If the English nation really wants to stay in a union with the nation of Scotland, then they can only really do so by finding a way to also live within the European Union. That is a choice for England to make.

Despite narratives of the slow but inevitable 'death of religion' -- and indeed the strident 'death to religion' of new atheists, such as Richard Dawkins -- there have been plenty of students and policy makers wanting to crack the nut of dealing with (and trying to understand) religion.

Slavery? What the Hell Were We Thinking? How the (White) British Should Be Angry (and Shamed) About Our Ancestors
Britain too has its social legacy from the slave trade we instigated and benefited from. We live with our own racism and tensions based on that shameful legacy.

Twenty Years After Disney's Pocahontas: The Tragedy Behind the Fictional Love Story of a Native American Encounter
This week sees the twentieth anniversary of the release of the Disney classic, <em>Pocahontas</em>. The world has changed considerably in those two decades, but the underlying issues and problems with the film remain very contemporary.

Regardless of where we stand in terms of British nationalism, separation, and independence, we all have an interest in the British Isles remaining a peaceful, tolerant, and progressive place

That was over three years ago, and during that time the descent into the mental and physical decline that finished Wolsey has felt very familiar. Indeed, I am just a few years younger than Wolsey was at the time of his removal from office.

I must confess that I am a fan of <em>Downton Abbey</em>. But I am worried about the programme, seriously worried. We should not underestimate what a successful TV show can do. <em>Downton Abbey</em> is, in fact, a form of soft nationalist porn that can probably be blamed for the rise of Ukip.

While Cameron Pleads for Us to Keep It in the Family, Scotland Sings 'I Want to Break Free'... So Who Is the Daddy?
If we want to see our national politics in familial terms, then we should feel quite alright about doing it in a twenty-first century manner. No divorce is painless, but very often it is what the individuals want.

I feel in my bones that perhaps, yes quite maybe, that the time is now right to say The Time is Now, the time for Scotland to take charge of ourselves. A once in a lifetime opportunity for peaceful independence for Scotland should not be missed.

There is now a very distinct possibility that Scotland may vote on 18 September to change this partnership. I am intrigued about what further this country has in store, quite possibly as an independent nation in its own right.

Multicultural Britain 2.0 Is the Best Answer to Ukip: We Need to Learn How to Live at Ease With Our Diversity
There have been many predictions that both the Conservatives and Labour will move to the right in the next year, out of fear of the impact of Ukip's anti-multiculturalism. I am not sure if this is the necessary and 'politically correct' route to ensure electoral success in 2015.

There is something about this time of year. It is both the best of times and the worst of times. For the many people who struggle with depression in the UK, this time of year can be particularly challenging.

Workplace Bullying, Abuse and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: It's True, Your Boss Can Give You PTSD
Thankfully, the issue of bullying, abuse and harassment at work has become firmly acknowledged in many respects in recent years. The psychological harm this can cause to someone at work is recognised, but it is still rare that such harm is understood in terms of PTSD.

'Leftie Multicultural Cr*p' it Was Not - But Did the Opening Ceremony Give Us the Legacy of Diversity That We Need?
The 2012 London Olympic games were born in the melting pot of multiculturalism. As we were reminded on Friday, the tragedy of 7/7 happened on the day after the announcement of the success of the London bid. The London games arrived in 2005 with the London bombings. Thankfully, we have come a long way since then.

The question then becomes, which private colleges can be said to be stable and likely to succeed, and which are not? There is an equivalent, perhaps, in the retail sector.
