Over the past two years I have had the pleasure of working in politics, many people I have met and told about my struggle with mental illness within the political bubble have been understanding and compassionate, but others not so friendly towards the a young adult with mental health problems working in or around Westminster.
In short, we hear what journalists and politicians think the issues are and and how it affects Londoners - but we don't hear enough from Londoners themselves. And it is only by having an inclusive debate with all parties allowed a voice, that we will together take the tough decisions needed to tackle the London housing crisis.
The guilt and responsibility for that lies with the terrorists who committed the crime. The security services - as the name implies - have the job of keeping us secure. But there is a public consensus that anyone in a position to prevent that terrible vicious murder should have done so.
On hearing the Coalition speaking about TTIP, one can only conclude that they are unable to understand the legitimate concerns of those that rely on the NHS for their health, and need the rule of law and democracy to protect them. They say 'there's nothing to see here' when we can all see the potential threats to what we cherish.
The truth is that for any good Tony Blair did whilst in office it will never come close to eclipsing his decision to unleash a war on Iraq in 2003, a decision he took in defiance of the biggest mass movement the world has seen and on the basis not of faulty intelligence so much as a messianic and God-given sense of mission.
Sticking to a net migration target that means nothing is simply not the way forward. We need a government who will make promises it can keep and ensure that we remain a key player in the world to help us create the jobs of the future. David Cameron has shown again today why his government will not and cannot do that.
Yesterday something big happened in Parliament. Not many people will have noticed it, and not many words have been spoken or written on it either.
Now the 'architect of the vow' has bailed out. This was inevitable, as he'd already lost his seat next year as retribution for siding with the Tories during the referendum like the majority of the Labour MPs will find in May... So yet another major scalp Red Tory has fallen - Brown, Darling, Lamont, Sarwar, and more to come I hope.
Are you happy that the Daily Express is saying that we should consider public figures such as Prince Charles, Ed Miliband, Boris Johnson and Winston Churchill as migrants "hidden" from the British public by official statistics? And is it correct that the Express is suggesting that the children of Nick Clegg and, for that matter, Nigel Farage are "hidden migrants"?
Britain's politics is in a sorry state. I'm not talking about political issues, no. It's the mediocre level of the political conversation, amongst both politicians and journalists, which saps the spirit. This matters, for if you don't have a standard of discourse that facilitates honesty, nuance and fair-mindedness, then all areas of politics suffer.
The youth in Britain have been ignored for far too long, how we can be expected to engage in politics when all parties consistently neglect the wants, needs and opinions of the almost 10 million 18-30s of our country is beyond me.
Whatever happened to Help to Buy? Ministers seldom mention the government's two-part mortgage guarantee and equity loan scheme these days, yet it was initially heralded by the chancellor and the prime minister as a major Coalition policy... The reason is that the scheme has fallen rather flat.
Whether one sees immigration as universally wonderful, sensible in moderation and quality or as something harmful the facts are undeniable: a European country can rely on foreign workers to man its health service as much or as little as it wishes to.
As Brian Paddick put it on Twitter; if you hate what Ukip and now Labour and the Conservatives stand for, then it's time to reconsider voting Liberal Democrat.
Emily Thornberry is not the enemy of Britain's working class, the Sun newspaper, UKIP, and the dog whistle, reactionary politics promoted by both is. Only when the Labour Party, Dan Ware, and everyone else wakes up to this fact will we begin to move forward as a society.
The Conservative Party is leaking support across the board, and constituency opinion polls show them on course to perform worse in the marginal seats that they hold than elsewhere in the country. Why, many people are asking, isn't Cameron's leadership under serious threat?
