The time for talking on this subject is over. We are facing a major humanitarian disaster. If nothing is done to prevent another attack, a far worst catastrophe should be expected, and the people of Iran who are a nation holding their breath for a democratic change, will hold those capable of doing something about this situation, completely responsible, for the murder of their brothers and sisters at Camp Ashraf.
As someone who submitted evidence to the committee's inquiry, I'm glad they see both the need for a real strategy to tackle deprivation and the inadequacy of the government's response (in England, anyway: the Scots and Welsh are more enlightened).
As we enter November, we reach the 21st anniversary of Margaret Thatcher's resignation as prime minister. Despite the melodrama of more recent political events, it's hard to imagine what Westminster must have been like in the three weeks between Geoffrey Howe quitting the cabinet and Thatcher leaving office. Or is it?
"It is no secret that Tories in the south want to leave Scotland in darkness, but fixing the clocks to British summertime would mean that dawn wouldn'...
With an increasing number of people calling for change, it is an irrefutable fact that Mr Hunt's support for unpaid internships only diminishes attempts at reducing the disparity between elitism and equality. When will these people be called out for the exploitation they so openly support?
Although democracy may be the least bad system of government, it does not have all the answers, particularly if the democratic desires of two or more countries are in conflict with each other.
The Fox affair yet again demonstrates the media's inability to ascertain what is, and what is not, a 'lobbying scandal'. It also demonstrates a peculiar and irritating habit of putting the lobbying industry in the frame rather than seeing when it is the lobbied - not the lobbyists - that need to pull their socks up.
It would appear we are not the only ones concerned about future disorder on the streets of Britain. ComRes released figures this week from a poll of MPs taken last month. The poll of some 151 MPs found over half of them believe that the events of August will not be unique in this parliament - a worrying statistic.
We are now into the full swing of the party conference season, with all the usual bombast and political posturing that comes with it. It is a time when politicians often seem to be in a world of their own.
Earlier on this month, as my summer drew to a close, I published a report online in time for parliament's return on 5th September. It had taken the majority of my summer to write and was, by far, the most comprehensive piece I had ever written.
Will such common sense make progress in a political landscape dictated by the flexible morals and ethics of the right wing media? One worries, not a jot.
I wonder who the woman MP was who Andy Burnham saw strolling across Westminster Bridge 10.30pm one night with her baby in a buggy, having just finished work. For anyone who thinks MPs have an easy time, this is the reality for those with young families who are dedicated to political life and serving their constituents.
David Cameron is a lucky man. Just when things seemed to be getting messy in Libya, when the word 'stalemate' was being heard more and more often and when there was seemingly a collective slumping of the international shoulders and an acceptance that we were in it for the long run, the rebels toppled Gaddafi. With Gaddafi gone, Cameron may think he can breath a sigh of relief. Whilst he can certainly be pleased with the fact an undeniably evil dictator is gone, there are a whole host of problems - at home and abroad - that now need to be addressed.
The debate around a woman's right to choose on abortion is often thought of as mainly about term limits. It's easy to forget that there are many more obstacles which can be put in the way of women seeking to end an unwanted pregnancy.
In the last thrashes of Gordon Brown's Labour government, the Prime Minister and the consecutive Home Secretaries of Alan Johnson & Jacqui Smith once more took political umbrage with cannabis.
Abortion providers are motivated to increase their revenues and grow their market share. Like any business, they employ business development managers
