|UK Monarchy: How Relevant?|
the flag-waving and the street parties to celebrate the marriage
of Prince William and Kate Middleton on Friday, bigger questions
about the relevance of the monarchy to modern Britain lurk like
uninvited guests. Extravagant living in a time of austerity
abrades public sensibilities; unearned privilege is resented,
while snobbery and elitism are seen as dangerously outmoded.
|THE PRICE OF
|COL Moamar Qadhafi is a vain man. Like
the other Arab dinosaurs he has his dyed hair, his designer
shades, his spoiled children and his compound full of sycophants.
He doesn´t want, one day, to be dragged from a rat hole
like Saddam Hussein or hauled from a bunker like the Ivory Coast´s
Laurent Gbagbo. So what´s his calculation? Does he have
one at all? Here in liberated eastern Libya, where the tricolour
Qadhafi banished now flies...

in Indian Open final |

Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia on Saturday

|Baines´ spot-kick foils Wigan´s survival bid |
Athletic remain mired in the Premier
League relegation zone after Leighton
Baines´ late penalty rescued a
1-1 draw for Everton against his former
club on Saturday. Charles N´Zogbia
gave Wigan the lead in the 21st minute
at the DW Stadium and Everton´s
Mikel Arteta then had a penalty saved
by Ali Al Habsi. Wigan came close to
extending its lead on several occasions
but a handball by Hugo Rodallega enabled
Baines to draw the Toffees level from
the penalty spot 12 minutes from full-time.
With three games of the season remaining,
Wigan are third-bottom in the table

|Sehwag stars in Delhi´s easy win over Kochi |
Sehwag hit a rollicking half-century
as Delhi Daredevils scored a 38-run
win over Kochi Tuskers Kerala to keep
its play-offs hopes alive in the Indian
Premier League in Kochi on Saturday.
Sehwag blazed his way to a 47-ball 80
to lead his side to a competitive 157
for seven after electing to bat on a
very difficult track, which had uneven
bounce. Delhi was gasping 37 for three
at one stage but Sehwag played sensibly
as he first guarded his wicket when
his teammates were vanishing from the
other end and then played his usual
aggressive self. The visitors then bowled
out the hosts for 119 in 18.5 overs
to record a much-needed win as they
were languishing at...
