  • Now that he has seen Africa, Paul O'Neill should act on aid
    Tuesday, 4 June 2002

    Paul O'Neill was back at work at the US Treasury yesterday after visiting some of the poorest countries in Africa in his bizarre 10-day double-act with Bono. He is said to be planning a period of reflection before presenting any recommendations to...

  • Amid the celebrations, it is never wise to forget Northern Ireland
    Tuesday, 4 June 2002

    Much of the country has spent the past three days cheerfully wrapped in one flag or other, enjoying the first flush of warm weather, the spectacle of the Queen's jubilee celebrations, or a breakfast-time pint while viewing the World Cup. One corner o...

  • Own goal
    Tuesday, 4 June 2002

    It is a strange perversion of the free market when fans pay black-market prices for World Cup tickets, while the team they have travelled half way round the world to support plays to a half-empty stadium. Supporters may not buy the spare tickets lega...

  • Kathy Marks: Australia marches backwards on its Aborigine rights
    Tuesday, 4 June 2002

  • Jemima Lewis: The royalism that dare not speak its name
    Monday, 3 June 2002

    One of the very few things I remember from my early childhood is the Silver Jubilee. I was just about to turn six. It was a hot, bright day and our long suburban street looked thrillingly festive, with Union Jack bunting streaming from the lamp p...

  • Our Man in Paris: The death of the family farm
    Monday, 3 June 2002
