Osama Bin Laden: The Unknown Cost of Victory

The death of Osama Bin Laden will be analysed by hundreds of authors in hundreds of books and thousands of chapters for years to come, if only as a bookmark in the continued war on terrorism and fundamentalism.
However, it will be analysed in countless different ways. Some will write about a death fetishised by the [...]

Ian Tomlinson, and many others like him, deserve justice

Finally, two years after the G20 demonstrations descended on the City of London, the truth that we knew all along has been confirmed.  Ian Tomlinson was unlawfully killed.  A newspaper seller, on his way home from work, attacked from behind by a police officer.  Minutes later, he died.
The Tomlinson case could prove to be one [...]
