The answer, according to New York representative Elise Stefanik’s Thursday schedule, is to sit for interviews with one former Trump adviser recently arrested on a boat for fraud and another who had a warrant out for his arrest for gun charges in Hungary while working in the presidential transition team. Stefanik’s conversations with Steve Bannon and Seb Gorka on Thursday seemed fairly tepid — discussing “constitutional issues” and “election integrity” — but the forums in which she did so reveal how she is working the right flank of the party to succeed Liz Cheney as the next House Republican conference chairwoman. Though Cheney has long promoted the GOP’s authoritarian drift , her decision not to bow to Trump’s electoral conspiracies has left her at the top of a caucus that does not want her there.

Despite a large margin of victory in Madrid’s local election, the Spanish Popular Party (PP) could not secure a majority, with speculation it will need the help of populist party VOX to govern. The centre-right PP candidate Isabel Díaz Ayuso led her party to huge gains in the Madrid election, more than doubling the party’s seats, but only managing to secure 65 of the 136 seats in the Madrid assembly, just short of a majority. The election was a big defeat for the leftist Socialist Workers’ Party (SPOE), which lost 13 seats. It was also a complete disaster for the liberal Citizens party, which lost all 26 of its seats. Spanish populist party VOX, meanwhile, increased its presence in the Madrid assembly, picking up an extra seat and finishing in fourth place. Some, including the BBC, have theorised that VOX could enter the next Madrid government, calling the prediction a “real possibility”. There is also speculation that the PP could simply require VOX votes to pass … [Read more...] about Centre-Right May Have to Govern with Populists After Madrid Election Victory

Wearing earbuds at work used to be a bit of a rare occurrence. After all, if you worked in an open-concept office space (remember those?), you needed to be able to hear if a colleague asked you a question, and you’d never have them in your ears during a meeting.

Australian pace spearhead Pat Cummins believes if hosting the ICC T20 World Cup amidst raging COVID-19 pandemic is a “drain on Indian resources” or is “unsafe”, it would be prudent to shift it to the United Arab Emirates. The postponement of Indian Premier League after multiple cases of COVID-19 inside the bio-bubble has led to a big question-mark on whether the marquee ICC event should be held in India where a third wave is expected around that time. “If it’s going to be a drain on resources or it’s not going to be safe, then I don’t think it’s right to play it over here. That’s the first question which needs to be answered,” Cummins was quoted as saying by the ‘Age’ newspaper. Cummins said cricket authorities should check with Indian government and do what’s best. “It probably too early to say. It’s six months away.

Cummins feels hindsight … [Read more...] about T20 World Cup: Don’t Host it in India if it’s Not Safe, Says Pat Cummins
