Tom Sutcliffe: Will time ease the pain of the Holocaust?

When, I wonder, will the Holocaust no longer hurt? Today, Holocaust Memorial Day, might not be thought to be the most tactful date on which to put this question – which assumes, in its phrasing, that such a state of affairs will eventually come about. Today, after all, is dedicated to postponing such a state of affairs, a day which exists because of the belief that remembering (and hurting) shouldn't have an expiry date.

V. P. Singh: Prime Minister of India who tried to improve the lot of the poor

If good intentions rather than hard results were the legacy of politicians, V.P. Singh might have been judged differently. As it transpired, the man who came to power championing the rights of India's poor and promising reform of some of the most inequitable elements of its society ran into widespread opposition from vested interests.

The Feral Beast: What happened to name and shame?

Uh oh – gremlins at work at 'The Guardian'. Hugh Muir's diary last week referred to a certain "Mahatma Ghandi", only for the Corrections and Clarifications column to correct the mistake a few days later (it's Gandhi). All well and good. Except that on the previous page of that day's paper, Dame Polly Toynbee, of all people, was calling him "Ghandi" again. This led to another correction the following day, but curiously on this occasion the precise whereabouts of the mis-spelling was left rather vague, as "elsewhere in the paper". Poor Hugh – why didn't they spare his blushes too?
