The Statesman on Michael Howard. Also an interesting article in The Times about the implications of him being Jewish should he become prime minister (hope not, *shudder*).

Indian news reporting often seems to use a very odd idiom to my British-English speaking brain. I just ran across the Statesman article in Google News, but I'd noticed the idiom in the past.

Google News is a Good Thing for finding non-British reporting of local stories, and also checking news reports on things that have fallen off the front pages.
