Front Bench: Is there anything the UK can do to respond to Russia?

  
Today's Front Bench looks at the Government's response to the poisoning of a former Russian spy in Salisbury. A sample of the email is below. If you like what you see, sign up here. Don't forget to vote in the poll and leave your reasoning in the comments below. The best responses will feature in this afternoon's Brexit Briefing. Front Bench Three days in and it's still hard to escape the story of Sergei Skripal, the former Russian spy and double agent who was poisoned with his daughter in Salisbury on Sunday. Two major developments have come to light overnight. First, investigators now believe the poison used was a nerve agent. Second, the first police officer to help the Skripals is now in a critical condition in hospital. He had been discharged, but his condition then deteriorated. Extremely critical condition That this was a nerve agent would seem to rule out anyone but a state actor – nerve agents are difficult to produce and hard to store safely. Meanwhile, The Telegraph reports that the visit of Yulia may have triggered the assassination attempt, but that last week's snow likely disrupted the hit team. An intelligence source told The Telegraph that "It now looks as though they got desperate by Sunday afternoon and decided to strike". The critically ill police officer may therefore been collateral damage from a bungled attack. The Times reports that Sergei is in an "extremely critical condition" and quotes a Whitehall source as saying "the feeling is that he is not going to make it out of this", but that "I think it could be more positive [for Yulia]. They are hopeful that she might be able to pull through." Meanwhile, there were reports last night that Sergei may still have been involved in the intelligence business in some way. Another Russian exile, Valery Morozov, told Channel 4 News that Skripal worked in cybersecurity and regularly visited the Russian embassy. And The Telegraph reports that Skripal become close to a security consultant who worked for Orbis – a company run by Christopher Steele, the former British spy who compiled a dossier on US President Donald Trump's alleged Russia ties. Little room for manoeuvre The poisoning of the officer appears to have raised the stakes for the UK. However, with sanctions already in place over the Ukraine crisis and UK-Russia relations as bad as ever, it's not clear that Downing Street has many tools left to use beyond a mass expulsion of diplomats. As Front Bench predicted yesterday, Britain's limited room for manoeuvre is already being linked to Brexit. James Landale at the BBC points out the UK will struggle to get the EU to agree to new sanctions, with attitudes on the continent softening to Russia and Brexit using up our diplomatic capital. The Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, will make an urgent statement to the Commons today, but the Government is unlikely to act unless it finds hard evidence of Russian involvement. This at least buys it some time, but if the Russian link is proved, the expectation will be there for tough response. It's not clear that Britain will be able to deliver one. Like what you read?

Beijing proposes 'marine park' for disputed South China Sea, amid tensions over military build up

  
Beijing has proposed a new national park in the South China Sea, amid simmering tensions between Asian rivals over the disputed waters. China claims nearly all the strategic sea, despite partial counter-claims from Taiwan and several south-east Asian nations including the Philippines, Brunei, Malaysia, and Vietnam. Beijing has caused alarm from its neighbours who claim it is developing its military capabilities in the region by fortifying and building infrastructure on the tiny land formations. Its proposal for a "marine park" to "further protect the region's ecology" comes after a landmark tribunal ruling in 2016 said that China's island building had caused "severe harm to the coral reef environment". The Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague also ruled that Chinese authorities were aware that "Chinese fishermen have harvested endangered sea turtles, coral and giant clams on a substantial scale." The South China Sea has been a flashpoint for tensions in recent years, with Beijing often expressing anger towards Washington over 'freedom of navigation patrols' carried out by US naval vessels in the region. Territorial confrontation in the South China Sea Chinese state media voiced displeasure earlier this week after a US aircraft carrier arrived in Vietnam for the first time since the end of the war in what was seen a symbolic show of strength between the two former foes aimed at Beijing. Britain has vowed to send a warship into the South China Sea this month, in a move which has already provoked anger from Chinese officials. Proposals for a new national park were being aired in Beijing at China's rubber stamp parliament, the National People's Congress (NPC). Wang Changren, an NPC deputy and Party chief of the Hainan Tropical Ocean University, told the Global Times: "A national park in the region can improve people's awareness of the region's importance, and the South China Sea should be a textbook for marine protection in China." Q&A | South China Sea dispute The newspaper added: "When asked whether the disputes in the South China Sea will hinder the process for a national park, Wang stressed that countries in the region should reach a consensus on the protection of marine ecology in the vast waters." In 2017, China opened a cinema in Sansha, a city it formed on Woody Island, the largest of the South China Sea's Paracel Islands, which are also claimed by Vietnam and Taiwan. The city also has a Chinese-built public library and a stadium, which has staged "various cultural activities to enrich the lives of residents", Xinhua news agency said. Additional reporting by Christine Wei......

Pacific island bones likely those of Amelia Earhart: study

  
Bones found on a remote South Pacific island that were originally believed to be those of a man may in fact be those of famed aviatrix Amelia Earhart, who disappeared in the area in 1937, according to a new study. Richard Jantz, professor emeritus of anthropology at the University of Tennessee, used modern bone measurement analysis to determine the bones were likely those of Earhart, who went missing while on a pioneering round-the-world flight with navigator Fred Noonan. The prevailing belief is that Earhart, 39, and Noonan, 44, ran out of fuel and ditched their twin-engine Lockheed Electra in the Pacific Ocean near remote Howland Island while on the third-to-last leg of their epic journey.......

Mazda Vision Coupe named Concept Car of the Year

  
A lot of the interest at major motor shows is inevitably focused on new production models about to be released by major manufacturers.
