  • Mr Blair is guilty of playing to the gallery of popular prejudice
    Saturday, 22 June 2002

    It comes to something when France has to rescue British politicians from their follies. But this is what happened yesterday, on the first day of the European summit in Seville. A meeting originally intended to smooth out some small wrinkles about...

  • The Mayor of London has some vital questions to answer
    Saturday, 22 June 2002

    Whatever else, the 40th birthday party of the sister of Ken Livingstone's partner is no longer a purely private matter for family and friends. The Metropolitan Police are to investigate allegations about Mr Livingstone's behaviour, and in particula...

  • Amar Singh: More victims of racism lie rotting in our prisons
    Saturday, 22 June 2002

    At last, Satpal Ram is free. A man who was convicted of murder after defending himself against a racist attacker in 1986 can no longer be beaten by his guards or moved from prison to prison in the hope that his resolve will falter and he will ad...

  • Frank Furedi: The promise of choice and control
    Friday, 21 June 2002

  • Take the Church out of the Prime Minister's hands
    Friday, 21 June 2002

    So it looks as if we – the Church of England parishioners and the citizens of a country whose established church this is – are to have Dr Rowan Williams from Wales as our next Archbishop of Canterbury.Of course, his is only one of the two names ...

  • Stan Hey: She's a star, but not necessarily a pri-Madonna
    Friday, 21 June 2002

    The noise that has been going on all day has, I think, finally stopped. A high-pitched drilling sound started at breakfast time and has only just abated now, in the mid-afternoon. To keep some of the whine out I've had to have the shed door close...

  • David Blunkett was right. Our political discourse is often bonkers
    Friday, 21 June 2002

    The noise that has been going on all day has, I think, finally stopped. A high-pitched drilling sound started at breakfast time and has only just abated now, in the mid-afternoon. To keep some of the whine out I've had to have the shed door clo...
