Sadiq Khan has made a positive contribution to fighting terror in London. Zac Goldsmith's vile mayoral campaign, which looked to associate Khan with Islamic extremists, didn't fool anyone. And those spreading lies and hate by vilifying London's Mayor for their religion will not succeed in their goal of dividing the capital and the country.
Yes, I know I shouldn't really be saying that but it's just when people die, I laugh now and it's not even funny. I know it's not funny, it's just that life feels like a joke.
We have the power to change positions, mind-sets, industries, rules and a way of life. We have the ability to merge something so simple into something beautiful. So, if you ever feel that you need to explain who you are and why you are doing something, we are women, andthat is enough.
George almost committed suicide that day. After two years of battling with mental illness, he wanted to die - because he thought that being bisexual meant something was wrong with him.
Living with M.E has taught me an important lesson about agency and self-ownership. In an age where tangible goals seem increasingly elusive, it's no surprise so-called 'millennials' are focussing their energy on achieving balance, purpose and freedom in life and work.
In nearly three decades of campaigning, I have learned that those who mount campaigns against injustice can win against overwhelming odds, justice is a right and not a privilege but as Rector I will not be able to do justice to this position unless I have the support of the students. I am determined to be a strong voice, fighting their corner but want the students and staff by my side.
The ability to speak our mind is a much cherished freedom of the society in which we live, but one that I believe recent events at Lincoln University Union have suggested is sadly under threat. The recent brief suspension of Lincoln's Conservative Society simply for sharing an image from a study that suggested Lincoln University ranked as "very intolerant" on freedom of speech, appears to be illustrative of an endemic problem throughout many campuses.
It is obvious that Tony Blair is using the approach of Brexit as an opportunity to attempt to force his way back into the political world. He has shown himself to be an opportunist, so this isn't too surprising. What is shocking, however, is the fact that the main news broadcasters are giving him so many interviews.
At 17, I thought I was just a healthy average teenager, I ate well, exercised a lot and generally took care of my body. I was never ill other than catching a cold. But that changed when my skin started to become very itchy, and I developed rashes that wouldn't go away.
Questioning trans women's validity as women is not simply a question of privilege. It is an attempt to restrict womanhood and to define it in cis terms. To ensure that cis experiences become the default woman's experience.
Rather than simply shouting about it and slandering the opponent, campaign against the view/nomination, debate against it, and most importantly vote against it. That's the only way to prove that the university as a whole doesn't want a hostile, flippant provocateur at the helm.
Yes, the countdown to exams has truly begun. With the promise of the Easter break hovering on the horizon, you may be feeling quite relaxed knowing you will soon have dedicated time to study; or you may have underlying concerns about how you are going to fit in all that needs to be done before the big event.
Over the years, I've had to deal with a worrying amount of misconceptions and misunderstanding regarding my mental health; it seems people have a generalised idea about mental illness which results in stigma and negative stereotyping. I've chosen to address some myths that I've had to defend over the years...
Imagine feeling scared. Imagine feeling alone. Imagine feeling completely worn out by a medical condition which is doing it's very best to kill you. Imagine feeling guilty for visiting the doctors, but doing your best to go to all of your appointments nevertheless. Imagine being passed from one professional to another - none of them wanting to take responsibility for your care.
