Week 12 December – 18 December

In a week when Bashar al-Assad’s forces in Syria launched a devastating assault on Aleppo,  Theresa May was not invited to a dinner of EU leaders during a summit on Thursday, and Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox put in an £11.7 billion bid to take full control of Sky, what did Bernard Jenkin do?
