Leading article: A positive initiative to combat the ravages of Aids in AfricaSaturday, 1 December 2007
Two years ago, there were virtually no anti-retroviral drugs dispensed in Africa. By the end of this year, thanks to government assistance under the G8 agreement at Gleneagles and private funding, there will be some 2 million people in sub-Saharan Af...
Leading article: Ms Gibbons and a teddy bear named MohamedFriday, 30 November 2007
Which is a pity. Ms Gibbons went to Sudan with the most laudable of motives. Barely three months later, she found herself vilified and hauled before a Sudanese court all because she had allowed her class to name a teddy-bear, of all innocent objects,...
The Weasel: Platform performanceSaturday, 1 December 2007
Betjeman might not have argued with this disparaging view. His poem Late-Flowering Lust begins: “My head is bald, my breath is bad/ Unshaven is my chin.” In case anyone thinks I fit this unappealing description, I might point out that I am hirsute (b...
Letters: House pricesSaturday, 1 December 2007
Nationally, the average house price is 6.9 times the average income compared with 3.5 times in 1997. In Kensington and Chelsea the ratio is 20.4. Only four of England's 353 local authorities have earnings to house price ratios of less than the tradit...
Leading article: An explosive legacySaturday, 1 December 2007
The former Prime Minister never seemed to understand the hypocrisy of introducing new rules to make funding more open and to guard against conflicts of interest and then seeking to get round them. We were supposed to say: "At least they are better th...
Letters: Party fundingFriday, 30 November 2007
Political parties should obtain funding through membership. If parties are unable to interest enough of us to even vote in elections, let alone become members, what on earth gives them the right to continued existence let alone the right to help them...
Leading article: Lower is better, for someFriday, 30 November 2007
Over the past few years quite a chunk of the population has seen the annual increase in the value of their home exceed their income from employment. In true Thatcherite style, home ownership has delivered prosperity and financial independence to mill...
Dr Vincent McKee: Only the support of bishops would be enough to spark an uprisingFriday, 30 November 2007
The surrender of Antonio Trillanes and his associates after a brief shoot-out with police and soldiers brought the curtain down on the fifth such effort in barely seven years. Subsequent detentions and curfews, not to mention public support from the ...
Leading article: Too much realitySaturday, 1 December 2007
And they are not alone. Recently, one hears whispers from frustrated 20-somethings wary of Facebook's ever-extending tentacles. The danger is all the more pressing with the party season upon us. Suddenly, camera phones and messages are everywhere, do...
Hermione Eyre: We desecrate the nation's libraries at our perilSaturday, 1 December 2007
Waltham Forest council finally admitted on Thursday that they had culled large numbers of books from their library stock (they could not confirm the exact quantity because record-keeping had been so haphazard). Outraged locals are planning to stage a...
Leading article: Walk right inFriday, 30 November 2007
It's a nice ruse, this tactic of "spontaneous" dropping-by, enabling the US president to show warmth while not getting involved in official approval. And in this case it suits both parties. Bush, having famously dismissed the present leader of the Br...
