Media Experts

THE EXPERT VIEW THE EXPERT VIEW

Will Trump be the new Reagan for evangelicals?

WHO: Dr Emma Long

“American evangelicals would be well advised to pay less attention to Trump’s words than his actions.”

Christian evangelicals to welcome Trump into the flock

WHO: Prof Lee Marsdem

““Trump may not be an evangelical but he is a darling of the movement and addressing graduates at the world’s foremost evangelical university recognises a mutual dependence.”

Comey termination echoes dictators Trump admires

WHO: Dr Michael Frazer

“It is also disturbing how Trump has repeatedly expressed admiration for dictators who eliminate their opponents even more ruthlessly then he has.”

US air strikes on Syria risk being an empty gesture

WHO: Dr Kate Ferguson

“…without a comprehensive strategy to curtail Assad’s crimes and bring peace…a night of limited airstrikes will hang in history as an empty gesture that failed to save lives…”

EU using Gibraltar as leverage against the UK

WHO: Ms Marián Arribas-Tomé

“It appears the European Union wants to use the Gibraltar stalemate as leverage against the UK in regard to the Brexit negotiations.”

North Korea missile takes aim at East Asia dynamics

WHO: Dr Ra Mason

“The launching of missiles by North Korea, with primarily political objectives, is nothing new, but the current positions of China and Japan do make the current dynamics in East Asia potentially more fluid than they have been for some time.”

Brexit, Scotland and Northern Ireland

WHO: Dr Nikos Skoutaris

“The UK is heading slowly but surely towards a constitutional stalemate very similar to the one triggered by the Catalan independentist movement in Spain. The political developments this week mark another step towards this direction.”

Ofcom must investigate Sky bid’s plurality implications

WHO: Dr Sally Broughton Micova

“But it will be up to Ofcom to ensure that the review is thoroughly investigates the plurality implications of Sky’s position.”

Fractures rare but aerial challenges risk concussion

WHO: Dr Michael Grey

“The old heavy-ball argument often touted as the source of concussion in football is a red herring.”
