I started my medical training in Germany more than 20 years ago and after a short placement in the UK I knew I wanted to work here permanently. As a GP working in the NHS, I thought that would always be the case, but the increasingly negative rhetoric surrounding Brexit has made me question my future here.
This week we've learned from the government's leading Brexiteer, David Davis, that the UK will be putting British jobs and living standards at risk for nothing more than the illusion of 'taking back control' of our borders.
Until the party are able to present to the electorate a coherent, attractive and gaffe-free plan, they are in serious danger of returning to the political wilderness. The current landscape is being shaped almost solely by an ascendant Conservative Party, leaving Nuttall with a lot of work to do if he is to stop his party from descending into irrelevance.
It is possible to build an alternative without pandering to discriminatory, backwards and racist ideas. As an experienced anti-racist campaigner, Trevor Phillips should know better. Meanwhile the snowflakes will continue to build a movement for a society that enables freedom and liberty for all, not just the privileged few.
It's a Brit Awards special in the newest edition of 'Into It', and we had plenty to say about this year's ceremony. As well as checking back on our predictions from last week to see how correct we were, we reflect on Robbie Williams' Brits Icon victory, and suggest ways producers can improve for next year. Plus, diversity was such a hot topic in the lead-up to the Brits, did the show itself really reflect that? Spoiler alert: no, no it did not.
Will you join me on my rocket trip to the constellation Aquarius? Or should we stay put and hope the current political spasm will pass? After all, Ukip didn't win the Stoke by-election, so maybe that spasm has already passed. On the other hand, Labour lost in Copeland, so its long slide into oblivion continues. Conclusion? I'm on my way to the inter-stellar ticket office. See you there.
This is without doubt a bitter end to the most wonderful story this modest city has ever seen. Leicester's charming Roman conqueror has fallen, but this is our club and our fairytale - so, Jose Mourinho, Gary Lineker, Hozier and whoever else who thinks we're now the bad guys - save your crocodile tears and your national funeral for somebody else.
I never really thought of myself as someone who suffers from OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder). I mean, I do weird things like never walk on the pavement cracks, run back to the kettle before it boils and clicks off and always have to beat the person walking behind me to the next lamp-post, but everyone does that right?
While there's nothing wrong with being naturally slim and tall, it's not representative of what our society looks like, leading to greater anxiety and fear among people of not being able to live up to what's considered beautiful.
This is an opportunity for any discriminated-against community, and the good news is that STEM jobs are projected to grow at skyrocketing rates in the coming years. According to research, the UK will need almost 1.3 million STEM professionals by 2020, but universities and colleges are only graduating around 71,000 STEM students each year.
This week's Commons People sees the team wondering if Labour has gone too far with its campaigns on the NHS, after saying "babies will die" if the Tories win in Copeland. Theresa May is facing trouble from her backbenchers over business rates, and is also under scrutiny over what she knew about former Guantanamo Bay detainee who was awarded £1million compensation before becoming a suicide bomber in Iraq. There is the usual amazing quiz - no, seriously - and the crucial In Case You Missed It.
Within a split second everything had changed and suddenly gunfire echoed along the beach. People were screaming in terror and running in a desperate panic to find safety. Nobody really knows how to react when terror hits.
As I left Westminster Hall, with the chant, 'Macron, Présidente!' ringing in my ears, I proudly grasped my EU flag whilst walking past Parliament, and once again felt what I had felt before last year's setbacks - inspired by politics - inspired by the possibility politics brings, let's all keep our fingers crossed and hope he pulls this off - En Marché !
Ridding the world of gender inequality will, I believe, curb the increase in intimate abuse. I want to live in a world where no one is shamed because of their body, the money they earn or their perceived gender. The Istanbul Convention is the vehicle for tackling gender inequality, and that's why I support it.
I didn't know it was World Mental Health day when I booked a rare GP appointment last autumn. I found out later, after I'd emerged from my ten allotted minutes with the clock-watching locum, clutching a prescription for Citalopram and feeling surprisingly peaceful at having finally said it out loud...
How do you comfort someone whose world is in the process of spinning off its axis? You want to be supportive but when you open your mouth you realise you have NO IDEA what to say so just blurt something out and hope for the best but worry the whole drive home that you offended them.
Hike up the contrast; toothbrush the dark areas; make it bright, brighter, brighter still until you have to turn down the brightness on your phone display because it hurts your eyes to look at. You've got to blind your followers with your ultra-luxe life. Make them swoon. Make them envy you. A whole 623 people are counting on you to do this. Don't stop now.
It is easy to see the benefits of biometrics as a supplement, and perhaps even a replacement, to traditional identification measures. Biometric factors of identity cannot be lost or forgotten, they are things that everyone carries around with them at all times
Diversity is the buzzword in everything from workshops to expos and conferences and everything in-between, but what about in the workplace? It's all too easy to get execs to give talks and bold statements or host glitzy awards about the importance of diversity and yet it's still so difficult to find actual examples of growth and success.
Sleep deprivation will twist your feelings and muddy your thoughts like nothing else. I figured I forced her existence by having IVF and that my selfish need to be a mum was being punished. But it wasn't just me being punished, it was Paul too but mostly and worst of all, it was Elin. They were categorically the worst few months of my life.
While Trump may ramble incoherently and speak in sentences usually associated with kindergarten, his vocabulary is the subject of much global discussion. Consider the newly popular words (including "tremendous") we're all throwing about with abandon.
Labour must now focus on the longer term. The referendum was a Tory ruse to deal with splits in their own ranks. They never expected Leave to win and made no plans for it. Labour must hold the Government to account throughout the Brexit negotiations, but we must not to let the Tories misrepresent this as wrecking tactics they can blame for their inevitable failures... In politics you win by owning tomorrow not yesterday. The referendum is over and Brexit is going to happen on terms dictated by the Tory parliamentary majority because Labour lacks the votes to change it. So we should now focus on a more positive vision of what Brexit could be.
