Can you communicate without nagging? Especially when someone neglects to do their bit, at home or at work? Or when there's a difference of opinion? Or when someone really irritates you? Do you quibble? Quibble is what we do when we find fault with small things, it's nit-picking unnecessary details.

"What Is Wrong With You?"

Naïve of me I know, but I always thought that it has to be the minority of people behaving like this. Surely society as a whole couldn't fail to accept these wonderful people, could it?

What Does Respect Mean Anyway?

I've been thinking a lot about respect lately. It all started around Remembrance Day, when a local FaceBooker took it upon herself to berate Walthamstowians for not wearing poppies. They were, she said, showing a lack of respect for the war dead.

Are 'British Values', Exclusively British?

Shohana Khan | Posted 25.05.2015 | UK Politics
Shohana Khan

The British values debate has refused to look with the open mind it claims to be shaped by, upon Islamic values and honestly ask why such a wide range of Islamic practices and views have been seen as a problem for life in Britain. This is not tolerance, but a sweeping wave of intolerance in the name of security, instead.

October 5 Is World Teachers' Day - Have You Said Thank You?

Kathryn Lovewell

Teachers are the unsung heroes of our society. They are often undervalued and unappreciated. They are the whipping boys, the scapegoats and the fall guys for what isn't working in our education system. Let's face it, teachers get a bad press. Almost without exception there is something negative mentioned about teachers in the media every day.

Have Some Manners, Please

What kind of world do we live in now that no one bothers to tell another human being to have a nice day? ... Good manners can make someone's day, so let's all just give it a go. I'm sure we'll feel much better about ourselves as a result, and the world will probably be much nicer.

The Darker Side of Fat Shaming

Vicky Frankland

There are other beliefs out there too however and these are the ones that I want to discuss today; specifically in relation to fat women. The kind of beliefs I am talking about are the darker side of the fat hating culture; the kind that people, men in the most part but also women, do not admit exist. So what are they?

When Is It Time to Dive In?

Sonja Lewis

When is it time to dive in? Recently, in the case of one London man who saw another floundering in the Thames, the answer was clear. After trying to help from the riverside to no avail, he took the plunge, even though he didn't consider himself a strong swimmer and remembered Emergency Services' general advice to wait for them.

I see trouble ahead...don't you? Our children are heading into the abyss of low self-esteem and self-loathing at a startling rate. Let's assess the recent incident in Magaluf. One young woman and 23 young men involved in a sexual act in public. I have read various viewpoints in the newspapers.

Why George Galloway Should Not Be Allowed to Speak on Any University Campus

Jonathan Hunter | Posted 25.03.2014 | UK Universities & Education
Jonathan Hunter

It is outrageous that this man has spoken to some of history's most evil personalities - yet he refused to debate with my fellow Oxford student, Eylon Aslan-Levy, purely because of his nationality. As Galloway plans to visit other campuses across the UK, I hope to use this blog to inform my fellow students that Galloway should never be made welcome on any University campus.

How the British Can Learn to Love Human Rights

Israel Butler | Posted 24.01.2014 | UK Politics
Israel Butler

Human rights have become toxic in Britain. There is no genuine public debate over the issue - debates are supposed to be two sided, and progressive forces have not yet found a successful response to calls to scrap the Human Rights Act and withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights... However, research on public attitudes suggests that this is a debate that pro-human rights forces could win.

The Nature and Nurture of Generation Y

Without much justification we expect Generation Y to respect and trust us, they don't, and they are pretty suspicious of our motives. As the older, more wise, generation we need to show young people respect and trust, and then they will show it to us.

Being A Customer Doesn't Give You the Right to Be a Bully

I have developed the same cynicism as most fully grown adults, yet this is underpinned by a general hatred of all human beings, particularly customers. I still work in customer service as I work my way through my studies, and I have come to learn that my first screaming idiot customer, isn't all that unusual.

The Man in Black: Changing the Paradigm

Kevin Blundell | Posted 25.11.2013 | UK Sport
Kevin Blundell

Football is a team game won by moments of individual genius - where players can turn from hero to villain in one moment of madness, change the future of a club with one kick of a ball and drift into the injured footballers void that surrounds the game. So why, when without the enforcer of these rules who make all competitiveness authentic, does the man in black become a figure of hate?
