i Editor's Letter: A huge step forward in medical science, but we're not all the way there yet

The tale of the paralysed man who was able to walk again features in each of the four New Testament gospels. Jesus invited the fellow to (I paraphrase) get up and walk – and he does. Cue general amazement.

i Editor's Letter: How you can contribute to the i

Would you like to shape this newspaper’s coverage of politics? If the answer’s yes, there are now two ways to do so.

i Editor's Letter: How to punish this Freudian slip?

Sit in the corner, Welfare Minister Lord Freud. Dunce’s cone, or P45 and off to the Jobcentre Plus? I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts.

90,000 people have signed up to the Back to School campaign so far

My trip back to school was as enlightening for me as I hope it was for everyone else

If the students I met are in charge in 20 years I think we’ll be alright

i Editor's letter: Why we are going Back to School

i Editor's Letter: Mr Clegg has no intention of going anywhere

There were rumours this week in Glasgow, at the Lib Dems’ jamboree,  that Nick Clegg would dramatically resign. Cobblers. He isn’t going anywhere. In private, Mr Clegg has no illusions about the loss of support around the country. The first Liberal to hold high office since Lloyd George, he speaks candidly of the hatred levelled at him for going into Coalition and raising student fees, although is not the type to feel sorry for himself.

i Editor's Letter: Lunch with the French Prime Minister, as you do

Instead of me scattering sandwich crumbs across the i Editor’s desk,  yesterday brought an unusually glamorous engagement: lunch with the  French Prime Minister, Manuel Valls.

i Editor's Letter: There's a crackle in the Brum air

A letter from Birmingham. I’m sitting in a press room scattered with the detritus of caffeinated hacks who’ve been hard at it for a month now: Scotland’s referendum, Labour conference, war, Tory conference... Pity the Lib Dems who will meet a very tired, grumpy bunch of reporters in Glasgow next week.

i Editor's Letter: Miliband didn't say anything to challenge his own party

For my liking, he also didn't talk enough about the economy
