A coroner has ruled that neglect contributed to deaths of 5 residents at a West Sussex care home, described as being riddled with "institutionalised abuse". How do we ensure our elderly are better cared for in future?

And after George Osborne's agreement that Chinese companies can take a stake in British nuclear power plants, how welcoming should we be of foreign investment in essential services like energy supply?
