As both a patient and a medical student observing this junior doctor contract saga roll on, it looks like history is repeating itself. Hunt has repeatedly and unwaveringly misrepresented medical findings, and the results have been deeply concerning.
We're planning to stay here all day in protest at government plans to force fracking on communities across the country. Today we want to show David Cameron's government - this is what it feels like to have the shale gas industry pushed on you against your own will.
Osborne will also not gain a boost in popularity from amongst the Conservative Party membership by going down an anti EU line which Boris or Teresa might try to do. He has to stand on his record and achievements. He has misjudged the mood on the tax issue and it will haunt him.
The arguments for a political system that's genuinely democratic, that produces a government reflecting the will of the people that encourages a more constructive, effective politics are overwhelmingly strong. Britain needs to do this. It needs to do it soon. That requires parties, campaigners - the people - to get together and demand the change. Today's one step in that process.
That the speech took place at all was much more important than what was in it - the policies announced are all fairly small-scale and will have little to no impact if pushed through without comprehensive sentencing reform.
Beware of big numbers. Thursday's London donor conference on Syria made all the right noises - they always do - but if past experience is anything to go by, the right noises rarely translate into ready cash.
Two weeks ago I sent the Prime Minister an open letter about the disgraceful retrospective hike in student loans. Those who started university since 2012 currently repay 9% of everything earned above £21,000 - this threshold was supposed to rise annually from 2017, but the Government has now frozen it.
David Cameron's attempts to bus-in support for what most people seem to think is a lack-lustre deal on EU reform could back-fire spec...
As the Paymaster General concluded, "It's harder to climb the ladder of opportunity if the rungs are further apart. We've got to put more rungs in that ladder." This Government is already putting rungs on the ladder and will continue to, so that more people can start to climb. The Conservative Party truly is the party of opportunity.
This week saw some welcome news for democratic reformers - national parliaments will be able to veto unwanted EU laws if they don't have the backing o...
Britain has its own proud tradition of fighting tyranny, of protecting liberty and democracy both at home and abroad. For us, Europe has always been about trade. For the continent, it is about so much more. This does not mean either side is wrong. But the European Project is not right for us.
The papers this week are vicious in their damnation of the so-called 'Deal' from the EU. This supposed triumph of reform has been derided in colourful terms from a 'joke' or 'illusion' to 'polishing poo'. Far from a triumph, the deal is a presentational disaster, far worse than Downing Street could ever have imagined.
That's why today is so important. It is time to change those attitudes to mental illness and it is time for us to talk to one another about how we are feeling. If we all take the time to talk to a friend or colleague about how we are feeling, or about our experiences of mental illness, we can help change the way two thirds of people are feeling.
The camp is a fragile and desperate place. There are thousands of people, including babies and very young children, living in freezing conditions with no education, limited food and healthcare. The efforts of the volunteers and agencies responding to the crisis are remarkable, but it is quite clear that much more needs to be done.
So that's it. Mr Cameron's renegotiation of our EU membership is all but complete. And one thing is clear. There will be no reform. Our PM has returned from Brussels with 75% of what he was asking for. A good effort - if not for the fact he was asking for almost nothing in the first place.
None of the promised changes put forward by the Prime Minister in either his much-vaunted Bloomberg speech, or in the 2015 and 2010 General Election manifestos, are going to be fulfilled. The letter confirms what we had all expected. The renegotiation reminds me of the closing scenes of Macbeth: "full of sound and fury signifying nothing."
