Make Britain Tolerant: Leicester Is British

'British' means anything you want it to. I had hoped that too would be the message of Channel 4's Make Leicester British documentary which aired on Monday night - yet it wasn't to be. From the introductory seconds, the programme started on with the anti-immigration attitude I quietly dreaded.

As a viewer, I didn't get the feeling that Krishnan was feeling either flustered, tongue-tied or even embarrassed, but just that I think he didn't know how to get it all off the ground. At one point, he even asks Richard to "help" him.

Does Anybody Really 'Lose Their Battle With Cancer?'

Paul M. Davies | Posted 27.10.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Paul M. Davies

The expression is often used to express regret or in a context of celebration of the deceased, however, it carries ulterior implications, even if they are unintended by the user. Describing people to have 'lost' to cancer suggests that they could have done something differently and the outcome could be changed.

Channel 4 have a new romantic comedy on at 10pm tonight called Scrotal Recall, charting the mission of a young man tracking down his past sexual contacts when he discovers he has chlamydia. Though it's clearly a rom-com at heart, the show also doubles as a pretty good way to remove the stigma often felt around STIs (sexually transmitted infections).

Our Obligation to the Memory of the Victims of 9/11

Jon Snow

Thirteen years after 9/11, an English speaking voice articulates the beheading of an American hostage. There are hundreds of western Muslims in the ranks of Islamic State (IS). In waging unwise and horrific war themselves in Iraq, western powers have forfeited their capacity overtly to bolster moderate regional forces in Syria and Iraq.

If you have some collateral, that doesn't mean you shouldn't invest. And I may have a solution for you - dealing in modern art and vintage late twentieth-century furniture. You may think this is the reserve of the posh and rich. But, as a one-time working-class lad from East London, I can tell you it absolutely is not.

Worst Place to Be a Pilot

After 50 minutes or so flying, Hitadipa is in sight. It's located at the bottom of a narrow valley and due to its location, makes for a dramatic approach. It requires pilots to descend deep into the narrow valley in order to ensure they can land at the very beginning of what is a short and usually slippery grass airstrip.

Gaza: Should TV Media Coverage Always Be 'Impartial'?

Paul Blanchard | Posted 07.10.2014 | UK

What Israel is doing to Gaza is sickening. This civilised, westernised, democratic state is lobbing bombs into a city centre packed with people, with seemingly little regard for who dies: little children, disabled people, old ladies, pregnant women - anyone is fair game.

Supermarket chicken is making us sick, as the recent scandal over the spread of the potentially-deadly campylobacter bug revealed. But cheap poultry is also linked to poor conditions for some (mainly migrant) workers toiling in Britain's vast slaughterhouses and processing factories.

FactCheck: What About the Britons Who Fight for Israel?

Channel 4 News | Posted 29.09.2014 | UK
Channel 4 News

There are around 100 British nationals serving with the IDF as we speak, apparently with no legal difficulties. But a Brit who trains or fights with any anti-Assad rebel group runs the risk of being jailed as a terrorist. If we are worried about young British Muslims heading off to the Middle East to receive military training, should we be equally worried about Jews?
