I've just been knocked out by The Incredible Hulk. In more ways than one. Both literally - and that's something for my acting résumé, surely - and metaphorically, by meeting the phenomenon in person and seeing what a nice guy he is.

Washing Machines, Lawn Mowers and the such like are all early forms of robots if you consider the word to mean a machine doing a task which was formally done by human beings or animals. Machines do not require holidays, lunch breaks or time off. Increasingly these machines are more reliable and suffer less 'time off work'.

Irrespective of whether there is a direct causal link to policy changes in the UK, evidence of homelessness would seem to indicate there is a growing problem. By evidence I mean I can see it with my own eyes. There are many more sleeping rough in Bristol this year than last.

Less Expletives and More Ideas: How Protests Could Be a Little More Democratic

Charley Bendall | Posted 26.05.2015 | UK Universities & Education

It only takes one riled individual setting fire to something they shouldn't to tarnish the entire group. Appearing on the news that night, their cause is lost in a story about out-of-control rebels in violent disarray. If you are that individual, it's simple: leave the spray paint, the petrol and the expletive laden placards at home, and come up with something more purposeful to chant.

Whether Langley's campaign will be helped or hindered by the revelations that he is also known as Johnny Rockard in the porn industry, is yet to be seen.

Winter is for the dreaming, as far as I am concerned. As the darkness sets in I begin to long for storytelling, for deep talk by candlelight, for open fire to stoke my spirit, for dreaming deeply.
