It's naive to think that much of what you read is particularly truthful, unbiased, based on legitimacy or even marginally informative but The Independent definitely used to be a place you could go to for actual news, well thought-out opinions and a sense of pride in reporting.

Remember flailing your arms around and howling is despair when that cold bastard Roose Bolton plunged his blade into poor old Robb Stark's chest? Remember your heart dropping when his wife and unborn child were slaughtered before his eyes? Season three of Game of Thrones was pretty gross, pretty traumatic and a lot devastating. It was also incredible television. And now the show's back for more.

Is News Ruining Our Lives?

We are amid the greatest revolution human life has ever known - the liberation of communication - in the hands of the many as well as that dangerous few. Yes of course the danger is there - the danger that what we call news maybe hijacked, distorted, lied about, propogandised. But today I argue that we stand at the dawn of the golden age of what we have come to describe as journalism. The mediation of information by individuals, collectives, groups, whom WE have the very individual powers to choose.

Russell Brand Didn't Cave to the System, He Hacked It

In Jon Snow's interview with Russell Brand last week the presenter accused the comedian of inconsistency for rallying against parliamentary democracy while asking people to sign a government e-petition. I think Jon missed the point. Russell Brand didn't play by the rules of our parliamentary system, he hacked it.

It's easy to mock the Southbank Centre's Being A Man Festival that explores what it means to be a man in the twenty first century. Why mark out these three days, when they seem to be doing a pretty good job at dominating the other 362 of the year?

Nelson Mandela: The Man Who Inspired My Generation

Jon Snow

Over two decades after his "walk to freedom", Nelson Mandela has walked his final mile. The impact of his death will reach far beyond the frontiers of South Africa. There will be tears, but celebration for one of the most remarkable lives of our time. Madiba, as he was fondly known, leaves us with a memory of the best in public life to which any human can aspire. His signal contribution to humankind, the embrace and sustaining of forgiveness for his own, and for his people's oppression.

Selfie Awareness

Selfies are a pre-twerk-meme developed last year, it is a voyeuristic way of exposing one's self in different twists and crotches. It isn't a game as there are austere rules and regulations for doing one (a selfie).

Nowhere describes Syria's disintegration as a nation more acutely than her shattered second city of Aleppo. No where describes the agony of Syria more acutely than that city's Darshifa Clinic. Despite the almost complete lack of medical staff, drugs, equipment and even sanitation, the clinic tends the cascades of brutally injured civilians and fighters alike pouring through its door.

So now we have a house on a road with trees lining the street and an alarming fascination with vintage furniture. It's almost as exciting as the time I thought Jon Snow winked at me in a guest lecture. He didn't.

Shall We Stuff the President?

Lenin has suffered considerably down the years. An ear fell off some time ago and had to be re-attached. Kenyatta had to be embalmed and, how shall I put it - 'stuffed' during the night hours so that the crowds could file past during the day. As the Venezuelans commit to embalming Hugo Chavez, they should perhaps take note of what has happened to these once great men. Stuffing a president doesn't do him any good in the long run. A glass case in a military building on public display may not prove the kindest ending for Hugo.

Do We Have the Political Ambition to 'Get Britain Cycling'?

Levels of cycling in Britain are amongst the lowest across Europe - only 2% of us use a bike as our main method of getting around. In the Netherlands, 20 times more journeys are made by bike by people under 17 than in the UK. And the main reason for this is the perceived lack of safety.

OK so we have hosed ourselves down, celebrated Jonnie Peacock, Ellie Simmonds and so very many more. But beyond our fading emotions, stirred in a way not one of us ever anticipated, what's left? For myself, and I guess many others, I do consider disability differently, visible disability for sure. I'm not so sure anything has advanced with regard to the less visibly disabled people amongst us.
