Well it is truly remarkable. Not so much the result of the election, which is surprising enough. But, rather, the fact that following the “Brexit election”, one in which traditional party loyalties seem to have been stretched to breaking point by the leave-remain divide, we emerge not knowing what kind of Brexit the prime minister intends to deliver. In the short term, there is now no doubt that he will be able to “get Brexit done” in the sense of taking the UK out of the EU by the end of January. And no, that does not mean that Brexit will, in fact, be done (on which more in a minute) in a practical sense. But it may – may – be possible for the government to give the impression that it is in a politically persuasive way. Departure itself will be a seismic event. Any government worth its salt will be able to trumpet that achievement as fulfilling the will of the British people. Thereafter, to maintain the illusion of completion, the task will be … [Read more...] about What will Boris Johnson’s majority mean for Brexit?

NAVRATRI marks one of the most important times of the year in the Hindu calendar and is celebrated through colours, music, dance and food. Here's everything you need to know about the celebration, including what each of the nine colours associated with the nine days means. What is Navratri? Navratri, literally "nine nights", is a multi-day Hindu celebration in honour of the goddess Durga. Theoretically, Navratri occurs two to four times a year - one for each season - however, it is the Sharada Navratri near the autumn equinox (Sept/Oct) that is the most widely celebrated. For the majority of Indian Hindus, the story behind the nine-day celebration surrounds the victory of goddess Durga over the buffalo demon Mahishasura, who represents egotism. In other parts of India, Hindus mark the occasion as a celebration of the victory of god Rama over the demon king Ravana.In all cases, the theme of Navratri is a battle between good and evil, with the forces of good triumphing in the end. … [Read more...] about When does Navratri 2018 start and end and what are the nine colours associated with it?

It wasn't immediately obvious that the 36 women wearing bright orange mini-dresses at Monday's World Cup game between Denmark and Holland were advertising a brewery, though the worldwide publicity the company gained when every one of them was ejected by stewards has ensured that a huge audience has become aware of the brand. "What seems to have happened is that there was a clear ambush marketing activity by a Dutch brewery company," said Fifa spokesman Nicolas Maingot, failing to understand the concept of stifling the oxygen of publicity. Bavaria, the beer company behind this stunt, is no stranger to "ambush marketing", the term used to describe the piggybacking of a brand on to an event for which they are not official sponsors. At the last World Cup, it persuaded a thousand Dutch fans to turn up wearing orange lederhosen. In that case, they weren't asked to leave, but they were asked to take the trousers off (it isn't recorded whether the company believed a thousand football fans in … [Read more...] about Does ‘ambush marketing’ work?
In the late 70s a group of lesbians in Leeds, known as revolutionary feminists (RFs), made a controversial move that resonated loudly for me and many other women. They began calling for all feminists to embrace lesbianism. Appealing to their heterosexual sisters to get rid of men "from your beds and your heads", they started a debate, which reached its height in 1981 with the publication of an infamous booklet, Love Your Enemy? The Debate Between Heterosexual Feminism and Political Lesbianism (LYE). In this, the RFs wrote that, "all feminists can and should be lesbians. Our definition of a political lesbian is a woman-identified woman who does not fuck men. It does not mean compulsory sexual activity with women." The message of LYE immediately provoked a strong and often negative reaction. While some radical feminists agreed with the group's arguments, many went wild at being told they were "counter-revolutionaries", undermining the fight for women's liberation by sleeping with men. … [Read more...] about My sexual revolution
