Editorial: Not such a tourist idyll after all

Quite apart from the principle of capital punishment, which we utterly reject, the death sentence passed by an Indonesian court on a British cocaine-smuggler in Bali looks excessive on at least two counts. First, it seems out of all proportion to the 20-year prison term received by the bomb-maker for the 2002 Bali nightclub atrocity in which more than 200 people died, and second, it is of quite a different order from the 15-year term requested by the prosecution. An appeal is to be launched, but we hope there is some way that the Indonesian judiciary can commute the sentence sooner.

I find it very hard being a working mother Not being a mother, but being a working mother. But I love working and I love being a mum. I'm the kind of person who will still do the things that others might get someone else to do: I want my kids to see me putting the breakfast on the table and doing their laundry. So I do tire myself out that way.
