In a rush, a couple of things...

A crazy week at work, but two things to highlight that I will return to.

First, Iceland has recognised Palestine today. The hoopla at the UN in September, followed by Palestine's accession to UNESCO seems long ago now, but here is tangible evidence that the process continues, state-by-state.

Second piece to return to is the failure of the cluster bomb talks. This is very depressing, as it is clearly what is seen to be perfect being the enemy of a ban that would have made a real difference. I'll write more about this at the weekend.
