Sacrificing the lamb in Woolf’s clothing hurts only the abuse victims

thesundaytimes.co.uk — Full disclosure: I've attended a small dinner with Lord Brittan and his wife at an embassy, although I doubt that either of them can remember the event. I have interviewed Brittan many times in his roles as a cabinet minister, European commissioner and Tory grandee.

Spineless Cameron is letting Farage’s foxes into the Tory henhouse

thesundaytimes.co.uk — YOU CAN'T walk far at Westminster these days without bumping into a grinning Conservative Eurosceptic. Within a couple of minutes I got the same wolfish answer from a couple of them to my inquiry about the state of play. "Things are all going splendidly," they purred.

Witty and wicked: Andrew Marr’s revealing political thriller

newstatesman.com — Andrew Marr is a marvel. In January 2013 he suffered a debilitating stroke while overdoing it on a rowing machine. But he quickly resumed his career as the BBC successor to David Frost on Sunday mornings. He has continued to produce TV documentaries, especially those linked to the independence campaign in his native Scotland.

A week for troublemakers to strut and kingmakers to take the hit

thesundaytimes.co.uk — A recurring theme of this final conference season before the general election has been the claim by loyalists of one big party or another that the other big parties are in cyclical decline.

Be warned, PM, voters know how quickly a vow can become a swindle

thesundaytimes.co.uk — David Cameron's closest advisers say he "won" the Scottish referendum - and, after all the headless chicken panic, by percentage points in two figures. To them the prime minister's appearance on the steps of No 10 early on Friday was a moment to savour.

Say you pull it off, PM, where’s your plan for the day after?

thesundaytimes.co.uk — Say you pull it off, PM, where's your plan for the day after? The crisis has receded a little this weekend. A string of opinion polls have blunted the sgian-dubh dug into the Union's heart by last week's YouGov poll for The Sunday Times. "No" to independence is, very narrowly, back in the lead.

Cheer up, PM. At this rate you will all be over by Christmas

thesundaytimes.co.uk — Cheer up, PM. At this rate you will all be over by Christmas Eleven days to go and the bookies are rubbing their hands at the wagers. The battle for Scotland's independence has become a real race. Contemplating the way the opinion polls have moved, the unknown punter who placed a record-breaking £800,000 on "no" must be feeling a little queasy.

Honourable but crafty, Carswell pulls off a political coup

thesundaytimes.co.uk — Honourable but crafty, Carswell pulls off a political coup Douglas Carswell won't mind missing the Tory party conference. A couple of years ago he told me that he hadn't been in the main hall once all week, not even for his leader's speech.

Bercow’s building an empire as high priest in the cult of the CEO

thesundaytimes.co.uk — Bercow's building an empire as high priest in the cult of the CEO At last two former foreign secretaries have spoken out on the big issue obsessing Britain's parliamentarians: who should be the next clerk of the House of Commons.

Chancer Cameron takes a thwack for neglecting his homework

thesundaytimes.co.uk — Chancer Cameron takes a thwack for neglecting his homework By his own admission David Cameron lost a battle in Brussels.
