That First School Trip Abroad

Kathryn Berens

In approximately 1 hour and 27 minutes my son will land back at Gatwick after his first trip abroad with the school. Approximately is not accurate, in exactly 1 hour and 27 minutes my son will land - how do I know this? Because I am his mother and I have been counting down the minutes until his return. I am under no illusions that he has been doing the same.

I was standing on the Promenade des Planches at Deauville, pristine sands stretched to the horizon. Behind me was a row of bathing huts each dedicated to a Hollywood great, from Shelley Winters to Lee Marvin. The stars were drawn here by the annual American Film Festival held every September in the International Convention Centre.

Why Wage Growth Will Likely Be Lower for Longer

Michael Martins | Posted 19.02.2016 | UK Politics
Michael Martins

It is likely that wage growth will continue to be low while productivity will continue to disappoint when compared to neighbours near and afar. At the same time, the very things that underpin those less than rosy figures are the factors driving the UK's strong economic performance in a rather lacklustre global economy.

Amélie Clermont

I am not insinuating that it is necessary to diagnose every temperamental child as bipolar -- the disorder requires the presence of precise symptoms. When the diagnosis comes, it is a difficult moment. But it is the solid basis on which to act; we know what we're fighting against.

I'll Always Go Back To Paris, Regardless Of The State Of Emergency

Alex Jackson | Posted 11.02.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Alex Jackson

The real attack on French culture here is the parliament's decision to reinforce the state of emergency, by no way a banner for tourists or French citizens alike. We look at France as the birthplace of modern democracy, and the country's founding call for liberté is something we should not take for granted the world over.

No-one knows who's here and anyone can simply walk in. In the chaos, many - including children, whether they are with their parents or not - are at huge risk of abuse and exploitation. Even when people have lodged asylum claims in France, the system is so slow that some give up waiting and try their luck jumping into the back of a lorry to cross the Channel. People smugglers live here, we were told, and gang rivalries sometimes erupt into violence, making already vulnerable people even more so.
