  • Leading article: Shocking stories, practical solutions
    Tuesday, 4 December 2007

    But there are some constants. News tends to be about incidents rather than situations. It is about what is unusual rather than everyday. That is what is different about the stories we tend to tell our readers in our annual Christmas Appeal, which we ...

  • Leading article: Kyoto is a hard, but not impossible, act to follow
    Monday, 3 December 2007

    The need for a new treaty should be far beyond dispute, as evidence of the gravity of the threat from climate change continues to mount. Today we report a study showing that the tropical climate zone is expanding towards the poles faster than any of ...

  • Letters: Anti-Semitism
    Tuesday, 4 December 2007

    For someone who prefaces all of her anti-Zionist ramblings with a confident declaration that she will be accused of anti-semitism for criticising Israel, she has a bad habit of then inviting such accusations by dropping a casually insulting comment s...

  • Leading article: The unfamiliar taste of defeat
    Tuesday, 4 December 2007

    Under these circumstances, the president deserves credit for honouring his promise to respect the result. Mr Chavez swiftly conceded and urged his followers not to turn the vote into a point of conflict. Mr Chavez is, so far, giving the impression of...

    Monday, 3 December 2007

    United Russia, the party nominally headed by President Putin, emerged with a commanding majority though mercifully nothing like the 90 per cent won by the ruling party in Soviet times. Exit polls put the party's share of the vote at 60 per cent, with...

  • Leading article: Bear with us
    Tuesday, 4 December 2007

    And, for the first time, the prize itself was staged outside the capital. The 2007 exhibition was held at Tate Liverpool, to help the city generate some buzz before it takes on the mantle of European Capital of Culture next year. By all accounts it h...

  • Tom Lubbock: Wallinger is deserving Turner winner
    Tuesday, 4 December 2007

    Born in 1959, Wallinger is a conceptual artist working across media, making paintings, films, sculptures, installations, performances. Over the past two decades he has produced an extraordinarily rich and inventive body of work much too various to su...

  • Leading article: Child poverty creeps back
    Monday, 3 December 2007

    It is too early to dismiss the policy as a complete failure. After all, the number of children defined as poor has fallen by 600,000 since 1999. What can be said is that the policy has stalled, and the levers employed have lost their potency. Prime a...
