8th June 2021 7

As the rule of law collapses around us in the West with anonymous accusers behind curtains, the suppression of evidence, political stunt trials and rapacious lawyers, Leonardo Palma examines the Roman Lex, the basis of our civilisation.  A couple of years ago, I was working on my senior thesis at King’s College London.

France, our natural enemy?

3rd June 2021 6

“She’s my best friend, and I hate her!” There, expressed in playground language, is the schizophrenic relationship between England and France.
