If you're after someone with a bit more integrity - if you don't want Britain to end up turning into a feckless Trump proxy state - you've got to put your money where your mouth is, get out there on polling day and stand up for what's right. Cast your ballot for a party who's willing to stand against brazen tyranny, and send Theresa May a message she won't soon forget.

Theresa May has been handed a golden opportunity to repair Britain's increasingly toxic environmental policy and demonstrate true leadership in the face of severe, impending ecological challenges. There's still time to get back on track and show the world that we actually mean business. But if she's even remotely interested in protecting the world around her, May had better hurry up and act - because the clock has already started ticking.

This Brexit vote has got to be a wakeup call for any and all Republicans who are even remotely interested in their own wellbeing. It shouldn't matter how much you claim to despise Hillary Clinton, Democrats, women's rights or universal background checks. Donald Trump's continued demonstrations of economic selfishness and fiscal ineptitude prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he cannot be trusted with America's welfare.

Now, if that's a price you're willing to pay in order to try and slash net migration, just you go ahead and vote to leave the EU on June 23. But if you're gainfully employed by a small business, you might want to think twice.

Against everyone's better judgement, Brexiteers have now been forced to abandon all reason and double down on their hopes that Britain's festering xenophobia will ultimately be enough to defeat economic literacy come June. Politicians like Boris Johnson and Michael Gove have consequently placed every last shred of credibility on the line by attempting to disprove their own fundamental beliefs on the supposed economic benefits of immigration. That's a pretty risky bet...

Cold callers aren't only annoying - they also tend to rip customers off big time. They're bad for PR, bad for business and bad for the industry as a whole. With any luck, regulators will bear that in mind before unleashing big energy companies back onto our streets to spoil your dinner.

Politicians should know better than to presume that flogging a dead horse will get the UK's oil industry back up-and-running. If anything, by attempting to jumpstart production with public funds, we'll simply perpetuate industrial recession. That's not good business and it's not good politics. Then again, it does make for a half-decent soundbite.

Every politician has a make-or-break moment - that pivotal time in which they must either step up to the plate and prove their worth, or slink back into the partisan sludge from whence they came. Well, this has been Mr Hunt's turn to step up to the plate - and he's completely whiffed it.

We've got to face facts: we're living in a brave new world of free-flowing information, and age restrictions or movie-style ratings simply won't keep our children away from inappropriate materials. If anything, these hollow forms of censorship only delay serious parental conversations that are just plain inevitable.

This is 2015. Most people are going to pay by card. That makes the miniscule processing fee attached to those transactions a regular overhead expense that must be budgeted for. And so if your franchise can't facilitate this seemingly unaffordable act of modern sorcery without punishing underpaid staff for demonstrating great service, perhaps you shouldn't be running a business at all.

It seems like things can't get any worse. But trust me: if the Labour Party doesn't elect someone capable of giving them direction and demonstrating some form of ideological resolve, things are going to get a hell of a lot worse. Who knows? By the next general election, Labour could even go the way of the Liberal Democrats.

From the outside looking in, you would never guess that Iran is a rich country. It's got sky-high unemployment, an atrocious poverty rate and no real economic growth to speak of. But in a matter of months, this cantankerous theocracy is going to turn the global energy market on its head.

When are we going to stop shooting ourselves in the foot? If we want to bolster domestic business and really get our economy moving, higher education is the last thing we should be taking a swing at. We're perpetuating our own lack of knowledge, and it's going to cost us in the long run.

At this point, most voters should take it for granted that campaign promises are nothing but rubbish. Politicians can't get elected without offering the world on a silver platter, and so party manifestos tend to be embarrassingly vague and optimistic in nature. Most of them fade into oblivion immediately after election night. Well, David Cameron isn't prepared to let that happen this time around.

Have you heard about TTIP yet? It's been in the works for a couple years now, but it doesn't make the headlines very often. But now that this silly election is over and done with, chances are we're going to start hearing a lot more about it.

This is it. After what's felt like an eternity, the general election is finally getting underway. Everyone who plans on voting has been registered, party manifestos have been launched and would-be politicians are producing an endless stream of tough-talking soundbites.

Scotland has always been a relatively multicultural place. Almost a fifth of central belt residents were born outside of the UK, and this foreign-born population is getting smarter and more highly skilled every year.

The events unfolding in Yemen over the next few days very well may impact the stability of the Middle East for generations to come. And no matter how this plays out, there are going to be a whole lot of losers.

This war on American Apparel has got to stop - least of all because it's just giving the company exactly what it wants. But the ASA has got to realise that it's a complete waste of time to point a finger at one company in particular without pointing a finger at the industry as a whole.
