It appears some parochial inhabitants of Westminster would have preferred Britain's Prime Minister, when asked whether he would stand for a third term in office when he has yet to complete his first, to obfuscate or fib. Better for a PM to pretend his passion for power knows no end date.
Little wonder then, that just before a general election, it has been politically expedient to shine the 'cover up spotlight' on a battered, bruised and demoralised police service.
As the number of Muslim signatories continues to increase, it will be interesting to see what tangible actions will be taken moving forward by the various figureheads to get their grievances taken seriously.
Harmondsworth detainees claim that staff members restricted their access to water on Tuesday, as "punishment" for aiding a Channel 4 investigation into the treatment of asylum seekers.
We have a tradition in Britain of caring for people all around the world and the response to Jimmy's story shows British compassion at its best. All we need now is Theresa May to join the public and do another random act of kindness: let Jimmy stay.
If the government wants to prove it's serious about justice and protecting vulnerable people, then it will recognise that the detention estate is a product of the dark ages. Instead of tinkering with processes, Ministers should focus their efforts on consigning the whole system to the history books where it belongs.
With counter terrorist units at airports struggling to cope with workloads that have doubled, they also have to attempt to fill the gaps left by the absence of outbound border controls. Too few officers and too many flights make this a near hopeless task.
The age of freelancing is at its peak, meaning more and more people are choosing to reject the daily grind of traffic, expensive commutes and being confined to the same desk for forty odd hours a week.
The recent attacks in Paris and Copenhagen, and the London and Madrid bombings ten years ago, were an attack on our core values: respect for life, freedom and tolerance. We must stand up to protect these fundamental principles and values.
Britain is on the cusp of making history in the upcoming general election. It will either look back at May 2015 with regret or with great pride. With immigration one of the major issues debated in this election, I appeal to students in particular to lead British society against xenophobic attitudes and make this general election about fairness and equality of opportunity.
The marketization of higher education is an uncomfortable topic for many in the UK education sector. My own view is that higher education is both a market benefit and indisputably a public good, and a mixed approach is required.
Higher education is one of the most lucrative exports Britain has got. Not only is it worth about £70billion to the economy, but the country's top universities play a crucial role in consolidating Britain's withering reputation as a global superpower. With that in mind, any move to stifle industrial investment amounts to little more than a horrifically irresponsible, self-inflicted shot in the foot...
Make no mistake, moderate British Muslims have been expressing their concerns as to the rise of Islamic extremism in the UK since the 1990's and could well argue that they have already made a significant contribution to curbing the excesses of fanatical, Islamist groups.
Theresa May said the UK has to "wipe out anti-Semitism". The BBC has now featured an article about Jews in the UK fearing for their safety, but unfortunately this doesn't surprise me at all. This new interest in British anti-Semitism stems largely from the attacks in France, and it's a shame that it took such a tragic event for Brits to begin to consider the problems here at home.
I know this isn't just me feeling this way, so please be careful with your words, you could be marginalising an entire population. Really we know you can't help but ask Muslim people their opinion on what are shown by media channels as a Muslim issue. But please discuss other things too.
There is little doubt, as has been made abundantly clear by the head of MI5 Andrew Parker, that the UK will suffer terrorist attacks in the future. The major difference however is that unlike France, terrorists in the UK will be faced by a largely unarmed police force which, in many parts of the country, could pose serious problems.
