This week, the Tories meet in Manchester, safe in the knowledge that all the serious political opposition in this country appears to have been wiped out. Well, I suppose you can call that some kind of achievement. You could even call it "kinder politics". As long as by "kind" you mean a sincere desire to wash your hands of all responsibility, and power.

Poison did not so much trickle out of the mouths of the commentariat this weekend. It gushed. Within hours of his victory in the Labour Party leadership contest , Jeremy Corbyn had been branded a "leftist Utopian, not fit for the real world."

America's not the only place where the party of the Left is swinging toward the progressive wing of the party.

The Telegraph might be withholding emails related to a ridiculous smear campaign to label Labour politicians as pedophiles: yet another example of the Telegraph pandering to its friends in the Conservative government.

Confidence can be very nice, but when you go to see a brain surgeon, you care an awful lot more about skill. If Ed Miliband has the skills to run a country, he certainly hasn't shown it.

The Boko Haram pattern of behavior makes it all the more important that the safe schools initiative launched by Nigerian business leaders last week gets off the ground quickly. While Boko Haram are a small extremist faction with limited demographic reach, it will take a tougher approach to school security and safety to reassure girls' parents and teachers that their school in the northern states is safe enough to attend. That is why foreign governments are now offering financial support for security guards and for proper fortifications and security equipment to give any school threatened by a terrorist attack the best possible chance of surviving it intact.
