Callum is a seventeen year-old college student with a passion for politics. He makes regular trips to Westminster to report on day to day events in the Commons chamber. He is an obsessive user of social media, blogging and tweeting on the latest political developments in Britain and around the world.
In the digital age, over a million people watched Clegg's tuition fees apology - original or remixed - in four days. If a single lesson can be taken from the Deputy PM's chart success, it's that the power of the internet is not to be underestimated.
As Britain headed to work on a Tuesday morning like any other, Westminster was feeding on its diet of speculation even more than usual. The reshuffle laid bare David Cameron's aims for the rest of the parliament for all to see.
"The Liberal Democrats are currently enjoying a surge of support which they will ride to an impressive victory in 2015", so says nobody. Although commentary of the party's plight in some corners of the press is unnecessarily exaggerated, not even Nick Clegg can deny they're on a bumpy path towards a pretty nasty result at the next election. It's now down to the deputy prime minister to create fork in the road - this week, he got his shovel out.

London's transport swiftly and safely carried over a million people around the capital each day. 70,000 volunteers greeted Olympic visitors with enthusiasm and kindness.

As fireworks lit up the skies and 2011 began, we knew little about the year we were welcoming. Of course, we were preparing for a royal wedding and predicting our chapter of austerity had barely begun. Yet, we had no idea that the global stage would alter so drastically.
Jeremy Clarkson is one of the BBC's most prominent and, admittedly, highest-paid presenters. The One Show is one of the network's most popular programmes, which links it to Clarkson's hit series, Top Gear. Its rivals jumped at the opportunity to denounce the two simultaneously in the same report.
James Murdoch, once a man presumed by all to takeover one of the most powerful media empires on the planet, has been brought to the brink. At 11am on Thursday, he has a chance to turn his luck around. The odds in his favour may be tiny, but his potential gains are colossal.
