  • Leading Article: Inhumanity, hypocrisy, and a policy that shames Britain
    Friday, 5 October 2007

    The Asylum and Immigration Tribunal had originally decreed that the three men should be sent back to the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, because there was no likelihood that they would be persecuted on their return. That ruling was subsequently struck do...

  • Leading article: Mr Cameron issues his own electoral challenge
    Thursday, 4 October 2007

    By yesterday afternoon, it was less the scepticism of his party that he had to overcome – the threat of an imminent election had tamed the party and potential rivals into grateful quiescence – than the scepticism of the country at large. With specula...

  • John Curtice: Brown needs not just a victory but a Tory rout
    Thursday, 4 October 2007

    There certainly appears to be no danger that Labour could actually lose an early election. Virtually any lead at all over the Conservatives should be enough to secure the party a fourth overall majority. The average lead in the most recently conducte...

  • Andrew Anthony: My book upset a few people - and now I'm a racist
    Friday, 5 October 2007

    When I set out to write my book The Fallout: How a Guilty Liberal Lost his Innocence, I wanted to look at questions from which I thought the liberal left shied away. What responsibilities do we have to each other as fellow citizens, say, in protectin...

  • Letters: Tory party
    Thursday, 4 October 2007

    The Conservatives have absolutely no vested interest in maintaining the fiction of "Britishness" or the "Union", which Gordon Brown, as a Scottish constituency MP, has. It is also embarrassingly clear that the party, despite David Cameron's bleatings...

  • Leading article: The sound of a revolution
    Thursday, 4 October 2007

    This week, the revolution entered a new stage. The Charlatans have announced that they will make their new album available to anyone who logs on to a radio station's website. And Radiohead are asking their fans to pay as little or as much for their l...
