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

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.

What Does Katharine Viner's Appointment Mean for the 'Guardian'

Paul Blanchard | Posted 28.03.2015 | UK
Paul Blanchard

While the mainstream media in the UK is dismissing Katharine Viner as someone who will ensure nothing changes at the Guardian, I suspect there are very big changes on the way. Not least the inevitable move to stop printing papers and become online only, and using non-journalists to write, first, comment pieces and regular columns - and then? Who knows.

Does Monbiot Ask Left to Break the Political Mould and Then Sit Down in the Pieces?

Mark Brewer | Posted 30.03.2015 | UK Politics
Mark Brewer

Monbiot is speaking to those of us who have, for some time, become disillusioned about the fact that any kind of drastic political reform (dare I say "revolution"?) seems impossible in this country. By pointing to reform of governmental bodies, tax reforms to a local-authority system, and the prevention on money-creation by private banks, Monbiot cooks up some tasty, Green morsels for the disillusioned left to digest.

Nathaniel Reilly-O'Donnell

I encourage any school to dare to be, be that school that offers challenges for their pupils to conquer, the school that prepares children for the world as well as their GCSEs. Creating the employees and employers you want to work with won't be solely done in the isolation of a classroom, nobody said "go work for her, she was great at GCSE physics".
