Kazakhstan - Question (11 Jan 2022)

On 2 January, there were demonstrations in Kazakhstan; President Tokayev responded positively and took appropriate measures to rectify the situation. He also made some political changes.

Assisted Dying Bill [HL] - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (22 Oct 2021)

Lord Sheikh: My Lords, I start by saying that I am totally opposed to the Bill and completely opposed to the principle of assisted suicide.

With the United States, we have spent a total of $2.3 trillion. This sum shows...

I noticed that they had emotions and felt pain, and I shall give one example. When my...
