Leading article: Cold winds are swirling around the third partyTuesday, 16 October 2007
There had been rumblings of discontent within the Liberal Democrats ever since Sir Menzies took over from Mr Kennedy last March. The expected boost in the party's electoral fortunes never materialised. There was a feeling from the very start that Sir...
Leading article: A bold attempt to clear the clouds of confusionMonday, 15 October 2007
This is brave talk. It is likely to be met with the usual knee-jerk dismissal that such recommendations habitually attract. But, as more and more thoughtful people adopt this view, is it not time to consider the chief constable's views on their merit...
Letters: Obesity and climate changeTuesday, 16 October 2007
However, these really poor people are being increasingly affected by climate change – a condition again caused by the greed and wasteful way in which the minority of people in the developed world live. The only real connection between obesity and cli...
Leading article: A failure of deliveryTuesday, 16 October 2007
First there is the financial cost to consider. The stoppages over recent weeks are estimated to have cost Royal Mail more than £200m. But more damaging has been the cost to Royal Mail's reputation. The patience of its customers has been sorely tested...
Sean O'Grady: He took over too late and never defined his directionTuesday, 16 October 2007

Leading article: The chance for a fresh startMonday, 15 October 2007
In fact, Mr Howard and his main challenger, the Labour Party leader, Kevin Rudd, have been skirmishing publicly for several months. And if Mr Rudd had not been aware of the perils that lay ahead, the recent media exposé of his drunken visit to a New ...
Martin Barnes: The key question is how do we minimise harm from drugsMonday, 15 October 2007
We need to look at the best way of minimising the harm drugs can cause and that can mean looking at radical policy changes. But to be effective and to get public support and investment, change has to be incremental. Proponents of legalisation are goi...
Leading article: Pride and joyMonday, 15 October 2007
In the tournament's group phase a few short weeks ago, England appeared to be giving up their 2003 crown without a fight. The 36-0 defeat at the hands of South Africa marked a nadir from which there was no foreseeable way back. Yet back they have com...
David Usborne: Our Man In New YorkMonday, 15 October 2007
Robert Byrd of West Virginia has done even better, recently being honoured with a portrait in the halls of Congress as the longest-serving Senator. He's been at it for 49 years. In a country that celebrates "worker mobility" people who stay put in on...
