Changing the world is possible if we think on the long run. Are we seeing further than our own generation? How will the children of the elites - those we like to blame - act towards the people who spent their lives blaming their parents?

I don't remember whether this tattoo was Hebrew or Chinese. And I wouldn't be able to recall it again if l saw it now. I asked him what I meant. He replied. "Change or die". To this day it's the single most accurate sentence I've ever heard regarding recovery. Any type of recovery.

As humans we have evolved as social animals. It once made sense for us to stick to our own tribe because outsiders represented danger. They don't any more. Invite more outsiders into your tribe and freshen up your friendships and your life.

Michael Dugher

At a time when trust in politicians and politics remains perhaps at an all-time low, this week has been another bad week for Westminster... The truth is outside interests contribute not to the richness of debate in the House of Commons, but simply to the richness of individual MPs. It's time we did something about it. Every time the Tories and Lib Dems defend the status quo, their MPs may be richer, but our politics is all the poorer.
