UK:

Prime Minister Theresa May delivered a speech on Monday which addressed the UK’s housing problem and the government’s plans for solving it. The Fultum Post contributor Oliver Stanley commented on this speech here.

Former UKIP leader Henry Bolton has formed a new political party, OneNation, which he claims will be ‘dedicated to the full independence of the UK in all areas of law, government and public administration’ following Brexit.

On Sunday, former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter were found in Salisbury, poisoned by a nerve agent. They remain in critical but stable condition and the first police officer to reach the scene is seriously ill.

Russia denies involvement, but the Kremlin remains the prime suspect and the UK Foreign Office says the country will respond ‘robustly’ if Moscow is found responsible.

US:

Our contributors have written extensively on US gun laws, here and here.

Europe:

Nigel Farage branded Jean-Claude Junker a hypocrite for condemning US President Donald Trump’s new tariffs plan, pointing out the fact the EU imposes similar tariffs on other nations around the world.

World:

Hopes that North Korea is heading towards denuclearisation increased this week as President Donald Trump announced he will be meeting Kim Jong-un for talks later this year.

The Fultum Post contributors have also written on the issue of Universal Basic Income (UBI), religious reactions to school shootings, more on American gun laws, Brexit and the Second Amendment of the US Constitution.
