Coronation humour: props to Tescos, hope no-one lost their job

The Long, Slow Death of Global Development – American Affairs Journal. Big sweep piece arguing that previous exit strategies no longer work and no-one knows what to do next ht Irene Guijt

Naomi Hossain: ‘What has changed since the Rana Plaza factory collapse? Labor leaders tells us that work are still paid barely enough to survive but at least the ‘dark Satanic mills’ have (mostly) gone – factories are far safer than before.’

Check out the reliably excellent New Humanitarian round up of the week’s humanitarian news, including this map of the impact of the impending El Niño weather system

Time for some excellent stuff from Oxfam:

Remittances home from Indians in the UAE are now the second biggest bilateral flow after Mexicans in the US. The Economist says ‘the Emirates is evolving into a financial capital for India’

A 1972 Xerox video brilliantly predicts email, but not feminism (or Apple/Microsoft or the Internet…..)

And finally, it’s back to this coronation, as an excuse to re-up this classic discussion of the monarchy. All together now ‘Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government.’
