With the Labour Party in complete turmoil, does it have any chance of regaining power by 2025? — Politics is a bit like geology. For years it can appear that nothing is happening. But the tectonic plates are ever shifting under the surface, and finally things erupt. So while Labour may be facing a number of problems at the moment, including a fall in Jeremy Corbyn's approval ratings among party members, and a leadership challenge, it is unwise to assume that anything is set in stone.

Alex Thomson: Localism has proceeded apace since 2010, but there is still much further to go — With the relentless pace of today's news cycles it is often easy to forget that a Conservative has been back in Number 10 for just six years. Labour had more than double that time at the helm, and weren't hampered by having to trim their fiscal sails. Quite the opposite, in fact.

γ-aminobutyric acid type A (GABAA) receptor subunits play a direct structural role in synaptic contact formation via their N-terminal extracellular domains — 1 UCL School of Pharmacy, United Kingdom; 2 UCL School fo Pharmacy, United Kingdom Author contributions: LEB performed the experiments, analysed the data and prepared the figures. AM performed the electrophysiological experiments. MWN produced the α1β3 and α2β3-HEK293 cell lines. JEA and LEB optimized the expression and purification of GABAAR ECDs.

These are the dangers desperate refugees face when crossing the Mediterranean — With dawn comes calm seas after days of March gales. A new, sparkling clear day in the Eastern Aegean - but also a signal. The traffickers have waited on the Turkish coast just four miles from where our rescue vessel the Topaz Responder is anchored. We are watching, waiting in the crisp, piercing dawn light.

Refugees searching for freedom get teargas-filled eviction in Calais — CALAIS, France - It was obvious by the noise that could be heard even before dawn. The low thrumming sound of diesel engines as perhaps 40 or more police minibuses lined up along the Route de Dunes, which fringes the eastern side of the migrant and refugee camp in northern France known as "the Jungle".

What we owe those in 'the Jungle' refugee camp — CALAIS, France - There may be, right now, a more weird street in Europe than Avenue Rene Careme. But somehow I doubt it. To one side, there are the quiet, detached houses of bourgeois Grande Synthe, a district of leafy Dunkirk, the town built around the ferry service to Dover, on the north coast of France.

French authorities begin to clear 'the jungle' refugee camp in Calais — CALAIS, France-"Pas de bulldozeurs! Pas de bulldozuers!" says Serge emphatically, broadcasting the official mantra from the local council to the refugees here at the refugee camp known as 'The Jungle.' He's a busy man, trying to pack the few who wish to leave, onto buses to reception centers elsewhere in France.

Escape from hell: The refugees risking everything to stowaway to Britain — CALAIS, France - You can somehow feel the tension build up around mid-afternoon in the Calais Jungle. You see young men suddenly shouting out. People start running. It's beginning. Some 6,000 refugees and migrants - most from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sudan and Eritrea -live in the makeshift camp in northwest France near the port of Calais and the tunnel that leads to the UK.

These are the reasons Syrians are making such perilous journeys — The longer you spend in Lebanon and the more you go to Syria itself, the more dangerously simplistic attitudes to that disintegrating country appear. Chief among them right now, the often bitter and polarised debate between one camp in Europe insisting those coming from Syria are welcome refugees and the other that they are unwelcome economic migrants.
