    Ian Murray: Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise: we can withdraw article 50

    Brexit means Brexit. Article 50 is irrevocable. There can be no turning back. Our car is headed for the cliff-edge, and the brake lines have been cut. That is what the Brexit extremists want us to believe. But they are wrong. Legally, practically and democratically they are wrong. Let’s start with the legal argument.

    Christian Wolmar: Driverless cars not the solution to political and social problems

    Philip Hammond clearly thought twice before jumping into a driverless car on the day before his Budget. The headlines about a “driverless government” would have been all too obvious but he should think more, too, about the very concept and whether it is either feasible or desirable. There is a tendency for the latest technology to be touted as the way of saving the country from disaster and being the key to the next economic revolution. The introduction of driverless […]
