Do you want my alternative, semi-serious take on the Ukip 'Calypso song'; their new Holocaust-denying ally in Europe; and Obama's coolness versus Cameron's coolness? Here's the political week in 60 seconds.
I find Gwyneth Paltrow's goop website a bit weird or Donny Osmond's wig on last weeks Strictly Come Dancing, but feminism itself? If indeed there is something unnatural or unearthly about this so-called 'crossroads' we hashtag-feminists are tweeting at, is it right to finger-blame an entire movement? I'm not sure that it is, really.
GamerGate has become an online movement that has spawned a torrent of despicable behaviour, despite what it first set out to achieve. Equality and freedom are virtues that every human being should have and live for. I fail to understand why anyone would abuse someone for simply believing they should have the same rights as everyone else.
Terrorism and the media have a symbiotic relationship, without attention a terrorist act remains confined to it's immediate victims. However, with the oxygen of publicity from the media and with intention of sating public demand for information and sales, this coverage can actually result in effective propaganda for the perpetrators of such acts.
If English football wants to maintain even the tiniest shred of moral high ground, then Ched Evans cannot come back into the professional game yet. And shame on the desperate club who'll inevitably try to sign him.
The political class in this country are not in it to serve you. They are not in it to give back to their country. They are not in it to improve life for the ordinary hardworking people of this country. No. They believe that they have a right to rule, and they think that anything they do to stay in power is alright.
You're also right to be irritated by the cost of public transport. It's impossible to justify the perpetual rises, unless of course it turns out the fuel it all runs on is unicorn blood.Don't bother with trying cycling instead, it's too suicidey. Here are the real potential solutions...
I just don't think Amazon can live up to its own expectations when it comes to the bricks and mortar store. Amazon has perfected the art of ecommerce, taking away the risk of buying stuff online, and making it seamless, accessible, and low priced. While it does ecommerce exceptionally well, retail experience it does not.
With the 2014 Four Nations starting on Saturday with a double header of England vs Samoa and world champions Australia vs New Zealand at Suncorp Stadium it feels as good a time as any to have a look at some of the players to keep an eye out for over the next four weeks.
Northern Ireland is the only place in the UK where abortion is still illegal in the most extreme circumstances of rape, fatal foetal abnormality and incest.
If we are going to go ahead with spending tens of billions on High Speed Two then at the very least we need to be sure that we are getting the best value for money and ensuring that the maximum benefit is felt, both for the economy and for the people in cities such as Stoke-on-Trent. The proposals as they stand fail to meet any of these criteria and this should be to the utter shame of all those involved.
There's six years between my sister Ella and I. Me being the older, sceptical, less wiser of the two.
She flies to Australia for six months on the 20 November and for obvious reasons this is going to BREAK MY HEART... she can't go, she just can't...
Facebook recently released a fairly astounding statistic - the social networking behemoth has passed1 billion video views a day. So what does it mean for publishers like the Huffington Post? Is it worth missing out on click-throughs by uploading directly onto Facebook rather than a link to our site?
Files discovered recently by campaigners, and brought to my attention, reveal that, in 1967, a Paediatrician at Queen Mary's Hospital in London, Dr. Isabel Gal, found a link between Hormone Pregnancy Tests such as Primodos, and spinal congenital malformation in newborn babies.
Returning to Britain, I joined another band and hey presto, two of the members were Swedish. Perplexingly we never got round to playing a gig in their home country, but we did manage to all go to a wedding in Stockholm which is the first and only time I've ever seen a wedding cake being thrown across a dancefloor. It ended up, quite literally, in the best man's face.
With the money brought in from selling Luke Shaw, Calum Chambers, Adam Lallana and the rest, Southampton could easily have made at least one big name signing. Much like Angel Di Maria's arrival at Old Trafford, it would have settled a few anxious nerves and signalled their intention to not let the loss of their manager and key players deter them after an excellent year.
Where is the urgency? In those five years, how many hundreds of thousands of young people will have their career aspirations crushed, simply because they can't afford to work for free?
The new Rembrandt exhibition at the National Galley is not only an extraordinary collection of works from this great artist, but also incredibly moving.
Just four months ago, Bart started The Shortest Cookery Show on Earth on instagram. Cramming exciting recipes, shot in striking locations (in the middle of the Wadden Sea, on a house-boat in Amsterdam, on an Alaskan ice-plain, in a fishing boat off the Maldives) into just 15-seconds - we're not squidding!
Charleston, South Carolina, is unquestionably one of the most beautiful cities in North America. The restaurant scene is fantastic too. But the winner for me, by a country mile, was Aluette's Holistic Soulfood Café. It looks very much like any other soul food place you might wander into, but here the produce is guaranteed seasonal, fresh and local.
Intimate partner violence is terrifyingly common among young people, and in society as a whole, with an average of two women a week killed by a partner or former partner in England and Wales. Yet it is denied, and victims are blamed and suffer an average of 35 violent incidents before seeking help.
Over 200,000 care workers, the people entrusted to look after our elderly and disabled, are regularly being paid less than the National Minimum Wage (NMW) £6.50 an hour. Over 200,000 people, doing some of the most vital and important work in our society, are the victims of a crime which causes poverty and leads to untold pain and misery for our care users.
