A vicars' pension scheme could be facing a precarious future unless church chiefs face up to a potentially massive deficit. John Ralfe, an independent pension expert, claimed this week that the pension scheme for some 16,400 Church of England clergy is "the riskiest in the country in terms of asset-type".

Leading article: Occupy's valuable message

The demise of the Occupy camp outside St Paul's Cathedral was long overdue. That is not to say it should never have been there at all.
