Unquestionably, major transformation of the way the UK generates its heat and power is essential... But the long-awaited Community Energy Strategy, published this week by the Department for Energy and Climate Change, represents small steps towards that future at a time when we need giant leaps.

Living Wage Week: Decent Pay Needs to Be a Given, and That Means a Compulsory Living Wage

Natalie Bennett | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Politics
Natalie Bennett

What's been missing in the public debate, and deserves particularly focus in this, Living Wage Week, is the failures of distribution of the wealth of our society that has seen millions left without the means of basic survival; that half a million people are, today, in the sixth-richest country in the world, dependent on food banks, should be considered a driver for major, immediate, change.

Despite getting the Sunderland job, Gus Poyet still has a chance of taking Brighton to the Premier league. Not in a literal sense, obviously (unless there are some drastic changes at both clubs), but in a more figurative, philosophical kind of way...

People Love to Moan But the Fringe Is Here to Stay: All Over the World

Julian Caddy | Posted 05.10.2013 | UK Entertainment
Julian Caddy

Chronically underfunded, defiantly commercial or both, the inherent fragility of fringe festivals has also become their greatest strength. Everyone mucks in and makes do, building a resilience that defies sound logic. As Britain languishes in the doldrums, Brighton Fringe saw ticket sales grow by more than 30% in one year. And it's surely not alone.

The sun is shining in Amsterdam. It's warming up to be a hot weekend in the city of cycling, canals and clogs. But really this heat, this heightened atmosphere and fun-loving spirit have nothing to do with the heat wave's return. It's all because Pride is coming to town.

Terre A Terre, Brighton - Review

Beth Brookfield | Posted 21.09.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Beth Brookfield

Terre A Terre is a wonderful restaurant and a lot of vegetarian restaurants could learn from its creatively - there was not a vegetarian lasagne in sight. The dish names are clever, the presentation is clever and the food is more than clever. I would definitely recommend it, whether you are vegetarian or not.

Tips for the Heat

I am not coping well with the heat. I am dewy, swollen and weak. As I can, I am recording my thoughts. I don't know how long I have left, so whilst I can lift my fingers to the keypad, I will continue to communicate. The battery in my hand-held fan is waning. As it loses power, so do I.

Cafe Coho Brighton

Although simplicity in its form is far from what Café Coho are presenting with their visitors, the way in which they present it is simple. For instance, their egglette - eggtravagent (wehay!) and highly complex, it is in fact served so daintily and casually that we do not give a second glance to the weird, and wonderful creation in the Coho coolness

On Not Being Racist

Racism is not something we get to fix, once and for all. Racism is not something we get to opt out of. To imagine it is is to vastly underestimate the way in which our culture is steeped in bigotry.

Weekends and short breaks away are always a treat, whether you're a university student visiting friends or an older couple looking for a romantic getaway. But jetting off to faraway destinations for just a couple of days can leave you feeling a little unfulfilled, and perhaps more tired than before you left.

Finally! A politician who speaks my language! Who understands my needs! Finally, if all goes to plan, next summer I can marry my mum! Thank you, Lord Tebbit. People said - 'you're gay? I presume you'll be wed to your mother then?' To which I replied, 'you betcha! After all, lesbianism is just another word for tax-avoiding incest, isn't it?!'
