We assess the results from the UK’s local elections yesterday, especially those in Scotland, asking what they mean for the future of the union. Also, Sino-Australian relations continue to deteriorate as Beijing announces that it is suspending economic dialogue with Canberra. Then, we unpick the escalating fishing dispute between the Channel Island of Jersey and its much larger neighbour, France. Plus: Monocle’s Latin America correspondent reports on the Mexico City disaster and Andrew Mueller tells us what we learned.
