I understand governments need to tackle radicalisation and extremism. I understand that they have a difficult task on their hands. But please try and find real reasons behind these acts instead of making a scapegoat out of an immigrant Muslim woman like me.
What sort of system have we created that relentlessly siphons wealth from the poor to the richest 1%, and in the process deprives humanity of the resources that could bring happiness, contentment and joy to billions of people? When, oh when, will world leaders take concrete steps to remedy this injustice and unfairness?
If the Tories think that a Labour ditching of Trident would make them unelectable, then they really are ignorant to the concerns and interests of ordinary British people.
Maintenance grants support some 500,000 of the poorest students. Converting these to loans will mean hundreds of thousands will graduate with debt of up to £53,000. These very facts was put directly to the Prime Minister at PMQs in the House of Commons and the complacency of his answer says it all.
In almost exactly a month's time David Cameron will meet the press in Brussels to announce the outcome of the European Council meeting. The media room...
A forceful and vengeful political vehicle that seeks to differentiate, demarcate and subsequently discriminate against Muslims and their communities this week's political approaches and their appropriation of British Muslim women are little different.
Social affairs journalist Dawn Foster's new book Lean Out is a mere 81 pages long, but it packs a powerful punch. Inspired by Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg's likeable bestseller Lean In, it's much more than just a riposte to the popular business manifesto for women....
The Prime Minister accepts that there is no clausal link to language and extremism but still resolved to make the link during his proposal. It might be an idea to look at credible strains of opinion around what leads to 'extremist' thought before he lays out his next proposal.
Am I the only one whose ears prick up when I hear phrases like 'One Nation' and 'Big Society'? Next to the stoic mantra of George Osborne's 'long-term economic plan', these phrases seem to hint at a sense of vision rather than a 'building society' advert.
As for reducing radicalisation.. I suggest you speak to the fluent English speaking mothers who took their children to Syria..... maybe even the 'fluent' English speaking mothers whose children join the EDL or Pediga and stop trying to socially engineer Mrs Khans family.
Firstly prepare your beverage of choice (I personally like an organic cider from a local producer) Then, on a second platter, prepare a roulette of shot's (I personally use a organic celeriac vodka).
It was former DCLG Minister Sir Eric Pickles who once said "Without English, you can't belong" and it was on that basis that programmes across the country began to build communities using English language teaching.
As you may be aware, I have engaged lawyers who are currently looking at whether this change can be challenged legally. Yet this is just as much a moral issue as a legal one. A retrospective change will destroy any trust current and future generations can have in the student finance system, and perhaps, even more widely, in the political system as a whole.
An article in the Guardian on bosses' pay by the director of the High Pay Centre, Deborah Hargreaves, presents the disparity between bosses' pay and t...
When reporters talk about national security on TV news, you won't see the tightrope they're treading behind the studio desk. An inch towards one side, and they risk scaremongering - sway the other way, and they're in danger of understating an important story.
What is disgusting is that my sister is 25-years-old and many days she runs a ward by herself with a registrar or consultant to contact if she needs help with particularly unwell people. That is an enormous amount of stress to put onto a young person and an enormous amount of responsibility...
