Arjan Hehenkamp (General Director of Médecins Sans Frontières) pleads for open borders: Migration is a global problem, and refugee and migrant policies are failing. The 1951 Refugee Convention and other national and international migration policies established to provide safe haven and protection are spectacularly insufficient. The proof of this failure comes when we hear the same stories of fear, misery and violence the world over, from Morocco to Myanmar to…

London is not alone in lacking gender parity in cycling. Sustainable transport consultant Alix Stredwick quotes 2008 research by the Department for Transport showing that UK-wide, women make 27% of cycle journeys, just ahead of the US at 25%, but below Canada at 30% – and in a different league entirely to Germany at 49%, and Denmark and the Netherlands, where women cyclists outnumber men at around 55%. And this…

Hypocrisy At ‘The Guardian’..? Well, I Never!

Marina Hyde on how awful we are to footballers: … in many quarters, outrage ensues. If it’s not Grealish, it’s Jack Wilshere having a fag in a pool in Vegas and I imagine it’ll be only days before Raheem Sterling lets himself, the headmaster and the whole school down. They’re “the type” aren’t they? The Victorian division between the deserving and the undeserving poor has been updated to give us…

Well, maybe it should be, Ethel: Ethel Quayle, project leader and senior lecturer in clinical psychology at the University of Edinburgh, said the group’s findings have been turned into practical advice. “It is not about condoning the activity, rather it is about providing more practical advice about being able to talk about this and manage issues when they come along,” she said. “It is interesting that the majority of young…

Maybe It’s Not The Human Rights Act We Need To Ditch…

…maybe it’s the morons like Mr Justice Collins who adjudicate on it: A terror suspect last night won a human rights case to have his tag removed – because he thinks MI5 has put a bomb inside it. A judge said the dangerous preacher of hate has mental health problems, and wearing the electronic monitoring device was making him ‘delusional’. He ruled this amounted to a breach of Article 3…

Priyamvada Gopal on the Texas Islamist attack: … are all victims of this contemptible violence automatically courageous? Well, yes. Yes, they are, if they know full well that they might be provoking violence from the unhinged, not to mention the inevitable lukewarm sympathy they then get from soi-disant free speech ‘supporters’ like yourself. Are Draw the Prophet contests – organised in this instance by the virulent anti-Islamic campaigner Pamela Geller…

At What Point Do The HSE Step In..?

I mean, if a fairground carnival ride had claimed 13 victims like some macabre Stephen King horror novel, they’d surely have shut it down. Why is it different when it’s a mental facility? Dr Rachel Daly also confirmed to the court that, at the time of his release, she was not consulted on the decision taken by an unnamed “member of the treating team”. Unnamed, eh..? I wonder why. An…

Labour council election candidate Quesir Mahmood has been arrested and bailed ‘on suspicion of electoral fraud and integrity issues’. Maybe it’s me, maybe it always used to go on, but never made the papers, but I can remember smiling and nodding to the occasional bobby stood outside the polling station and never once thinking ‘Gosh, I’m glad he’s there, who knows what could be going on inside?’… A police spokeswoman…

I’m on my period today. It’s day four so I’m barely bleeding, but I’m still wearing a sanitary pad. On day two – usually my heaviest bleeding day – I had to use four sanitary pads. When I went to the gym I also used a tampon as I was worried about leaking in my gym shorts. Still, I’ve only had to take one codeine tablet this month, plus a…

Hey, How’d You Feel About That Western Freedom Of Speech Now?

Mr Chaudhry, of Waltham Forest, said Muslims were betraying true Islam by adopting Western concepts of freedom of speech, adding: “The ideal of freedom of speech doesn’t exist in reality. But there seems to be an absolute freedom to insult Muslims. “The people being held out as Islamic personalities with an Islamic response are not giving a correct Islamic response. You [Muslims] have to accept their [Westerners’] freedom to insult…

It started like this: 25-year-old New Yorker Beth Breslaw was chatting to a friend about her observation that men were less likely than women to make way for other people on crowded pavements. Oh, for…! Breslaw decided that she was going to test out her friend’s theory. No longer was she going to act like a polite, decent human being who occasionally moved out of people’s way, dammit! No, she…

Teachers should not be friends with their pupils and must avoid connecting with them online, according to new, official advice issued on Monday. But, no! Not for the reasons you might think at first: . It follows research which showed more than one in five teachers had reported having derogatory comments posted about them – from parents and children. Should this really be considered ‘cyber bullying’? Are people only to…

What is..? Well, according to Baroness Kidron, it’s that eeeeeeevil Internet and its effect on the poor helpless kiddiewinks. At iRights’ heart are five principles: that under-18s should be able to take down any content they have posted on the internet; that they should have a right to know who is holding or profiting from their information; that they should be able to explore the internet safely; that there should…

…well, in Brighton & Hove anyway: Any bruise discovered on a baby less than six months old will be treated as potentially suspicious, a children’s safety body has ruled. The decision comes as a report by the Brighton and Hove Local Children’s Board showed complaints about possible abuse had soared in the past four years. So, you can expect them to soar even higher, can’t you? And incredible as it…
