Polyamory is on the rise! According to OK Cupid 50% of users in 2015 were happy to consider dating someone who was already involved in an open or p...
Only a week has gone by since the UK officially notified the EU that we wanted to leave. It is hard to believe how things have deteriorated so badly in that short time.
Which brings me to Gibraltar. British-owned since 1713, many Brits would rather the days of rationing were brought back than see Spain get their hands on the territory. Does Theresa agree with them? I'm not so sure, especially if it gets in the way of her proposals for a hard Brexit.
Last week I had a surprise when I picked up my four-year-old twins from pre-school. Their teacher said one of them (Leo) had been telling the class about Theresa May taking us out of the European Union!
29th March 2017 is a dark day and I believe those that brought it about will not be remembered kindly by history, regardless what happens next. For as long as we are still in the EU, millions of us will continue to voice our opinion and to fight for the UK to remain in the EU. And if we do leave, we will campaign to re-join.
Like more than 80% of academics and a substantial majority of young people who will be most affected by Brexit, I voted to remain in the European Union.
What would be the result of zero tariffs for our British lamp manufacturer? They would be able to import their components with ease, but their exports would hit the same costs as one faces now when trading overseas.
On 13th October 2015, I crossed the border from Croatia to Hungary, along with hundreds of refugees travelling northwards through Europe towards Germa...
The European Court of Justice has just ruled that religious symbols, such as hijabs, turbans and kippahs may be banned in the workplace. This is no less than an attack on people that practice a religion and are required to wear visible religious symbols; most of whom are ethnic minorities. It essentially legalises discrimination. And the right wing are celebrating.
It is a political, social, economic and cultural construct that should be the model for the European Union to emulate. It would be a real waste, and an exercise in pure political vanity, to want to exercise that political freedom in such a self-destructive manner.
The freedom of expression, whether that manifests in the form of a controversial speaker, a satirical magazine such as Charlie Hebdo, or donning a headscarf as a symbol of your religious conviction, is a cornerstone of Western society. To restrict this freedom in the name of a more 'Western' or 'liberal' society is a dismaying oxymoron and an ominous sign if it is any reflection of the nature of solutions in the future.
Politicians must ensure the media cover their news and views but it is a taxing task, as we saw last week with two flawed initiatives. Opposition Leader Jeremy Corbyn released his annual tax returns as part of a campaign to expose tax avoidance and evasion, which costs billions in lost revenues.
The Greece I grew up in was a very different place form the one you see today. I will not bore you with statistics that you can easily see elsewhere, but I can tell you this: It did not feel like Northern Europe. Things were basic, but progressing steadily during the 1980s, and despite the occasional hiccup, people got progressively richer and life was gradually becoming easier.
As MPs gave the Government the go-ahead by voting the Brexit bill and the Lords are debating it now, Gina Miller, the businesswoman and philanthropist who successfully challenged the Prime minister over Article 50 at the Supreme Court, kindly accepted to answer my questions in an exclusive interview.
We are all now Brexiteers since the referendum vote last year - but democracy didn't stop on the 23rd June 2016 just because those in favour of the ha...
I do not share the fury that my friend demonstrated as we were enjoying our ethnic falafel wraps! However, as the author John Steinbeck wrote in The Winter of Our Discontent, "It is much darker when a light goes out than it would have been if it had never shone." But I do not wish to go there - at least not for now!
