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.

It is difficult to know whether novelty sock puppet Nigel Farage thinks he and his squinty-eyed troop of yokels have really become a force in UK politics or if he is in fact a fully paid-up stooge of a vast conspiracy of right-wing Tories who communicate via secret messages in the weave of their tweed that only they can understand.

State School to Pick Pupils on Rowing Ability - Why Your School Should Do the Same

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".

Before I begin the account of my first festival experience, it might be a good time to explain why my 28-year-old, party-adoring, find-any-excuse-to-drink-before-midday self has taken so long to get pitched. You see, I thought they were all about the music.

As a sales pitch, perhaps it leaves something to be desired. "Pay more, get less." Who could resist?

What Does 'The End of Hipster' Mean for 'Mipsterz'?

Furquan Akhtar

Personal experiences of hipsters are a far cry from Williamsburg, New York but instead it was like watching pockets of East London being swallowed up by a swarm of skinny jean wearing, flat white drinking locusts. As preened men were dubbed "Metrosexuals" and "scallies" evolved into "Chavs"; in my circle "Indie" became "Hipster".
