Recall would strengthen the link between an MP and their constituents, which is at the heart of our representative democracy. Real recall would mean MPs who are involved in serious misconduct, fail to represent their constituents (think Nadine Dorries or George Galloway ditching the Commons for reality TV), switch parties without triggering a by-election or break electoral promises could face recall if enough of their constituents demand it.
I am a North Korean defector who escaped the hardship of the region in 2007. Korea has remained in the media spotlight in recent weeks due to the unprecedented disappearance, and reappearance, of leader Kim Jong-un. Countless people have spoken about the missing dictator, but very little attention is being focused on the invisible victims of the Kim regime...
Allying with Assad would be worse than poor strategy; it would be morally unacceptable to anyone with an ounce of decency, and to anyone with the slightest stake in identifying and punishing his crimes.
I had the distinct privilege of being asked to be a best man recently and was absolutely touched that Justin thought of me in such high regard so I was determined to repay his faith by at least getting my first and arguably the most important job right, arranging the stag. How hard could it be to round up our closest buddies, decide where to go and how to do it and send JJ off in style?
You call in sick with a moderate physical ailment, because it's easier to tell your boss you have a migraine/food poisoning/the flu than go into the intricacies of something you may not understand yourself. Have you ever been told to 'be strong' or 'get over it' by someone who just can't fathom the incorporeal nature of what's affecting your life?
The first time it happened I was running on a busy street and three men in a white van beeped their horn and yelled something about my 'tight ass' as I crossed their path. I felt the heat rising to my face and a stab of anger in the pit of my stomach, but I thought 'whatever, they're just sad old men who don't know how to talk to women', I flipped them the bird and upped my pace.
We are left with the responsibility to carry the task through, but Efua has paved the way. Efua was loved like few people I've known and she has changed the lives of more girls than would ever come to know her. She will be greatly missed and the thoughts of all of us are with her family.
More and more, I believe parenting experts and childcare gurus are a scourge on modern mums, with a combination of one-size-fits all, conflicting advice that creates expectations that we - and certainly our babies - can never live up to. This leads to guilt, anxiety or, in my case, even depression as I felt I was failing at the most important job I have ever done.
Hard work should be rewarded with fair pay. While a debate may be rumbling on between government and UK businesses about what constitutes fair pay when it comes to setting the bar for the minimum wage, there is still much that we can do as individual companies to encourage and nurture young talent...
Whether a striker of the required calibre becomes available in January - let alone whether Chairman Levy will be inclined to make the necessary investment - remains to be seen. But if they do find someone capable of finishing the chances the creative department are increasingly serving up, this could yet turn out to be a very good season for Tottenham.
Despite Evans' persistent protests of his innocence, the fact remains: he is a convicted rapist. He has the right to a second chance and the right to make a living, but there are plenty of roles in football he could return to - the prestige of playing in front of thousands shouldn't be one of them. Welcoming him back with open arms will alienate a huge demographic of fans and undermine the plight of the 85,000 women who are raped annually, and the 400,000 who are sexually assaulted. That Evan's spent three years incarcerated, 'paying his debt', does not change the fact his victim will bear the scars for life.
With the possibility that the Chibok girls will go free soon, we must intensify our efforts for the wider global goal that every girl has the chance to be at school, safe and free from violence.
Encouraging the Palestinians to accede to the ICC, which they have been eligible to do since attaining Observer State status at the UN in 2012, would introduce an accountability mechanism that would deter future violence. It would also provide an incentive for each side to stay at the negotiating table.
There were violent clashes, scuffles and brawls in the Mong Kok district of Hong Kong last night as police deployed pepper spray and batons against pro-democracy protesters. Police say 9000 demonstrators were present and 26 people were arrested.
Last Thursday evening the unbelievable happened. An awards ceremony took place in the House of Commons for body confidence. No need for a red carpet or pomp and circumstance. No male politicians driving agendas to win elections. Just a group of individuals of all shapes and sizes, fighting for the right for us all 'to be ourselves'...
So is he really worth it all?... If Rooney continues to score it will remain tough to drop him, but if his performances continue to wane his managers' hands may well be forced.
It's not a decision for everyone, and I still know lots of people who love the site. But maybe this has given you something to think about next time you find yourself upset over something you've seen. Or when you realise that you've wasted an entire evening comparing yourself to the people from school that you really don't care about any more.
Stress is normal - and something that is experienced by everyone, no matter how relaxed they may seem on the outside. It is however how we manage and control our stress that separates us from each other...
With just two wins from the opening seven games, Dortmund desperately need to turn their form around as soon as possible. However, the personnel at Klopp's disposal must help in their quest to shorten the 10-point gap between themselves and Bayern, starting with Ramos and Immobile...
I thought I'd have a go at making an easy Crème Pat without the stress. I've figured it out and it works so well. This recipe I made at the weekend for the family and it is full of lovely middle eastern flavouring such as orange blossom, almonds and figs.
Arms sales are not apolitical acts. On one hand, they bolster the buyers by giving them a British endorsement as a fig-leaf of respectability, but they also buy the UK government's political support and compliance. As the crackdown continues to escalate it is becoming increasingly clear that decisions being made in support of arms sales are having serious consequences for the victims of state repression.
In many ways, Michael Vick represents the best of the justice system. He committed horrifying crimes, served his time, reclaimed his lost career, fortune and integrity, and changed himself after coming to terms with the wrongs of the life he was living.
