Mary Dejevsky: Macron masterclass
The Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst was the venue for this week’s UK-French summit meeting, and you can see why. It offered just the right blend of ceremony and substance for a President as sensitive to both as Emmanuel Macron. As a military establishment outside London, it also provided security sufficient for an occasion that brought together not only the two leaders, and their retinues, but – for the first time – also
 
 
Nicky Cox: Wiping out gender stereotypes is long way off
The recent media storm around the #Metoo campaign shows no sign of abating. Every week brings another story, another victim and further calls to raise awareness of gender inequality. From the BBC gender pay row to the sexual harassment cases in Hollywood, these issues are steeped in historical and outdated attitudes. But with women now speaking out and indeed, being given a platform to speak, change is being achieved and
   
Nash Riggins: Awards neatly encapsulate why Trump is not fit to lead
Let’s be clear: America isn’t some “s**thole” country. We’re the ones who invented Shark Week. We brought the world Pop-Tarts, Instagram, the happy hour – even the gif.

Those who suffered most from economic pain felt alienated and turned towards simplistic solutions and
   
Andrew Malcolm: Democrats aiming high
Every other winter, about 10 months before the next congressional elections, a batch of members decides they’ve had enough. They retire or move on to more lucrative, family-friendly jobs. Often, these departures involve members of the minority party, who have a frustrating, unpleasant Capitol Hill life lacking any real control over the legislative agenda. Sure enough, that’s happening again in the winter of 2018. But this time
 
 
Sarah T Jones: Happily delivering bundles of joy
I first looked into surrogacy about 20 years ago, purely by chance. I initially wanted to pursue egg donation – I’d finished my own family and at just 21 it felt like such a waste of my fertility. However, upon researching egg donation I realised that I would have to act anonymously. I was disappointed, as I very much wanted to know what would happen with my eggs, who they were passed on to, and details about the child that may
