Climate change: Sacrificing the future

On the same day the Met Office announced that 2014 is likely to be the hottest year on record, Tory Chancellor George Osborne's budget gave tax cuts for the fossil fuel industry

Them & Us

Seasons' greetings: Christmas, we're told, is a time for giving and for families. And it appears to be Christmas all year for MPs' spouses and relatives who were paid a total £3.7 million from the public purse

Tories' £2bn funding lie: The money is running out - at Medway Foundation Trust in Kent, maybe as early as January.

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt's additional "winter pressures" payments won't even touch the sides. Nor will Chancellor George Osborne's £2 billion nationally - much of it is already in the NHS budget anyway!

£50 billion cuts still to come: Budget statements are about party politics as much as economics. Especially this one: six months before the general election. But this time there have been few 'election sweeteners', because the government’s own strategy of ‘eliminating the deficit’ is failing

The housing crisis is hitting everyone in the face. The mainstream press, politicians and economists all feign concern. Not to mention the real concern of those of us actually affected by it!

Hands off our NHS

The deepening staffing and funding crisis in the National Health Service (NHS) is causing hospital Accident and Emergency departments (A&Es) to be stretched to breaking point

Education: "a hurricane of ill thought initiatives"
