I ask each and every one of you to take part in the campaigning in any way possible, be that by supporting the campaign for gender-neutral toilets as those attending higher education institutions such as The University of Hull, Sussex, Bath, Manchester, Staffordshire, Bradford and Oxford have done or be it simply by supporting the use of gender-neutral pronouns it makes a difference and sets a foundation from which we can build a better more progressive future, together.

For a lot of people involvement in theatre, music and art can educate. It can battle isolation, loneliness and, as dramatic as it sounds, I believe that the love of art can be a reason to get up in the morning and live!

Stop yourself right there. Don't let yourself go down into a spiral of negativity as the deeper you go, the harder it will be to get out. Stop yourself before you even start on that downwards path. You know you're working hard and you're getting things done. You just struggle to get them done in the amount of time you'd like to get them done in.

UK Sport - World Class Success

David C. M. Carter | Posted 13.05.2016 | UK Sport
David C. M. Carter

The UK has a well-developed model to achieve 'good', however motivating Millennials to become great will be hard without change. We have 46 Olympic sports but to get to 60 Gold medals, most incremental medals will come from 'outside the model' (such as new sports like Snowboarding). How refreshing to witness a UK sports think tank engaging with how to achieve that. It made me proud to be British.

Are we asking for radical change to the constitution of the UK? No - we're asking for a truer democracy, one where everyone gets and feels involved in the creation of their community. By returning the power to change things to those that need it most, this could well be seen as a great change so the question becomes 'Are we asking for radical change?' Yes - we're asking for a truer democracy.

My daughter wants to be an actress. Words that should strike fear into the heart of any right thinking parent. I've gently tried to discourage her from what I perceive as a harsh life, but she comes alive on stage and has held on to this ambition to the exclusion of other childhood dreams.
