82-Year-Old Manhandled, Ejected From Labour Conference After Criticizing "Nonsense" War - Walter Wolfgang, a party member for 57 years, was bundled out of the conference hall by stewards after shouting "nonsense" as Mr Straw, the Foreign Secretary, defended Britain's role in Iraq.

Inside the secretive Bilderberg Group - How much influence do private networks of the rich and powerful have on government policies and international relations? One group, the Bilderberg, has often attracted speculation that it forms a shadowy global government.

The Bush spinmeisters' Kabuki dance with Patrick Fitzgerald. - Dick Cheney recently had surgery on two aneurysms behind his knees, thus taking him out of the public spotlight more than is the usual case.
