  1. Ministers back anti-abortion lobby's councilling reforms

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/aug/28/anti-abortion-lobby-reforms Personally it makes me sick. 7-14 days isn't fast considering most women may not find out that they are pregnant until they are 6 weeks, then another to get the courage and information about where to go, and another 2 weeks waiting... thats 9 weeks pregnant... I don't think that the goverment should be talking to...

  3. Scotland's uni funding system faces legal challenge

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-14607122 So what are peoples views and opinions on this matter? I for one think that we need to have either a United Kingdom or a devolved one. Having this partial devolution allows situations like this to happen. It will be interesting to see what the legal outcome of this is.

  4. Is working part-time antifeminist?

    link Its a article in an american-based magazine, thus has that perspective, but I think provides some very valid points on both parts, especially: If possible I would much rather have a smaller house and less material wealth, but be happier and achieve what I want to achieve at my pace. It would allow me to still have a career and have children. It does allow women to achieve a good...

  5. Is BDSM a belief system? Should it be protected in the workplace?

    The Guardian I agree with the judge in this case, no one can comment on or deny your lifestyle but wearing a collar as a nurse is a complicated issue because of the sexual aspect. Would I say the same if I gay woman wanted to wear a 'lesbian' symbol around her neck? I don't know. I'm conflicted.

  6. BBC Radio 5 Live disscusion on self-harming

    I was slightly disapointed with the discussion on radio 5 regarding self-harming. Although the girl who does self harm who was involved in the discussion was brave to talk about her problems; i don't feel it addressed any issues with self-harming other than relating it to 'teenage transition' things. There needs to be a discussion about self-harming that continues through to working age mental...

  7. News of the World

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-14024668 New allegations about phone hacking, this time that it was Milly Dowling's phone and that the NOTW's routine deletion of her messages to make space for new ones led the family and police to believe she was still alive. Whoever was responsible for this is a fucktard, and hopefully a spell in prison will teach them a lesson.

  8. Not in my name - Follow up to riots

    Came across this on another board - http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.192570047474496.51394.143181745746660 Think it will actually have any impact? It's a nice idea, but I'm not sure how it will make any difference.

  9. Only women in swimming pools? Oh, we can't be having that!

    I've recently been looking a lot at what happens around Bristol and the South West, for personal reasons. During my searches, I came across this story... according to (I apologise in advance) the Daily Mail; "Women-only swimming sessions have been scrapped by a council after a man complained they were sexist. The man, who has not been named, complained about not being able to take part in the...

  10. Oh now that's Ironic

    Maybe i'm being a complete idiot, but am i right in thinking Osama was killed a month or so ago? Am i right in thinking he was buried at sea? Am i right in thinking it was very suspicious of how quickly they did this? Now the very people who apparently found Osama have been killed: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-south-asia-14449165 Please point out if i'm just paranoid.

  11. Chris Jeffries/Jo Yeates

    Chris Jeffries the "Mad professor" accused of Jo Yeates' murder has won a victory over the media, along with the Sun and Mirror being fined seperately for contempt of court. Hopefully these sort of consequences for papers that carry out these character assasinations are a sign of things to come. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-14342766 Well done Mr Jeffries.

  12. Bombs in Oslo - The unthinkable happened here as well

    After New York, Madrid and London, Oslo has finally joined the not that glamorous club of being a bomb target. Today 22 of July, about 1530, a bomb went off right in the government district! This will probably end an era of a relatively open security regime around government officials compared to other countries, and it's hard to foresee the long term ramifications of this tragic event. As a...

  14. Is education a right and should it be free?

    Earlier this week, the Open University announced that from 2017, they'll be charging £5k for full-time courses. Some current students are moaning because we don't get that many tutorials (I have 5 for this module this year) and we have to self-study. However, unlike students at brick unis, we don't need to pay for our text books. I see nothing wrong with paying for my education and don't see...

  16. Theresa May, Big Mistake!!!!!

    I never fail to be absolutely gob smacked by the stupidity of some Politicians when they open their mouths when it is obvious what they are about to say will invite trouble. Theresa May, the present Home Secretary has just in my mind done something which should require her Leader, David Cameron to consider another post for her. Yesterday we had senior officers from the Met being...

  17. Keeping a baby's sex secret after birth

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-13581835 Here's an interesting story I found, would love to hear your views on it. Basically, I encourage you to read the story (especially the Toronto Star story- more informative I feel), but the outline is: Couple have a third child. They aren't revealing if it is female or male, so that it can grow up who it wants to be, without any stereotypes...

  18. Prince Charles' income from taxpayers increases by £298,000

    Story from the Guardian Can anyone justify this whilst spending cuts are leading to key health services closing and patients being denied 'expensive' medicine; grants to train teachers are being cut aggressively or abolished; etc.?

Just because this wouldnt have happened if the kid was at school, doesn't mean it is the teachers fault. Could have happened to her anyway on...

  22. Should I leave my Union

    Like many public sector unions my union, Public and Commercial Services (which despite its name is a civil service union) will be going out on Thursday. Despite voting against the strike I'll be out with them, on the belief if you join a club you accept their rules. However, I'm seriously thinking about leaving it after twelve years in that I fundamentally disagree with its approach which I...

    In terms of sheer numbers who is the biggest terrorist nation on Earth? Who has unleashed atom bombs on Japan? Who has ruthlessly used chemical and biological weapons against Vietnam? Who carpet bombed Laos,Cambodia and Iraq? Who distorts Middle Eastern politics for their own ends? Who helped overthrow loads of democratic or vaguely liberal govts in Afica,South America and the Middle East?...

    There's been some interesting follow up articles in the media after the Milly Dowler trial. One example being http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-13905808 , but there are plenty around. Anyone got any thoughts as to whether this is a one off issue with the particular circumstances of this case, or is it a more general issue?

    Guardian news story I'm surprised this hasn't been posted yet. This to me is at least a step in the right direction, it is worth reading the whole thing I have linked to, however there are plenty more news stories about the subject too. I think that for a country which enshrined the words "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" in its declaration of independence, that change such as...
