Donald Trump orders his government to dismantle Obama’s climate change policies to boost jobs – vows to cut foreign aid during the world’s worst humanitarian crisis – and the US vows to take unilateral action against North Korea over its nuclear threat. Here in the UK Article 50 has been triggered – and Scotland wants to go it alone. And in Europe France goes to the polls – and there’s concern that a win from far right leaders Marine Le Pen would send financial markets into turmoil. And we’ll be looking at terrorism; was the attack in St. Petersburg a retaliation for Russia’s efforts against the Islamic State in Syria?
