"... 'cause I remember ..."
Not all England team-members came away empty-handed when (wait for it) football (almost) came home at Euro 96. Twenty years ago this month, and some 16 years before London 2012’s 70,000 selfless and tireless ‘Games Makers’ became the world’s most acclaimed ...

All those Afghan interpreters, British's crucial unarmed forces, merit grateful refuge not dismissive neglect
A young girl brings a letter home
from school from her parents. So far, so everyday, anywhere. Except it’s from the Taliban,
vowing execution for her ‘infidel’ father. His crime? Risking his life – and
those of his family and friends – for British forces. O...

Syria crisis, five years on - a nation set back decades
‘If you dare give those to Bashar al-Assad, I swear I’ll find you and beat you up.’ Back then the threat seemed jarringly unlikely and would have been laughable had the situation not been so bleak - in retrospect it reflects somehow a relatively simpler tim...

"These memories keep coming back - and I'm glad they do": Michael Sheen on Syria's lost generation
They could be kids running carefree in Port Talbot or on the streets of London - or even the teenage daughters of an A-list Hollywood couple. Instead, they are the civil war-scarred, homeless, helpless and forced-old-before-their-time children cast adrift b...

"Love These Goon Shows!"
‘Take it away, wanna hear you play ‘til the lights go down...’ Ah, RIP Sir George Martin.  In an uncharacteristic blip of a Queen’s English slip, the Holloway-born, Bromley-schooled producer said in advance of Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band : ‘It’s go...

Humanity remains washed ashore, for all too many more...

One year on from Nepal quake, the child victims sold as sex slaves - and the thousands still waiting for help
Girls as young as three are being sold by their families into the sex trade for less than £400 after Nepal’s ‘forgotten’ earthquake a year ago this Monday. The number of children and young people at risk of abuse and slavery is surging amid chaos and desper...

Victoria Pendleton on jump-racing: "It feels like you're flying"
Double Olympic champion Victoria Pendleton has condemned the sexism of cycling - insisting she would rather continue horse-racing and even take up dressage than take her bike off the track and on to the road. The Beijing 2008 and London 2012 gold medallist ...
