    As a UK citizen, I’m ashamed by the UKIP victories – not only did they get the most UK seats in the European Parliament, but they also did very well in elections for local councils, despite doing no local campaigning.

I worry sometimes that people seeking to downplay our causes use the infighting as a weapon against us, as well as it taking energy from our causes. Part of my job is youth work, primarily working with 12-15 [...]

    Thanks for the review – after reading this yesterday I had a look at my local cinema, to find just 1 showing at 6pm last night (so I went, by myself & was the only person there) I especially loved how it avoided many stereotypes – dad’s new young girlfriend isn’t a bitch, or trying [...]
