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…

Bin men working for Kingston Council have been suspended after… They spilled the rubbish all over the street? They ran over a taxpayer? … a 13-year-old girl claimed they blew kisses and wolf-whistled at her. Ah. And is there any substance to those claims? Are we even allowed to ask, or should we just accept her word, like her father has? The girl’s father said: “At the time of the…

Jessica Valenti in CiF on burkhas…wait, sorry, my mistake, school uniform: In the last few weeks, almost 200 students – almost all of them female – at Tottenville High School in Staten Island, New York have been given detention over dress code violations. *yawns* But what makes an outfit inappropriate? A peek of shoulder? An inch of midriff? Or maybe it’s just being young and female that school administrators find…

And it calls for extra-large bags of popcorn! Are you ready for travellers vs feminists? A traveller cleared of raping a woman outside a nightclub has spoken of his nine-month ‘nightmare’. Of course, unlike all those other men in my archives, this is discrimination, to be sure! The family of the roofer, who lives on the Ewood Caravan Park, said the case should never have got to court at all.…

Oxford Dodged A Bullet Here…

Helen Price, writing in the ‘Guardian’ last year, about turning down Oxford to go to Yale: Cash-starved UK universities cannot compete with the funding opportunities offered by US colleges, whose wealthy alumni throw donations at their alma maters. Yale’s $19.4 billion endowment dwarfs Oxford’s £3.9 billion, meaning that they can pay for everything from summers abroad to huge research grants. Most of all, I noticed the difference in their attitude…

Many African countries are politically freer, more prosperous and with better educated populations than at the height of the notorious “big man” regimes: one-party states and military rulers that followed not long after independence. Great news! Right? Well, not entirely: But some leaders who were once seen as enlightened and enthusiastically embraced by the west as the “new breed”, and countries that claim to have embraced more democratic systems, are…

Residents of Chicago were agonising again on Monday on what ails their city after another weekend of chaotic gun violence… Well, I think the answer’s Democrats. And, to a certain extent, Chicagoans. Mr Emanuel has been battling the state legislature of Illinois to pass stricter gun-control laws. While the city itself has taken steps to restrict gun sales, police say that firearms flow almost unimpeded from dealers in southern Illinois…
