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.

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?

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.

Our Youth Hate Themselves

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.

In a nutshell, it seemed to me that the women wanted to live a traditional life but have unrestricted leeway enabling them to be independent whenever or wherever they decide, regardless of any prior situation, circumstances or statements to the contrary.

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

Steven Stewart | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Steven Stewart

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?

There are certain conversations that irk me. A fan of actual conversations, ones that require honesty and direct experiences that someone cares about, tend to give way to the following kind of interactions that are confused as conversations:

A Little Respect

Lisa Clarke | Posted 08.08.2013 | UK Lifestyle

So, now and then, it seems The Sun takes itself seriously, it grows up and cleans up its act as a show of 'respect' for a particular tragedy and, in doing so, its editorial team reveal two important things.

Why Women Inspire Me

What I do know is for one day, inside the walls of the Hospital Club, I felt listened to, valued and welcomed for who I am. The power of that unity between women is what we need to build upon for a future where everyone can aspire to have their all.

Who Needs the State to Smash the Radical Left When Feminists Are Doing Such a Fine Job of It?

Brendan O'Neill | Posted 10.05.2013 | UK Politics
Brendan O'Neill

I'm no fan of the Socialist Workers' Party, so I won't be losing much sleep over the fact that it is currently imploding under the weight of two sex scandals. But I do find it intriguing that this intellectually moribund organisation is having the final nail pounded into its coffin, not by the state or by the right, but by feminism.

Quite simple really. In essence, I want to see that England kick on from the New Zealand game. I want to see that they have not wallowed in the result for too long and I want to see that they have the steel and desire to move on and improve from it. Not too much to ask is it?

Have We Given Up Being Nice?

We have lost respect for our fellow human beings. We don't respect their personal space, their feelings, their boundaries, them full stop. We have become so self-obsessed we can't see as far as our own nose. We have so much yet nothing is ever enough. It all spells one word. Ingratitude.

Love isn't just something we 'fall' into and stay in permanently. We can't just expect that our intimate relationship will just tick over without us doing anything about it. Instead, love relationships are the classic case of 'effort in, reward out.'

It was Sunday afternoon. I was cold, wet and bored. And a 13-year-old boy had just called me a 'f***ing b*stard'... This is the kind of behaviour, completely unacceptable in the real world, that passes for normal in the world of kids' football.
