To be young and Scottish this summer is to be swept up in the thrall of a once-in-a-lifetime choice. My story: http://wapo.st/1qoEJgZ
To be young and Scottish this summer is to be swept up in a once-in-a-lifetime choice, as referendum looms.

In the coastal city of Mariupol, Ukrainian demonstrators retook city hall from separatists. Then local officials gave it back. My latest story in the Post:
Separatists maintain hold on government buildings in eastern Ukraine a week after a deal to end the occupations.

"We know about water. We enjoy water. We like floods, up to a point." In Britain, that point has long since passed. http://wapo.st/1kXcQbU 
Even for an island accustomed to the damp, record winter flooding has wrinkled the stiff upper lip.

Gridlock on the minimum wage isn't inevitable. At least not in Britain, where there's broad consensus to raise it. http://wapo.st/1eqxXxD

Rebels in #Donetsk won't fight city hall. So life keeps humming, despite the insurgency. My story from #Ukraine: http://wapo.st/1tNh4p4 
Donetsk has been occupied for two months by militant separatists. But the city keeps running.

My piece in WP on London's internal conflict: “At almost every level, this is a city in thrall to Russian money.” http://wapo.st/1fGFZTs 
With Moscow laughing off sanctions, Europe weighs hurting its own economy to press Russia on Crimea.

The war in Syria is a budget-airlines flight away for radicalized Europeans. The return trip is just as easy. My story in the WP: http://t.co/1ihjMSoPN6

When I landed in London last month, the reception was warm. But it's not always so for newcomers to the UK. http://wapo.st/1fa5Hpm 
A nation that was once among the world’s most accommodating has soured on newcomers.
