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

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

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 ...
