This revelation, arising from information provided by an internal whistle-blower, resulted in an 11 per cent reduction in the supermarket giant's share price, putting the share value at an 11-year low. How can an error this large have occurred?

Is Labour's cancer test the right priority?

Is Labour's cancer test the right priority?
Description
No one will be surprised to see that Labour has put health care at the front, the back and the middle of its election strategy. Given the prominence of the NHS in the national psyche and Labour's status as its natural protector, they would arguably be foolish to do anything else.

Ukraine steels itself for winter as Novorossiya forges ahead

Ukraine steels itself for winter as Novorossiya forges ahead
Description
Written by Professor Stefan Wolff and Professor Tatyana Malyarenko (Professor of Public Administration at Donetsk State Management University). The EU-Asia Summit in Milan, Italy, delivered little, if any, tangible progress to resolve the crisis in Ukraine.
