  • The statement by Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry
    Tuesday, 6 November 2007

    "Any action by the government after the passing of this order is illegal, including the detention of lawyers and members of civil society whose only sin is that they opposed the emergency and the PCO. Up to 13 justices of the Supreme Court of Pakista...

  • Leading article: No more stunts and cynical manouvering
    Tuesday, 6 November 2007

  • Leading article: The desperate act of a weak and rattled president
    Monday, 5 November 2007

    Sadly for Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan, his latest coup is unlikely to be greeted with similar success, hence the gloom and dismay felt in Western capitals and the apparent indifference on the streets of Islamabad. Few expect any good to come out of ...

  • Letters: Defeating terrorism
    Tuesday, 6 November 2007

    It seems to me that if the Government admitted its foreign policy mistakes and apologised to the Muslim brotherhood for the devastation and carnage in Iraq, it would go some way to lessen the threat to this country and would be a better way of fighti...

  • Leading article: Bad debts and bad decisions
    Tuesday, 6 November 2007

    Given that the early estimates of the global total of losses to financial institutions from sub-prime amounted to some $200bn, that either means Citigroup has amassed more than its fair share of dodgy loans, or that the fall-out from the sub-prime cr...

  • Sunder Katwala: Brown must not stick to his winning formula
    Tuesday, 6 November 2007

    A decade-old government cannot see off calls of "time for a change" by sticking to "more of the same". Mr Brown's own change agenda must build on areas the Government got right during his decade as Chancellor. He must also explain why key issues, not...

  • Letters: Maritime treasures
    Monday, 5 November 2007

    Although it has ratified the European Archaeology Convention and says it is committed to the annex of the Unesco Underwater Cultural Heritage Convention, both of which ban "archaeology" for commercial gain, the Government's profit-sharing deal with t...

  • Leading article: Saved by a timely resignation
    Monday, 5 November 2007

    It was why the words of Nigel Hastilow, the Conservative parliamentary candidate for a Midlands seat not far from Powell's old Wolverhampton constituency, in which he insisted Powell had been right, touched off such alarm. By resigning, Mr Hastilow h...

  • Dr Neal Spencer: Now all the world can witness this ancient marvel
    Monday, 5 November 2007

    When the tomb of Tutankhamun was opened in the Valley of the Kings in 1922 by the British archaeologist Howard Carter, it was at the beginning of the age of mass media. Pictures of the tomb and its extraordinary contents were seen around the world in...

    Monday, 5 November 2007

  • Chris Huhne: There are better things to do than replace Trident
    Monday, 5 November 2007

    There are more pressing military priorities for our troops in Afghanistan and Iraq: body armour, helicopters, armoured personnel carriers and medical care. In this leadership contest, Liberal Democrats need to take a hard look at our party's position...

  • Leading article: Back on track
    Tuesday, 6 November 2007

    When the Queen opens the refurbished St Pancras today, hopes will be high that it will inaugurate a similarly gilded era for UK rail travel. The construction of the station has been almost as painstaking as of the original. The boost to train travel ...

  • Leading article: In the teeth of it
    Monday, 5 November 2007

    And of course, if Tut can be restored and "brought back", albeit in a virtual sense, more than three millennia after his death, it begs the question of who will get the same treatment 3,000 years hence. Forget Elizabeth II. Yeltsin? Nigella? Duh! The...
