UPDATE, DECEMBER 21: A further discussion with BBC Coventry and Warwickshire on Tuesday afternoon:
ORIGINAL ENTRY: I spoke with Monocle 24’s The Globalist on Tuesday morning to assess a hectic 24 hours of news.
The discussion begins with Monday night’s vehicle attack in Berlin that killed 12 people and wounded dozens: does it mean the political downfall of Chancellor Angela Merkel and the surge of the anti-immigration hard right?
We move to Monday’s assassination of the Russian Ambassador to Turkey: will it break the recent cooperation between Ankara and Moscow over Syria?
And finally there’s a review of the Electoral College vote confirming Donald Trump’s victory in the US Presidential election: was all the fuss about nothing?
