Assorted Links

1. Via Dan Drezner, an interactive map showing foreign travel by the last six U.S. secretaries of state.

2. Apparently David Cameron has promised that the UK will hold an in-out referendum on Britain’s membership in the EU, if Cameron’s party remains in power after the next election. Said referendum would take place before the end of 2017. Cameron says that this would be part of a renegotiation of the EU treaty. Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister and Cameron’s coalition partner, is not impressed: “Nick Clegg says Cameron’s EU goal ‘wholly implausible.'” Chris Bertram over at Crooked Timber has some thoughts on the matter.

3. Good: Google now demanding probable-cause warrants for police to access Gmail accounts.
