Simon Greenwood-Haigh

Education needs to account for some of the solution and food activists Jamie Oliver and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall are pushing the agenda by launching a War on Waste and bringing Wonky Veg to the fore. We need to re-define what is meant by waste or 'not fit for human consumption'.

Western Identity Politics Drives The Outrage Bus Off A Cliff

Paul Blanchard

I absolutely agree that we should celebrate the rising voices and confidence of the people in our society who have been marginalised, sometimes victimised and often ignored. But it is true that a large cross-section of people on the left - of every race, religion and social class - have become increasingly narrow-minded and shrill.

Perhaps the biggest, almost unnoticed compliment paid to the police came as the popular Rampage sound system was closing. The DJ's, who had exercised a remarkable degree of control over a large and boisterous crowd, put a 'shout out' for the officers of the Metropolitan Police. Praise indeed.

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 01.02.2017 | 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 17.01.2017 | 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 17.12.2016 | UK Universities & Education

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.
