Turn away if you choose; mute them on social media; try your best not to read anything about how they vote - but never think that they have any sort of responsibility to stay in one lane. Art and politics have been in the same lane for time immemorial, and that isn't going to change any time soon - for Donald Trump or anyone.
On 8 March the Chancellor must show that he understands both the immediate care crisis and the need for a radical and sustainable long term solution. Older and disabled people and their families and carers have been waiting too long for the answer. Let's hope that their expectations aren't dashed yet again.
With debts cut by a sufficient amount, Greece should then incrementally exit the Euro at a stable rate, probably having a dual currency for a time. Markets do not like shock, and a progressive exit is, for me, the logical and reasonable solution. The alternatives are just too hideous to contemplate.
It's disappointing yet unsurprising. Three years on from the independence referendum, Labour politicians are still painting their lost Scottish voters as gullible sheep beguiled by divisive nationalism.
Hold on to your hats folks - storm Doris might have blown through but the educational storm is sticking around for some time yet.
She's right. Until we start investigating why some things are working, we're not going to be able to fix the things that aren't.
Although our changing political and ethical landscape is worrying for the LGBT+ community, it does present corporates with an opportunity to make a real difference to their employees by taking a stand. Alongside proactive diversity and inclusion strategies in the workplace, Pride in London could be one way of doing this.
If we could remove some of the hurdles that those within the criminal justice system face in order to simply access arts-based programmes, it would free up more time for the actual programmes to be run and therefore the support to be given to those who really need it.
This is not the time to let Britain off the hook entirely. Actually, it never would be. We are too close and there are too many bushfires raging in this world, be it across the pond in America or in so many other places - think Russia, Ukraine, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Nigeria, Kenya etc. etc.
The main drivers behind Brexit are not democracy and sovereignty but xenophobia and bigotry. As such, no self-respecting Labour leader should be doing anything other than resisting it with all his muscle and mind. How dare Jeremy Corbyn proclaim that we should respect this tawdry and squalid referendum result.
I'm not saying MPs are working every hour there is, but I think it's useful for people to get a flavour of what things are like in the House of Commons, and what we're really up to, especially when it's so unusual to see a packed chamber.
I started my medical training in Germany more than 20 years ago and after a short placement in the UK I knew I wanted to work here permanently. As a GP working in the NHS, I thought that would always be the case, but the increasingly negative rhetoric surrounding Brexit has made me question my future here.
This week we've learned from the government's leading Brexiteer, David Davis, that the UK will be putting British jobs and living standards at risk for nothing more than the illusion of 'taking back control' of our borders.
With everything else going in Washington, it's worth paying attention to the Court, it's where lasting and seismic change could take place.
