The Left are finally taking Ukip seriously because we are taking their votes. We have seen a recent spate of bad news stories directed at Ukip. Ukip's founder, Alan Sked is setting up and alternative 'left wing Ukip' and Miliband advisor, Stewart Wood, let slip that Labour will probably sign up to a referendum before the next election.

No More Page 3 has never asked for parliamentary time or legislation, it does not affiliate itself to a particular party, it enjoys the support to those with the common sense and insight to realise the time has come for change.

Why Do the Media Act as a Mouthpiece for Vested Interests?

From the reporting, you might have thought this was just a group of public-spirited barristers taking a break from their highly paid jobs to protect the justice system. Maybe they were. But I can't help noticing that legal aid pays the fees of lawyers. Thus, any cuts to the budget come directly from their capacious wallets.

O'Sullivan writes about wanting a space where men feel comfortable to speak, and I can sympathise - feminism exists, in part, to give women the voice that they were so sorely lacking in mainstream society.

Down With the Matriarchy? What Matriarchy?

While I certainly agree that both men and women must recognise and escape the "confines of our gender", and that we need to acknowledge that we have all been ill-served by our culture's emphasis on certain gender stereotypes... I can't quite believe that it is truly down to women that men feel, well, emasculated.

The MOOC Avalanche

Helena Gillespie

My prediction for MOOCs in the UK is that we will find a way to bring them in to what we do. As marketing or public engagement, as adjuncts to our teaching or as curiosities, they are unlikely to become an avalanche that needs to be stopped.

Cut the Caricature of the Poor, Not Their Welfare

Why do those on benefits have to be caricatured or characterised in one way or another at all? There are thousands of decent, 'normal' people who are genuinely impoverished, and try to make ends meet as best they can

This was a jam-packed seminar and a jam-packed stage, with lots of passionate views. So congratulations to moderator David Pemsel for quickly popping the arguments over "who had the biggest data"... and focusing instead on data as an enabler.

Why the Guardian's Verbal Sexual Assault on Page Three Girls Is Baffling

Wasn't it the Guardian that first took up arms for equal pay, campaigned against violence against women and then prostitutes' rights? How time and class prejudice has corroded its values.

Why should politicians govern love? And who has the right to deny anyone the chance to love who they choose, man or woman?

However, it is with only cautious optimism that I welcome the shadow Education Secretary's proposals. This is because it appears his only motivation for supporting debate lessons in state schools is to ensure that private schools do not have an unfair advantage.

Julie Burchill's 'Transsexuals' Article Is a Triumph for Liberal Hypocrisy

Burchill is actually quite elegant in her dismantlement of the "vociferous transsexual lobby and their grim groupies". Shame her understanding of such communities amounts to a gross misrepresentation.

Perhaps what I personally respect about this podcast above all else is that it tip toes the line of respecting its audience and not simply patronisingly spoon feeding knowledge. It doesn't acquiesce to the demands of dumbing down nor does it hold any pretence about itself.

Whatever happens, it seems the days of buying a paper for the daily commute, or buying a Sunday paper in the morning to read leisurely in the garden, are dying. And I think that's a shame.
