The uncanny parallels that merge the two countries of Nigeria and Great Britain are truly mind-boggling. The historical coming together of both entities about three centuries ago has somehow resulted in a weird morphing of the most unlikely national psyches.
Dear Boris, Yesterday on your Facebook page, you posted a lengthy diatribe against 'Lefties', which captured my interest.
I went to my local Labour Party ward meeting last Thursday night. I live in Gospel Oak, Camden, in the parliamentary constituency of Holborn and St Pancras. Our candidate is Keir Starmer who has taken the reins from long standing MP Frank Dobson...
The situation surrounding Prime Minister David Cameron and the will-he-won't-he with the TV election debates is fairly amusing from the outside, but it provides a huge insight into how politicians actually view the press.
If Nick Clegg really does believe drugs aren't a big deal, why doesn't he start making the case for real legalisation in a regulatory framework, protecting the consumer's health, protecting their liberty and undermining the criminal organisations that profit from the trade of illicit drugs?
If Mr Clegg is as committed to drug policy based on evidence as he maintains, perhaps he needs to reconsider.
All it needs is a reminder of what Nick Clegg's done, of our betrayal. A reminder that £6000 fees aren't good enough, that a graduate tax isn't good enough. A reminder of the intrinsic value of education. And a reminder that the fight must continue.
The way our transport system works, with an apparently acceptable amount of death and injury, has to stop. We need serious investment in change. £10 per head per annum on cycling is a drop in the ocean. We need much more than that if we are to turn the juggernaut around and let our cities and cycling thrive.
Prohibition simply does not work. Look at alcohol bans in the US in 1920 - they were disastrous, and led to a prohibition repeal a decade later.
Recovery is not a straightforward process. There are plenty of treatment options available (unfortunately at a price, but hopefully this will change...but they do exist), and some treatments are more appropriate for different types of eating disorders, others suit a person better.
In many ways the 2015 General Election has now taken on the qualities of a guerrilla campaign. Attacks and mishaps that would cause serious damage to a regular force are brushed off by the plucky insurgents of Ukip, the SNP and the Greens, who know their terrain and often have the mobility to evade their more powerful but cumbersome opponents.
If I could have things any other way, I would not choose to spend so much time planning my meals, working out my feelings to avoid potential anxiety attacks later on in the day, and all the money I and my parents have spent on therapy over the years.
The Liberal Democrats are still forecast - by virtue of their ability to agree terms with either a Conservative or Labour led government - to have a better than 50% chance of being in Government after May. So who is still supporting the party and meaning it has a chance to, again, be a governing party?
The leaders of the three largest parties have now jointly stated that climate change is one of the most serious threats facing the world. They agree that it threatens not just the environment but also security, prosperity and poverty eradication.
I really don't get Labour's campaign at the moment. It's like they're heading into a football match with a 10-0 advantage, up against nine men who are all in blindfolds, and they still end up getting trounced.
Young voters are looking for something different, something promising: a Blair-esque figure for this generation. If the Conservatives and Labour believe that the young vote is so important, then it's time they start appealing to the young voter and show what they're offering, instead of turning the House of Commons into a playground.
