The Week That Was: Great Britain

| Posted 08.11.2012 | UK

As I type this, I should probably be wearing a pair of those cheesy Olympic-five-ring sunglasses, with a fake Union Jack tattoo on my ankle and a cuddly Wenlock tucked under my arm. I'm not, for the record, having just about got my love affair with London 2012 in check, but it's been something of a head vs heart battle... week two of the greatest Olympic games ever (they are, I don't care if it's not cool to say it) has been as brilliant as the first.

The Week That Was: Riot Starters

While Jess sent Sheffield into a riot of fluttering Union Jacks and gold accessories on Friday, hundreds of miles away, three young women paid for their beliefs and courage with a trio of harsh two-year jail sentences handed down by a Russian court. No matter how you look at it, or whichever event has piqued your interest this August, one thing is not in doubt: the summer of 2012 is providing plenty of likely candidates to inspire the next generation.

The Week That Was: Headlines Raped by Men Talking Bullshit

| Posted 08.25.2012 | UK Politics

I don't have a problem with the issue of rape being on the agenda. With conviction rates as low as they are, the more we talk about the issue, the better. I do, on the other hand, have something of an issue with the tragically misinformed opinions being banded about, in the main by people who have absolutely no idea what they are talking about. George Galloway and Todd Atkin, I'm pained to admit, I'm dedicating yet more column inches to your hopelessly ill advised, ill informed streams of garbage.
