A recent headline in the Guardian: "Privately educated elite continues to take top jobs..." I read this story recently and my heart sank. Don't get m...

Whatever you think of Donald, let's just admit one thing: every vaguely liberal human person out there bloody loves him. It is like we have been suffo...

The Guardian Pretty Much Had To Correct This Entire Article

Let the Liberal Bastions Look Down Their Noses - Get Behind Clean for the Queen

Leon Spence | Posted 03.03.2016 | UK Politics
Leon Spence

So with my rant finished I shall look forward to my weekend litter picking, because I want to make my village look a little nicer, and let those miserable columnists continue to look down their collective noses a little while longer too. I know who will be having the most fun, and doing something worthwhile in the process.

Why Fashion Needs a Seat at the Table of Mainstream Education.

Francesco Loy Bell | Posted 03.02.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Francesco Loy Bell

This would inform people, spark an interest from a young age, and give a scope for creativity that is not currently present, without forcing people to solely study fashion. I am not putting other arts down, I am trying to bring fashion up to a similar position, and it is my belief that, with these changes in attitude and procedure, this is a very real possibility.

Charlie Hebdo and the Merits of Ignorance

Andrew Doyle | Posted 18.01.2016 | UK Politics
Andrew Doyle

I've always wanted to write about football. Up until now I've refrained from doing so on the grounds that I know absolutely nothing about it. I know that there are two teams who wear different colours, and that they have to get the ball into a big net, and that sometimes the TV coverage includes erotic slow-motion replays. But that's about the limit of my understanding.

Want to Improve Oxbridge State School Admissions? Stop Patronising State-School Students

David Browne | Posted 18.12.2015 | UK Universities & Education
David Browne

In order to actually tackle these issues, we surely need to first tackle the patronising and politicising of state school admissions in the first place, and realise that the problems of social mobility today go far deeper than Oxbridge.

What Happens Next?

Grainne Gillis

I'm sure my story is not unique by any stretch of the imagination - it's just that girls' stories don't tend to be allowed to be heard. And as a woman - I've had enough. Not only because I identify more with women's stories, but also because I believe the arts are failing because of the virtual exclusion of the world perspective of half the human race.

Looking Outside the Valley: Why British Tech Companies Can Make It Outside the US

Vanessa Whiteside

Most businesses dream of going global, and British tech companies are no exception to the rule. But while it seems obvious that the latest crop of Silicon Roundabout trailblazers (tech firms based in London's Tech City) should expand to their Silicon "sister" in California, that might not always be the right choice.

Our democracy, like every political system across the world, needs reform and will always need reform but before we throw the bathwater out, let's make doubly sure we've removed the baby first.

Feminism: A Dirty Word? Only in the Eyes of a Dirty Society

Liam Sheasby | Posted 26.06.2015 | UK Universities & Education
Liam Sheasby

Why is it that Feminism is a word with negative connotations? If you ask the British public whether they are in favour of equality the vast majority will say yes, they definitely are. They will rightly argue that we fought for it in the past and we pursue it in the present for ourselves and future generations. Now ask them if they are a feminist...

Prince Charles and the Guardian's Own Goal

Phil Hall | Posted 15.05.2016 | UK
Phil Hall

But also for the Guardian I think a crucial lesson has been learnt- never amplify anticipation un-necessarily as it can more often than not work the other way and open the floor to criticism.

A Week of Shame for the Left

David Browne | Posted 13.05.2016 | UK Universities & Education
David Browne

A week has passed since the day of the General Election, and while we are surely used to bad losers (and winners) after any democratic event in the country, the tone of the Far (and increasingly non-Far) Left in this case is in many ways terrifying, but ultimately shows the true colours of certain sections of the Left today: namely blind hatred; classist contempt; and fervent anti-democracy.
