'People do worse things,' says politician who slashed tyres of disabled pensioner

Italian politicians have a formidable to-do list, with surging unemployment, a shrinking economy and rampant corruption to contend with. But their biggest problem, many Italians would argue, lies in their inability to apologise, let alone quit, when they find themselves in disgrace.

Jaguar's back on the racing track with E-type heir

A rapt crowd at the Musée Rodin in central Paris saw Jaguar unveil the long-awaited F-type model last night — the luxury motoring giant's first sports car since it brought out the E-type more than five decades ago. The event featured a performance by Lana Del Rey, who dedicated a new song, "Burning Desire", to the F-type.

David Wilkins: Essence of a Jaguar, but no slavish copying

There has never been anything quite like Jaguar's E-Type. Enzo Ferrari, a fierce rival, famously called it the most beautiful car ever made but that sort of success can easily become a burden and Jaguar has always avoided describing any of its later models as a true replacement for its most famous car – until now, that is.

Rosdhu Queen reigns on sad parade after clouds gather over Gosden's brilliant run

After the sun king, the deluge. Those privileged to be here for the first day of the meeting will attest that the Knavesmire has rarely, if ever, taken the imprint of a greater thoroughbred than Frankel. Yesterday, however, they experienced an obverse of the sport's glories. Both big races were run in a downpour, while darker clouds still extinguished the dazzling promise of Newfangled.

Anthony Hilton: Games' golden chance for small business

One of the Government's smarter moves this week was to use the Olympics as a reason to invite the world's business leaders to London. Lancaster House has been turned into what's known as the British Business Embassy and is going to stage 14 business-to-business summits. Never has there been such an organised campaign to encourage inward investment.

The Week in Books: Will the BRICS make our books? Slowly, global publishing turns a new page

Maybe it's a remnant from an encyclopaedia-browsing childhood (or just early exposure to the Guinness Book of Records), but I still love chunky illustrated reference books – a taste for bulky blocks of print incompatible with the price per square foot of property anywhere in southern England. Earlier this year, I bought Dorling Kindersley's wonderful History Year by Year – nugget after shiny nugget of the human past over the millennia, all the way from the Great Rift Valley in Kenya to Silicon Valley in California. Checking the credits page, I found that the smart design work on this multi-handed monument of editing came from India, where publishers now often outsource not just routine office functions but almost every skilled task. DK began to operate in India even before the reference giant was swallowed by Penguin in 2000.
