Don't put all this at riskSunday, 20 December 1998
Lord Gilmour wrote that I seem "to admire the recent foreign policy of the United States" and he imputed to me generally "extreme right-wing political and economic opinions", and offered the usual Americophobic condescensions of the more lobotomous E...
Leading Article: Peace on EarthSunday, 20 December 1998
This year, it seems that we need this seasonal hope more than ever. It is not just in Baghdad that the call to prayer competes with the thud of explosions and the crackle of gunfire. In Bethlehem, the very birthplace of Christmas, there is still litt...
For Sick Willie, Washington is worth a massacreSunday, 20 December 1998
In the mythology of the American right, Bill Clinton is the avenging devil of the 1960s, the hippie triumphant: once shaggy, now shorn, trading in his peace sign for the keys to the Oval Office. In fact, he is Lyndon Johnson redux: a maudlin cracker ...
Why I count myself a member of the Peace PartySunday, 20 December 1998
Likewise I supported the Gulf war in 1990-91 for exactly the same reason. One sovereign state had invaded another and had to be repulsed, not so much in accordance with any new world order of the 1980s as with the order which was a consequence of the...
The Agreeable World of Wallace Arnold: MI6 was eternally grateful for my encrypted columnSunday, 20 December 1998
For the next 10 years, I sent my controllers vital messages through the apparently innocent medium of my award-winning column. These would mean little to the general reader, but to the boffins at MI6 they could spell life and death. For instance, if ...
Leading Article: War and humbugSunday, 20 December 1998
Still, sexual licence, untruthfulness or abuse of language are not in themselves a reason for removing a head of state from office. Almost no one has emerged with much credit from the past year in Washington. It would be hard to say which is the most...
Bill should pickle it for posteritySunday, 20 December 1998
By some bizarre coincidence - a much more convincing one than President Clinton's decision to launch air strikes the day before an impeachment hearing was due to start in Washington - the first missile launches took place as journalists gathered for ...
Chilean scatter-guns have peppered Labour ranksSunday, 20 December 1998
I understand the dismay and frustration on the part of those who have argued that Pinochet must be punished for his crimes. It is tempting to claim that the cause of bringing an evil man to account should be more important than the detail of whether ...
Profile Dominic Lawson: Language, truth and DominicSunday, 20 December 1998
So let me start by stating categorically that the story about the 42-year-old editor of the Sunday Telegraph being an agent of MI6 is a non-starter, if only because he is too devoted an agent of his family to have time left to serve any less well-des...
North Koreans are gasping for the truth: Let's give it to them
#Teamnigella: It’s the only side to be on
The Anglican and Catholic Churches have finally realised they must change to survive. But is it too late?
