  • Gourmet feud
    Friday, 26 July 2002

    Not since the chief executive of The Times launched a series of articles to complain about the cheeses in a London restaurant have we had such a row between publisher and chef as Gordon Ramsay's spat with the AA. The subject of the broken crockery...

  • An accessible rostrum for athletes with disabilities
    Friday, 26 July 2002

    Some changes in public attitudes sneak up upon us. One day we look up and find that the world has changed in a subtle but important way. The opening of the Commonwealth Games in Manchester is one such moment. Only a few years ago it would have been...

  • An unwieldy body - and now there are questions over its independence
    Friday, 26 July 2002

    It has not been a good start for the new simplified, unified and dynamic way of regulating the changing business of modern communications. The creation of a single super-regulator was questionable enough. The new Ofcom will decide everything from how...

  • Abdula Kalam: The vision that will ignite a billion souls
    Friday, 26 July 2002

    While I assume the office of the President of Republic of India with humility, and gratefully recognising the immense trust the people of the country and the political system have reposed in me, I promise to endeavour to fulfill the aspirations of ou...

  • Mr Blair is buying time - which is precisely what the peace process needs
    Thursday, 25 July 2002

    Thursday, 25 July 2002

    Britain is not equipped to defend itself against an 11 September-style attack, says the Commons Defence Committee. The Government believes the balance of its security structures are right, replied Tony Blair in Prime Minister's Questions yesterday. N...

  • You don't banish our blues with one lilac jacket
    Thursday, 25 July 2002

    Women are, of course, fascinated by appearances. So all that is needed to win them – us – over is the right look. Something a little brighter, something a little younger. That belief must have propelled the careful arrangement of the photographs ...

  • Rod Eddington: There is a great future for UK civil aviation
    Thursday, 25 July 2002

    As you would expect, the issue of aviation infrastructure in the UK is close to my heart. I welcome the Government's consultation on new UK airport development options. The recognition that it gives to the role of a competitive UK aviation industry ...

  • Tim Luckhurst: Frankly, France has become a model for Britain
    Thursday, 25 July 2002

    There are, among the proud denizens of Blighty, some who are unmoved by plummeting markets, collapsing blue chips and frenzied currency exchanges. They are the Europhobes, those pre-modern paranoids whose philosophy dare not admit that global financi...

  • Ron Dearing: Education should be the prisoner's key to freedom
    Thursday, 25 July 2002

    Late July and the chance to get away from it all! That thought brought home the reality of prison. Of course, the wrong-doer has to get his comeuppance. And some people clearly need to be kept inside for the safety of the rest of us. But I find mysel...
