It will take a few years, but those few years are also needed for Britain's progressive forces to regroup and rebuild a political movement capable of governing and leading Britain back to the EU. And hopefully a similar restoration of sanity - based on reality - can occur in the US.
I can't get you better pay or more invaluable hours of support from a teaching assistant. I can't even help with the mountains of paperwork under which you are surely drowning - sorry! But I can show my gratitude - to you and to all teachers, and teaching assistants, who give so much to the children they teach.
Overall, Lord Sugar was an excellent boss. Why? Because he explained the goal of the task clearly at the beginning of each week, and then he gave us performance reviews in the board room based on how well we reached his targets.
I adopted the kneeling position for accuracy, slowed down my breathing, did a quick estimate of distance, the wind, and adjusted my rifle aim accordingly. I then put a small amount of pressure on the trigger
Across the political spectrum the homeless tend to be treated as passive recipients, whether of abuse or pity. While bad housing and welfare policy are creating more homelessness, it is often the critics of these policies that are creating homeless victims.
We must look at climate change mitigation - all indicators are that we can expect more severe weather and warmer temperatures in the coming decades. But mitigation is no substitute for actually tackling the problem.
And today, as conflicts and crises rage around the world, it's disabled children in affected areas who are among those most at risk. Often the first to be left behind and the last to have their needs met in chaotic emergency situations, children with disabilities face unprecedented adversity in conflicts.
Our country needs to heal. And this was a vote for hope. Hope that we can be so much better than a country which looks inwards, turns its back on those who need help the most, and elects politicians who pursue policies of divide and rule. We can, and we must, put our differences aside and work together for the good of our country because when we do, that is when we will see real change. The result in Richmond Park has shown both that a new politics is possible - and that we can make it happen.
We will tackle the populists head on, because not only do they seek to divide, they make empty promises they cannot possibly deliver and then threaten western liberal democratic values when they fail. Together let's move Europe forward and ensure it works for everyone.
Despite the warnings about the secrecy, the impossible timetables and the financial imperatives surrounding these plans the Government seem determined to press ahead with them. When the plan for your area is released the questions outlined above might be ones you want to ask your local "STP lead" about.
The people who have the strongest desire for power tend to be the most ruthless and least compassionate individuals. And once they possess power, they usually devote themselves to entrenching, increasing and protecting their power, with scant regard for the welfare of others.
I could reel off many statistics, but I'll just include one from the Office for National Statistics, at the current rate, it will be another 62 years before the work of women in the UK is valued at the same rate as men. Sixty-two years. The year 2078. Let that sink in. I'll be long gone, as will you, probably.
Long gone are the old days of former pros who've 'been there' as a player stepping into the dugout. Management at the highest level is no longer the closed shop it once was. Bradley is a career coach and a keen student of the game who took his first job at the age 23. You can't dismiss all that experience and knowledge because of where he comes from and how he talks.
Almost every day brings stories of violence against women - from partners at home, sexual abuse and mutilation, and tragic suffering in ravaged communities and war zones. One in three women suffers violence, often from those closest to them, and it takes many forms.
Where did all the clubs go? One minute there is a vibrant underground club scene and the next, seemingly, it's vanished, in what felt like seconds. Take London as an example. Every district had it's very own club legends and legendary clubs, from the West End to Walthamstow.
In our own post-industrial condition, such inward domesticity has begun to appear especially attractive, and assumed an increasingly nostalgic character. Its legacy is still felt in Nordic architecture and design, which largely eschews the monumental in favour of a more human sense of size and shape.
For me, the diagnosis was a relief, for it accorded with the maxim "know thyself" - and, for any human being, this is a fundamental part of life's journey. As time goes on, I have begun to see bipolar not so much as an affliction, confined to a certain, unfortunate percentile of the population, but as something that lies in the further reaches of conscious experience.
Then there are the death knell closing statements such as, 'I've seen that wrapping paper in the under stairs cupboard so is Father Christmas real or is it just you and daddy?' This is the final option for our guilty plea before the dread accusation - and we know it's coming - 'Why did you lie?'
Has the tide turned? Is Sarah Olney the harbinger of a bright new dawn, a better future? Not so fast, my friend, not so fast... The Lib Dems' grande dame Shirley Williams claimed on the eve of the Richmond Park poll that a Lib Dem win would 'change the political weather', just as her victory in Crosby did 35 years ago. I'd love to think she was right. But at least the result should strengthen the resolve of those who want to slow the rush to a Brexit disaster. The battle has only just begun.
Post-referendum we have witnessed increased levels of physical and verbal violence as well as acts of vandalism towards EU nationals and other minorities living in the UK. Disturbing as these events are it is important to note that the Polish community also received great support and many acts of kindness from the British community. Politicians, community leaders and ordinary citizens voiced their shock and horror as well as assured us that it Britain is open to all.
"That's all very good, but what about the jobs?" It's an argument that campaigners inevitably come across when debating Trident or arms exports to oppressive regimes. It's not limited to the usual suspects either, it comes from all angles; including the trade unions, the media and politicians from all parties.
Well here I was playing golf with a group of men and women who hit one another with a constant flow of humorous below the belt banter and it started to occur to me that whilst I don't want to be their age just yet, I really liked being in their company.
