Growing hostility towards Muslims from the general public is frankly worrying for British society-this must be changed. To create the unity we all so desperately need for Britain's future, teamwork is crucial: both Muslims and the rest of society must rally to resolve issues in the 21st Century.
Today, we are neither left nor right, we are French. Leaving aside partisan divisions and more than ever we advocate for national unity.
Zoos are based on the menageries of old and harken back to a time when Europeans used to pillage other continents and steal their treasures. Zookeepers today must recognise that their business model is dying and stop pretending that zoos make meaningful contributions to conservation.
The EU needs to prioritize the human rights and wellbeing of asylum seekers, but the participation of all 28 members is necessary. Operation Triton and the Dublin Regulation must be adjusted in order to accommodate the current volume of asylum seekers.
With a renewed international focus on human rights in North Korea, female refugees are increasingly sharing their stories, giving us a greater understanding of sexual violence and in subsequent countries of asylum.
It would appear that social care remains a poor relation of the NHS, lacking both political clout and financial resources. It doesn't need to be that way. Let's reframe social care as a universal public service: social care services available for all people who will inevitably need them at some point in their lives
Disability will be talked about through the bitter election ahead, but when the term is banded about as a synonym for poverty, it is important to question if this is merely political hot air, or really what a range of disabled people believe and think? I doubt in most cases it will be the latter and I fear the general public will sadly remain fooled into seeing disability as just a welfare issue without ever hearing from all disabled people.
What's clear though is that something has to give. I'm not sure if it's just a New Year thing but strangely I think we may have reached a tipping point. Wildlife, this could be your year.
Around 3.2million people have Type 2 diabetes and there are 11.5million at high risk of it. Over seven million people across the UK are living with the burden of cardiovascular disease - and every day more than 100 people will have their lives cut short by heart disease and stroke.
It began with a BBC Panorama programme in early 2014. It has ended with an All Party Parliamentary report just before Christmas. From start to finish, 2014 became the year in which it has become clear that food banks are far more than a response to a crisis occasioned by the recent recession. Even as the economy grows and employment with it, the number of those presenting with genuine food poverty in Britain continues itself to grow, and rapidly. What's going on?
New research from the relationships charity that I work for OnePlusOne has found that a quarter of all parents who live with their partner and children have secretly considered separating or divorcing their partner.
In 2015 could the emerging FGM Unit please find some serious longer term money, tighten up the loose ends and tell us who is ultimately in charge? Then there'll be a decent chance FGM will end in Britain.
Religions throughout the world use the New Year as a time to repent for their sins and seek a more enlightened path, perhaps the world can take a step back from vanity and seek a more charitable and selfless path, maybe if we each focused on the importance of others then perhaps 2015 could be a year of positive social change.
What's needed is appropriate crisis intervention on two levels. Firstly, we need clinically led, safe services with clear protocols so that people get the support they need as quickly as possible- and helped to recover as soon as they can. What are also needed are crisis houses, places of respite.
The Al Jazeera case is of course just the most visible part of the iceberg. Since the 2013 coup and the merciless crushing of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Egypt government's suppression of all opposition - and indeed suppression also of "outsider" lifestyles like people perceived to be gay - appears to be boundless.
MGEDT continues to receive emails from male sufferers from across the UK and around the world several times a week. In many of these emails we hear from sufferers who are isolated and feeling 'like the only one'.
