We will be re-running the Foreign Affairs Select Committee Chairman’s piece for us above each day this week.

Daniel Hannan: The rule of law is our system’s foundation. Which is why there should be Bloody Sunday trials.
When we bend the rules in our favour, we cheapen our country. We become, in effect, the colonial power that the IRA accuse us of being.
Also: May pledges no hard border on visit to Ulster; Williamson plans to compensate troops for SNP tax hikes; Welsh Assembly to rebrand; and more.
As May squares up to one security challenge, Cameron reminds us of another: Islamist extremism – and its wider dimensions.
In Washington, the former Prime Minister ponders how his approach to tackling non-violent as well as violent extremism can be built on.
Also: Sturgeon follows May to offer ‘relaunch’ of government; separatist MPs join Soubry’s Continuity Remain caucus.
There is no foreign policy that could appease the likes of the Manchester terrorists. Islamists damn us if we intervene, and damn us if we don’t.
Their call for a border poll at least three times since June’s referendum result betrays a lack of confidence that such an event could ever happen.
Also: IRA victims calls Corbyn out; Welsh UKIP chief backs Farage; DUP elect first female leader; Carmichael takes police advice after death threat; and more.
Ernst Stavro Blofeld – if he existed – would no doubt have raised an expensive glass of schnapps to Comrade Corbyn, from the avuncular gloom of his volcano base.
Also: Ofcom deem UKIP a ‘major party’ in Wales; Murphy’s ratings slump as he fails to stop Labour collapse; and Crabb denies that Wales is underfunded.
Also: Cameron prepared to resign over UK breakup; Welsh Tories attack council secrecy, and Adams to stand again to lead Sinn Fein.
Also: Boston archive faces lawsuits after Adams’ arrest; Scottish whisky risks ‘trade war’ over plain packs; and Theresa Villiers breaks new ground for Ulster Tories.
…a deal with DUP? The Guardian floats one today – as Mel Stride did recently on this site.
Also: On the attack or the defensive, Labour’s attempts to distract from it’s record in Wales put country before party, undermining the Union to attack the Tories.
Whether he was or wasn’t involved in the murder of Jean McConville, justice must take its course.
