Alcoholism Is Ugly

Alcoholism is ugly. And though only the drinker feels the physical impact of the drinking - the pain of the self-inflicted injuries - the toxicity of our lifestyle tarnishes every single person we come into contact with.

Not Just an Ugly Face

Why, then, is it so impossible for an ugly female protagonist to exist in our culture? Why must 14-year-old Hermione Granger have a Cinderella moment at the Yule Ball, when she has so many other qualities to recommend her?

The Beautiful Gift In The Ugly Box

My face softened as I smiled and rather liked the smile looking back at me then a light switch popped in my head. A light was turned on and has stayed there ever since. The light gave me my new friends hope, quickly followed by peace (of mind)...the 'beautiful gift in the ugly box' as I call this episode of my life gave me my purpose.

Time to Confront Wind Turbine "Ugliness"

I think that wind turbines are ugly. At the same time, I think wind power is the only renewable energy source that can be reliably used to reach the UK's carbon reduction goals. I'm not alone in saying turbines have a "visual impact." British landscape painters were up in arms against the wind turbines that were covering the UK's hills in 2006.

Am I Ugly?

Over my 21 years on this planet, I have had 15 operations, a brain tumour, a punctured intestine, a brain cyst, a punctured intestine and a life-long condition called hydrocephalus and none of that hurt as much as the words people used to describe me this week.

Brutti Ma Buoni: Crisp Walnut Biscuits

Deliciously more-ish, crisp on the outside and chewy soft in the middle. Just how I like them. They're a variation on the theme of amaretti, but with a slightly richer, denser flavour that comes from the finely ground walnut flour.

Refugees, Terrorists and the Ugly Truthiness

It is, incredibly, exactly 10 years since the word 'truthiness' first appeared, courtesy of Stephen Colbert. I know this because I didn't just feel it to be true - I looked it up... And 10 years later, the ugly truthiness is back.

Print, Prejudice and the Struggle for Sites: The Ugly Face of Localism

Last month, <em>Inside Housing</em> reported that only 101 of the 597 Traveller pitches allocated government funding in England since 2012 have managed to secure planning permission. Without permission, it is unlikely any of the remainder will go ahead; another broken promise in the ongoing struggle for adequate Traveller accommodation in the UK.

Solving Our Housing Crisis - The Only Way Is Up?

The recent tragedy of Grenfell Tower will understandably concern many people thinking of high-rise living and is evidence of how we must ensure that new build developments have the latest fire and safety equipment built in by design. We can look to the wider world to cities where these kind of developments are common place to ensure that any move in this direction in the UK uses cutting edge technology and is future-proofed as far as possible.

England Needs More Security in Our Housing Market, Not Less - The Government Should Re-think Its Approach to Council Tenancies

We must learn from the past. The last generation of mass council house building included some ugly monolithic estates that did not meet people's aspirations, as well as some better designs. The next generation of low-rent homes need to look like any home you'd see on an ordinary street, and work for the same people who live on those streets.
