The club, and city, he walked into and the ones he leaves behind as his legacy are universes apart
If you like passion-driven content on politics, sport and LGBT+ rights with a few attempts at humour along the way, then I'm your man. I also like cats, a lot.
Gay loneliness is an epidemic and leaving queer kids to work out their lives with no authentic frame of reference is a disservice, and one we have to change

Pacifism is a wonderful ideal but in these circumstances it is merely a pipe dream

Thank you for the music, Frank, and for making me feel normal

The truth of the matter is, gay parents are an asset to society and nothing else

Amanda Barrie And Wayne Sleep Ought To Be Ashamed Of Themselves For Defending Ann Widdecombe's Homophobic History
Widdecombe’s career has been a persistent, unrelenting act of hostility against an oppressed community

There is next to no argument for further public control of rail travel will result in better pricing and higher quality service

Britain’s persistence with centralised government has led us into this enervating political quagmire

What is clear however is that Spain is disunited and what its constitution has to say on the Catalonia issue is not fit for purpose. It is time both Rajoy, or better yet a new Prime Minister who won't assault his own people, and Puigdemont come around the table and resolve their differences in a genuinely democratic and diplomatic way - for the sake of Catalonia and the rest of Spain.

When it comes to the fight between liberals, social democrats and conservatives, politics is more a battle of ideas than it is morals. Few people in politics are truly reprehensible, nearly all of us are seeking to make things better - we are each other's ideological opponents not enemies. We must critically engage and learn from one another, partisanship will tear us apart - it's time to relieve it from office.

Whilst there is a heap of evidence to suggest that NIT would ensure a basic standard of living for all people, it would also drastically streamline the gargantuan complexities of the UK's tax system and the costly administration that accompanies it.

Frankly, the national campaign and more pertinently, Tim Farron's leadership has failed to restore the party to its former position. Of course, following the decimation in 2015, few would have thought a Lib Dem revival would be a quick and easy process but just two years later, the two large parties left the door wide open for us - and Farron failed to lead us through it.

Corbyn earned £20,000 for his four appearances on Press TV, and claims to have spent that money on his constituency office. He didn't donate it to a human rights charity, or help fund an LGBT+ equality campaign, he gleefully accepted multiple job offers from a murderous state and used that money to further his own career.

As manifestos begin to take precedence over personalities in the snap election campaign, the Liberal Democrats are failing to be heard over the noise of resurgent democratic socialism in Labour and traditional interventionism by the Tories. Whilst a referendum on the final Brexit deal is the party's main line of attack going in to 8 June, here are 8 other reasons to lend your vote to the amber party this summer...

Simply put, the Liberal Democrats do not exist to act as an external pressure group for the Labour Party. Whilst they may be marginally preferred to the traditional enemy in the Conservatives, there are plenty within the Lib Dems, myself included, who find both equally unpalatable.

Tim Farron's personal views may be understandably troubling to some, but the spurious links to the Liberal Democrats being an unsafe choice for LGBT+ voters is farcical. For as long as history can remember, the Liberal party of the United Kingdom has been the one that has led on LGBT+ issues.

Violent ideology knows not one skin tone, not one religion and not one nation. We will overcome this evil bit by bit, with each everyday errand and ordinary activity that passes. We will overcome this evil - and we will do it without 'useful' idiots like Katie Hopkins.

This is without doubt a bitter end to the most wonderful story this modest city has ever seen. Leicester's charming Roman conqueror has fallen, but this is our club and our fairytale - so, Jose Mourinho, Gary Lineker, Hozier and whoever else who thinks we're now the bad guys - save your crocodile tears and your national funeral for somebody else.
