  • The political leadership of Britain has good cause for wanting to keep Scotland in the UK. As I have argued before, it is not only Scotland that will be diminished and made vulnerable by a vote for independence, the rump United Kingdom (UK) will also be reduced in stature as an economic and military power. In turn, a shrunken UK will have a less legitimate claim to its current occupancy of a permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council, and as an influential member of the Executive Organs of international financial institutions such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. Even with the European Union and the Commonwealth of Nations, the UK's position will be undermined. For instance, in the Commonwealth, the UK, without Scotland, will become a smaller economy than India.

  • Collective action is really helpful to combat diseases like chikungunya and dengue. Please let us all inspect our properties and remove any stagnant waters where mosquito larvae can develop, including not only well-known sites such as puddles, ponds, plant saucers and tyres but small areas such as corners of drains and gutters that do not run off completely. One issue of concern is the empty residences in the neighbourhood where such breeding sites can develop unchecked. Any suggestions to address the risk posed by these sites would be welcome.
