THROUGHOUT his time in office Gordon Brown has rightly become notorious for his dishonesty but, in his lengthening catalogue of deceit, no utterance has been more grossly misleading than his 2007 vow to promote “British jobs for British workers”.

Cameron's Komsomol: a youth movement to spread the Big Society cultural revolution
It had to come: every Five Year Plan, every social engineering blueprint for a Big Society, needs its corps of Young Pioneers.

Comparisons to the Great Depression: Inexact But Telling
For the majority of us, the credit crisis we are living through has come rather unexpectedly. And because it has been both a surprise to many and a traumatic experience to yet many more, we are all trying to contextualize it using past economic and historical periods. Unfortunately, this is a tricky exercise because it risks conflating the root causes and outcomes of the historical period with those of the present.

Cancer vaccine programme suspended after 4 girls die
The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has told Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat to immediately suspend the cervical cancer control vaccination programme for girls. The programme is part of a two-year study to look into the utility of a vaccine in public health programmes and acceptability of Gardasil, the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine made by Merck. Gardasil, available in chemist shops across the country, is marketed in India by MSD Pharmaceuticals Pvt Ltd.
The programme was marred by controversy after four deaths and complications among 120 girls were reported after vaccination. The girls complained of stomach disorders, epilepsy, headaches and early menarche. Women activists fear the vaccine may impact the mental health of girls who have shown no signs of distress so far.
