Only Brexit could inspire this cynical, lost empire vision of Commonwealth | Peter Beaumont

As its leaders meet for their biennial junket, the institution itself is floundering, used to advance a glib view of trade as the answer to poverty Surveying the paucity of mentions of the Commonwealth in British political party manifestos in 2015, Philip Murphy, the professor of British and Commonwealth history at the School of Advanced Study, identified two trends to explain what he believed was its looming irrelevance. “All in all,” he mused in an essay for the Conversation, “it is difficult to think of a single major achievement of the Commonwealth since 2010.

I use Dyson`s $400 cordless vacuum every day — and it`s 100% worth its high price tag

The Insider Picks team writes about stuff we think you`ll like. Business Insider has affiliate partnerships, so we get a share of the revenue from your purchase. Steven John The  Dyson V8 Animal Cord-Free Vacuum  is quieter and more powerful than just about any other vacuum I`ve ever used, corded or not. With a 40-minute run time when fully charged, the thing can suck up the messes from every floor in the house before it needs to be plugged in again. The vacuum clips into a wall-mounted charger and hangs inconspicuously out of the way when not in use. Does anyone need a $400 vacuum? Of course not. But you`ll never look back if you get this one. Is the  Dyson V8 Animal Cord-Free Vacuum really worth $400? No, it`s worth a good deal more than that, frankly. In my household, I think a better way to frame it might, in fact, be priceless.

Book review: Burnout, by Claire MacLeary

Claire MacLeary’s first novel, Cross Purpose – longlisted for the McIlvanney Scottish Crime Book of the Year award in 2017 – introduced us to Maggie Laird and Wilma Harcus with warm humour and sharp writing. As follow-up Burnout begins, the duo have settled into their work as private investigators – but the opening conversation of the novel immediately brings tensions: “I think my husband is trying to kill me,” Sheena Struthers tells Maggie. Maggie feels it’s a case they must take on; Wilma feels it’s a case they shouldn’t go near due to Sheena’s lack of evidence other than “a feeling”.
