There are so many people, like Naoki and myself, who are struggling to find a way to live with enormous challenges. Together, I hoped we might be able to help and guide people in today's world, because disability, disease, accident and bereavement are life-changing events that we all have to face.

Needless to say some of those people I started following on Twitter made an appearance. In my dream I didn't seem the slightest bit surprised to find them all at an orgy, I must say here that NO FLESH was bared.

Sexism and the Ryanair Cabin Crew Calendar 2014

Tish Weinstock | Posted 18.03.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Tish Weinstock

Ryanair, that of the cheap flights, zero legroom and zero tolerance of fat people, is the world's most hated airline. Popularly seen as the villain of the skies, Ryanair has been pissing people off for the last twenty plus years: with all its hidden levies, taxes and charges, Europe's ''only ultra-low cost carrier'' isn't actually selling low cost flights.

Gayathri Kanagasundaram

It may be a biased opinion, but David Mitchell makes a fantastic host, as heard on Radio 4's 'Unbelievable Truth' which he hosts. His relentless logic and sarcastic outlook on the world still remains with this show, especially when he has witty response to the last quote of the day.

Comedians in Politics: An Open Letter

Bobby Friedman

Dear Rupert I've been a big fan over the years. I've enjoyed your witty asides, acerbic observations, and the time you got us all thrown out of a club for 'inappropriate dancing'. In fact, despite your ubiquity, you are consistently more funny than average (if your sample includes Sarah Teather, as she brings down the mean).

Being a little bit of a feminist is okay. You won't compromise your femininity, men will find you attractive and women will like you. But cross the line in becoming a full blown feminist and all of a sudden a metamorphosis occurs.

Hilary Wardle | Posted 13.02.2013 | UK Comedy
Hilary Wardle

Any comedy lumbering into its eighth series usually faces accusations of becoming stale and tired, but Peep Show doesn't have to worry about that: it's barely managed to rustle up a single negative review since it initially aired way back in 2003.

How Peep Show Saved the Sitcom

Mark enters a relationship with Sophie (Olivia Colman) and finds, quite rapidly, that... he doesn't really like her. This isn't anyone's fault, neither are presented as terrible human beings. They're just fundamentally incompatible and only end up steamrolling into marriage due to crippling mutual loneliness.

Prejudice Towards the 'Posh' Isn't Unfair - It's an Attitude More People Need to Take

Alex MacDonald | Posted 13.08.2012 | UK Politics

Watching Sunday Morning Live with Francis Boulle from Made in Chelsea this week kind of pushed me over the edge - the suggestion that classism or prejudice of people based on their upper-class backgrounds is akin to racism was just too much to take.
