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

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.

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.

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 30.07.2014 | 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?

'Meet the Commissioner' Was Both Farce and Tragedy

Nicholas Rogers | Posted 29.07.2014 | UK Politics
Nicholas Rogers

The introduction of Police & Crime Commissioners was a genuinely radical move. Unaccountable bureaucracies were replaced with a single, elected, accountable person. PCCs should make policing more democratic and transparent. They should be driving a revolution in the relationship between the police and the people. They should be doing great things.

'Married At First Sight' - Channel 4's Latest Social Experiment

Penny Fordham | Posted 09.07.2014 | UK Entertainment
Penny Fordham

But I can't help but feel that the format of 'Married At First Sight' tarnishes that. Just as you may buy an item of clothing to try on at home, decide you don't like it and return it to the shop with your receipt, Channel 4's new show seems to imply marriage is something that can be taken lightly as you can get out of it at the first sign of stormy waters.
