Revelation of Tesco accounting error may have done new board a favour

Description
There is a long history of companies misstating their financial position and performance, and on Monday Tesco plc became the latest with its announcement that it had overstated its half-year profit forecast by £250 million. This revelation, arising from information provided by an internal whistle-blower, resulted in an 11 per cent reduction in the supermarket giant's share price, putting the share value at an 11-year low. How can an error this large have occurred?

Podcast: "The Responsibility to Protect" and the Unreasonable Veto

Podcast: "The Responsibility to Protect" and the Unreasonable Veto
Description
The roots of the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) are to be found in the international community's attempts to navigate a route through UN Security Council (UNSC) inaction in the face of mass human rights atrocities. The likelihood of such inaction is exacerbated by the ability of UNSC Permanent members to veto actions which they oppose, but given the level of human suffering which characterises such crises, should this right of veto, unfettered by the UN Charter, be subject to some degree of constraint? Issues relating to this question are considered in 'The Responsibility to Protect and the "Unreasonable" Veto'.
