The unemployed are far from valueless - far from the cynical self-serving schemers they are often made out to be. Instead, they have found ways to adapt, to live and to find worth in the world that is theirs at present.
The sooner student activists abandon this inward-looking, machine-like Labour Party leadership production line, the sooner the student movement might actually achieve something.
This power is now in our hands, or more precisely, at our fingertips. In sharing and commenting on these articles and petitions, we have begun to do away with the idea that we are unable to help or to change things.
The liberal elite's hegemony over the public discourse is longstanding and indeed we have seen this exact kind of thing before. The media's response to the likes of UKIP and the English Defence League (EDL), both movements with great appeal among the working class, has been to silence, ridicule, and marginalise them.
Costa Rica is one of the greenest destinations in the world. For first time travellers, it's an overwhelming arrest of the senses; unbelievable sights, a breathtaking backdrop, and a once-in-a-lifetime encounter with some of the most incredible creatures on earth.
The impact of permafrost thaw due to climate change is missing from the climate modeling in the IPCC's Fifth Assessment reports, yet its emissions co...
On Thursday October 23rd the Cambridge Union Society hosted a debate sponsored by Mendeley about the right to be forgotten online, and voted to oppose the motion. Gabriel Hughes, VP of Analytics at Elsevier and a former executive at Google, outlines his own stance in opposition and reflects on the overall debate.
We want to show young people that maths and science can open up endless possibilities for their future - and for Britain's future too. Our plan for education will ensure that we equip every child with the skills and knowledge they will need to succeed - and our message is that maths and physics can get them there.
For too long has sexual harassment and violence plagued the University institutions in the UK. For too long have these everyday sexism issues gone on. For too long have Universities failed to do anything constructive and effective about the issues that they are very much aware of. There is now such a dire need to tackle them head-on that it has fallen to students themselves to try and stop this phenomenon of 'rape culture'.
I had the privilege of interviewing England women's international highest goal scorer Kelly Smith and goalkeeper Siohban Chamberlain. The prospect of doing so was nerve-wrecking however, I was lucky enough to be part of a reassuring TV production crew..
Before many of us could even catch our breath after Britain nearly tore itself in two, England is at it again, playing roulette with our other closest, hard won political partnership.
I would love to believe that we now live in a meritocratic nation in which success depends on talent and hard work rather than connections and class. But it is evidently not so.
I think it is vital that we involve those directly at the centre of the issue - we must include women in discussions, and even in leadership roles, centred on the issue of sexual violence against women.
Sexual violence is a specifically reprehensible form of violence, and includes rape and any other attack of a sexual nature perpetuated against both males and females. Its repercussions can be iniquitous, and may include acute and physical repercussions for survivors and witnesses.

Okay, let's face it; when it comes to Budapest, the pun opportunities are pretty decent. But surprisingly, that's not the only reason I went there (we're talking, maybe, 23% of the decision?).
The duck who joined the Northern Irish boys on their motorcycle tour of Vietnam hit national headlines a few weeks ago. I was lucky enough to be in the Phong Nha bar the night that Matthew McInnes, Dan McAllen and their mates turfed up with The Captain, mid-tour.
