By John RevillZURICH(Reuters) - The Swiss vote on Sunday on a proposal to give Switzerland's laws clear priority over international law - a move supporters say would reinforce its sovereignty but which critics claim would deeply damage its ties with the rest of the world.gi The "Swiss law, not foreign judges" measure calls for a provision to be added to the national constitution giving it explicit precedence over international agreements.Where there is a clash between the two, Switzerland would have to update its international obligations so they complied with its constitution.

After racking up 1,000s of miles across Europe over the past decade and in honour of Alejandro Valverde finally getting his hands on a rainbow jersey in Innsbruck last month, Telegraph Sport has highlighted three Spanish islands that 1000s of British cyclists flock to each winter and shared with you its experiences of riding on them. Over the past few years early-season training has been done in Tenerife or Gran Canaria, this year though, as temperatures dipped, Majorca was the destination of choice.

Jeff Johnson and Tim Walz know where to focus their attention in the closing days of their 2018 campaign. Thanks to polling results — and their own conversations with voters throughout the state — the two governor candidates are well aware that health care is the top issue on voters’ minds. “This is the most-important issue in this election,” said Republican Johnson during a recent press conference on the issue. “No matter where we travel, it is the No. 1 issue that comes up. Nothing is even close. People are scared to death about their insurance in this state.” “This should be the issue that unites us,” DFL nominee Walz said at a health-care focused event at which he joined 2nd Congressional District candidate Angie Craig. “I want to say it until I’m blue in the face; it’s always about people. If we bring it back to people and their lives then we’re gonna find solutions.” Polling has shown that the … [Read more...] about In final days of Minnesota governor’s race, a focus on three issues: health care, health care and health care
