It is not a good time to be young. Our youth are bearing the brunt of the economic depression and its self-defeating solution of austerity and cuts.
The marchers had dressed their cause with placards warning of "creeping Islamazation" and the "threat of Sharia", their chants hitting the more base notes of the late Oriana Fallaci, interspersed with modified songs from terraces: "We're the famous EDL".
Every job sector now demands work experience but unless it's relevant, your chances of getting that job are slim. Employers don't care if you answered phones or helped out on a farm, if the job you are applying for doesn't use phones and isn't on a farm.
Having seen many examples of child abuse in my 15 years of experience as a personal injury lawyer, I can tell you that victims expect and deserve to be treated the same, regardless of the race or religion of those responsible for their suffering. Would we really expect anything different?
if London Metropolitan University failed to keep records of its students, then it should be held liable. Though one can also perhaps sympathise with the Universities based in a country where carrying and proving of id is considered a civil liberty issue.
What has been discussed is some presumption of ongoing consent from earlier consensual sex but that is untenable since nobody can tell from a sleeping person whether they do or do not want to repeat the experience.

I read the news that Anders Behring Brevik has been declared 'sane', with a sense of relief for those who will now see the man punished for the despicable crimes, which he committed with malice and prior forethought. I also had a sense of triumph for those fighting the stigma and misunderstandings surrounding mental illness.
Many of you may have already made your minds up and would describe your views as irreversible. So was the removal of my foreskin.
In 1996 I got my first MP3s. Storage was expensive, so I burned files onto CD-ROMs. There were 10 to 12 audio CDs on a CD-ROM. Conversion of an audio...
These words, describing the events that shape our lives, enrich our vocabulary and add to the historical lexicon of our language. For English evolves; it always has and often in unexpected ways.
Orwell called sport an "unfailing cause of ill-will". It might seem strange to attach that pejorative to a Games so clearly enjoyed by so many, but witness the Twitter reaction after the US beat Japan in the basketball, or the innuendo thrown at 16-year-old Chinese swimmer Ye Shiwen.
The Irish Times, the newspaper and media organisation for which I work, has embarked on what might be termed a "slightly radical" initiative.
As a BPAS employee, Cath Sutton's first priority will inevitably be to deflect attention from what they're doing by, in my opinion, lying about what we do. The photos Abort67 uses, however, are accurate depictions of the results of what BPAS does to babies. Sutton and BPAS are frankly lying when they accuse us of shouting at or insulting women.
