St Andrews, Carnoustie and Donald Trump’s Doonbeg: The golf courses gasping for breath against...

What if the world’s greatest golf courses steadily began to disappear? A vanishing act along the historic East Lothian way, a slow-motion mudslide from dune to ocean, fairways skidding inch-by-inch into the North Sea bed.  Coastal erosion, caused by rising sea levels and increasingly temperamental currents, has already claimed the celebrated 2nd and 3rd tees…

Brexiteer Tory MP caught in extraordinary confrontation during BBC interview: ‘I’m not a snowflake’

A Conservative Brexiteer MP has been called a “liar” and a “traitor” during an extraordinary exchange with a Leave supporter during a television interview.

Heseltine’s Lib Dem switch is just the start – the moderate wing of the Tory party is about to unravel

Heseltine’s Lib Dem switch is just the start – the moderate wing of the...

If the basic inability of fans to just get to Baku for a showpiece European final should have caused reconsideration of the whole event, the fact Henrikh Mkhitaryan will not be there because of the political context should be a tipping point.

Why Israel has been silent amid growing US-Iran tensions

Reports that Israeli missiles pounded targets near Damascus in Syria were literally drowned out by the singing and dancing of the Eurovision finals in Tel Aviv.

They’re calling it the revenge of the Turkey Twizzlers. The news that Jamie Oliver’s restaurant group has gone into administration has lit up the Twittersphere with jokes that the highly-processed foods – banned from school dinners, thanks in part to the 2005 series Jamie’s School Dinners – has had the last laugh. But with a…
