*Vox Political’s web host went down for several hours between Friday and Saturday (December 9-10), meaning I could not write a number of stories and am now labouring to catch up. For that reason, any comment on current news stories is likely to be short, and as to-the-point as possible.

Hopefully normal service will resume soon.
