In recent years, Republican states have passed restrictive voter ID laws that they say stop electoral fraud, but which activists say discriminate and disenfranchise certain voters.

At least 16 teenagers have been stabbed to death in London this year alone - that’s more than were killed in knife attacks in all of 2020, and it’s only June.

20 years, four presidents, thousands dead, an emboldened Taliban, and women's rights far from protected. What’s changed in Afghanistan after years of international involvement? Or rather, why does it feel like nothing’s changed? President Biden has announced the withdrawal of troops by September this year, although they are already leaving in drove…
 
It’s half term. It’s nearly the summer. We all need a holiday. But should we go abroad?

Why did we allow holidays last summer without any Covid testing before flying and after? A…

We’ve been here before: Israel is bombarding Gaza, and more than two hundred people have been killed, many of them women and children.
