At the two most recent sessions of Prime Minister’s Questions, Jeremy Corbyn has unnerved Theresa May with short, punchy questions about her non-existent policy on Brexit, which she cannot answer. The luxury of opposition means you don’t face the daily dilemmas of government, can ruthlessly expose bad decisions – and, in May’s case, her inability to take them when her cabinet and MPs are so divided. However, Corbyn now has a big, difficult decision of his own to make – whether to support the UK staying in the EU single market after Brexit. The House of Lords has voted for it, by calling for the UK to join the European Economic Area (EEA).

It’s the New Year. We have all stayed up to watch the fireworks, hug our loved ones and go to bed with a new drive of resolutions yet to be fulfilled.

Is January logically the worst month in all our lives, or is this strain we feel on our lives just self-inflicted useless pressure? With January comes the term ‘new year, new me’. Whether it is improving your health, breaking a habit or taking up a new hobby, many people often put under pressure to create new aims, in order to feel that they have ‘grown’ since the last year and can make changes to fulfil life. Every January, Google searches for gym membership’s spike in a rush to lose the pounds you may have gained over the Christmas period. Gyms sign on an amount of contracts way above their capacity; … [Read more...] about Is january the worst month of the year?
