UK Labour is the party for everyone…especially Greens and Tories

Next time someone tells you renewable energy is cheap, show them this graph. The full analysis, released last week, is here.

Or, to get them even angrier, send them this important post on Catallaxy Files by Professor Ian Plimer.

The Atlantic magazine next month features this outstanding 7,000 word cover story ‘The Coddling of the American Mind’ on how political correctness and ‘trigger warnings’ are a disaster for education.

Here is Roger Kimball’s review in The New York Times from 1987 of the original The Closing of the American Mind. And here is John Roskam’s take on the closing of the Australian mind from The AFR in May this year.

Looks like we were wrong when we assured you Jeremy Corbyn won’t be the next British Labour Party leader. He is currently way out in front. He’s helped by a system where anyone can pay three pounds and call themselves a ‘registered supporter‘ of the Labour Party to vote for the next leader.

Amazingly…this has not worked out as planned. I guess the Labour Party elite didn’t foresee ‘registered supporters’ including Greens and a former Tory Minister. It started to get out of hand after The Telegraph encouraged its readers to vote for Corbyn “to consign Labour to electoral oblivion“. But at least Corbyn’s good on the EU.

It’s gotten so dire for Labour that Tony Blair has begged Guardian readers ‘don’t vote for Corbyn, even if you hate me‘.

Laurence Tribe spent years as Barack Obama‚Äôs confidant. Now he is fighting against Obama’s carbon emission regulations in court. New York Magazine published a fascinating profile of him last month.

The English Premier League season started last week, read the IPA’s Peter Gregory in The Roar today on how billionaires are saving English football.

Australia is in need of workplace relations reform. The IPA’s Brett Hogan published this submission to the Royal Commission into Trade Union Governance and Corruption yesterday, calling for unions and employer bodies to be regulated like companies. You can read our media release here.

You can still RSVP for the IPA’s Brisbane launch of Greg Sheridan’s new book When We Were Young and Foolish on 24 August, and for our final Magna Carta event in Perth on 8 September. If you’re 25 or under register for our Young Members event with entrepreneur Ruslan Kogan in Melbourne on Tuesday 18 August.

Here’s what else the IPA said this week:
