  • Leading article: Sinn Fein takes a key step towards shared power
    Monday, 29 January 2007

    Yesterday's landmark Sinn Fein decision to support the police and justice institutions in Northern Ireland flowed from recognition of that stark fact, as has so much else in the Irish peace process. The idea of formally pledging recognition of the po...

  • Leading article: Criminal negligence
    Sunday, 28 January 2007

    It is not hard, therefore, to understand the short-term forces that have produced the latest wheeze to ease the pressures on prison space. Instead of letting prisoners out early, the cunning plan in the Home Office is to admit some convicts late, we ...

  • Max Clifford: You said sorry to the princes, Mr Coulson. Now apologise to me
    Sunday, 28 January 2007

    Yes, we fell out, but I wouldn't have wished this on him. It has also done great harm to the credibility of journalists, who are respected little enough as it is. Big exclusives are the lifeblood of newspapers, and if reporters don't get stories, or ...

  • Leading article: Wars and rhetoric about wars
    Monday, 29 January 2007

    Instead of heeding the will of the voters, however, President Bush treated the verdict with contempt. Rejecting the Iraq Study Group recommendations, which called for the US military presence in Iraq to be scaled down, he opted for the precise opposi...

  • Leading article: The minister of inequality
    Sunday, 28 January 2007

    Last week, The Independent on Sunday reported that Ruth Kelly, Secretary of State for Communities, was still trying to secure the exemption, with the Prime Minister's support and against the views of a majority of the Cabinet. We argued that appeasin...

  • Oliver James: The sickest show on TV?
    Sunday, 28 January 2007

    Five "judges" are propositioned by a series of contestants to give them money. The series pledges to give away £1m, although it's not completely clear whether the money comes out of the judges' pockets ITV's. The panel include the poisonously offensi...

  • David Usborne: Our Man In New York
    Monday, 29 January 2007

    The depth of my fecklessness only struck me later when I caught the beginning of a film on television called Firewall with Harrison Ford. My stomach knotted as the tidy life of his character began to unravel when he found he owed $92,000 (£47,000) in...

  • Leading article: The final whistle
    Monday, 29 January 2007

    Grandstand was a child of the early television era, when viewers had few choices and were by and large grateful for what they got. The programme was conceived as the national showcase for sport, and it flitted between racing, football, athletics and ...

  • Steve Connor: Global warming is not some conspiratorial hoax
    Monday, 29 January 2007

    For the past six years, some 2,000 of the world's leading climatologists, glaciologists, meteorologists, oceanographers and specialists from dozens of other disciplines have trawled through all that has been published in the scientific literature on ...

  • Leading article: Of hacks and hacking
    Sunday, 28 January 2007

    If he did not know about it, Mr Coulson should have done, a fact he accepted by resigning on Friday. And Mr Murdoch has been royally embarrassed by his failure to send a clear message through the News Corporation system that such practices - whose ex...

  • Joanna Briscoe: Ladies, don't waste your life on lettuce
    Sunday, 28 January 2007

    What clearly does suffer from an eating disorder, however, is our country's mindset. Yeah. Like, our culture. A recent survey claims that women spend an average of 31 years of their lives on a weight-loss diet. Well that's funny, because men seem to ...

  • Rupert Cornwell: Out of America
    Sunday, 28 January 2007

    With a bit of patience and deft positioning, even the foreign correspondent who has a potential readership of zero New Hampshire voters can get a brief one-on-one with the man who just might be the next leader of the free world. Alas, this precious i...

  • Paul Arnott: Confessions of a Branscombe beachcomber
    Sunday, 28 January 2007

    We drop the children at school and head innocently to Branscombe just to see the Napoli. The listing ship is as incongruous as the Thames whale, but an odder sight is men wheeling motorbikes away with a docket from the Receiver of Wrecks. The atmosph...
