Leading article: A little rough justice will help ministers to get a gripThursday, 22 November 2007
That may not be fair – a question to which we shall return in a moment – but it is undeniable. The telling comparison is drawn with Britain's ejection from the European exchange rate mechanism in 1992. In fact, the withdrawal of the pound ended a per...
Sarah Churchwell: This knee-jerk anti-Americanism is stupid and lazyThursday, 22 November 2007
Despite not hailing from New York, about which more below, I'm an American who is as opposed to key aspects of current US foreign policy as the next girl – unless the next girl is Condoleezza Rice. But it is precisely because I am no apologist for th...
Leading article: A debacle that may come to haunt the GovernmentWednesday, 21 November 2007
In the circumstances, Alistair Darling performed as well as could have been expected. He gave every appearance of telling it as it was – a cock-up of the first order. We glimpsed the full-blown panic that had clearly spread like wildfire from the dee...
Nick Clegg: I aim to restore people's faith in politicsWednesday, 21 November 2007

Richard Thomas: Individuals value their privacy - institutions do notThursday, 22 November 2007
Incidents such as the security breach at HM Revenue and Customs reinforce the importance and necessity of data protection – or people protection as I prefer to call it. The Data Protection Act sets out the framework for how organisations should proce...
Michael Brown: It's not just about competence, it's about perceptionThursday, 22 November 2007
I was a junior government whip and we had already recently suffered the initial fallout from the Black Wednesday ERM debacle. Mr Smith was enjoying himself with cheap jibes about the inability to start the Grand National and houses that were falling ...
Leading article: TrumpedThursday, 22 November 2007
It is there – where now stands the ramshackle old smallholding of Michael Forbes – that the American wants to build £1bn-worth of Trump International Links, which will include two championship golf courses, a five-star hotel, 950 holiday homes and 36...
