BBC and Equality This week, the BBC was forced to reveal the salaries it pays to its highest earners (£150,000 p.a. and above).  Embarrassingly, the pay varied even within the same presenting roles, and the gender gap was especially noticeable.  In such an unequal society, between rich and poor, the sums (which often exceeded the […]

Donald Trump – Relations and Relationships I haven’t written about U.S. President Donald Trump since December 2015, so I thought  I would catch up with him, after two weeks of writing about Wimbledon.
