The Freedom of Speech

Dr Ion Jinga

I am a great supporter of this fundamental principle of democracy and I expect it is exercised in good faith and without deliberately distorting the obvious truth. An article published on 8 March by the Daily Mail, with the title "Romanian fury over Channel 4 documentary as their MPs ask: What if we made a programme saying all Brits were alcoholics and paedophiles?" doesn't make me question the principle, but the author's good faith and respect for the truth.

All Muslims must stand together and not only condemn them but work together to defeat extremists like ISIS.

The Scottish independence debate prompted numerous claims from the left of the Scots actually having a chance to decide their own future. This isn't a new complaint - many groups, Occupy and the People's Assembly among others, have been posing it, especially since the economic collapse.

What Does 'The End of Hipster' Mean for 'Mipsterz'?

Furquan Akhtar | Posted 05.09.2014 | UK Lifestyle

Personal experiences of hipsters are a far cry from Williamsburg, New York but instead it was like watching pockets of East London being swallowed up by a swarm of skinny jean wearing, flat white drinking locusts. As preened men were dubbed "Metrosexuals" and "scallies" evolved into "Chavs"; in my circle "Indie" became "Hipster".

Toxic Fame Living on Benefits Street

Mark Borkowski | Posted 16.03.2014 | UK
Mark Borkowski

I'm no opponent of fantasy, or of shock value. I also don't believe McKerrow or his company set out to deceive or mislead anyone. I do, however, know first-hand the disconnect between us media folk, who are comfortable living our lives as a dance of smoke and mirrors, and ordinary people, who assume that when they say things they will usually be taken as meant. The problem here isn't any kind of sinister right-wing agenda (as critics of Benefits Street allege). Rather, the media's fluid reality has clashed against the more unyielding reality known to most people, with uncomfortable results.
