Uruguay: Gay Marriage, Legal Dope and Gender Based Violence

Sophie Bauer | Posted 30.11.2016 | UK Universities & Education

GBV is the ugliest, most demeaning manifestation of gender inequality. Uruguay is a country that proves case in point that responding effectively to an issue as complex and deeply rooted as this requires so much more than services. It is also a question of changing cultures and mindsets.

Though the supermarkets and high street chains do a good job of bringing a fair variety of world wines to the UK public, sometimes you have to go just a little more off piste to find the more esoteric and unusual, and that certainly applies to this week's Wine of the Week.

The Spanish giants announced his signing, subject to medical, yesterday, at a cost of around £75million. A move to Spain is one which Suarez has long hankered after, so maybe his action was less career suicide, more cunning strategy.

So the main issue then, is that biting is so bafflingly blatant, so far removed from the comprehensible vagaries of football, that this four month veto is really a punishment for outrageous stupidity. It's the third time!

Saj Devshi

To be completely honest it was never time for him to even step into the role of the England manager. His track record is weak and it's questionable how he was selected in the first place or why. I believe his selection was because he's someone that wouldn't cause the FA any trouble and would just get on with it.

t's an oft-used cliché, but, with an exciting and honest style of play, Gus is one of football's good guys - and will become an even more desirable commodity in world football.

Thing is, when Luis Suarez decided to bite Branislav Ivanovic, he wasn't exactly on my list of favourite footballers. Even before his impression of a petulant toddler that hasn't been allowed a biscuit, he was already a deplorable human being.
