Seemingly starved of upbeat, positive things to write about, the British press looked to Venice this week and its A-list-littered film festival. Not, of course, that every article filed from the red carpets was positive.

Cameron Needs to Tread Carefully in the Aftermath of Libya

James Dwyer | Posted 31.10.2011 | UK Politics
James Dwyer

Whilst he can certainly be pleased with the fact an undeniably evil dictator is gone, there are a whole host of problems - at home and abroad - that now need to be addressed.
