The Week That Was: Resignations and Regrets

| Posted 02.04.2012 | UK

We shouldn't forget, in both the Terry and Huhne cases, that in the eyes of the law neither has been proven guilty yet, both are protesting their innocence and both could be reinstated in their positions of authority before the summer is out. However, one thing was made very clear this week: no matter how large your pay cheque, how important your position, or how many fans cheer your name from the stands on a Saturday afternoon, slip up and be prepared to face the consequences.

The Week That Was: Leveson

It's not every week that you find yourself part of the news you're usually reporting, but on Wednesday, rather than watching the Leveson Inquiry, I was in front of it instead.

The Week That Was: Work Experience on Trial

| Posted 02.25.2012 | UK

It was a week of small victories for the Right to Work campaign, starting last weekend with the temporary closure of a small Tesco store in Westminster that had been encircled by its protestors, continuing with the supermarket chain's subsequent decision to pay people on the government's controversial (as it must now seemingly always be prefixed) Get Britain Working programme, and ending with Burger King deciding to pull out of the scheme altogether.
