  1. Royal Wedding Activist Crackdown

    Charlie Veitch's arrest Charlie Veitch was arrested under suspicion that he may or may not decide to protest the royal wedding on Friday (as well as for being at the UKUncut demo where the police tricked activists in to a kettle). Whether or not we agree with his approach or his message (and please, nobody start whining about middle class anarchists, it says more about chips on people's...

  2. Poll Poll: Vote to change the way we vote

    On the 5th of May, Britain will vote in a referendum to change the way we vote, or not. The "yes" campaign want to change the tried-and-tested first-past-the-post system to the complex and sophisticated Alternative Vote (AV) system. Which way will you be voting?

  6. Consequence as a Learning Experience

    Just something kicking around in my head and I'm not sure exactly how to word it. Do you think that people, particularly with each new generation, are being more and more protected from the consequences of their actions? Intervening factors would be those such as the 'compensation culture', which perhaps encourages responsibility on one hand but removes it with the other. Companies learn...

  8. Feminism has held back working class men

    Link According to the Universities Minister, allowing women to work and go to university has made life harder for working class men, as well as being partly to blame for the divide between the most wealthy and the poor. Thoughts?

  9. NHS Reforms

    Following on from this thread, it was only time before I suppose I need to post something more serious about the proposed NHS Reforms. So I have a few links for you and a few comments but ultimately I have a question at the end.... So let's start with David Cameron slamming "pointless reorganisation" in the NHS We can then look at the Conservative Manifesto 2010 and their comments on...

  10. Why do men shout at women in the street?

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-12771938 Obviously the moral of the story is that it isnt a terrible good idea to hit someones car if you dont want to antagonise them, and i dont mean their resultant actions are justified either. Thing is, dickheads who openly shout at women in the street are I would say more of the exception to the rule. It might happen a lot, but of all the people...

  13. Police Reform Bill Ends Accountability

    Here's the article. I know we have people of all different backgrounds here, so it will be interesting to have debate... I first wanna give my view by saying I have no issues with the police as individuals. In fact, the area in which I live feels safer now we have police presence... However, I have many friends who get involved in nonviolent activism, as do I and I do not feel comfortable...
