I want you to give this some thought. Should I or anyone else be stopped from doing what they want to do because they have a disability? The answer should always be no. Alas, with mental health problems like mine, I'm battling my mind constantly. What if? Did this happen? Will I?
The media were not decisive in the EEC referendum - they went with the clear winner from the start. But today, in 2016, the media's decision could swing the vote and result in us leaving the EU forever. They know this and they know that they will, at some point very soon, need to decide. And that's causing them all sorts of problems.
I know it's disgustingly middle class but I can't stop myself buying into the latest trendy superfood. I've become the person I once loathed - the person who buys pink Himalayan salt and kale crisps from ridiculously overpriced health stores run by white people with dreads.
British people are the most likely to say their press is right wing out of seven European countries - and the most likely to say the press is too negative about immigration...
Kids get it. They get it totally. This week we asked them what they thought about Save The Children's call to let 3,000 unaccompanied child refugees in Europe, into Britain. We had the quickest ever response to a poll Overnight, 2,275 children registered their vote with 93% of them agreeing with Save The Children.
I've been lucky enough to attend some major sports events during a long career - the Olympics included - but there's something very special about the Six Nations. It's the spectacle, the history and tradition, sold out stadiums across fabulous capital cities. Yes rugby fans love it, but so too my mum. Such is the appeal of this grand old tournament over 24million people tuned in last year on (BBC) TV in the UK with nine million alone watching the thrilling climax.
I don't need to tell you why this is a terrible thing but more women in advertising means more women in the workforce, more women represented fairly in the media and more women going on to become C-Suite, money making superheroes. If they drop out before they've signed their first contract the future looks bleak.

Yesterday, I got Guido'd. Like having your photo posted on Redwatch or in the Daily Mail, this is something anyone politically active on the left may have to deal with at some point. Of course, being a young woman, the attack takes on a specific character...
Despite constant coverage of ISIS, known by their Arabic name as Daesh, Western media has overlooked the fact that a large proportion of their victims are ordinary Sunni Muslims - the very people they claims to represent. By doing this they are unwittingly aiding the narrative that Daesh is representing all Muslims against the West.
This year on The Huffington Post UK we've had a think about the Dia dos Namorados and have reimagined it from a different perspective. Our Making Modern Love series will look at what love really means to Britons in 2016. Built on the three themes of finding love, building love and losing love, the HuffPost UK will explore human stories to inspire, empower, entertain and inform our readers. We'll be chronicling the stories of those who've found love in a hopeless place, we'll be looking at why couples are obsessed with making their declarations of love go viral and touch on why you people should nurture all relationships, not just the romantic ones.
There is nothing anti-feminist about wanting to look good or be desired, for yourself or for male attention. But there is something wrong when a self-proclaimed feminist tells other women how to behave.
As a Labour politician it isn't often that I defend a Tory. Maria Miller's past misdemeanors over expenses have been dealt with, losing her Cabinet seat. That has nothing to do with the recent Commons report on gender identity. Littlejohn's attack is just another cheap and nasty 'character assassination' in a desperate effort to undermine the report's legitimate findings.
Like most women I have navigated most of my life through a smorgasbord of insults and 'compliments' regarding my body - more often than not comments that somehow compared my body to food. I had to learn fast what food types it was ok to be and what were definitely not.
Bella sets her camera up on a tripod, making sure to position it in front of a window to get the most light. She checks herself in the camera screen, brushes her hair behind her ears, and takes a deep breath.
