Ed Miliband MP, Leader of the Labour Party, in a speech at the Royal Institute of British Architects, said:

Now I am here today to launch our summer campaign.

We are in the middle of the last summer before the next general election.

By this time next year, that election will have been fought.

But another of the interviewees left me feeling concerned. Darren was young, good-looking and bright; I asked him how often he thought the women he paid enjoyed the sex. “I don’t want them to get any pleasure,” he told me. “I am paying for it and it is her job to give me pleasure. If she enjoys it I would feel cheated.” I asked if he felt prostitutes were different to other women. “The fact that they’re prepared to do that job where others won’t, even when they’re skint, means there’s some capability inside them that permits them to do it and not be disgusted,” he said. He seemed full of a festering, potentially explosive misogyny.

When asked what would end ­prostitution, one interviewee laughed and said, “Kill all the girls.” Paul told me that it would take “all the men to be locked up”. But most of them told the researchers that they would be ­easily deterred if the current laws were implemented. Fines, public ­exposure, employers being informed, being issued with an Asbo or the risk of a criminal record would stop most of the men from continuing to pay for sex. Discovering the women were ­trafficked, pimped or otherwise coerced would appear not to be so ­effective. Almost half said they ­believed that most women in prostitution are victims of pimps (“the pimp does the ­psychological raping of the woman,” explained one). But they still continued to visit them.

This is what we mean when we say men hate women. You don’t even have to dig very deeply. They will tell you themselves.

it is very important that people know their sister signs, because the compatibility between two tends to get disregarded when in actuality you are the yin to their yang— their other half! it is likely that you may have had a friend/friends or a crush/crushes that were your sister sign (or the sister sign of your moon sign).

"He is regarded to be one of the greatest leaders Britain has ever had, although sadly only by himself."

"In 1992 Major decided that it was time to institute a policy that was very close to his heart. After much discussion with the police and his Minister for Transport (Lord Ian Transport, the 3rd Baron von Transport) he unveiled the John Major United Kingdom National Royal Cones Bureau Hotline (almost-immediately shortened to Cones Hotline at the insistence of pretty much everyone). This era-defining institution allowed Britons, no matter where they were in the Realm, be it Basingstoke or Dundee, to telephone a number and report traffic cones that were in the road for no discernible reason. The country was transformed overnight as citizens who had been at their wits’ end about some cones lining the side of the M8 now had somewhere to turn.”
