For many of us it has been dispiriting to read the reports and analysis, weighty and otherwise, let alone to have the meanderings of a 20-year-old receptionist making no claims to intellectual weight held as somehow totemic of education or, implicitly, women.
Looking beyond short-term political point scoring, could the current cost of living crisis be the symptom of something much wider?
Those of us who are proud to be professional lobbyists believe strongly that our industry needs to be transparent, and open to informed and intelligent scrutiny. But I'm not sure that is quite what Tamasin and Andy have achieved in their article...
Female pornstars can't win: they are labelled victims, and if they try to defend what they do for a living, this is taken as proof of just how 'oppressed' they are. According to SPC and Object, their voices are not worth hearing. This is why we are protesting outside the SPC conference from 3pm on Saturday 15 March.
Are you a Nationalist? I often ask myself the question, '"Am I a Nationalist?" Ah... nationalism. That seemingly pivotal word. I found it hard to use myself twenty years ago and often succumb to the fear of its worst interpretation. It's used and misused hugely but never more scathingly than when its held up as the nightmare we must all retreat from.
Has our generation lost the conviction too question what we stand for anymore ? Do we even believe in anything that has merit, and when I say merit, I mean a strong conviction, that robs us away from that awful saturated celebrity fat...
It was once said that Sir Thomas More's silence echoed across Europe. Ed Miliband's words on Europe, on the other hand, have fallen down into bottomless pit. He is advocating the worst of all worlds... In short, Ed Miliband is telling the British people that they are stuck with the EU as it is.
There is simply no evidence for the Lib Dem innuendo about British jobs being dependent on EU membership, an innuendo based on misrepresenting the economic analysis and the evidence.
I have always wanted to be in an action thriller. Such fleeting fantasies tend to find me when travelling. Every woman under the age of forty has and no doubt continues to fanaticise about staring in their own music video.
Ed Miliband's announcement that the Labour Party would only commit to an in/out EU referendum in the event of major EU treaty change sets up a significant fault line between his party's policy and that of the Conservatives.
The Syrian people have suffered more than most can possibly imagine. March 15th will mark the third anniversary of this barbaric war on civilians and a campaign is gathering to both show solidarity and inspire political change. Three years of failure by the world to end the appalling suffering.
Electoral fraud should be taken seriously, but abandoning postal voting would risk disenfranchising millions of voters. In seeking to protect our democratic processes, we must always stay vigilant about unlawful practices at elections.
It was British ingenuity that led to the development of the World Wide Wide 25 years ago today and unfortunately it appears British guile will be responsible for its possible demise. The hopeful beginnings of the Web have turned sour.
If Mr Miliband becomes the Prime Minister he says, in contrast to Mr Cameron, his administration will not seek to spend its first two years seeking to renegotiate Britain's relationship with Europe and then submitting the outcome of any such renegotiation to a defining referendum in 2017.
Last week Sir John Oldham published his long awaited report on health policy for the Labour Party. In his foreword Sir John describes one of the key political challenge of successful reform...
We have all wondered how Western people look like in everyday situations, behind the veil of exoticism that surrounds their mysterious culture. Photographer Adam Vaijan has spent years documenting everyday life in the West and the results are a startling mix of the magical and the ordinary...
