Dublin is on the stronger side in demanding a settlement of the border question before EU trade talks can beginIn the run-up to the next month’s critical EU summit, when the 27 heads of government will decide whether to move to talks on the future relationship between the EU and Britain, Ireland has assumed centre stage. This should come as no surprise to anyone in the UK, as successive Irish governments have been telling them since David Cameron first mooted a Brexit referendum in 2013. Brexit threatens Ireland’s core geopolitical and geoeconomic interests. The taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, has in recent weeks become much more assertive in his insistence that the UK government addresses the border problem before trade talks can begin. This has earned him the ire of the British tabloid press and of the DUP leader, Arlene Foster, whose party holds the balance of power in Westminster but who warned Varadkar not to “play around with” Northern Ireland. The leak of an internal Irish government document in which the British approach to Brexit was described as “chaotic” won’t have reduced the tensions.

Bilbao on the prairie: why does tiny Saskatoon need an $85m art gallery?8h Bilbao on the prairie: why does tiny Saskatoon need an $85m art gallery?
Saskatoon’s awe-inspiring new Remai gallery has vast ambitions. But does the overspend and hype about indigenous art justify all the bluster? ‘This isn’t just a gallery, it’s an act of making a city,” says Bruce Kuwabara, founding partner of KPMB Architects, at the opening of the Remai Modern, a vast glass-and-steel art museum in Saskatoon. The C$84.6m (£51m) project would be a major event for any city, let alone a small university town of 250,000 in the wheat-filled Canadian prairies. Saskatoon is on the cusp of something. It’s the third fastest growing city in Canada, has one of the country’s youngest demographics and its economy is growing (though not as fast as it was). The latter fact is thanks in great part to an oil and gas industry that, controversially, is charged some of the lowest tax rates in the world and has helped create more than 8,000 millionaires in the province of Saskatchewan. The Remai Modern – four horizontal cantilevered volumes in a raised position by the South Saskatchewan river – is also the recipient of one of the biggest philanthropic arts donations in Canadian history.
