Leading article: A package that puts the environment firstFriday, 12 September 2008
The unions, which had strongly lobbied for a windfall levy, were, naturally, deeply angry. And ministers were accused of "caving in" to the greedy energy companies. In one respect, the unions have a point about the poor behaviour of the energy sector...
Jon Cruddas: How did we become the party of the establishment?Friday, 12 September 2008
The New Labour project is exhausted. Its promise of change in 1997 was greeted with optimism – "things can only get better". A decade on, that change has become associated with the turbulence of global capitalism – fear of immigration and economic in...

Leading article: A scientific lesson in lifeFriday, 12 September 2008
This is no ordinary experiment of course, but the largest and most ambitious ever attempted. Over the past two decades, Cern has drawn on the expertise of a veritable army of scientists. And it helps, of course, that it is researching the most fundam...
Martha Robinson: Teenspeak is not for adultsFriday, 12 September 2008
Some seem out of date (has anyone actually said "whack" since the 1990s?), some may be made up, and others are clearly after my time (with my 19th birthday rapidly approaching I am beginning to lose touch with teen speak). However, if you do have a b...
Elin Jones: We are not a protest group. We are a modern partyFriday, 12 September 2008
Using a flag to fool the electorate is something Labour seem to do often. Gordon Brown's attempts to hide the fact that he's Scottish by waving the Union Jack has back-fired on all counts. The Scottish think he's betraying his roots and Middle Englan...
Carola Long: Forget science: as every fashionista knows, black is bestFriday, 12 September 2008
Absolutely none. The most avant-garde designers don't let pedestrian details such as whether certain patterns add pounds interfere with their creative visions. And besides, the women who wear these straight-off-the-catwalk pieces are generally so thi...

Letters: The education systemThursday, 11 September 2008
Thousands of GCSE students are already embarking this month on modular courses and the new-style GCSEs, available for first teach in September 2009, will consolidate this trend. A-levels went modular in 2000 and primary education was carved up with t...
Robert Verkaik: A jury's right to be unpredictableThursday, 11 September 2008
In their case the judge ordered the 12 jurors to convict the defendants of "unlawful and tumultuous assembly" for preaching on a Sunday afternoon in the City of London. When they refused, he locked them all up overnight without food or water and fine...
Leading article: Theo strikes backFriday, 12 September 2008
England owes Mr Walcott a debt of thanks for breathing some life into the carcass of its national football team. But his feat was also an inspiring personal story. Walcott's selection two years ago for England's World Cup squad as an untested 17-year...
Michael McCarthy: Feathered friends down Fulham wayFriday, 12 September 2008
Those of us Born To Follow Fulham, currently blessed in Roy Hodgson with a manager who brings the application of intelligence to the beautiful game, have always been blessed with the terrace. On a fine autumn or spring afternoon, there can be few mor...
Leading article: Offal tastyThursday, 11 September 2008
So what, then, are we to make of the news that sales of animal organs have been surging in Britain? Is it an indication of the downturn hitting the kitchen economy? Are we being impelled by financial necessity to buy the cheaper "variety meats", like...
