  • Leading article: Don't blame the euro for a crisis not of its making
    Tuesday, 23 November 2010

    To which there can be only one answer: dream on. Ireland may be hampered to a degree – a very small degree – in extracting itself from its predicament by the constraints inherent in euro membership, but the euro is not what plunged Ireland into this ...

  • Leading article: A few words that could prove a revolutionary moment
    Monday, 22 November 2010

    Interviewed in a new book, the Pope states that condoms can be acceptable in some circumstances, modifying decades of Catholic dogma on the subject. The example he cites is a male prostitute who is at risk of transmitting HIV. For that group, the use...

  • Leading article: Testing is not the answer for everything
    Tuesday, 23 November 2010

    That is a laudable aim. The last government adopted an over-controlling attitude to education which weighed teachers down by bureaucracy. When they should be teaching, or preparing lessons, they are instead ticking boxes to comply with government ini...

  • Letters: Declining fish stocks
    Monday, 22 November 2010

    Identify some of the best habitats for the feeding and breeding of fish and then declare them absolute no-fishing zones. The rest of the ocean would then be free-fishing zones where the fishermen could fish at will. The conservation zones would gradu...

  • Leading article: The world urgently needs this deal
    Monday, 22 November 2010

    According to the latest analysis from scientists at Exeter and East Anglia universities, there was a small dip in global emissions of 1.3 per cent in 2009. And this year they are expected to increase by at least 3 per cent – more than the average ann...

  • Letters: how animals are killed
    Tuesday, 23 November 2010

    In the past few months I have asked, before booking a table, whether I could order non-halal or kosher-killed meat in three popular restaurants in a widely used local shopping destination: in each case the question was greeted by surprise and polite ...

  • Susie Rushton: What's fair game in north Devon?
    Tuesday, 23 November 2010

    You know the flashpoints in this debate: the slaying of the Emperor of Exmoor, the horsey women of the Countryside Alliance, Carole Middleton fitting in with the Firm by blowing birds out of the sky ... One half of Britain rattles with indignation at...

  • Leading article: A red card from the refs
    Tuesday, 23 November 2010

    It's gone well beyond the usual moaning about bad decisions which – along with complaining about mistakes by players or bewildering team selections by managers – are part of the disgruntled fans' pleasure in the game. In post-match interviews manager...

  • Geoffrey Robertson: Precedent is critical for law holding leaders responsible
    Tuesday, 23 November 2010

    Troops loyal to Mr Bemba certainly crossed over to the Central African Republic in 2002 and committed mass murder and mass rape. One legal issue for the court will be whether he can be held responsible for their depredations without proof that he spe...

  • David McKittrick: Fall guy... Cowen must accept public’s blame
    Tuesday, 23 November 2010

    In the polls and in the pubs the verdict is the same: he does not look prime ministerial and does not look confident or competent. No whiff of personal corruption has attached to him, but apart from this and his keen intellect, he has few positives...

  • Robert Verkaik: The need for justice is more urgent than ever
    Tuesday, 23 November 2010

    In such cases lawyers often talk about the quality of mercy and argue that justice delayed is justice denied. But when those crimes involve the mass extermination of another race, few believe that the age, or even the health, of the perpetrators shou...

  • Deborah Ross: Office workers have the things I yearn for
    Tuesday, 23 November 2010

    I know about this because I work from home, yet yearn to work in anoffice and yearn all year long. I yearn to steal pens and paper and envelopes and Post-It notes. I yearn to bitch behind others' backs instead of, as things stand, having to bitch abo...

  • Leading article: Hope springs eternal
    Monday, 22 November 2010

    Perhaps Mr Chase, the owner of the upmarket Tyrells Crisps, senses a golden opportunity in next year's Royal Wedding. The Queen already takes bottles of Malvern with her on overseas visits. Just imagine what could be accomplished with brand ambassado...

  • Steve Connor: Link between fossil fuels and economic growth has to be broken
    Monday, 22 November 2010

    Anyone studying the global emissions of man-made carbon dioxide over the past 30 years can see that the only time there was a dent in their growth was during a worldwide recession – once in the early 1990s and again in the early 1980s. Fossil fuels h...

  • Harriet Walker: Let's end the tyranny of sports jocks
    Monday, 22 November 2010

    Any cuts to the dwindling trickle of cash into our parched and arid schoolscape should raise concerns. But even the most caricatured of nasty Tory governments meets its cruel and sadistic match when compared to the British PE teacher. Gove has his wo...

  • Catherine Pepinster: Benedict's revision gives hope to those involved in the reality of tackling Aids
    Monday, 22 November 2010

    But in the middle of the consistory came revelations of a new book-cum-interview with Benedict XVI in which he indicated a change in thinking on the use of condoms to combat the spread of the HIV. In Peter Seewald's volume The Light of The World, to ...
