Roy Hodgson was voted manager of the year by his peers after an excellent season by Fulham’s standards. However, Liverpool’s expectations are far, far higher. Today the club that have not won the League title for donkeys years (while great rivals Manchester United do it with the frequency of shampoo) are languishing [...]
I can see the argument that public sector schools and hospitals might get worse if only the poor use them (although I don’t necessarily buy it). But how does your child benefit get worse if top rate tax-payers don’t receive it?

Mail, p5: “Being slim ‘makes a woman happier than any man could’”.
Mail, p11: “Having a big bottom and thighs could shape up to a longer life, claim researchers”. And the intro in the paper that doesn’t get into print: “Curvy women such as Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez and Nigella Lawson may live longer thanks to their [...]

Victory for the Workers Party’s Dilma Rousseff, President Lula’s chosen successor and long-time frontrunner, now looks uncertain compared to a few days ago. Marina Silva, the third-placed candidate from the Green Party, had a strong showing and now turns potential king- or queen-maker in a run-off [...]
