Leading article: A relaunch dogged by confusion and conflictMonday, 1 September 2008
The Chancellor's interview at the weekend set the scene. In contradiction to the Prime Minister's reassuring words of comfort on the current crisis, Alistair Darling painted a desperately gloomy picture of world economic prospects, claiming they were...
Leading article: On the right trackMonday, 1 September 2008
The Danube Express, dreamchild of the son of a Durham ticket inspector, which will roll out of Budapest for Warsaw for the first time this week, is a welcome addition to the line. Some may cavil at the elitist nature of Howard Trinder's project. Cert...
Leading article: Storms amid the sunshineMonday, 1 September 2008
The chink in the dark for Mr McCain and his surprise choice as running mate, Sarah Palin, is that George Bush may not now show up in St Paul at all. This may be no disadvantage to a Republican candidate seeking, as Mr McCain is, to put the widest pos...
Richard Schiff: As my household shows, we're a divided nationMonday, 1 September 2008
I was oh-so anxious to return home and discuss the week's events with my wife. My wife, Sheila of the Hillary camp, of the middle-American, working-class, Catholic, voting block, of a father who landed on Omaha Beach in June of '44 and who wouldn't v...
Podium: The war on terror is not a figure of speech. It is realMonday, 1 September 2008
In two weeks, we'll mark another anniversary of September 11th, 2001 – and we'll recall the attacks that took 3,000 lives and did such great harm to our nation. We'll be reminded, once again, of the kind of adversaries that we face in this war. These...
John Lichfield: Normandy NotebookMonday, 1 September 2008
Finally, the bells have been restored, booming out the hours and breaking into occasional, inexplicable peals of joy. Inexplicable because the church has not been used for more than two decades, other than for the odd wedding and frequent funerals. L...
Neal Lawson: A windfall fuel tax is only fairMonday, 1 September 2008
The revenues would be earmarked for two specific purposes: to cut bills for the poorest this winter, so they don't have to choose between heating and eating, and to fund a nationwide programme of home insulation to cut future bills and the carbon foo...
Leading Article: We're not all doomed, Mr DarlingSunday, 31 August 2008
He told The Guardian that we are facing economic times that "are arguably the worst they've been in 60 years". This was a remarkable assessment, not least because, on the face of it, it was untrue. Was he saying that current forecasts are for conditi...
Why do all males have two left feet?Sunday, 31 August 2008
Where is it written that heterosexual males must always be curmudgeons on a dance floor? When they take girls aside at school to tell us about sex, drugs and periods, are the boys kept in the sports hall to have both their legs stapled together? Is i...
Melanie McDonagh: Faith schools work. Until you take the faith awaySunday, 31 August 2008
So far, so not-new, and characteristic of anything you might expect to hear from the National Union of Teachers or the National Secular Society. But the thing about Accord is that its ranks are swelled by religious individuals as well as professional...
The IoS diary: Polish Hearth Club hit by economic downturnSunday, 31 August 2008
For at least half the world's population, Brad and George can do no wrong. But I gather journalists at the Venice Film Festival are thoroughly cheesed off with the smoothy pair after they called a press conference but failed to show up. Apparently a ...
Message Board: Is women's pain overlooked and misunderstood?Sunday, 31 August 2008
Drug research should spend more money on women and stop research and expenses on men. Men could, and should, bear pain. Frankly, one more pain for them doesn't make much difference. James Men are keener to sign up for drug trials than women. It's...

Rose Prince: Beware the hidden costs of cheap foodSunday, 31 August 2008
Good food seems to be an early victim of the credit crunch. Sales of organic goods fell last month by 19 per cent, down to £81m from an all-time high of £100m at the start of the year. Consumers are tightening their belts and making their most recent...
