Having barely scraped back into Downing Street after fighting one of the dirtiest election campaigns in British political history, the Cameron cabinet is now putting the final touches on a Queen's speech that is likely to unveil one of the most radical - and dangerous - agendas that any government has sought to push through in decades. Now that the Tories are off the leash, the rights we take for granted every day - rights to privacy and free speech included - are under threat. Repealing the Human Rights Act and threatening to withdraw from the ECHR could well be nothing more than a warm-up act.
Let's keep firmly focused on the need to bring perpetrators of massacres like Houla to justice. The UK has a long-standing commitment to accountability for atrocities committed in the Syrian conflict. This commitment will not falter. That is the message from the Houla massacre: the need for justice and accountability. Not the perverted logic of sectarianism.
Children and new born babies have been hit hardest. We estimate that the lives of almost 18,000 mothers and babies could be at risk, unless urgent action is taken to restore healthcare systems. In addition, the latest statistics show that around twelve babies are being born every hour without access to basic healthcare.
Like Thatcher, Furiosa is an honorary man, proving the success of one woman does not mean the liberation of all. Rather than demonstrating the potential for strong women, Furiosa and the Vuvalini, like Thatcher, are decisively 'other' - more akin to an alien race than a relateable womanhood.
Summer's on the way and it's time to make the most of our beautiful strawberries. I'm not going to suggest you serve them with black pepper. I'm not going to suggest you drizzle them in balsamic. I'm just not in approval of going in that direction...
As a young person living with a parent who has a terminal diagnosis, I've discovered a fairly considerable hole in the people-dying-support-system stuff. There is a lot of support out there for children with a close family member who is dying; there is a fair amount of support for spouses and for parents of people who are dying.
Personally I think this parenting gig is a whole lot tougher if you don't have Mummy Friends. Whatever life stage you are at you tend to feel better when you have people you can turn to who get where you are coming from because they are in the same situation as you.
YouTube has brought us videos of cats and dogs, re-runs of classic TV shows and established the A-list stars of our generation. It has brought world events into our living rooms and onto our phones at the touch of a button. It will be exciting to see how the platform evolves over the next 10 years; I have no doubt that it will continue to change the way we watch, learn and interact with the world around us. Happy Birthday, YouTube.
I wouldn't be the person who I am today without Nouse and I suspect a lot of people who were a part of it in the past wouldn't be where they are now without it either. I'm indebted to Nouse and extremely grateful for the opportunities it's given me. That's why I'm so keen for our fundraising to be a success.
We won't win 2020 through speeches or dinners in Westminster, we'll win in the sports halls and living rooms, offices and canteens, working men's clubs and school gates across the country. And I want this debate - about our party, our country - to be as wide and as engaging as possible. That means as many people as possible involved in the leadership election, not just a closed down or polarised contest... This is a real turning point for the Labour Party and the country - a do or die moment. No one should be giving up on a Labour Government in 2020. I'm determined we can win again. And this leadership election - focused on the future - must be the start of making that happen.
These plans do nothing but illustrate the government's lack of compassion, lack of perspective and ultimately their lack of will to genuinely address the economic anxieties of the people of Britain... This is a victory only for ignorance - a victory of rhetoric over logic, of posturing over compassion. It is a victory for those who seek to demonise immigrants, who seek to pull up Britain's drawbridge and banish diversity from our society.
Opponents of Europe and defenders of the status quo alike will seek to keep this issue out of the hands of young people. But if this referendum is to truly settle the question of Europe for our generation, they must be enfranchised.
As a parent of a young child myself, I have to remind myself not to panic. If my conversations over the past 18 years with Place2Be's team of counsellors and therapists have taught me one thing, it's that it's never too early or too late to start thinking about your child's mental health.
I would like to wish 28-year-old Polina Gagarina the best of luck, however she will not be receiving my support, and I hope this will be the case for many fellow LGBT viewers across Europe. The Eurovision song contest may be just that, a singing competition, but it is a platform that celebrates diversity and gives a voice to so many voiceless groups in our continent.
With a ticket to the Premier League now worth £120million a season, thinking with a clear head is always going to be difficult for those pulling the strings at our clubs - but that's why Leicester deserve a pat on the back for their handling of Pearson.
It wasn't just the total lack of confidence I had in my ability, I was also plagued with concerns about how I looked when I ran. Gym kit can feel particularly exposing and I found it very easy to worry that people would see me running and think "look at that larger lady running".
The spa at Kamalaya is set amongst an abundance of nature. Treatment rooms are little thermoses overlooking the beach. Evening treatments are a bonus as they allow you to watch the sun set over the ocean just as you open your weary eyes to reality again. Kamalaya's main focus is on your mind, body and soul.
Viewers were dreading Sansa Stark's marriage to sociopathic Ramsey Bolton, and their fears were justified. This plot twist deviated from the books, in which Sansa's best friend, Jeyne Poole - masquerading as her sister, Arya - marries Bolton. It has sparked outrage, after Bolton was seen raping Sansa on their wedding night.
All families with disabled children have huge mountains to climb and we face continuous barriers and endless challenges to clear a path for our disabled child to belong in society, to belong in our communities and to be valued so they can live a full life: enjoy friendships, a social life, a job, go to college, have their dreams and aspirations supported.
Had this violence taken place in the UK, the contestants would almost certainly be facing cruelty charges and, potentially, time in prison for the suffering they inflicted on these terrified animals.
The Dutch are a contented lot, but it's not tulip fields and clogs that are keeping them happy. Over in the Netherlands they've worked out the ways to make life for themselves just that little bit better.
The agitation and restlessness that can follow switching a smartphone off, which is punishing to witness, does look very similar to withdrawal symptoms as the individual struggles with the disconnection from 'the stream'.
