  • Leading article: The unfinished green revolution
    Tuesday, 27 April 2010

    They have also developed credible policies to help achieve that, which their respective environment spokesmen were pushing yesterday. Labour proposes to establish a green infrastructure bank and to promote home insulation. The Tories want to speed up...

  • Leading article: Sheer power and unwarranted privilege
    Monday, 26 April 2010

    Seven Goldman employees – including the firm's chief executive, Lloyd Blankfein – will face a grilling this week by Senator Levin's committee. Meanwhile, President Barack Obama is pushing banking reform through Congress in the teeth of fierce opposit...

  • Leading article: A perilous electoral stalemate
    Tuesday, 27 April 2010

    The latest twist in the sorry saga of Iraq's 2010 parliamentary elections came yesterday, when the country's independent electoral commission went back to ask its judicial review panel for clarification about a recount. The panel had ordered a manual...

  • Kim Sengupta: Intervention in Yemen has come too late to halt slide to extremism
    Tuesday, 27 April 2010

    Al-Qa'ida now has a firm presence in the country thanks, partly at least, to the government of President Ali Abdullah Saleh doing little to combat the influence and recruitment drives of Sunni extremists. Yemen, an impoverished country where guns out...

  • John Curtice: Would Alternative Vote be better than the status quo?
    Tuesday, 27 April 2010

    Our latest poll puts the Conservatives first on 32 per cent, just ahead of the Liberal Democrats on 31 per cent, while Labour are behind in third place with 28 per cent. However, under the current system such a result would probably mean Labour would...

  • Leading article: The case for co-operation
    Monday, 26 April 2010

    Such comments suggest that the union is gearing up for a political battle over cuts after the next election. This might be seen as rather surprising, given that the Conservatives and Labour have pledged to ring-fence health spending (with the Tories ...

  • John Curtice: Influence of Lib Dems in hung parliament depends on staying ahead of Labour
    Monday, 26 April 2010

    Lib Dem support has slipped in the wake of the more evenly contested second leaders' debate. The party's average poll rating now stands at 29 per cent, down a point on all polls conducted between the first and second leaders' debates. True, one weeke...

  • Letters: A question of religion
    Tuesday, 27 April 2010

    I am married to a Catholic and have allowed our two children to be brought up in that faith. We are a free-thinking zone because I am a deity sceptic. Yet I have to acknowledge that there are many wonderful people in the Church, both priests and la...

  • Leading article: Monster myths
    Tuesday, 27 April 2010

    But the most touching revelation to emerge from the official Loch Ness monster archive is the protective instinct of the Scots. Reports that a dastardly London couple, armed with a special harpoon gun, had recruited a posse to hunt it down, were met ...

  • Daniel Howden: Authorities must stop playing blame game and end this shameful waste
    Tuesday, 27 April 2010

    Beyond the blame game over responsibility for the ongoing disaster of gas flaring in the delta region, there is an opportunity when solving this problem to ease some of the tensions that have contributed to unrest in the first place. Along with all t...

  • Letters: Election polls
    Monday, 26 April 2010

    It is undoubtedly true that the Lib Dems have gained support following the first television debate on 15 April, but most national opinion polls are useless in determining how the national share of the vote is likely to break down among the three part...

  • Leading article: Bad sport
    Monday, 26 April 2010

    It would be tempting to blame diving footballers, drug-taking athletes, batsmen who refuse to walk and all the other villains of top-level sport for the poor example they set to the nation's youth. It would be tempting, too, to search for a root caus...

  • Liz Hoggard: Clothes maketh the man
    Monday, 26 April 2010

    It's reassuring that back in the 16th century airbrushed images of the body beautiful were dreamt up to haunt average-size men. Even today the male body is still very much a taboo subject. Women live daily with their imperfections (too fat, too thin,...

  • Catherine Pepinster: The PM may welcome the Pope, but the FO holds Catholicism in cultural contempt
    Monday, 26 April 2010

    At senior government levels, it has been acknowledged that there might be objections to, even demonstrations against, the visit, given some people's opposition to Catholic teaching on matters such as Aids and condoms. I presumed that was why Sir Gus ...
