As a Muslim, I appreciated and acknowledged the need for Muslim organisations to rightly condemn the actions that took place this week but disagreed with both organisations reaffirming the need to distance Islam's true teachings from the individual who attacked the soldier.
The response of David Cameron, Boris Johnson and community and faith leaders has seemingly shown that this has not worked. The message that they are giving, loud and clear, is that this is a betrayal of both Britain and Islam and we as a community should use it as an opportunity to unite.
Mary Portas has come under fire after her company offered an unpaid internship to the highest bidder via an auction site set up by one of the country's leading private schools.
We cannot stereotype, or blame. This is not purely a race issue, or purely a religious issue. And while the English Defence League have every right to feel angry at the unprecedented, vile attack on one of their citizens, it does not give them the right to promote further hate.
If you put some time aside to really understand matched betting, and get it right, there are a good number of people out there in these forums proving that they have been making the equivalent of £30 an hour, tax free. And apparently they haven't been arrested, so I thought I'd give it a go for myself (with a healthy dose of scepticism).
The problem for Miliband, and indeed anyone else looking to crack down on corporate tax avoidance, is that the world has changed. On this issue, the politicians are chasing the rampant forces of capitalism, and they appear powerless at the foot of the economic tornado.
One day, and maybe one day soon, we are going to have to face up to the mistakes we have made when it comes to the climate. I'm not saying we are facing a 'Day after Tomorrow' style extinction event, but whatever happens it's not going to be good.
Sadly, thousands of the young people we help at The Prince's Trust do not grow up surrounded by positive role models. Many have had difficult childhoods, or grown up in workless households, with no one to turn to for advice about how to apply for a job or do well in an interview. They may look up to successful people they see in the media, but without the right support, they feel that their own dreams are out of reach. At The Prince's Trust, however, we are determined to prove them wrong.
The Leadership Through Sports programme aims to assist young adults to become leaders and ambassadors in their communities by creating life-changing opportunities. It has definitely made a difference to my life.
Student Rights, a two-man group with a history of pressuring British universities to prevent certain individuals that it deems to be 'extremists' - frequently Muslims - from speaking to students on campus, has issued a statement in response to widespread criticism of its activities. It contains several easily refutable arguments.
There's a case that students, who could be the next generation of leading scientists, architects, designers and mathematicians, could be slipping through the net through lack of awareness about visual/spatial thinking and the skills that those with a bias towards such thinking can bring to the table.
Sexism's a big deal because boys like my twin brother don't hate women. It's a big deal because misogyny has become 'just a joke'. It's a big deal because while someone like Dom would never make a joke about lynching a black person, many wouldn't think twice about making a joke about rape.
The hipster level of idiocy has increased ten fold, as apparently educated people go to pathetically predictable lengths to express their "individuality" and general radness, in the irritating form of hipster racism.
When some of the most commendable feminists I know are men, this is a pretty confusing statement to be making. If we isolate roughly half of the population from the movement, what can we hope to achieve?
Like many other girls of my generation, I have long had a penchant for the indie boy. As a 16-year-old I spent many hours lamenting the fact that the bassist of 'insert name of NME's top-tip' was not, and probably never would, my husband.
I would argue that too many businesses are reluctant to take the risk on a young person without any experience. Turned on its head, that small risk could actually be a life-changing opportunity to set a young person on course for a truly bright future. So, I think every business needs to consider whether they are doing enough to support young people in their communities to first gain work experience, and then to move into employment. We cannot expect schools or parents alone to support a young person into work. In my view, businesses are a vital part of the equation.
