Self-censorship in the British Media

British journalists pride themselves on their freedom to write without fear of censorship (but with due regard for good taste and our sometimes draconian libel laws).

Dressed for Success

BY JONATHAN FOREMAN

Allan McGurrell of Stafford Street. He's not Savile Row, but it is 'Savile Row' in that he is a bespoke tailor and based in Mayfair.

Hypocrisy thy Name is Green

BY JONATHAN FOREMAN

Censorship by Fire
BY JONATHAN FOREMAN

Ours is a cowardly society. This is particularly true of the media and publishing industries. How else to explain the lack of attention paid to the Gibson Square incident.

Abandoned in Moscow

BY JULIA PETTENGILL

What will it take for the Obama administration to realise that their treasured "Reset" is the foreign policy equivalent of Monty's Python's dead parrot? The insults and harassment heaped upon Michel McFaul, the American Ambassador to Russia, apparently aren't enough.
