Russia is in the throes of the coldest winter in a long while, and that, by any standard, is cold. Across Moscow, locals scuttle from A to B avoiding the huge phallic icicles which jut into the street from the spouts of drainpipes. At the doors to the metro, babushkas in headcarves and battered furs hunch against the bitter wind, begging for pennies. And, all the while, just a few paces away, Russia's super-rich are proving their impunity to these testing conditions.

Red faces after Jacob Rees-Mogg, prospective Tory MP and son of former Times editor William, had to apologise for plagiarising an article from The Sun in a constituency newsletter. There was perhaps not a little irony in reading this on the Telegraph website, which has given a new meaning to the term copy-taking. Not only have they been merrily reproducing stuff from the Daily Mail's website, but items published at midnight on The Independent's site were miraculously published eight hours later on Telegraph.co.uk. Trevor Kavanagh, who penned the cribbed Sun piece, said he was flattered by Rees-Mogg's appropriation. We know what he means.
