Aspects for the week beginning 17 September 2017

Aung San Suu Kyi Revisited I have written about Aung San Suu Kyi before, particularly at the time of her release from house arrest and visit to the U.K.  Her current standing is very different:  there is a worldwide clamour for her to denounce the actions of the military in her native Myanmar (formerly Burma), […]

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. There is a great deal of speculation about his psychiatric diagnosis, his possible impeachment, and the effects of the coming 21st August […]

Grenfell Tower – Emotional Responses It has been an intense few weeks in the U.K. and we are recovering from the Manchester bombing, closely followed by the London Bridge terror attack, then an extraordinary election, and now this week the horrifying spectre of the Grenfell Tower, black against the London skyline.  There has been so […]

London Bridge Terrorism Attack It is another heavy hearted day for the U.K. and our capital London.  At 10.08 pm last night, a white van drove over London Bridge, killing and maiming pedestrians.  Then three men from the van made their way to nearby Borough Market, and wove their way in and out of coffee […]

U.K. General Election 2017 (Part 2)

“At 21.59 and 59 seconds on 7 May 2015, anything seemed possible.  Outside of opening exam results, or waiting on news from a doctor, there aren’t too many moments in life where your whole future hangs on what you’re about to see or hear… I thought there was a chance I’d be delivering Britain’s next […]

UK General Election 2017 “Not that she wanted to be seen as a prime minister who didn’t keep her word.  The problem was the opposition.  They were doing the wrong thing by opposing her.  Never mind that they weren’t being very effective, the problem was that they existed at all.”  ~ John Crace, The Guardian […]
