The job the PM has is to convince the Muslim community, especially parents, that integration into UK society is the best way to protect their children. Does the UK now need a US style pledge? It couldn't hurt.
The government last week set out its proposals to further reduce the rights of our trade unions, already labouring under the most restrictive laws in Europe, to cut away at rights that the Tolpuddle martyrs, who were being commemorated over the weekend, fought so hard for in the 19th Century. These plans are dreadful, and must be fought tooth and nail, which the Green Party will be doing.
In setting out to confront those who are born and raised in the UK but "who don't really identify with Britain", as he now puts it, the Prime Minister and others, like many before, implicitly reveal the real chink in their counter-narrative armour - which is that they do not offer any narrative of their own. They are clear about what they are against, but not about what they are for.
Since receiving the mandate to turn the UK blue, the Conservatives have wasted little time in outlining some major potential policy overhauls, the germs of which one must imagine have sat since 2010 in a pipeline clogged by coalition government.
It is reported that David Cameron is planning to enforce the publication of average male and female pay for firms with over 250 employees. To increase accountability and to enable government to monitor the effect of their policy, this pay gap should be published as open data.
So I am to spend the final throes of being 23 trundling slowly through revolving doors like some illiterate, gaping bovine waiting for a lobotomy that...
Instead of taking pity on workers who have been forced to take strike action as a final resort in a last ditch attempt to get the conditions at work that they deserve, the Tories have chosen to demonise them. Make no mistake about it, this proves more than ever that the Tories have their sights set firmly on Britain's six million trade unionists.
They even plan to make it a criminal offense for more than six people to stand peacefully in a picket line. This is ridiculous. The police should be out there catching the real criminals, not wasting their time arresting people on peaceful union pickets. If they get away with it, democracy and liberty in the UK will be seriously damaged. We will have the most draconian strike laws of any democracy in Western Europe.
I've always found blood sports despicable and never understood why any civilised human being would wish to take part in such hideous pastimes. In my e...
Over the past couple of decades, international students have been increasingly seen as cash cows by universities, colleges and the government; especially as cuts to education have increased.
In reality, the aim of the SI - which many its supporters candidly concede - is to return to hunting foxes with packs of dogs as sport, rather than for pest control purposes. And I can't vote for that.
What has happened to the Labour party? Once the proud defender of the working classes, it has been steadily showing its true blue colours since it assumed the mantle of the now defunct and destructive 'New Labour' project.
The Government's proposal to weaken the Hunting Act by allowing an unlimited number of dogs to pursue foxes, deer and hares for 'pest control', or simply for observation, is nothing more than a devious attempt to repeal the Act by the back door.
The cuts have already come. That "slow pace of welfare cuts" announced in the budget? Not true. Especially for child tax credits. Child tax credi...
The Budget was an act of oratorical brilliance. Osborne diluted the negatives - particularly cuts to tax credits - with a surfeit of confusing, rambling figures, yet accentuated the positives with clarity and clearness. Osborne delivered his finisher, the so-called living wage, with the sort of lucidity one could expect from Churchill on a good day. The Chancellor offered a brutal Budget and, somehow, due to his delivery, it seemed relatively moderate.
When did those people who have more than enough for their needs decide that they are no longer under any obligation to share their good fortune? Germany sees no need to help Greece; George Osborne sees no reason why the government - acting on behalf of those of us who are doing all right - should help provide a decent chance to those who are not...
