The phrase "hardworking families" drives me nuts. Stop using it!

'"Hardworking families" is an empty slogan. It carries no substance. There are almost a million people who work and claim housing benefit. In fact, only 1 in 8 of all benefit claimants are unemployed. But these are not the hardworking families we're being asked to root for. These are the people incorrectly accused of contributing to a culture of worklessness as recently as 2012. The genuine hardworkers and grafters are often the ones that need that bit of assistance because actual hard work, the sort nobody really wants to do, is low paid.'

Palm oil again - please sign the petition.
Indonesia’s President Widodo took office in 2014 promising to protect forests and respect the rights of indigenous people. Now – only months later – he wants to hand 1.2 million hectares of rainforest and indigenous land in Papua to Big Agriculture. Let’s remind him of his election promise!

A video of a slow loris being tickled has been viewed 1000s of times. It's not what it seems.

Email to my MP
The local Conservative Association ditched my previous MP, Tim Yeo, and selected a new guy, James Cartlidge, before the election. He won, as might have been expected in this blue county. Although I've never voted Tory in my life (and never will), Tim Yeo wa...
