  • Leading article: The danger of a wasted generation
    Tuesday, 6 July 2010

    None of this comes as a surprise. Britain might technically be out of recession, but the economy is barely expanding. Companies are still not hiring at a normal rate. Graduate vacancies are forecast to fall by 7 per cent this year, according to a sur...

  • Leading article: Money alone is not the answer
    Monday, 5 July 2010

    John Yates, the head of counter-terrorism at Scotland Yard, last week claimed that cuts to the police budget – in line with cuts across the rest of the public sector – would put Britain at greater risk of another terror attack. These were private rem...

  • Ben Chu: Nipped in the Budd

  • Leading article: Still relevant in a globalising world
    Tuesday, 6 July 2010

    Success and failure, alike, are the outcomes of the core tension at the heart of the UN system between competition and co-operation. It promotes simultaneously the need for internationalism and the protection of national sovereignty. So it has been a...

  • Leading article: Pass the rotten parcel
    Monday, 5 July 2010

    The implications are depressing. It means that hundreds of thousands of children are receiving a substandard education because poor teachers are not being removed from the schools system. There are two forces at work here. The teaching unions are pro...

  • Chris Huhne and Vince Cable: The green economy is still viable
    Monday, 5 July 2010

    However, one of this Government's crucial challenges is to ensure that this growth does not occur at the expense of the environment, but rather for its benefit. The balance must tip away from reliance on fossil fuels for power, heat and manufacturing...

  • Letters: Cuts and Egon Ronay
    Tuesday, 6 July 2010

    As David Cameron stood at the Despatch Box and boasted of 600,000 forthcoming public-sector job losses, he not only showed smug disregard for the people and families who will be turned out on their ear by this overzealous cull, but also ignorance o...

  • Leading article: End of the road
    Tuesday, 6 July 2010

    Officials in the little town (population 80,000) have decided that its existing 17 drive-thru, which outnumber sit-down restaurants by six to one, have contributed enough to the nation's weight problem. Instead, as the ban was introduced at the weeke...

  • Sue Palmer: Early start means that many children fall at the first fence
    Tuesday, 6 July 2010

    As our national culture grew ever more competitive, it was easy to convince parents that an early start is a good thing. In a dog-eat-dog world, no one wants their beloved child to be "left behind" or "held back". So over the last 15 years, we have s...

  • Ian Burrell: Corporation is still refusing to confront reality of cuts
    Tuesday, 6 July 2010

    At the conclusion of its Strategy Review, the BBC Trust decided there wasn't, after all, a case for the closure of the digital radio station 6 Music, which was by far the most significant sacrifice being proposed by BBC management in response to crit...

  • Letters: War and sanctions
    Monday, 5 July 2010

    Barack Obama's decision to sign a package of tough new energy and financial sanctions against Iran comes at a time when the United States has increased its naval strength in the Gulf to three aircraft-carrier groups and 10,000 combat personnel. These...

  • Leading article: No small job
    Monday, 5 July 2010

    Speaker Bercow only narrowly escaped being defenestrated when the new parliament convened after the general election. But that brush with political death has not stunted Speaker Bercow's modernising zeal. For he is now is proposing to overhaul that c...

  • Mick Brookes: Incompetent staff work the system. Sacking them is hard
    Monday, 5 July 2010

    A headteacher needs a sense of moral purpose in tackling poor teachers. Challenging them carries great difficulties. In some cases, the person you tackle will go off sick. I can understand that – they will be under stress – but it means you can't dea...

  • Oliver Gillie: Time to abandon this outdated view on staying out of the sun
    Monday, 5 July 2010

    Vitamin D deficiency is well known as the classic cause of rickets and serious bone diseases, but in the last 10 years it has also been identified as a major risk factor for diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, infections, some cancers and other ills....

  • Julian Baggini: What is deep thought?
    Monday, 5 July 2010

    The idea that thinking in the modern world is shallowing out has become the received wisdom of the cognoscenti. In a massively connected world, so the story goes, we are bombarded by more and more information but in ever smaller units. The typical gr...
