If people question the league's decision making when it comes to these sorts of issues and their supposedly contradicting punishments, how would they feel about a decision as large as moving one team halfway across the world?
British society still seems to place tangible symbols of wealth and power on a pedestal, and I think many see cyclists and view them as lesser forms of transport. Where, in fact, London should attach status to people who walk and cycle above all other forms of transport.
"It's the classic story of crash and burn," says Mark Baxter, the writer of the new documentary film Tubby Hayes: A Man In A Hurry which hopes to do for one of this country's jazz greats what Searching For Sugar Man (2012) did for Sixto Rodriguez.
Here is my challenge, to you and myself: lets not become a nation of zombie offices. Lets unplug our headphones, put down our phones, resist the urge to email and make sure we all take the time to speak to one another, share ideas and collaborate where we can everyday. Not only will this create much healthier and more vibrant offices, but we will be more productive too.
2014 brought a multitude of perspectives regarding the homeless in the UK from the spikes installed outside London shops and flats to deter rough slee...
The UK has a well-developed model to achieve 'good', however motivating Millennials to become great will be hard without change. We have 46 Olympic sports but to get to 60 Gold medals, most incremental medals will come from 'outside the model' (such as new sports like Snowboarding). How refreshing to witness a UK sports think tank engaging with how to achieve that. It made me proud to be British.
Last weekend the American Football team Jacksonville Jaguars announced two NFL Draft picks live from London - the first time a city outside of the US has ever been involved - and as my agency, Fast Track, look after the Jags' UK PR and social media we were on hand to support.
The Conservatives won the general election just, granted. Labour did shockingly badly, true. I am not saying that had online voting been an option this would be entirely different, but at least it would show signs of progress in a political system that seems to be getting stale and mouldy.
The climax of nine years protesting against plans to build flats next to an historic and iconic East London pub and music venue is nearing, as the family which owns The George Tavern in Shadwell are due at the High Court next week.
The range of stores in this super cute area is crazy - everything from the poshest naughty knickers at Coco de Mer, to fun accessories at my beloved Tatty Devine, and a whole world of arty potential that I could spend literally days exploring at the London Graphics Centre.
I walk past the cashier, feeling his malicious glance pierce the back of my neck. As I hand my friend Munchy a pack of Pot Noodles, an accusative, "ar...
Oh we do love a food trend us Londoners and one that is currently grabbing the capital by the goolies is Japanese. And not just your standard sticky yakitori skewers, hand-made sushi rolls and slices of delicate sashimi - but flavour combos that take Japanese tradition and send it down an unfamiliar road of culinary tangents and cultural roundabouts.
Meet Skylar Jordan, an American journalist who has raised $1500 - around £979 - to fly to the UK to write about the general election.
Smashing communities, laying up trouble and expense for the future. What can we do? Politicians are criminals. Vote for who you believe in. Tactical voting is rubbish. After the election, fight for every issue. Demonstrate. Build the public debate. Talk to people. The social media can help to build a wave of opposition to government crimes against humanity. Talk, talk, inform yourself. And most important show your face: Demonstrate. Build the opposition, see what happens - take it from there.

I started Stand up for Labour in July 2012 in a bid to cheer up Labour supporters and raise money for campaigning. Since then, we have managed to raise over £100,000 from events in England, Wales and Scotland. Friday sees Stand up for Labour's 150th event - and last event before the General Election - when we visit Coventry. This is a good time to reflect on the highlights of this comedy fest...
