The Rise Of The No-Frills Hacker

It looks innocent enough - a receipt from your favourite high street shop, a file to review from a colleague or an alert from your bank or gas company that you have a statement to review or bill to pay. But something rather more sinister could be sitting in your inbox, waiting to be clicked.

Now is not the time to hide in a bunker. If something's worth fighting for, be it the NHS, libraries, equality, or multi-culturalism, get out and fight for it. It'll take more than armchair activism to salvage any hope from this wreckage.

Trump's Twitter Triumph: How Social Media Changed The Game At The US Election

Mark Hawtin | Posted 14.11.2016 | UK Tech

Obama was the first President to embrace digital media in his 2008 election campaign. He understood the power of the internet to get people engaged on a scale like never before . Lessons were learnt and future candidates begun to understand the importance of this new medium, although Trump and Clinton ultimately took very different approaches.

US Election - We All Need A Plan B

I just hope that is not what Hilary Clinton is doing today. Someone who has got that close to being the first female president of the USA clearly isn't stupid. But in my experience, anyone who has a positive Plan B in their sights, one that's both positive and achievable, will be OK.

Would you do something for me? It will only take a moment of your time if you have a second to spare. Please. Turn to the person next to you and ask them if they're okay. Ask them if they need advice or a friend. Ask them if they need a shoulder to cry on.

A Letter To America - Please Don't Make The Same Mistake As Us

Ian Middleton | Posted 07.11.2016 | UK Politics

Be better than us. See Trump for what he is - a one dimensional, delusional opportunist with an axe to grind who thinks being an overpaid, over-privileged reality TV host qualifies him for one of the most responsible positions on the planet.

Why Shouldn't Celebrities Get Political? At Least Their Voices Will Be Heard

I'm applauding Gary and Lily for their words and actions. I wish more people with a public profile would challenge prejudice and stand up for the most vulnerable members of our society. At this particular, political moment, campaigners need all the help they can get.

Here we are less than a month until voters in the USA take a decision in one of the most unprecedented elections ever to take place in the 'Land of the Free', a decision on the most powerful leader on the planet, a decision that will have global ramifications.

The Squib That Fizzled

If ever a fight did not live up to it's hype, it was this one. The build-up was extraordinary. The Donald sought to take charge of the accusations of misogyny that had been levelled at him all week by holding an extraordinary and unexpected press conference with four women who presumably had a tale to tell of their treatment at the hands of Bill Clinton.

Hillary Clinton's Team Needs To Act - Fast

Paul Blanchard | Posted 13.09.2017 | UK Politics
Paul Blanchard

Herein lies the problem in this case. Hillary's PR team have all the facts. They know her medical history and they know that this kind of collapse may well be a possibility at any time. So why didn't they have a proper statement ready? But more than this, why have they left it so long, many months, to really tackle the growing questions about Mrs Clinton's health?

Hillary Clinton's Been Talking About The USA's Mental Health Parity Law. What Would An English One Look Like?

Gregory Smith | Posted 06.09.2017 | UK Politics
Gregory Smith

The current political prominence that mental health is enjoying is both welcome and meaningful. But promises of improvement have a habit of slipping, and the NHS' current parlous financial situation could plausibly lead to mental health tottering backwards instead of taking the leaps forward it needs.

I believe that as women we should give Theresa May an opportunity to prove she is what this country needs. Still, a second female Prime Minister should excite us. We may not be exactly where we want to be but we're on our way there. Surely each small step we take towards progress is a step worth celebrating.

Donald Trump and the Far Right Legacy - Let's Catch Ourselves Before It's Too Late

You could argue that is already happening but it's as important as ever that we use the Brexit fallout as medium to have a long hard look in the mirror and constructively address the issues that divide us. Let's catch ourselves before it gets beyond hope and use Donald Trump as an example of what is not wanted here.

Boys Will Be Boys? (Or, Why Women Are Not Responsible for the Misbehaviour of Men)

We must teach both our girls and our boys that each of us is responsible for our own actions. No matter our gender. And whether it is at school, or work, or in taxis, we must therefore seek to tackle behaviour that is unacceptable, not marginalize those who suffer it.

No one ever thought Sanders would get this far, and there are 49 more chances for Bernie to eek out a victory in what should be an extremely close Primary. How the Establishment would sweat at the thought of a Bernie-Jeremy partnership.
