Let the real EU fight begin

What a bind David Cameron finds himself caught in. Trapped between his fat-cat friends who love the EU business-friendly policies and attacks on workers, and his party's racist right who hate the EU out of blind nationalism.

Elderly care facing crisis

"Care in the community." Those are words to send a shiver up the spine of anyone who remembers the darkest days of Thatcherism.

Don't cry for the military

The latest round of cuts in Britain's military spending should be welcomed by all who want to restore sanity to a world filled with the horrors of mass slaughter in Afghanistan and Iraq, drones in Pakistan, torture in Abu Ghraib, al-Qaida terrorism in London and New York, murder in Ain…

PM's dodgy tightrope

There are few certainties in politics, but one thing that can be highlighted with little fear of contradiction is that nothing of value will come from David Cameron's speech in the Netherlands tomorrow.

Outrageous injustice

The letter from public-service union Unison to local councillors lays bare the hardship that this government of multimillionaires is deliberately imposing on local authority workers.

Libya all over again

Miliband must up his game

Ed Miliband's Fabian Society speech attacks the divisive effects of the conservative coalition's policies, but his One Nation responses are lightweight and ineffective.

Society failed our children

The scale of Jimmy Savile's single-minded campaign of sexual abuse against children and other vulnerable people over six decades is staggering.

Fat profits from prisons

The coalition's prison closure plans have all the hallmarks of a classic Conservative double whammy - a cost-cutting measure that dumps the burden on already overloaded staff and offers a fat profit for the Tories' friends in big business too.

Probation the next target

Justice Secretary Chris Grayling claims that it is necessary to transfer 70 per cent of probation services to the private sector because reoffending has been "too high for too long."
