Besides Boris Johnson - an important and charismatic actor as a no-nonsense figurehead for Leave - their campaign has displayed limited star power. Especially, since they seem to be attracting some choice overseas supporters of Brexit including French National Front chairwoman Marine Le Pen and Donald Trump.
I'll never forget sitting with my friend in the hospital and being told that it was cancer. Being diagnosed was the scariest experience of my life. Still, to this day I really find it difficult to express how much of a shock it was, just because you hear stories all the time and the word 'cancer' fills you with fear. You think, 'it won't happen to me'.
For the record I'm not remotely interested in taking anyone's statue down. It's just high time we got some new ones. So that school kids in Hackney, Liverpool and Manchester can look up to people who look a bit more like them; people who achieved great things and are finally recognised as having done so.
Raising awareness of mental health causes is something that has always been really important to me. I strongly believe that improving people's understanding of mental health difficulties and normalising discussions about these issues can have a positive impact on reducing the associated stigma enabling people to be more open about their own struggles. I was really impressed by a recent awareness campaign held for SAMH in Scotland.
The struggle is finally over for LUU Exec candidate, Jack Palmer's campaign banner after it was returned by hostage takers demanding tickets to the Leeds University Union club night, Fruity. The demands were set out a week ago from the anonymous students, with a ransom demand of several Fruity tickets after stealing the banner for warmth from the freezing Leeds early morning conditions.
This year is the year of the diversity for Fashion and for Women in general. We have seen tremendous efforts from all parts in promoting diversity in the perception of beauty. From Lane Bryant to VOGUE to TARGET and Sports Illustrated, everyone is finally realizing that diversity and self love are absolutely vital and beneficial for all of us.
I started the #itaffectsme campaign to encourage people who have suffered or who know someone who has suffered to post selfies on social media to prove that the one in four people who suffer from mental health issues really are everywhere. That mental illnesses are universal and have no prejudices about who they affect.
Domestic violence is often more than physical violence alone. A physical assault can be easy to identify but other ways of controlling a person are more insidious and can be harder for victims to recognise. This is often because these controlling behaviours are so embedded within normative beliefs about the roles of men and women. Financial abuse falls into the latter category.
