Thanks Your Holiness, but I don't need forgiveness for my abortion

telegraph.co.uk — This is all being interpreted, of course, as an astonishing act of liberalism by a pontiff intent on dragging the Catholic church into the 21st century. Only a few days ago he had the conservatives spluttering over their communion wafers when he praised Francesca Pardi, the Italian author who's penned children's stories about same-sex families.

Eight white men in a room: Life inside the bleak Liberal Democrats

telegraph.co.uk — Talking to Mr Lamb, you get a sense almost of grief about the election result. Since January, he's been flat out, trying as a government minister to initiate a step change in the way mental health was dealt with, then running for the leadership, and only now is the reality of life as one member of an all-male octet beginning to dawn on him.

Yvette Cooper's wrong - it's not sexist to think Ed Balls influences her

telegraph.co.uk — What reminded Mr Burnham's aides of the Balls playbook was Ms Cooper's rather aggressive call for her rival to withdraw from the leadership race on the grounds that he wasn't putting up a proper fight against the frontrunner Jeremy Corbyn. And to any outside observer, that ruse does appear rather more redolent of Balls than Cooper.

Yvette Cooper's wrong - it's not sexist to think Ed Balls influences - Telegraph

telegraph.co.uk — Years ago, when I was a political journalist on the Financial Times, I was trying to stand up a story about Ed Balls. I'd called virtually every contact who might know, to no avail. So in what I admit was an act of desperation, I called his wife, Yvette.

'Sexy sea dog' Jeremy Corbyn has smashed the Labour sisterhood

telegraph.co.uk — It's a souped-up, lefty version of what's already on offer from the other candidates. His opponents Yvette Cooper and Andy Burnham have made noises about better childcare, and less swingeing welfare cuts. Corbyn proposes "a system of universal free childcare" and "an urgent end to the cuts to public services and welfare".

Labour's robotic women don't stand a chance against Jeremy Corbyn

telegraph.co.uk — Yvette 'robotic' Cooper But when challenged, instead of ripping up the script and showing some feeling and emotion, she parroted a pre-rehearsed soundbite about a "childcare revolution" and a "digital revolution". I know it was pre-rehearsed, because she rehearsed it on last night's Channel 4 News.

David Cameron - a compassionate Tory feminist after all?

telegraph.co.uk — So Mr Cameron's ambition to close the pay gap within a generation, and "create the pressure we need for change" is welcome, if overdue. But changing his mind won't do the prime minister any harm at all. Quite the reverse.

FactCheck: Are young people being priced out of living where they grow up?

blogs.channel4.com — The claim "In many parts of our country it has become normal for young people to leave, though not out of choice. This might be to find work, but more and more, it is to find a home that they can afford."

You wouldn't defend racism. So stop backing sexist scientist Tim Hunt

telegraph.co.uk — Certainly, the spectacle of a Twitter mob baying for blood was unedifying. And if that played any part in a rush to judgement by UCL, it's regrettable. But even so, you won't be surprised to hear that I for one will be letting this particular bandwagon roll on by.

Spot on by @cathynewman: Tim Hunt confirmed and defended his sexism, so the nitpicking is irrelevant. He had to go. telegraph.co.uk/women/womens-p…

The Queen vs The Queen of Scots: Is Nicola Sturgeon's crown slipping?

telegraph.co.uk — But that has cut little ice with Buckingham Palace, which is briefing every Tom Dick and Harry that they will not let the matter rest. On the face of it, so what? The SNP has never had much truck with the monarchy.
