Article 50: Why We 'Remoaners' Won't Go Quietly

29th March 2017 is a dark day and I believe those that brought it about will not be remembered kindly by history, regardless what happens next. For as long as we are still in the EU, millions of us will continue to voice our opinion and to fight for the UK to remain in the EU. And if we do leave, we will campaign to re-join.

Our Children Deserve Better Than Political Apathy

I can't afford to be politically apathetic anymore. I have a daughter, who is almost three, and I need to set an example. I need to show her that if there is something in this world that you think is unjust, the last thing you should do is "suck it up" and ignore it.

For many of us it does seem kind of strange that there is still an ivory market of any kind. There's nothing pretty about seeing the remnants of a dead elephant on your wrist or mantelpiece. For most it isn't only times that have changed - our attitudes and understanding have too.

In the Fight Against Climate Change, Our Refusal to Have Children Is One Argument Politicians Can't Ignore

Women not having children historically bothers authority. And while they may do so for myriad reasons today, as more and more women follow suit and cite the environment as the cause, it will be interesting to see what happens: whether politicians, apparently deaf to the marches, petitions and scientists, will listen to prospect of our hollow wombs.

The Elephant March

Friday 4th October 2013 will be an historic day. I know this because it cannot not be. In some ways it's just simple predictive history, in others it's a stirring, a surge or the tremors that result in a tsunami. Either way, it will be an historic day. For on this day that thing will happen that pushes a wedge of change, whether it be in the corridors or power or in the thoughts of the individual.

The Rise of Atheism Represents Significant Progress for Northern Ireland

Like any country with a reputation for extremism, it's history will always be judged on the actions of extremists. The usual saying that history is judged by the victors does not yet apply to Northern Ireland, as it sometimes seems that the state of conflict has never really ended in the minds of much of its population.
