Tim Worstall complains about #feminism "The argument is very simple indeed. We have moved from a society in which women tended not to work into one in which they tend to do so. And obviously, women tend to do the sort of work they are educated to achieve. Add in that people tend to meet their partners through university or work these days and it's quite clear that professionals will tend to marry professionals, blue collar blue collar and so on. We thus end up with a world in which there is a strata of society enjoying two professional incomes per household and others enjoying two white collar incomes, two two blue collar and so on. Although it does rather break down at that last: stay at home housewives are more likely to be in the working classes."

"Students are up in arms this week after a controversial fraternity founded at Yale University in the United States established a chapter at the University of Edinburgh. The chapter is a branch of the Delta Kappa Epsilon (DKE) fraternity, which is currently suspended at Yale for vocally promoting #rapeculture.The Yale chapter was excluded for five years in May 2011, after new members were videoed marching across the New Haven, Connecticut campus chanting "No means yes! Yes means anal!""

"What use was aristocracy in twentieth century Britain? And what, specifically, was the use of a landed aristocracy in a rural, agricultural setting? These questions animate Downton Abbey at the most fundamental level. This week brought them into even sharper relief, as issues of taxes and estate management, which have been simmering in the background all season, finally took center stage."

"The Samaritans charity is nervous that his tale may glamorise Laybourn’s intervention; most suicide attempts are not averted by guardian angels.

But Benjamin says: “I am not trying to romanticise this. I was very fortunate someone came along. The point is, there is always support out there. Having someone able to listen – over the phone, by email, or face-to-face – can make such a difference.”

For his part, Laybourn says he had no option but to act. “I saw him from far away on the bridge; it clicked immediately why he was there. I didn’t think I would reach him first, because a lot of people were going by. No one stopped; hardly anyone looked. It was obvious he needed help.”Both men say they will keep in touch. “We really got on,” says Benjamin. “We’re finally going to have that coffee.”
