  • Leading article: Unpeaceful gridlock
    Tuesday, 28 September 2010

    The move threatens to undermine the Middle East peace talks only weeks after they were launched with great fanfare at the White House. It leaves Mahmoud Abbas in an almost impossible position. If the humiliated Palestinian President pulls out of the ...

  • Leading article: A leader for the post-New Labour age
    Monday, 27 September 2010

    His first point was that he would be his own man, "not Bob Crow's man". That Ed Miliband outpolled David thanks largely to the votes of trade union members gives the Conservatives a stick with which to beat him, and it is one they lost no time in app...

  • Leading article: The hard work starts here
    Tuesday, 28 September 2010

    On the first, much depends on the intentions of the new leader's elder brother, David, whom he narrowly defeated for the leadership. The senior Miliband made a gracious speech yesterday at the Labour conference and a passionate plea for party unity. ...

  • Michael Brown: The only generation that matters
    Tuesday, 28 September 2010

    Not being a Labour Party Kremlinologist – at least when it comes to fathoming the policy differences between the two Miliband brothers – I have concluded that the main reason Ed won was thanks to his lustrous, gelled, black hair. David lost because o...

  • In defence of the older man
    Monday, 27 September 2010

    Couple of questions. Male? Check. Older? Check. Right. You’ve had it. You can’t cook. You do something terrible and unspecified with your socks. You have no conversation. You may be living longer but is that necessarily a good thing? Or better you di...

  • Letters: Labour Leaders
    Monday, 27 September 2010

    One day, quite unexpectedly, he resigned and left the job of prime minister to his heir apparent, a man who had been Chancellor of the Exchequer but, unfortunately, a man who did not know the trick of winning elections. In his three years in the top ...

  • Leading article: The barest hint of change
    Monday, 27 September 2010

    Such conferences are a rarity in North Korea. Comparisons are being made with the congress of 1980 when Kim Jong-il was formally singled out as the successor to his long-serving father, Kim Il-sung. And the true import of this meeting is unlikely to ...

  • Letters: Labour leadership
    Tuesday, 28 September 2010

    The questioning of Ed Miliband's victory in the Labour leadership election because the trade unions supported him really does beggar belief. The Labour Party was set up by the trade unions to represent working people; why on earth should they not h...

  • Leading article: Chill, innit
    Tuesday, 28 September 2010

    Whoa there! Everyone is in favour of articulacy. But Ms Thompson's mistake is to assume that modern slang frustrates the ability of all young people to express themselves. As linguists have pointed out, "innit" is a modern English version of the "inv...

  • Daniel Howden: Coastguards of the stolen seas – or ruthless opportunists?
    Tuesday, 28 September 2010

    To their tacit supporters the pirate gangs are coastguards or disaffected fishermen reasserting control over stolen seas. To their critics and high seas opponents they are ruthless opportunists disrupting the global trading system, blocking food aid ...

  • Leading article: A credit to us all
    Monday, 27 September 2010

    The real reasons, though, may be more prosaic. The early losses in Paris offered a lesson: mechanics and money are key. Bikes had to be made hard to steal in practice, and the deposit scheme difficult to cheat. So far, it seems, mission accomplished....

  • Nicholas Lezard: How not to greet a little green man
    Monday, 27 September 2010

    Yet one wonders what it is about the Malaysian space agency, which has been around since 2002, that gives it the edge over, oh, let's say, NASA, which has been sending people into orbit and beyond for decades. According to the unusually sub-literate ...

  • David McNeill: A daring attempt to prolong the cult of family dictatorship
    Monday, 27 September 2010

    Kim is greatly helped by the fact that the country's governing apparatus is a hollow shell after deaths and purges. The old five-man politburo now has just one member: Kim himself. The conference is likely to nudge his son along the road to power, no...

  • Ben Chu: The IMF is not infallible
    Tuesday, 28 September 2010

  • Ben Chu: The red peril facing Britain
    Monday, 27 September 2010
