· Why Is Boris Johnson Defending Dominic Cummings? →
In two decades in politics, Mr. Cummings acquired a fearsome reputation as a campaigner and disrupter, culminating in his pivotal role in the 2016 Brexit referendum that persuaded Britons to quit the European Union.
· The Johnson-Cummings scandal is pathetic to behold. Shame their colleagues didn’t listen to the advice they asked me to give them →
Johnson owes him, not least for the snappy slogans that helped him win the referendum, get rid of two prime ministers, and install himself in their stead.
· UK tells EU: Break the Brexit 'impasse' so we can do trade deal →
Cummings, a key figure in the 2016 referendum campaign to leave the EU, is now under pressure to resign over a 400km road trip he made during the coronavirus lockdown.

· Fifteen years of TV dinners: why Come Dine With Me has endured →
There was a running joke that you could have predicted how Britain was going to vote in the EU referendum by watching old episodes of the show.
· We can't keep pretending refugees and economic migrants don’t exist – it’s a recipe for a human rights crisis →

The New York Times
· Republicans Tried to Suppress the Vote in Florida. And Failed. →
“Florida voters will get to decide on a ballot referendum that would restore voting rights to felons who have done their time.” “Murderers and sex offenders are excluded.” “To pass Amendment 4, voters would need 60% or more in November.” Vote “Yes” in November to restore voting rights.
· Under-fire UK government aide Cummings has Johnson's loyalty →
In 2016, Cummings honed populist messages that helped the “leave” campaign, co-led by Johnson, win Britain's EU membership referendum.
· Populist paradox: Brexit 'led to better perception of immigrants' →
London, United Kingdom - There is a dominant narrative at play in the UK, certainly in liberal media circles and on the losing side of the 2016 European Union withdrawal referendum, that small-minded xenophobia was a major driving force behind Brexit.
