Editorial: A step forward for the judiciary

The creation of the Supreme Court was a radical change to Britain's constitutional arrangements that passed with remarkably little fuss. With its first session in October 2009, the ultimate authority of the judiciary was, for the first time, wholly divorced from all other branches of the state.

My Edinburgh: Virginia Ironside, Writer

I can't have been more than 10 when I first visited Edinburgh with my father, who'd designed the sets for a festival production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. We stayed in the Old Waverley Hotel (which is still there) on Princes Street. The whole place was granite-coloured hell. Even the counters at Jenners (which is also still there) were manned by sour-faced old Edinburgh spinsters who looked shocked if you wished to be so extravagant as to purchase anything; the town rolled up its streets at nine at night.

Dom Joly: A hit show means I can annoy people again

That's it. I've finished the marathon session of filming that's gone into making my new TV show Fool Britannia. Over the past 15 weeks or so I have travelled across the UK in order to dress up as curious characters and harass the general public. It's not what my parents would have wanted me to do, but it's a living.
