  • Leading article: Confident, but not entirely compelling
    Tuesday, 21 September 2010

    After their leader's speech some Liberal Democrat nerves are likely to have been settled. Mr Clegg made a compelling case for the Coalition, presenting it as a manifestation of "plural politics, partnership politics". It is certainly the case that th...

  • Leading article: Wounded pride and public relations
    Wednesday, 22 September 2010

    Yesterday delegates of the international teams who will compete in the Indian capital complained about the state of the accommodation for the 7,000 athletes and officials due to arrive in the coming days. A statement from Team Scotland labelled the r...

  • Leading article: The rise of the far right
    Tuesday, 21 September 2010

    All these interpretations contain an element of truth, although it is easy to exaggerate change in a society as essentially consensual as Sweden. But it is, inevitably, the rise of the far right that will seize most attention in the outside world. Th...

  • Letters: Liberal Democrats
    Wednesday, 22 September 2010

    The Lib Dem leadership will be urged by party members to ensure that spending cuts do not disproportionately hit the poor, after Nick Clegg said planned cuts were the "only choice" for economic recovery. The only choice? You mean there is no other ...

  • Lisa Markwell: Crazy for a piece of the fashion action
    Wednesday, 22 September 2010

    Meanwhile Abbey Clancy – wronged pregnant fiancée (I know, I know) of footballer Peter Crouch – and famed-for-being-pneumatic Kelly Brook strutted their stuff before the international glossy posse wearing clothes that they both would find far too mod...

  • Leading article: Not as green
    Wednesday, 22 September 2010

    The Coalition has yielded little of great benefit for the environment thus far. There are promises of a Green Investment Bank to finance new renewable energy infrastructure. Councils have been permitted to sell their surplus renewable energy back to ...

  • Brian Paddick: I'm British, but had to travel to Norway to get married
    Wednesday, 22 September 2010

    We were able to do so because the Norwegian government had decided the year before that if there was to be an end to discrimination between gay and straight people, then the distinction between civil partnerships for gay couples and marriage for stra...

  • Martin Hickman: Approval is one thing, but will the public swallow GM foods?
    Wednesday, 22 September 2010

    Only 6 per cent of people spontaneously mention GM as a concern compared with 20 per cent at the peak of the "Frankenstein Foods" row in 2003. This drop-off is probably because people think GM has been "dealt with", according to the Food Standards Ag...

  • Murray Sayle: Terror and television
    Wednesday, 22 September 2010

    Where were you when you heard about the massacre of the innocents in New York and Washington? I was in bed in Japan, reading a new book about Vietnam. The phone rang. It was my son, Alex, calling from Sydney. “Turn on the telly, Dad,” he said. “You’l...

  • Letters: The Pope's visit
    Tuesday, 21 September 2010

    There are articles every week banging Vince Cable's drum on behalf of big business and its need to bring in "talented" non-EU staff ("Migration cap is very damaging, says Cable", 18 September). The notion that in a trading bloc of over 500 million ...

  • Leading article: Monet supply
    Tuesday, 21 September 2010

    But now the French seem to be waking up to Monet's potential as a crowd puller. The Grand Palais in Paris is mounting the largest retrospective of his work in the country since 1980. And demand for tickets has been strong. There will be an extensive ...

  • Steve Connor: Worrying sign that Thatcher's 'brain drain' has returned
    Tuesday, 21 September 2010

    Science is one of the few truly international activities where the market principle operates in terms of human talent. The best people are free to go where they want, provided the opportunities and the money are there – a bit like world-class footbal...

  • Ben Chu: Smelling salts for Mr Cable!
    Wednesday, 22 September 2010

  • John Rentoul: In case of emergency
    Wednesday, 22 September 2010

  • Leading article: Just like that
    Wednesday, 22 September 2010

    Oh dear, oh dear. The magic of magic, as anyone who has ever been a child knows, lies in its amateurishness: the sense of impending collapse as the four-year-old wanders on stage to peer behind the curtain; the rabbit that chooses the wrong moment to...

  • John Rentoul: Rally for Sanity
    Tuesday, 21 September 2010

  • John Rentoul: Micro-Armageddon
    Tuesday, 21 September 2010

  • Bob Russell: We are now a force to be reckoned with
    Tuesday, 21 September 2010

    Liberal Democrats are now serious players, and need to be taken seriously. This conference in Liverpool is by far the biggest and, I would say, the best. The fact that we are in Government has clearly made this so, added to which the facilities are f...
