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.
As Theresa May continues her crusade to establish the ideal neocon police state, Muslims took to social media to express their frustration at the Government's latest Orwellian policy.
The government is planning new laws against coercive and controlling behavior within relationships - this could include financial control - preventing a partner seeing friends and things like setting oppressive house 'rules'.
At this moment in time UK officers have to contend with the fact that the edifice of British policing is rapidly crumbling, eroded by both cutbacks and politically expedient bile... The death of Neil Doyle will place a further dent in police morale yet of course it is still 'business as usual' as far as devastated but committed Merseyside police officers are concerned.
Speaking to me from Pakistan via Skype, a British-born man claims his family are victims of the UK's secret courts, after he and his three sons were stripped of their citizenship in 2011 for alleged links to Al Qaeda and a banned Pakistani terror group.
As many international students in the UK prepare for a Christmas period alone, because we cannot afford to fly back to see our families, the news of Theresa May's plans to deport us upon graduation comes as a low blow.
Today, our legal system is one step closer to being able to hold domestic violence perpetrators accountable for their crimes. It is one step closer to being able to accurately depict the true nature of domestic violence within the courtroom and further protect victims of domestic violence and their children.
Theresa May's thinly-disguised efforts to portray herself as the next prime minister must stick in the throats of Bbobbies on the Staffordshire beat.
The campaign wants to see a time limit of 28 days but as a Police and Crime Commissioner I would not want to see officers spending time away from inquiries and going to court to justify extending bail when, for instance, it is frequently the case that forensic science reports take a number of weeks.
In the first 10 days of #CameronMustGo trending on Twitter there have been in excess of half a million tweets using the hashtag. Behind in the polls, with Ukip snapping at his ankles like a Pekingese, the mass vote of no confidence in the prime minister is the last thing he needs as he hurtles towards the general election...
The guilt and responsibility for that lies with the terrorists who committed the crime. The security services - as the name implies - have the job of keeping us secure. But there is a public consensus that anyone in a position to prevent that terrible vicious murder should have done so.
