Why David Cameron's political point-scoring on the Welsh NHS won't wash

Even by its own historically shameless standards, the Daily Mail has had a week to forget.The paper’s week-long “exposé” of the Welsh NHS has actually managed to expose just two things, both of which we already knew. One, they print what the Tories ask ... [Published New Statesman - Oct 24 2014]

Cameron admits that the Treasury kept him in the dark over £1.7bn EU bill

Aside from his visible fury at the EU landing him with a bill for an extra £1.7bn in membership contributions, the most notable thing about David Cameron's press conference in Brussels was his admission of a communication breakdown inside the government. ... [Published New Statesman - Oct 24 2014]

I used to chop logs like a man. Now I stay in bed and it’s exhausting

I appear to have taken to my bed for a week. It seems like the sensible thing to do when life is loused up beyond repair and you’re feeling ill on top of it all. Someone recently suggested crosswords and a spot of baking as a cure for depression and, ... [Published New Statesman - Oct 24 2014]

The old lady was taking lots of pills – and then she got confused

In past centuries, barbaric practices were pursued by doctors in the name of healing. Bloodletting rendered sick people anaemic and more likely to succumb to their original illness. Purging inflicted diarrhoea and dehydration on those already fighting ... [Published New Statesman - Oct 24 2014]

John Gray on the moral universe of H P Lovecraft

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, ... [Published New Statesman - Oct 24 2014]

Peace to the forest, a place of ways unknown

On this crisp October morning, as it travels the width of Germany, my train passes through Hesse, one of the country’s most heavily forested areas. Among the many striking contrasts between here, my current home, and the UK is just how much more woodland ... [Published New Statesman - Oct 24 2014]

Falling wages are still spoiling Osborne's boasts on growth

In the current global economic climate, growth of 0.7 per cent in the third quarter, as announced by the ONS today, is more than respectable. Output is down from the 0.9 per cent recorded in the previous three months but George Osborne can still boast ... [Published New Statesman - Oct 24 2014]

Why UK universities must steer clear of trigger warnings

The world is not necessarily a happy place. Social scientists like myself know this well, thanks to the huge amount of time we spend examining difficult issues such as racism, gendered violence and poverty in minute detail. These issues are a core part ... [Published New Statesman - Oct 24 2014]

Quotes

"Having elected a new leader, I believe the party will show the same will and determination it did in the referendum campaign to help us to victory in the general election of 2015 and the Scottish elections of 2016."
...revealed on Sky News earlier that he was "told on Tuesday", while Danny Alexander said he  was informed of it " over the past couple of days". " It's something that's only formally been handed over in that period." One wonders if Cameron is as content with his ministers keeping him in the dark as his public comments suggest
...GAP's chief executive, on announcing the rise, said, "our decision to invest in front-line employees is that that we expect to deliver a return many times over"
...It's with this in mind that Osborne framed himself today as the man to shield voters from the vicissitudes of the global economy. He said: "The UK is not immune to weakness in the euro area and instability in global markets, so we face a critical moment for our economy. If we want to avoid a return to the chaos and instability of the past then we need to carry on working through our economic plan that is delivering stability and security.”"
