  32.   <description><![CDATA[On Saturday evening I saw a suggestion that the Conservatives were about to launch a policy of national service for 18 year olds. Someone had posted it on Facebook and my quick read of it led me to think it was a spoof. I knew the Conservatives were desperate but I didn't think they were that desperate. It was only after it appeared as a news story on Sky News that I realised it was not a spoof]]></description>

  38.   <description><![CDATA[Janan Ganesh argues that the Tories' greatest disservice to the UK has been to misunderstand the US: "A bilateral trade deal with Washington was meant to offset the loss of unfettered access to the EU market. That no such deal emerged was bad enough (though as predictable as sunrise). But then Donald Trump and later Joe Biden embraced a wider protectionism. World trade is fragmenting as a result. So for Britain, double jeopardy: no agreement with the US, but also less and less prospect of agreements with third countries." "This week's official government report into the atrocities of Alderney suggests ...]]></description>

Yesterday came news that Iain Dale gave up his LBC radio show to stand as the Conservative candidate for Tunbridge Wells. Today came this from Adam Bienkov on Byline Times: Departing LBC Presenter Iain Dale, who announced this week that he is quitting the station in an attempt to stand as the Conservative party's candidate for Tunbridge Wells, previously told listeners to his podcast that he "never liked the place" and "would happily live somewhere else".

  55.   <link></link>
  56.   <description><![CDATA[In a recent announcement, Conservative leader Rishi Sunak and Labour leader Keir Starmer have agreed to participate in a head-to-head televised debate on ITV. While it's always good to be able to get that prime-time real estate during an election campaign, that reaches a wider audience and encourages healthy exercise in democratic engagement, the lack of mention of third-party participation from such a debate is not just an oversight; it is a deliberate slight against democratic diversity and civic participation. It's like organizing a dance-off and only inviting two dancers - talk about a political two-step with no room for ...]]></description>

  68.   <description><![CDATA[Why are babies born young? This sounds like an odd question. People would say "of course babies are born young". However, this goes to the core of the question of human (or animal) development. Why is it that as time passes people develop initially through puberty and then for women through menopause and more generally getting diseases such as sarcopenia, osteoporosis, diabetes and cancer,]]></description>

Lord West told the paper that Rishi Sunak's proposal to enforce national service for teenagers is "hare-brained" and would only serve to deplete Britain's defence capabilities. He added that the Tories' general election plan showed Mr Sunak did not understand the level of danger the UK currently faces: In their first major policy pledge since Mr ...]]></description>
