I'll be marching on Saturday because the first rule of making a change is to do something about it. I'll be marching to encourage all the people who have looked at the world lately and thought: "Someone should really do something about this" - to believe that on Saturday that person can be them.
If you're troubled by Trump, or bovvered by Brexit, I have good news for you: there is something far, far more serious for you to be worrying about. Last year was the hottest year on record. So was the year before. And the year before that. Sixteen of the seventeen hottest years on record have been since the beginning of this century.
If the Prime Minister truly wants us to be a global outward looking country, she needs to look at the global impact the continued uncertainty over Kashmir's future is having and encourage all sides to resume talks. We cannot continue to champion our freedoms here at home whilst allowing them to be deprived to people abroad.
In an unprecedented move that will change trade, export and international relations as we know it, the Prime Minister has confirmed that the United Kingdom will be leaving the European single market and the EU Customs Union upon full withdrawal from the European Union in 2019.
Theresa May will be left to 'dependably get on with the job at hand' free from considered objections and legitimate concerns to decisions that will affect us all. Our futures are being gambled on with little more than a cursory look and we will have only ourselves to blame if we are left with rubble after the smokescreen clears.
It's a path that can lead to better products, better shopping experiences and better jobs. Although numerous dangers and obstacles lie ahead in the quest to turn ambition into reality, British retail now has a shot at an exciting future in a changing, post-Brexit world.
These are early days. Donald Trump has a serious job to do and we should wish him well in doing it - if only for selfish reasons. Personally, I wanted Hillary to win but that was not to be. It will take time for us all to adapt to the new President and his way of working. But now, like President Obama said at his final press conference, we should be optimistic: "we're going to be OK".
I don't think, in truth, that Trump cares at all about the coalminers, any more than cares about the treatment of staff in his own business. They were, I fear, a backdrop for his electoral ambitions. But if he was to talk to them I hope he would begin by validating the contribution that their hard work has made to building a modern economy and out of respect...
What does this year hold for the urban innovation agenda in the UK? Like many others, I completely failed to predict the Brexit vote or the Trump Presidency. But I'm having another go at the crystal ball gazing this year because I still think it's useful to speculate about - and prepare for - the future. So, here are my five predictions for UK cities in 2017.
France's far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen was spotted last week at Trump Tower, in New York. Whether she was there to meet with President-elect Trump or not, which she and Trump's team declined to say, it is important to understand the danger she and her party represent in Europe.
Why are populist politicians popular today? Because they give people a chance to blame someone else for their problems. The others. The foreigners. The aliens. The people who don't belong to OUR country. If populists are such con artists, why do people fall for them?
With the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump mere days away, I believe it's safe to say that the world is in a state of flux. This may be putting it lightly.
To that end, we would point them to one such giant whose birthday we marked this week. Although Martin Luther King, Jr. would not live to see the day when his children would play, as equals, with white children, he spoke prophetic wisdom when he observed, "the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice." The Obamas have done their part in politics. Now it's up to us.
Just a few minutes after the PM's speech yesterday, a triumphant Nigel Farage rightly congratulated himself for his effective takeover of the UK Government. Indeed Theresa May's address, aimed at appeasing the right wing tabloids, sounded like a UKIP conference speech. There can be no doubt it would have received a resounding and prolonged standing ovation there.
