I see a generation weary of business of usual. I see a generation that knows what it wants and is beginning to get mobilised and fight for it. I see a generation set to topple the old order, banish the archaic and the corrupt and the broken, and usher in a progressive future. I see a generation set to pull us back from the brink and change the world. Westminster sees it too, and nothing could terrify it more.
It is clear that the Conservative Party's longer-term economic plan is working. They are cutting income tax for over 25 million people, saving the typical tax payer £705 a year. They are cutting the jobs tax saving businesses up to £2,000 enabling businesses to hire more people...
Value-for-money has been the deafening cry of free market ideologues and politicians on the right. Keep governments out, privatize, and let the market work its magic to produce the most efficient solution, they say...
Rather than ill-conceived, reactionary measures, Mr Cameron should realise it's not a lack of access to data that's preventing better detection of terrorists: Instead, put more resources into analysing the data and what to do with the access they currently have:..
The failure to stand up to political pressure from the US has been catastrophic. But my fear is that unless the Chilcot report is published, quickly, we will not alter our foreign policy accordingly. Old habits die hard: David Cameron still attaches enormous importance to the style of his reception in the White House, while Ed Miliband worked extremely hard to gain the approval of the US President last summer... We owe our armed forces more than this. We owe their families an explanation. And we owe our country the right to hold their leaders to account: we must sort the delays and publish Chilcot before the election.
Gone are the aggressive spin doctors, replaced by Gok Wan and his team of make over stylists, convincing Ed Miliband that a Hoxton fin, skinny jeans and Superdry T shirt is the ideal look to convince the electorate of Beaconsfield to vote Labour.
Campaigning on the streets or displaying advertisements that highlight a party's qualities as opposed to the opposition's flaws are a far healthier way to engage with the population. We should be voting for the party that best represents our needs, not voting against the person who looks more foolish on a billboard above a random street corner.
With the General Election appearing on the horizon, the choice of which party to vote for has created the same dilemma as deciding upon how best you would like to be killed. The only difference being that if you are dead, you would not have to contemplate the outcomes of the choice of political party you have had to make.
"A day like today is not a day for soundbites", so said Prime Minister Tony Blair before deploying one to herald the Good Friday Agreement. The reality is that soundbites and politics go hand in hand, and to win in May parties will have to master this linguist art in order to succeed.
The thing is, politicians are getting their priorities all wrong. They're running around photoshopping campaign posters and trying 'out-norm' each other on Question Time - while what they should be doing is sitting down with a pie, some gin and and the Game of Thrones box set.
In the same way it is necessary to have limits on freedom of speech, we must too have limits on tolerance of intolerance. Too many independent faith schools break this threshold, perpetuate division and prevent meaningful cross-faith contact. In the interests of better long-term integration, we should gradually ban them.
It seems then, that much like the high-pressure fluid injected to fracture our rock, mounting pressure from politicians and campaigners is creating cracks throughout Britain. Indeed, it is no longer just the 'Green Blob' that opposes fracking.
I understand the need for diplomatic niceties to be observed. That's why when a royal head of state dies, I'm perfectly happy for one of our royals to attend the funeral. But why on earth do we have to send the prime minister as well? ... Wouldn't it be nice if, like Germany, we could halt our arms sales to what is undoubtedly one of the nastiest regimes on the planet. And when the new king dies - he's already 79 - perhaps we could send Prince Charles on his own. I'm sure he'd manage just fine.
I don't smoke marijuana, however I completely support the case for legalisation. An increasing amount of people are turning to the drug to help with ongoing medical issues such as cancer and arthritis. Marijuana has been proven to help relieve pain and improve quality of life over more conventional legal drugs such as Morphine.
Face it: over the last five years, Britain's social safety net has been reduced to tatters. We're letting more and more of the country's most at-risk individuals slip into deprivation. Yet even as food bank parcels continue to fly off the shelves at breakneck speed, we're still being asked to forgo basic empathy in the name of economic growth.
Before we as a country tear ourselves to pieces, I thought it would be worth briefly reflecting on the NHS and what we, as taxpayers, want from our political leaders. This is a very personal reflection on the health service, and so should be taken as such...
