And on top of that, there's the precedent set for future trade deals. Next trade deal with Israel? You can be sure Labour will want a "genocide" clause in there, which will be triggered the minute they next get hold of the keys to Number 10.
Simply put a clause that allows either party to impose sanctions, following a proper process, and leave it at that. Otherwise you'll have to add yet another paragraph for each Newspeak crime dreamed up by the people who think Nineteen Eighty-Four is an instruction manual.
And so it came to pass that the Fourth Estate lost it's impartiality and objectiveness. Why bother presenting a balanced and well-researched piece of information, with a light dusting of genuinely expert analysis, when having Christine Bleakley and Nihal screeching in Iain Dale's face gets better ratings?

My wife's school provided a wealth of resources for children, including videos, phone calls, interactive sessions and written activities, but if parents refuse to get their children to engage with it, there's nothing that can be done.

Of course, this could have been avoided by funding universities through a graduate tax, but instead we've got this toxic mix of handing out taxpayers money, leading to questions of usefulness during hard times, and asking poorer students to take on mountains of unaffordable debt. Cancelling the "wrong sort of courses" is the inevitable result.
Of course, hoping for Marr to actually ask an informed question, or expecting a Russian ambassador to answer one, is a fruitless endeavour
