[NEWS] Seven links, from British politics to minimum wages to the dead to non-robotic future

  • The Independent notes a denial that Scotland’s Conservatives will split from the national party. I wonder, thought, if Scotland’s political spectrum is going to shift, like Québec’s, from a left-right split to a separatist-unionist one?
  • Owen Jones argues in The Guardian that the rampant prejudices of the DUP, including its homophobia, make it an unsuitable coalition partner.
  • Andray Domise argues in MacLean’s that a perceived need to fit in means that immigrants can be too ready to dismiss local racisms.
  • Fast Company lets us know that the minimum wage increases in Seattle have not led to higher retail prices.
  • CBC notes the death of Sam Panopoulous, the Canadian man who invented Hawaiian pizza.
  • Adam West, the first man to play Batman on the screen, has died. We all, not just the fandom, are the poorer for his passing.
