Susan Willett: Defence expert who argued that an ethical arms policy is essential for international security

Sue Willett was an expert in the economics of defence and international defence policy. She became one of the foremost authorities on the vicious cycle of debt, underdevelopment and conflict in the developing world and called for radical action by the international community to break the cycle. Her conviction that the developed world can only bring about security if it pursues an ethical arms policy has been vindicated time and time again.

Brian Viner: The real drama in Ambridge is online

All human life is there. Love, hate, bigotry, tolerance, spite, kindness, pedantry, brevity and above all, the conviction that Ambridge is the centre of the known universe. I refer not to The Archers but to The Archers website. I have never listened to more than two consecutive minutes of The Archers, but for entertainment value, not to mention shock, hilarity and a vivid insight into the human condition, I can't believe that it holds a candle in a hayloft (if not a past storyline, then surely a future one) to the extraordinary online rants of its devotees.
