After all, the more pertinent issue to consider when deciding who to vote for should be the government's record, and not - as the media sees fit to imply - the aesthetics of the opposition leader's consumption of bacon f***ing sandwiches.
There was a moment in The Apprentice a few years ago when one of the contestants was trying to defend her business plan in a tough investor-style inte...
It's arguable how much difference there is between the two/three main parties, the Conservatives, Labour and, to a lesser extent, the Lib Dems (I think there are fairly significant differences).
In a world where the Mail points out the failures in a flagship Tory policy and the Guardian falsely eulogises it, it is hard to get a handle on the world around us.
Politicians and opinion-formers, please stop listening to the "moneymen". Go back to first principles and start using some common sense.
Low pay and wage stagnation have left a gaping hole in the UK's public finances. New research published by the TUC for Fair Pay Fortnight shows that the government is collecting £33.4billion less in income tax and national insurance than had been forecast by the Office of Budget Responsbility, following the longest squeeze on wages since Victorian times.
Children are simple souls really. They are quite easy to please. If you can make them laugh then they will be your friend. So at nursery or school there are always a few kids who try to take on the class clown role.
The leaders of the three largest parties have now jointly stated that climate change is one of the most serious threats facing the world. They agree that it threatens not just the environment but also security, prosperity and poverty eradication.
I really don't get Labour's campaign at the moment. It's like they're heading into a football match with a 10-0 advantage, up against nine men who are all in blindfolds, and they still end up getting trounced.
This week could be seen as the defining moment of the 2015 election. The week that the true nature of the election made itself clear. Whether it is going to be an election based on policy or frippery - a tax avoidance or a pink bus election.
This austerity movement has been unfolding across Europe for some time now, and on the surface it makes perfect sense. After all, cuts lead to savings, which in turn lead to investment and growth - right? Not entirely.
If you are an avid reader of the Daily Telegraph or Times you will be aware that there is a new round of speculation that some of our politicians are interested in extending the Right to Buy to housing associations... If there is a serious proposal to legislate again, it will fail again. And here's why.
It's clear, the current system is failing to provide the variety and type of housing that Londoners want. It's ridiculous that new housing is normally less popular and less valuable than homes built 200 years ago. As long as the problem of housing is left solely in the hands of planners and large developers, the housing crisis will not be solved.
I want the government to focus on all young people and nurture the talent we have in order to help our country keep up with global competitors. We are repeatedly told that we are the future of the nation. If indeed we are the future of Britain, why are our leaders not taking us seriously and investing in us?
On 18 September, the people of Scotland voted against independence. The Scottish National Party (SNP), created in 1934 with independence as its central goal, had lost. Yet just five months later, they are now positioned as one of the big potential winners in May's UK General Election.
Young voters are looking for something different, something promising: a Blair-esque figure for this generation. If the Conservatives and Labour believe that the young vote is so important, then it's time they start appealing to the young voter and show what they're offering, instead of turning the House of Commons into a playground.
