Arts and Entertainment The true face of England and Englishness? PJ Harvey performs in Auckland, New Zealand in 2013

Yes, the programme skewed to the left but, no, it wasn’t tosh

Christina Patterson: It's Miliband, not Clarke, who should be ashamed

It must be quite hard to lead a party that's in the doldrums, and which has just performed appallingly in local elections at a time when you might expect it to perform rather well. It must be quite hard to have to stand every week at a despatch box opposite a man who seems to have more charisma than you. It must be quite hard to have people going on and on about your adenoids. But although it must be quite hard, and although you must be very keen to make political points when you can, and although you must have your aides scanning the media for opportunities to make them, it's nothing less than disgraceful for Ed Miliband to have called yesterday for the sacking of Ken Clarke.

Yasmin Alibhai-Brown: We need new codes to define the perimeters of free speech

Those who say the battle is between freedom and suppression, understand neither. It is so much more complicated than that

Leading article: Secrets and lies

It was always just a matter of time before someone in the new media with sufficient bravado or determination decided to try his luck against the tide of "super-injunctions" – the bans on disclosure whose very existence must be kept under wraps. What is expensive forbidden territory for newspapers and broadcasters is harder to define, and much harder to guard, in today's new social media, where there is a ready answer to every question – you just don't know whether that answer is true.

A WikiLeaks job interview: Julian will see you now...

WikiLeaks might be the world's biggest threat to government secrecy, but its HR department needs some work. Aled John goes for a job interview with Mr Assange

A new jail for Bradley Manning – but the controversy rages on

Private Bradley Manning left his tiny cell in a United States Marine Corps prison for a long-term military detention centre in Kansas yesterday, as the Pentagon tried to cut short a deepening controversy that was turning into a stain on the reputation of Barack Obama's administration.

Assange case set for July

Julian Assange, founder of the whistleblowing website WikiLeaks, has been given a date for his appeal against extradition to Sweden, where he faces claims of sexual assault.

Kerstin Rodgers: 'All those no-salt cooks – have you tasted their food? Dreary'

My earliest food memory... Suddenly having this thing about fried eggs when I was about four, and getting my mum to cook me one, which I loved so much. But then after that she made me a couple more fried eggs and I tried them and said, "I don't like them any more." I was quite a fussy kid! My mum was a good cook but also quite experimental, and it didn't always work out – she had a phase of making Japanese soup which tasted like dishwater.

It's good to get out of the house, Assange tells Cambridge Union

He has perfected the art of spilling other people's secrets, but Julian Assange's appearance last night at the Cambridge Union Society (CUS) was a far from transparent affair.

Anonymous publishes BofA emails

Anonymous, the internet hacking group sympathetic to WikiLeaks, has revealed internal Bank of America (BofA) email correspondence purporting to show employees of a subsidiary, Balboa Insurance, discussing removing documents from files relating to homes insured by the company.

Twitter must give user info in WikiLeaks investigation

A federal magistrate ruled yesterday that prosecutors can demand Twitter account information of certain users in their criminal probe into the disclosure of classified documents on WikiLeaks.

Diary: The Broads love Julian

Passing what Julian Assange supposedly describes as his "masculinity test" sounds tough, but Vaughan Smith, former soldier and founder of the Frontline Club, is one of a handful of Assange associates to have done so. (Ian Hislop, Daniel Domscheit-Berg and The New York Times all appear to have failed.)

Assange fights his extradition

Lawyers for Julian Assange have lodged papers at the High Court for an appeal against the ruling that he should be extradited to Sweden to face sex offence charges.

Wikileaks, By David Leigh and Luke Harding

The opening is classic journalism-as-book: "Glimpsed in the half-light of a London evening... she emerged cautiously." The "she" is Julian Assange in a wig. "At more than 6ft tall, he was never going to be a very convincing female."

Assange lawyers launch extradition appeal bid

Lawyers for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange have lodged papers at the High Court for an appeal against a ruling that he should be extradited to Sweden to face sex offence charges.
