end - a few things came to me, as we enter what is typically a period when the studios showcase their best work. It's maybe not much of a surprise that the summer movie release I enjoyed and appreciated the most wasn't exactly your typical summer movie: not the expected loud, action-adventure, weighed down by oodles of computer generated effects that overshadow any real character development and even coherent, engaging story. Like the sugary, fatty snacks we love to eat, that aren't necessarily good for us, but quench some immediate...

Somalia on 28 August 2014 instituted proceedings against Kenya before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) with regard to a dispute concerning maritime delimitation in the Indian Ocean.  The ICJ press release states that Somalia contends the two countries disagree about the location of the maritime boundary in the area where their maritime entitlements overlap.  Somalia asked the ICJ to determine, on the basis of international law, the complete course of the maritime boundary dividing all the maritime areas pertaining to Somalia and Kenya in the Indian Ocean.  Somalia's 17-page application with sketch maps is available on the ICJ website.

Driving this application is Kenya's designation of oil blocks in Indian Ocean waters claimed by Somalia.  It is a credit to ...

The grotesque coupling of solidarity with Palestine and anti-Jewish invective seems to have forged a politically correct form of anti-Semitism that is drowning out legitimate criticism of Israel's policies in Gaza. Why does Israel's controversial behavior, unlike that of other countries, call into question its right to exist?

In recent months, the UK government has worked closely with the Somali community on the issue of remittances.  I understand the levels of anxiety in the community, as a result of changes to banking arrangements for key Somali MSBs and the fragility of many peoples' situation in Somalia. Since coming into my new Ministerial role earlier this year, I have made sure that the government is doing what it can to ensure remittances continue to flow through accessible, secure channels from the UK to all regions in the world, including Somalia. At a number of community meetings over the last month, government officials have listened to your concerns and given you more information about the work we are doing. The issue is complex and international.  Across the world, banks have been ...
