Immigrants don't strain resources, come here for benefits, or think we're a soft touch. Yes, they speak English, and yes - there's enough space.
While we break for summer and while decisions makers don their decision-making hats, we need to do what we can, when we can, to make change wherever we can. It's time to show our leaders exactly why the world desperately needs a global solution big enough to solve the big climate problem. And that's where you come in.
Labour are up a creek without a paddle, following yet another General Election defeat. As the party faces internal turmoil, they host a fascinating leadership debate that will see the party go one of two ways. Yes, two, not four.
It'd be easier to pretend that I'm okay and to stay quiet until things are better but then I'm not sure how that's helpful for anyone because speaking out about mental illness needs to be a true picture, it can't just be telling people about the good days.
What we need to remember is that the House of Lords is far bigger than Lord Sewell, and that's precisely why calls to abolish it based purely on Sewell's actions - without actually considering what this entails - must be resisted.
Nobody should ever have to feel singled out in life. That's the message I'm trying to get across. The response has been amazing. I've received messages from other young transgender teens saying that my video has inspired them to stand up to abuse and believe in themselves. I'm glad I've got a few Beliebers.
The Labour Party has an amazing record on championing women's rights, from the Equal Pay Act to the Abortion Act, yet at this election, we failed women. We can paint as many busses pink as we like, but if we elect yet another leader who does not appeal to women who are becoming increasingly alienated, we will lose their support for the foreseeable future.
It's one small step for the high street, one giant leap for body image! (Well... Sort of!) After I posted a photo of a Topshop mannequin - which went viral - in October of last year, Topshop have never been more aware of the power of social media. This week, Facebook users have united and Topshop have finally backed down!
Those who do not really suffer from a mental health issue should always be mindful that our emotions are just that, our emotions. Not an opportunity to exploit the rising awareness and progress towards a world where mental health is taken seriously, each and every time.
The current set-up goes easiest on those at the extremes - those from the lowest or highest income backgrounds while, across the board, there's increasingly disparity. Removing Grants raises as many questions as it answers, but is more in tune with daily student hardship than anything else on offer.
Having shot themselves in the foot by cutting funding across the board for essential support and educational services, the clock is ticking before the damage will become permanent for the government and for the children who weren't empowered by invaluable information that could've empowered them.
If we're going to tackle a problem as complex and institutionalised as lad culture we need time and resources to build a strong framework against it... It's incredible to see students and staff members so engaged with the issues and ideas shared on our pilot project so far, but this is just one of many possible actions.
I've sat down to write this a thousand times. At least in my head I have. For the past few months I have been struggling with, for want of a better expression, writer's block. I have been drowning in doubt and question why I am even bothering whenever I open a word document. This has happened for both creative writing and blog posts.
So whilst you do not need a gap yaah, a grand in the bank or a rich relative in every corner of the globe to travel the world, you do need the guts and drive to take your chance. Perhaps the question is not why young people should travel, but rather, why not?
You may have seen the utter panic expressed by the Labour Party in recent days at the rate of registered supporter sign-ups...
At the very least, there is a significant proportion of US doctors who use these guidelines in everyday practice. Although the evidence so far has supported the widespread use of statins to reduce CVDs, I would only re-emphasise the importance of caution in the US and elsewhere: statins eligibility is not a closed case just yet and it may take some time before we fully understand how statins can be best prescribed.
