Leading article: An imperfect election may offer the best hopeThursday, 29 November 2007
So this was a key moment in the personal history of President Musharraf and in the political history of Pakistan. But it should have meant far more to Pakistan, and its regional and global standing, than it did. For while General Musharraf was fulfil...
DJ Taylor: There's more (literary) bad sex than ever beforeThursday, 29 November 2007
Amid all the hilarity about Jeanette Winterson's robotic love-romps and Christopher Rush's cod-Shakespearian paeans to "glorious pubes! The ultimate triangle", the Bad Sex award, founded 15 years ago by the late Auberon Waugh, is there to make a perf...
Leading article: The State must make its contribution to democracyWednesday, 28 November 2007

Bianca Jagger: The unacceptable face of our Aids policy at homeWednesday, 28 November 2007

Leading article: Greater understanding is neededThursday, 29 November 2007

Letters: HeathrowWednesday, 28 November 2007

Leading article: A new challenge, but also an opportunityWednesday, 28 November 2007

The Sketch: The great, the good and the many gather in hallowed hallsWednesday, 28 November 2007
But in the US Naval Academy here, America's senior service equivalent of West Point, no cause is beyond rescue, even the matter of peace between the Israelis and Palestinians. "Don't Give Up The Ship", proclaimed a big banner in the graceful Memorial...
Leading article: The end of a festive affair?Thursday, 29 November 2007

Leading article: A potentially dangerous legacyWednesday, 28 November 2007
And it goes on: a vast increase in production from renewables, with accelerated development of wind and tidal power. Changes to vehicle excise duties to hammer gas-guzzler cars. A tax on aircraft fuel. Strict energy efficiency criteria on new houses ...
