Ed Miliband to pledge rise in NHS spending
Labour leader Ed Miliband will pledge to increase spending on the NHS in England in his party conference speech on Tuesday, the BBC understands.
He will say a "mansion tax" on homes worth more than £2m will help pay for the extra funding.
Labour is currently refusing to comment on what it describes as "speculation".
The party has yet to spell out details of how its mansion tax would work. It could raise around £1.7bn a year, the Institute of Fiscal Studies (IFS) says.
It is likely the party could allocate at least another £1bn a year to the NHS from other tax rises it has already announced.
Constitutional change: The debate starts here
There has never been a day in politics like this one.
A vote to reject massive constitutional change in one part of the UK has triggered a debate about just that in every part of it.
The people have spoken. But it's not over
The people have spoken. Scotland has rejected independence. The result has been accepted by both sides. So that, you might think, is that. Not a bit of it.
The fact that more than 1.5m British citizens voted not to remain part of the UK, the fact that a majority in Scotland's biggest city - Glasgow - backed independence, the fact that the Westminster establishment briefly thought this vote was lost, is the reason for that.
Brown calls for three 'guarantees' for Scotland
Gordon Brown is calling for three "guarantees" for Scotland to be "locked in" before voting takes place in the referendum on Thursday.
In a speech in Edinburgh later he will call for:
Ian Paisley: the Dr No who became Dr Yes
Loved and loathed, admired and feared, the life of the man known simply as "Big Ian" is the story of Northern Ireland's transition from violence to peace.
Some will remember him for a single word - "Never!" - rarely spoken, usually bellowed.
Cameron and Miliband do battle against rising Yes tide
Today we looked at a man who knows that his tombstone may read "the prime minister who presided over the break-up of Britain".
We listened to a man whose voice began to break as he made a plea for Scotland to stay.
Scotland - Yes or No to protect the NHS?
The Unionist parties in Scotland will claim today that they can guarantee that spending on the NHS will not be cut by the next government in Westminster.
They will argue that the new powers they are promising to give the Scottish Parliament in the event of a No vote will allow Holyrood to protect the NHS from another five years of austerity imposed from London.
Scotland - Vote No and get something better?
On the morning after the poll before, "Vote No and get something better" summed up George Osborne's message. It's a tried and trusted message which worked in the independence referendum in Quebec when a last minute poll lead for Yes was transformed into a narrow No. It is, though, a message with a difficult history in Scotland.
Thirty five years ago it was precisely what Scots were told when they were voting in a referendum on a much more modest proposal - to create a Scottish Parliament with some devolved powers.
Nato summit: Could Putin cross more 'red lines'?
For all the displays of military hardware, the promises to stand by Eastern Europe, the pledges to deploy more Nato forces there, it is the use of economic power, which according to Barack Obama and David Cameron has forced Vladimir Putin to back a deal to stop the fighting in Ukraine.
They insist that sanctions, including newly agreed measures targeting state-owned energy and defence companies, will go ahead until talk of a ceasefire is proven on the ground and is followed through with a peace plan that does not include the annexation of parts of Ukraine.
Pressure grows on Cameron amid hostage threat
A British hostage will be next to die. That was the clear and chilling message at the end of the latest horrific video produced by the brutal killers of the so-called "Islamic State".
It will have shocked many but it came as no surprise to the prime minister and his advisers who have long known about and been preparing for this prospect and not to the British media who agreed not to report the matter and have now agreed not to name the British hostage involved.
