Can she really not see that by reducing women's stories, she is playing a dangerous role in double glazing that glass ceiling she claims the women of her time had already smashed

Ariana Grande Had Nothing To Do With Mac Miller's Death - It's Time To Stop Demonising Women Who Put Themselves First
Grande did not owe it to Miller to save him from something that was far bigger than the both of them, and nor should she ever have been expected to

It has become apparent that the value of students and staff is merely pound signs

There will come a day when America breaks up with her second amendment, but the split will always be messy

We all know that sexism exists and that it neither starts nor ends in the world of dance music. Yet in a scene supposedly based upon values of equality and inclusivity, it seems odd that the world of dance music and DJing should still be such a boys' club.

If you genuinely care about the victims of ISIS then don't just care for the white dead ones. Care for the ones washing up on the shores of Calais, for the ones seeking asylum across Europe and for the ones our government will strike as 'collateral damage'. Don't bullshit with white washed sincerity and empty paragraphs that are little more than a jump on to the bandwagon.

In a country where money can be found to bomb the Middle East, buy a royal baby an £8,000 wendy house, invest in new nuclear technology and cover MP's 'expenses', there ceases to be any logical explanation as to why student grants should be scrapped.

When your village gets flooded everything sort of comes to a stand still. It's all brown and muddy and a ton of crap gets dragged through your streets and into your home, including David Cameron.

The idea that such a notorious feature of our country is ultimately a system based on the principle that some people are born superior to others undermines all our claims of a more 'equal and fairer Britain' at a time when we really do need it most. Kneel or no kneel, we are a democratic nation striving towards equality, so can we please follow Jez's lead and start acting like one?

I'm tired of people confusing Muslims with Islamic extremists either through their own ignorance, laziness or prejudice. I'm tired of people saying we need to get 'them' out of our country, as though the actions of a minority represent the views of so many other innocent people just like you and me.

So whilst I'm living the high life and rolling around in luxury thanks to my pack of tampons, I'll be thinking of Mr Osborne, barely scraping by and reliant on the tax free nature of his exotic meats and private jet maintenance. Oh, and helicopters. Can't forget the essentials!

With his first act as Labour leader being to attend a rally for the refugee crisis, it is clear that Jeremy Corbyn has struck a chord with those among us who dislike the selfish politics Britain has pursued and want something better for our country.

The rhetoric that people are fleeing war torn countries, where their governments want them dead and their life has no value, for reasons as trivial as a better job shows really just how sheltered we are.

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?
