    Is the BBC really pro-Israel?

    The idea that the BBC is actually pro-Israel is fantastical. Yet it is now being discussed as a serious proposition. The irony is that the Arab media now seems more critical of Hamas than media in the West

    Scottish independence: It's about the soul not the cash

    The No campaign against Scottish independence focuses far too much on the cash register side of the argument. Scotland probably would do badly from a financial point of view. But that's not the point

    Once it was "Blair's babes"; now it's "Cameron's crumpet". We're back to gratuitous pre-election politics again. Gove went because he was too good, and the Guardian didn't like him. And who's this Brussels bound Lord Hill fellow?
