Feminism (and a concerted backlash against it) is all over the internet, all over the media and all over student campuses. Feminism is, like, "cool"...at last! Maybe it's not surprising then that in January Cameron said the UK should "lead the charge on women's equality worldwide". For a prime minister who isn't sure whether he's a feminist or not, that's quite a commitment.
One of the bugbears of being a politician is the risk that a controversy might erupt at any time about things that have little or no direct connection with their day-to-day work. Recently David Cameron has been criticised for surrounding himself with alumni of his own school, Eton, who (so the charge runs) cannot understand the day-to-day lives of normal people. Other stories down the years have concerned politicians' finances, sexual affairs, family connections and youthful indiscretions. What really irritates voters? YouGov set out to find out in a survey...
General revolt against Ofsted is growing, with schools around the country (and their communities) saying that its processes are not fair or reasonable, its criteria arbitrary, and its inspections incredibly stressful and destructive.
The most famous front door in the world has got to be the UK Prime Ministers abode. That huge black door, with the policeman standing guard sullenly outside, is recognised globally.
It is unfortunate for us all that William Hague is such a maladroit character, a modern day Lord Curzon. He shoots from the hip and never fails to turn a crisis into a drama.
Do you want my alternative take on the ongoing crisis in Ukraine; David Cameron on the phone; Nick Clegg vs Nigel Farage; and the selfie that broke Twitter? Would you like to see me attempt some Putin-esque chin-ups on camera, despite being totally unfit? Here's the political week in 60 seconds.
After centuries of conquest, Empire, a bloody parting with the Irish and the ultimately painful but redemptive processes of decolonisation and European integration, a civilised and affectionate break-up of the Union may be best for all of our nations. It would bring our island story full-circle.
The destruction of David Owen's career was a personal tragedy for him - jeered at, spat upon, abused and threatened, he settled for a quieter life. But his story is our tragedy, too. In our politics, the way we run it, the way we like it, the righteous are mashed up and spat out.
I sincerely hope that J.K. Rowling never stops writing and I am hugely excited about the publication of The Silkworm. Having immortalised her as the greatest writer to have ever lived, the press is unfortunately now looking for a wholly unfair excuse to tear her down. Without her books I know I would not be the person I am today.
The future for Bahrain is uncertain. However, one certainty amidst the chaos, is that change is Bahrain will remain a mirage so long as the king is bolstered by so much international support. Let's not beat about the bush, the British government is publicly supporting a oppressive and undemocratic government in Bahrain.
In the aftermath of Angela Merkel's visit, David Cameron's European strategy stands revealed as, at best, an ill thought out sham, at worst, a cynical confidence trick. Dave was all over Merkel like an Italian gigolo... She presented her cheek prettily enough. And, er, that's it.
Do you want my alternative take on the ongoing row between Harriet Harman and the Daily Mail over paedophilia, the future of coalition governments in the UK and Angela Merkel's visit to London to see her 'naughty nephew' David Cameron? Would you like to see me attempt to speak some German on camera, despite not knowing a word of it? Here's the political week in 60 seconds...
Dear Chancellor, It was really sweet of you to pop over to London yesterday afternoon, but frankly I'd much rather you'd cancelled the trip and flown to Moscow instead...
Ever since the coalition came to power in 2010, they've carried out reform after reform under the sanctimonious presumption that we've got to 'trim the fat' off of Britain's social safety net... Less than a year into the implementation of these callous reforms, that same, self-inflicted shot in the foot has landed us on the precipice of a humanitarian disaster.
he fact that Mrs Merkel is visiting Britain is of great importance given the political circumstance of Europe, however, before Mr Cameron gets ahead of himself, he should focus on bringing his party back into government in 2015, rather than dealing with EU matters which may not even materialise should he fail to win the next general election.
Scotland's First Minister, Alex Salmond, is basing the economics in these fossil fuels as the economic cornerstone of Scottish independence, while UK Prime Minister David Cameron is arguing that Scotland will need to stay in the UK for these resources best to be managed.
