Scott Morrison scrambles to contain political mushroom cloud after Trump



The Australian press pack was hyperventilating when the US president made the suggestion Australia might be asked to join a coalition of the willing. Then collective amnesia set inIt seemed appropriate, albeit entirely surreal, to be inducted into to the vagaries of the Trumpiverse by bearing witness, in the Oval Office, to the American president suddenly raising the spectre of using nuclear weapons against Iran.Friday’s program in Washington ran like clockwork while everybody had a script.

Canadian PM unveils pledge to restrict handguns on reelection campaign trail in TorontoJustin Trudeau has tried to focus attention back on his reelection after a dramatic week in Canadian politics, in which the prime minister admitted to multiple images of him in brownface and not recalling how many times he had worn it.The embattled Trudeau spent Friday walking the streets of east Toronto, posing for photos with residents and unveiling his party’s newest campaign pledge: a move to restrict handguns, ban assault-style rifles and begin buying back military-grade weapons that were legally purchased. He made the announcement near to the site of a gun rampage last year, when Faisal Hussain shot 15 people, killing two. Continue reading…

‘Some people I will never convince’: Cameron reflects on his



After three years of silence, the former PM wants to reclaim the right to be heard on the issue that defines his premiershipTowards the end of our conversation about his new memoir, For the Record, David Cameron’s mobile rings. His daughter Nancy is on the line. She wants to know if he will be free to come and see her awarded a school prize. “I’ll be there, darling,” he assures her. “I’ve almost finished all these hideous interviews.”For the past week, and for the first time in more than three years, Cameron has barely been off the airwaves or out of the media.
