The routine has become familiar. An approaching whump of rotor blades, then the piercing plummet of a giant bomb as it shreds the sky above. The few who have stayed behind in east Aleppo know exactly what to do. “We run to the basement and we stay...
‘The queue is endless and you need to wait for long hours’ Abu Issa, 60 From Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp We’ve got nothing . No food, no money. We are sharing the animals’ food now by living on grass we get from the gardens. I have diabetes, but...

The government’s position on food banks was mired in confusion last night after it emerged that David Cameron had enthusiastically backed their work at a Christian faith group’s Easter reception, in contrast to biting criticism of the schemes made last...

The super-flexible working conditions demanded by one of the UK’s largest supermarket chains are damaging the mental health of most of its employees, according to a new report from Cambridge University. The report has been submitted to the...

Here’s a question. When you think of sexual discrimination laws, do you automatically think of equal rights or women’s rights? If your instinctive honest answer is women’s rights, how long does it take to correct yourself? A group of caretakers and...
My parents won’t be seeing me for a while – it’s too dangerous. They live in Rutland, site of the recent earthquakes. The quakes, as I now insist on calling them, were centred on Oakham, where I went to sixth-form college; my parents live a few miles...
Australian researchers have discovered something called “peak beard”. This is when people see so many beards that they desire the clean-shaven look (the reverse also appears to be true). Beards also have a fashion food chain: starting off adorning the...

Across London and the south-east this weekend, crowds are gathering around modest properties in a spirit of anxiety and anticipation. Amid talk of a superbubble, house hunters cannot afford to take a break from the increasingly frenetic race to find...

MAKING A NEW LIFE French writer Alexia Abadie has seen 30 properties so far, all without success. She still hopes to find somewhere affordable to call home. THE GRATEFUL SON Harry Day-Brosnan, 26, is being bought a house “as an investment” by his...

Something disquieting happened at Sea-World marine parks this year. Numbers attending the group’s popular US centres between January and March dropped, from 3.5 million in 2013 to 3.05 million this year, a decline of 13%. Nor is it hard to guess the...

Former Tory minister Neil Hamilton has been axed from his role as Ukip’s campaigns director. He has been replaced by the party’s director of communications, Patrick O’Flynn. Although insiders claim Hamilton’s demotion resulted from fears that his...

English Heritage has rebutted claims by Boris Johnson that the organisation backed almost all of the 200-plus new towers planned for London. Responding to the launch of the London Skyline campaign in the Observer earlier this month, a spokesman for...
Former cabinet minister Jonathan Aitken is drawing on his personal experience of befriending and helping a former prison inmate to quit crime and find a stable job, as he calls on ministers to establish a new national network of 15,000 mentors to slash...

It is part Soviet theme park, part wacky anti-western wonderland. Stuck to the barricades outside the “Donetsk People’s Republic” are several caricatures of Barack Obama. There is Obama as Hitler, complete with moustache. There is Obama, Bonaparte and...

The gap between Gakirah Barnes’s front teeth when she smiled made her look even younger than the 17 years she spent in south Chicago before she was shot dead last weekend. “At least I don’t have to constantly worry about what’s going to happen to her...
Rescuers have recovered the body of one mountain guide after an ice avalanche swept the lower slopes of Everest killing at least 13 in the deadliest accident on the world’s highest mountain. The avalanche struck a perilous passage called the Khumbu...

Space is so short in the immense warehouses where Kopenhagen Fur, the world’s largest fur auction house, runs its business, that boxes of mink skins now fill up rooms designed for inspecting furs or sorting them into different grades and...

Human rights campaigners have sounded the alarm about proposed Brazilian anti-terrorism legislation that they fear will be used to crack down on legal protests during the World Cup. The government says that it needs the new law before the tournament,...

Here, in the eye of an edgy urban housing scheme in the heart of England, the talk is of Scotland and separation and the glue that holds a kingdom together. The Claremont in Manchester’s maligned Moss Side describes itself as a community pub (ideal for...

I now know the answer to the question that’s haunted me ever since I began investigating the true cost of fast fashion. How many people would it take to be killed in the supply chain for fashionable, low-cost garments before any of us actually gave a...
1979 A referendum on devolution is held in Scotland. Although 52% vote for devolution, 36% of the electorate abstain, voiding the motion, which requires 40% of the electorate to carry it through. 1997 After Labour’s election triumph, Scottish...

fter a period of uncharacteristic inactivity, the street artist Banksy has returned to his familiar place: the media spotlight. Last week, two pieces of artwork became the focus of much speculation and controversy, a combination in which the furtive...
Born It’s thought he is Robin Gunningham, who was born on 28 July 1973 in Bristol to Peter Gunningham and Pamela Ann Dawkin-Jones and attended Bristol Cathedral school. Best of times When he first became a cult name at the turn of the millennium and...

The Ukrainian crisis is not over. The fourparty statement, reached in Geneva on Thursday, means several things. It is not, however, the end of anything. It does signal that, despite their oppositional positions, Russia and the United States do have...

Oh, that’s novel – a radio station specialising in black music being attacked by an older white male who doesn’t listen to it. (The odd lift encounter aside!) In case you missed the headlines, Jeremy Paxman has been having a go at his employer, the...

The shame of Nigeria’s Nig abandoned students stu
Easter, with its daffodils, chocolate eggs and bunnies, has long been as much about the rebirth of spring as the glory of the risen Christ, a pagan as well as a religious rite. This year, the secular and the sacred are more than ever tangled up in our...
If one were looking for a case study in “creative destruction” – the economist Joseph Schumpeter’s term for the messy way in which capitalism renews itself – then the current row over Uber, the internet-powered taxi-hailing service, would be hard to...
FRONT PAGE NEWS Teachers wage war on Tories Britain’s largest teachers’ union promised yesterday to continue its campaign of hostility against all aspects of the Government’s school reforms. In a calculated snub to Prime Minister John Major and the...
Mr Patten, who is reflecting on his future while on holiday in France, has been given until Tuesday to decide whether to take the £140,000-a-year job to preside over the transfer of the British colony to China. Mr Major would like to announce an...
“I regret it in terms of having to get out and try to find another job, because I am a very honest person and I will probably have to lie about what has happened. But in terms of honesty, integrity and professionalism, it was the right thing.” Nurse...

If champagne were still allowed on Planet Labour, the corks would be popping to celebrate the arrival of David Axelrod on the election campaign team. One of the main strategists behind Barack Obama’s victories, Axelrod is an impressive hire for Ed...

Even American eyes are starting to pop at the sheer extravagance of executive pay. Last week, the New York Times published its annual league table of chief executive pay at the US’s top 100 publicly quoted companies. The average has now climbed to...

United Nations special rapporteur Rashida Manjoo, a South African human rights expert, has landed herself with the twin charges of relativism and hyperbole for claiming that the British “boys’ club culture” is more sexist and pervasive than many...

No cause is as dead as the campaign to provide an amnesty for illegal immigrants. Farsighted politicians once found it intolerable that criminals could abuse and exploit the half a million among us who were living beyond the minimum wage, the tax...

Hip hip hooray for Sarah Crown and Mumsnet for their new campaign to get rid of Bounty reps from our maternity wards (“He’s lovely! Just give me a few details – then we can flog you stuff for years”, Viewpoint, last week). I’ve been campaigning on this...
So marathon running is benefiting from all the modern, hi-tech geewhizzery, radical advances in training, nutrition, physiology, medicine, GPS, heart-rate monitors, oxygen chambers and every wonderful new aid you can imagine? Let’s look at the facts...

Politics and religion are the two topics where offence is most easily caused. Since politicians cannot avoid the former, it is prudent to steer clear of the latter. This is why Alastair Campbell once advised Tony Blair not to “do God”. By that, he...
Thomas Piketty (New Review, last week) and Will Hutton (“Capitalism simply isn’t working and here are the reasons why”, Comment, last week) argue capitalism isn’t working. It has long been known, as Winston Churchill put it in 1945: “The inherent vice...
Said & Done (Sport, page 6, 23 March) said that the South African president, Jacob Zuma, had been “told to repay the $14m of public money he spent on his private estate”. We should make it clear that the sum is disputed and that, if Zuma pays anything...
Nick Cohen’s piece headed “Hard Times 2014: food banks and property booms” (Comment, last week) is rightly hard-hitting about 21st-century poverty. Just a coda, though: food banks, certainly round here, aren’t just run by Anglicans. In Stowmarket,...

I well remember watching openmouthed a very old film at the Astley Green colliery museum of three women unloading pitprops (lengths of tree trunk fully a foot taller than them) from wagons. One would lever them upright and the other two would “bounce”...
It was good to see you reprint Sue Townsend’s article “Bottles for the bus fare” from 1989. For 20 years, I used this article as a college lecturer to counter the prejudice that everyone on benefits must be a scrounger. It never failed to quieten the...

Considering the whole business model of moneysupermarket.com relies on punters squeezing out a few extra pounds for themselves, it would seem churlish for the price comparison site to complain about the alleged behaviour of the star of its latest...
Could this be the week? The one that investors have been waiting for? The one when Carpetright bucks the long-term trend and speaks to the City without unveiling a profit warning? Well, it would certainly be a revolutionary approach by the floor...

A defining few months for Ralph Topping, the (fairly) soon-to-bedeparting chief executive of William Hill, who has transformed the bookmaker into a FTSE 100 company. That performance has come as a surprise to most in the industry – not least Topping’s...

Try not to spend it all at once, but you’re getting richer (marginally – and on average). Wage growth has finally begun to outpace inflation, meaning that real earnings are finally rising after years of heading in the wrong direction, figures released...

Life appears to be imitating two old ad campaigns at struggling Tesco. In one of the grocer’s memorable commercials, Prunella Scales returned a trout she no longer fancied because it seemed sad – and shareholders might now consider doing the same with...
As everybody knows, Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves is a tale about a humble worker who discovers the secret to entering a cave stashed with stolen riches and liberates a few for himself. So there are absolutely no parallels with Wall Street and tech...
Quote of the week goes to Richard Pennycook, interim boss of the Co-op Group, as the embattled mutual announced losses of £2.5bn: “We’re not trying to sugar-coat that in any way. This disastrous result reflects the crisis that emerged at the bank in...
Almost the last gasp of British cigarette manufacturing was heard last week, with Imperial Tobacco announcing the closure of its Nottingham plant – home to John Player Superkings, John Player Special, Lambert & Butler, Embassy and Regal – putting 540...

Genel Energy, the oil group created by financier Nat Rothschild and run by former BP boss Tony Hayward, updates investors at its AGM this week. The shares remain below the £10 float price.

A“superbubble”, “recordbreaking” and “disastrous” – official figures released last week showing that London house prices rose by almost 18% in the year to February had commentators reaching for the superlatives, and everyone else wondering where it...

Britain’s apparent love affair with China has intensified over recent months. George Osborne has on many occasions trotted out the need to strengthen the UK’s economic and business ties with the world’s second-biggest (and soon to be largest) economy....

My recent reference to George Osborne being “the zerohours chancellor” relates to the fact that he spends so much time plotting political strategy in No 10 Downing Street that he gives the impression of being on a zero-hours contract with the...
What do you call a meeting of the Barclays bank remuneration committee? An awards ceremony. So quipped Lord Oakeshott, former Liberal Democrat Treasury spokesman, on the day of Barclays’ 2012 annual shareholders’ meeting, when feelings about bankers’...
Last week saw a persuasive example of the difference between strong talk about discrimination, and action. In the UK, Vince Cable has threatened to legislate over the gender imbalance in boardrooms, but the prime minister of Italy has actually done...

Here’s a counterintuitive moment. Far away in New York they’re announcing this year’s Pulitzer prizes. Score a big one for the Guardian, Washington Post and Edward Snowden. But I’m in Cape Town at the International Press Institute’s annual congress...

The FT was never a problem for the old Press Complaints Commission. Indeed, it was never of much relevance there: playing no committed role, leaving the shaping of PCC policy to others. Something of a pious pink Joe on the sidelines. So the news that...

Astore refuses to refund faulty goods. The builder botches your extension. A landlord won’t return your deposit. Many of us find ourselves in situations like these, and if you get nowhere trying to resolve the dispute, there is always the small claims...

Vodafone provides the sim card for my iPad and I recently discovered that I was receiving daily premiumrate texts from the number 41117. The iPad does not display texts and so I was unaware of them. I suspect there are millions of these texts sent...

Three-bedroom Casa Concordia marries smart colonial interiors with arty accents. Art nouveau tiles pattern the floors; lamps are made from beer bottles and cocktail shakers. Architect owners Jonathan and Kendra have loaded the TV with Cuban films and...
