The Liberal Democrats will do a lot of talking at their conference in Glasgow this week, so it's worth remembering the single most important truth about them: Nick Clegg has repeatedly said one thing and then done another.
The last time that Dr Carney took a seat in front of parliament's Treasury Select Committee the atmosphere was amiable and chatty... His appearance at this week's meeting was not entirely the antithesis of this, but it certainly represented a change. Unfortunately, at points during the questioning, Carney was his own worst enemy.
This week I set the people of Twitter a more topical challenge. Angela Merkel's campaign team have produced an augmented reality app that makes the co...
While World Cup qualification is arguably the most prominent thing in most Chilean and Welsh people's minds right now, the two countries have another topic of conversation in common: organ donation.
The NHS recognises, on paper at least, that a rapid decline in a person's mental or emotional state can be treated as a mental health emergency; 'It's important to get help as soon as possible.' In practice, however, I would question what commitment exists in our hospitals...
It is easy for security analysts, former Islamist penitents and politicians to rely on ready made narratives on why the UK is still producing Jihadists... But ultimately acceptance of these easy narratives has lead to misunderstanding and wrong policy decisions. The truth is our post-Enlightenment mind finds it difficult to comprehend men who look at the world differently from us.
I've discovered that a driving holiday in rural central France with intermittent internet access is not the best way to hear that Parliament has been imminently recalled, or the best place from which to act on the information. Result? The logistics of getting back in time have beaten me and I'll still be on the road back to the UK when Parliament meets on Thursday.
Miranda's arrest and Rusbridger's revelations should alarm those members of public who still believe that the British government acts in the best interests of democracy and freedom. It is evident that, in the words of Kirsty Hughes of Index on Censorship, "it seems that the UK government is using, and quite likely misusing, laws to intimidate journalists and silence its critics".
The NCA will be responsible for co-ordinating the fight against organised crime, which is estimated to cost between £20 and £40 billion a year in Britain. Predictably the NCA has become the latest agency to be hailed as "Britain's answer to the FBI".
Claims this week of a 'toxic cocktail' poisoning the NHS might be accurate enough, but they do little to aid in the campaign for real change to standards of care in UK hospitals.
Gibraltar relies upon the 11m day-trippers who visit the Rock each year to sustain a tourism industry which, alongside off-shore finance and gambling companies, accounts for the vast majority of the income to the Gibraltar economy.
But have the government got the wrong end of the leash again? While it can be argued that the current two-year maximum tariff is too lenient, will tougher sentences, post-event, do anything to address irresponsible dog ownership or reduce the proliferation of aggressive bull breed dogs on our streets, or indeed prevent dog attacks from taking place?
People assume that CEOs in the charitable sector work for minimal pay. However, they fail to take into consideration the fact that these leaders are running multi-million pound organisations and that large charities require highly qualified individuals with management expertise.
Over 4000 miles from Sheffield and a year after departing South Yorkshire, James Mahon is ploughing a lone furrow as an Irishman on TV news in America...
What can be achieved online is staggering. Information about any topic imaginable is available in an instant. Whether you're conducting serious research or just looking to satisfy an idle curiosity, your thirst for knowledge can be sated with a few clicks of the mouse.
If you believe the headlines people are going hungry in Britain today. The only reason they are not starving to death is because soup kitchens, food banks and other charitable schemes are springing up to serve those in most desperate need... But scratch the surface a little beneath these shocking headlines and you might find you come to a rather different view.
