All in all, SASUUM initiated the eye-opening dialogue that will usher in a new dawn of engagement with African affairs.
On numerous occasions, I have seen mothers so absorbed in their task of interacting with their smartphones that they totally ignore the child's plea to talk and interest them in what s/he is observing and thinking.
The present system of the BBC Trust is out of date. It is wrong to consider that an organisation be run by a trust as well as by a company that it is supposed to manage the business. It would seem perfectly normal to understand that the licence holders are no different than shareholders.
On Sunday, The Huffington Post UK imposed a 24-hour ban. On men. We decided to only use pictures of women on the front page - except for Richard Branson, who we'll get onto later. You may well be thinking this is censorship. This is prejudice against men. Yes, it is.
I am a great supporter of this fundamental principle of democracy and I expect it is exercised in good faith and without deliberately distorting the obvious truth. An article published on 8 March by the Daily Mail, with the title "Romanian fury over Channel 4 documentary as their MPs ask: What if we made a programme saying all Brits were alcoholics and paedophiles?" doesn't make me question the principle, but the author's good faith and respect for the truth.
Oborne is right that HSBC's behaviour in helping clients avoid tax was shameful (if not illegal) but he's wrong that the Telegraph's response was just as shameful or immoral. If you're a cynic like me, you might view it as not terribly unusual. And you might wonder how interested the newspaper's readers will be once the story has died down.
The entire press industry seems to be founded and carried out upon a contaminated money making, ego drilling field where journalists who do see better get ensnared in the pressure to oblige their editors and proprietors.
Let's change the narrative. We fought side by side during WWII, we are close allies in Nato and partners in the EU, we are "Europeans", people who believe in the same values, friends and neighbours. It is true that each local authority in England must have experienced change because of immigration. Local circumstances, tensions or problems cannot be ignored. But let us try and think how to integrate migrants better.
Without the license fee, the BBC wouldn't have been able to establish the web services leaving other broadcasters in the shade - my service users would consider that a reason for keeping the fee, not abolishing it, and like any business owner I should put them first, surely?
There has been a collective failure to attract a younger audience to politics and current affairs. This is in very large part the fault of the parties themselves. Trying to blame the media would be foolish and wrong. They do, however, have a contribution to make.
I know it sounds daft (although not as daft as The Greens' housing policies) but before we jump up and down and crucify her (I may already be a bit late) let me make my argument.
Sky News recently revealed that only 18% of 16-24-year-olds in the UK trusted mainstream media to provide them with relevant information. It's a media generation gap which is threatening to swallow up decades of newspapers, magazines and broadcast channels.
Peter Oborne quits the Telegraph. He accuses them of bad things. He says they pander to advertisers, drop stories and run populist headlines. Everyone who cares says 'wow!' and the Telegraph gets a kicking on Twitter. That's the upshot of the story. But even if the Telegraph did do all these things, why was Oborne so surprised and shocked?
Why do I bring this up? Well at a time when it looks like disabled people are claiming their rightful place in our society, I am worried that the ground we have made again could easily be lost. Especially if we forget that this ground is that which we already once held.
The shameful scenes from Paris of a handful of Chelsea fans bullying, and racially harassing a black man on the Metro will do little to soothe the caustic image of British football in the eyes of the world...
Feminism was supposed to be about enabling women (and men) to choose how they want to live their lives. Now, though, it has been twisted and distorted into a ridiculous expectation that every woman must be all she can be, to realise (or even exceed) her potential in every area.
