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.
Now, more than ever, in a divided world, it is the job of artists, of writers, of TV comedy and drama, not only to entrain us, but to reflect the things happening in our world, on screen. To show us not only what is familiar, but also wildly different.
I am proud of the people across the country who decided to get involved in something like this for the first time, of the British born people people, migrants and refugees who organised events and activities across the country, and the people who came out to support them.
Love or loathe Coldplay, Chris Martin remains one of the leading singer-songwriters of his generation, just like George - someone else who whose pop impulses are underpinned with the always authentic need to express and share.
In this vlog for HuffPost UK Taylor-Stone discusses the need for all members of the LGBT community to tackle racism and misogyny, and stop erasing the history of black women who helped found the movement.
This is what it has come to: young asylum seekers and refugees are now having to beg the government not to turn their backs on desperate children children. "We are the lucky ones - the ones that got here safely. And each of us has a voice. We use our voice now to say this: please don't put the lives of young refugees like us at risk," they plead to the Prime Minister.
At birth, my parents were told I would not be able to attend a mainstream school and were given lists of the things that my visual impairment would prevent me from doing. Nobody ever suggested that there'd be ample Hollywood career opportunities to play an evil albino monk in the Da Vinci Code and certainly nobody dreamed I'd end up as a doctor working for the NHS.
I like who I am. I am my mother's daughter and I see flashes of her every time I look at my photographs. Yes I have inherited a wobble of the upper arm but I'm also blessed with strong, poker straight, natural coloured hair; trouble free skin and good teeth. I've learned that good posture, the art of bothering and wearing the right colours transform me. Some would say these are tricks of the eye - I would agree.
I'm not an advocate of criminal damage or vandalism. I'd also like to think I'm above the whole 'an eye for an eye' thing. But when a woman is accosted or grabbed by a stranger, does that not also constitute vandalism and violence?
I find it funny that I spend so much time researching how to get my baby to sleep through the night (or even more than one hour at a time), how to entertain my bored toddler, how to get them to eat more than bread and cheese, and how to stop breastfeeding. But so much of my parenting expectations are set by society.
Last week, the BBC aired a potentially ground-breaking episode of Dragons' Den when sanitary box provider 'DAME' made their show debut. It was huge. Their appearance was set to prove that there is money to be made in women's hygiene products and that it's OK to talk about periods. That's pretty amazing. Only it wasn't, at all.
Joseph, not a day passes without me contemplating your future and what life will ultimately hold for you. I know you need me to help you understand, what is very much an alien world to yours.
It is not so much the big innovations that improve life as the countless incremental improvements in quality and usability of products and services. The motor car has continually become safer, more connected and more fuel efficient over the years. We currently have significant problems with pollution, traffic accidents and congestion.
The past week or so in Copeland has seen a Labour campaign that has made me angry and sad in equal measure. To see a mainstream political party - a party I respected - run a campaign quoting from unnamed midwifes saying 'mothers will die, babies will die, babies will be brain damaged' is simply disgusting.
Tonight the music and entertainment industries celebrate one of the biggest nights of the year: The 2017 BRIT Awards. Since the #BRITsSoWhite controversy last year, there has been much discussion around the measures that have been taken to address it. Commendably, BPI were among the first to admit that something needed to be done...
Unless the House of Lords is prepared to act, the Government will proceed unhindered on a course of extreme Brexit, for which they have no mandate and which will cause the maximum damage to relations with our European partners, to the economy of our country and to the livelihoods of every single person in it.
I over thought 24/7, seven days per week and felt horrific anxiety and fear. Fear that my husband may be encouraged to switch off my life support machine in the early days. I also suffered severe boredom, sleeplessness - because you slept out of boredom during the day - and experienced graphic hallucinations, that no one warned me or my family about. I was scared shitless of dying, then at other times, I wished I could physically pull the plug on my own life support machine.
Without hyperbole, this really would be a threat to our way of life, replacing the current inadequate system of financial regulation and beleaguered public services with a Wild West of low regulation, low taxation, minimal public services and no questions asked for international finance. Labour will tackle this cancer, even if the Tories won't.
It will be fascinating to see how this by-election plays out, especially in light of a UKIP campaign that seems to be struggling to shake off substantive allegations of its leader and candidate, Paul Nuttall, lying about Hillsborough. It has been a truly dirty campaign of nastiness, desperation and anger on both sides, and as with any by-election the level of turnout will be crucial to the result.
Brexit Bill or no Brexit Bill - the time is now for sorting out our broken, bloated and archaic second chamber.
With thousands of unaccompanied children alone, cold and in danger, the Government must also make arrangements to find unaccompanied children with family links in the UK and assist them through the process of being reunited with their families.
Disabled people enjoy clothes as much as any other human being. Disabled people are fashionable too. From a pair of high shoes, a tight fitted dress, a pop of bright coloured lipstick - to a designer handbag - fashion and beauty makes us feel good. When you feel good, you look good. Confidence is everything and we could all do with an extra boost of confidence. Fashion and beauty really is for every BODY.
