So what can we do about Katie? Katie the failed "Apprentice", Katie the Met Office drop-out, Katie the shameless 'media-tart' - loathe her or hate her, you cannot deny that she is an assiduous placer of irons in her own particular fire.

Hate Crime: Why Censors Are Right to Ban the Anti-Semitic Horror

I'm a fan of horror, I consider myself to be pretty liberal and I would consider myself a supporter of free speech and free expression but I also think there comes a time when a line has to be drawn and we have say that something is not okay.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if there was such a day to commemorate the millions of black African victims of slavery? Unlike the "six million" figure that so often goes with statistic about the number of Jews killed during the Second World War, it's not so easy to quantify when it comes to black slaves.

'Stay Human': The Forgotten Lesson of the Holocaust

The millions of Holocaust victims will be remembered on Tuesday as part of Holocaust Remembrance Day. Rather than turning this occasion into yet another gory battlefield of ideologies, the historical anguish should prompt us to work against the systems of collective hatred - beyond religious, ethnic and racial boundaries.

Make no mistake, moderate British Muslims have been expressing their concerns as to the rise of Islamic extremism in the UK since the 1990's and could well argue that they have already made a significant contribution to curbing the excesses of fanatical, Islamist groups.

'Aggressive' and 'Stingy': Anti-Semitism in the UK

Theresa May said the UK has to "wipe out anti-Semitism". The BBC has now featured an article about Jews in the UK fearing for their safety, but unfortunately this doesn't surprise me at all. This new interest in British anti-Semitism stems largely from the attacks in France, and it's a shame that it took such a tragic event for Brits to begin to consider the problems here at home.

Better a Christmas Tree Than a St George's Cross

Politicians do a disservice to the public to pretend otherwise. It is possible to celebrate difference while encouraging cohesion, but that is not by - out of fear or misplaced respect - ignoring the symbols that divide. It is possible to laud tolerance while criticizing those (flag-wavers?) who undermine it.

The Joy of a Jewish Row

We met my parents in a swish restaurant. I thought the evening went well until, in a taxi later, Sian asked with a worrying frown: "Do you actually like your parents?" "What do you mean?" "All you did was argue, pick faults and were all so rude!" "Really? I thought we were just talking."

It is time to wake up. In different ways many of us have done it, uttered sweeping, dangerous slurs - the "don't be gay" type comment is one I have heard unchallenged far too often. But it is the urgent responsibility of each of us, right now, to be precise about what speech we employ...

The Importance of Being Labelled

The only label that should matter for the future of Scotland is 'Scottish' (or resident of Scotland if we want to be accurate about these sorts of things). Let's hope people remember that when they hit the ballot box.

For centuries dating as far back as 3000 BC, India would've been regarded as not so much a country, but more a collection of evolving kingdoms and sprawling empires. Each with their own ruling dynasties, customs, culture, cuisine and fashion. The nation may be unified as one nowadays, but the remnants of this land's rich and diverse heritage still lives on.
