This definition of anti-Semitism has been too stretched for too long

Diary: Is George really preaching as one of Islam's converted?

George Galloway, the newly elected MP for West Bradford, has denied that he took part in a ceremony years ago to convert to Islam.

What is needed at this point in the saga, I can't help feeling, is neither a select committee nor a judicial inquiry, but family psychotherapy on an industrial scale. Take Liz Murdoch. If Liz's volcanic rage at being the biological daughter less loved by Daddy than the adopted sister with the Medusa tresses erupted with "Rebekah fucked the company", we must look to the distant past for the genesis of her filial anguish. I make no apology for repeating the anecdote, which is not only the most revealing snapshot of Rupert's soul, but may help us understand Liz's daughterly angst.

Jemima Khan: 'I'm a member of the hacked club'

For victims of the News of the World hacking scandal, not knowing the full extent of the invasion of their privacy is horrible. They include Jemima Khan, who details the long, painful process of trying to find out the truth
