Unionist

Nationalism won’t solve the problems of the past. The union was blamed then, but now dangerously remains a scapegoat.

Cooperation through unionism is the best way to move towards a fairer, more progressive world. So whilst one can “understand” nationalism, and the reasons for it per se, it’s really not the best way to go forwards now.

Just as it’d be foolish to leave the EU rather than reform it and make it work better for everyone involved, it’d be a shame to kill off the UK when it has so much potential to enhance quality of life if it works, united, for the majority of people rather than the few who currently control it and benefit from its extraordinary wealth.

So clever. So true.

Cassetteboy’s latest political mashup is a masterpiece, if I do say so myself…

Remember this?

Au revoir, monsieur Clarkson.

I hope you don’t mind that it’s in French, but French Top Gear seems to be about the only Top Gear we’re going to get now.

Underrepresentation excuses all?

News just in: you can do something to look like dicks even when you’re supposed to be the oppressed minority.

Seriously, some people have done something to be anti-UKIP that I think has made them significantly less pleasant.
That takes some doing.

Revealing BBC Calculator

So, the BBC has a calculator to tell me how much money I’m going to save (or not) as a result of the budget.

It’s really rather telling.

You will be £0 better off.
BBC Budget Calculator.

It’s odd, because it’d almost suggest that a lot of Conservative economic policies don’t do a lot to help the average (especially young) person. Which is ridiculous, of course.

A note to the Tories.

Having seen the Tories’ latest election material…uhhh…might I say a few things?

Conservative Educational Policies

“It’ll probably provide exactly the sort of training we’re all going to need so that we can go and work in Mr. Cameron’s mansion as a servant…and, like, wipe his bum or something. We urchins don’t learn that until we’re sixteen, anyway.”

Education has, without doubt, been one of the most controversial areas for the current government, arguably being one of the most crucial areas in a country’s long-term development (and one of the areas I feel impacts most upon me) and there hasn’t really been a much more unpopular Education Secretary than Michael Gove for a very long period of time.

So, what are the Conservative Party’s educational policies for this time round?

Election 2015: Vote for Policies

Vote for Policies

Voting for Policies. Seems pretty simple, huh?

And yet, how many of you have had delivered (if not bothered reading) some material from the Conservative party urging you to vote for them simply to keep Ed Miliband out? They do that because they know Cameron is more popular, but they’re not the only ones playing that game.

Powerful video on mental health.

Over the past few months, I’ve been involved in a mental health campaign run by my local UK Youth Parliament (now Deputy) representative, Kieran Mulvaney.

On Friday evening, we officially launched our video, made with the Fixers charity at a rather moving event at my school.

Have a watch of the video, please:
