Rupert Cornwell: She's in, but Democrats can't help worrying she won't winSunday, 21 January 2007
Name recognition, money and a proven ability to raise lots more of it make her the clear front-runner on the Democratic side. In her six years as junior Senator for New York, she has moved carefully to shed her liberal image, taking centrist position...
Geoffrey Lean: Is this why Blair is staying on?Sunday, 21 January 2007
Not Iraq, of course. Nor his increasingly frustrated attempts to revitalise public services. Nor even, sad to say, debt relief and African poverty. But the issue he has described as "long term, the most important we face" - global warming. The Prime ...
Leading article: Oh Brother, where art thou?Sunday, 21 January 2007
Despite the fact that Big Brother is a manipulated, ratings-chasing programme; despite the fact that putting a well-mannered Indian actress in a human zoo with ill-disciplined young Brits is a crass idea; despite all that, the programme and the resul...
Leading article: A public glimpse of private attitudes that should jolt us out of complacencySaturday, 20 January 2007
But they also did something else more interesting and, in the national context, no less significant. They triggered a spontaneous national discussion about race and racism that was in many ways long overdue. Ms Goody's conduct, and that of the former...
Tim Lott: The witches of EndemolSunday, 21 January 2007
However, what has actually been revealed by that light shifts shape, according to where you stand. What you see depends on what you expect to see. The real drama takes place in the private theatre of your own prejudices. Those given to misogyny could...
Leading article: No exceptions, no exemptionsSunday, 21 January 2007
These reforms are contained in last year's Equality Act, which comes into effect this year. Until now, the most controversial provisions have been those that require the providers of accommodation, including bed-and-breakfasts, to treat gay couples i...
Wersha Bharadwa: I feel for Shilpa, but she doesn't speak for British Indians like meSunday, 21 January 2007
One thing's for sure; the fatuous, slicked-up new faces of racism - Lloyd as the wag, Goody as the chavvy celeb and O'Meara as the pop singer - has at last allowed young British Indian women to sigh in collective relief. Their exposure ventilates the...
Joanna Briscoe: All she wants is a his'n'her loo...Sunday, 21 January 2007
Victoria's first week in LA has been a round of highly orchestrated celebrity activity. She's working it. It almost looks like a spoof. In a pre-emptive strike six months before Becks is due to lift a foot, she's been viewing 35 desirable properties ...
Letters: Iraqi health careSaturday, 20 January 2007
The single most important thing that would help Iraq's children now would be to end the violence, violence that affects electricity supplies and distribution of medical equipment and which claims the lives of doctors. That's what the Iraqi government...
Robert Gifford: Cycling safety must be moved into the fast laneSaturday, 20 January 2007
Per distance travelled, cycling is 18 times more dangerous than driving, but it is also healthier and better for the environment. So, whatever measures we take, we want to ensure that they do not frighten people from cycling. One positive step is to ...
Leading article: Some unpalatable medicineSaturday, 20 January 2007
The problem lies in the question: how well rewarded? None of our correspondents has fully engaged with the fundamental point that GPs are now taking home a considerably higher percentage of the gross sums they are handed by Primary Care Trusts to run...
Michael Bywater: Welcome back. Sorry we ruined the planetSunday, 21 January 2007
If it's true that you spent 19 years in the Cambodian jungle, you'll have realised by now that changes are like assumptions: we don't know we're making them, and they creep up on us while our back is turned. It's also said (though in the Information ...
Rupert Cornwell: Out of AmericaSunday, 21 January 2007
Double murderer Gilmore, as anyone who has read Norman Mailer's The Executioner's Song will remember, wanted to die. And just six months after his conviction, his wish was granted. Since then, the trappings of his death have become part of the ghouli...
Leading article: Homespun philosophySaturday, 20 January 2007
In truth, it is hard to see what Mr Brown has in common with the man Winston Churchill once scornfully described as a "half-naked fakir". Gandhi was a pacifist who advocated mass civil disobedience. Gordon is a command-and-control centraliser who sup...
