Analysis: His security council presentation didn’t directly lead to the Iraq invasion – but it was a turning point in US-UN relationsColin Powell will be most remembered for the act he most regretted, his 2003 presentation to the UN security council laying out US evidence of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, which turned out not to exist.It did not directly lead to the Iraq invasion because George W Bush was going to invade anyway, and the presentation did not succeed in its goal of persuading the council to pass a second resolution backing military action against Iraq.

Enough chewing the fat, UK politicians: we must stop eating so much red meat | Marco Springmann
British diets are as bad as ever, so policymakers must find ways to reduce harm to our health and the planetIt was reported this month that meat consumption in the UK has decreased by 17% over the past decade, and even Prince Charles has urged people to stop eating meat and dairy products on certain days of the week. Although still considered a contentious subject by policymakers and the public, there is strong scientific consensus that high meat consumption is extremely harmful to us and the environment. What could be seen as welcome news should really be taken as a call to action for decisive policymaking that prioritises the health of British citizens and the planet.Despite the headlines, British diets are as bad as ever.
