Should Bahar Mustafa keep her job?


It is said that there is a special place in hell for women that do not support other women.

I, unfortunately, appear to be one of them in this situation.

'Spy' World Premier Opportunity - Message from Tom Acres


Through the entertainment news/review website I run ( I've been given media passes for the world premiere of Spy in Leicester Square tomorrow evening.  It's access for two people to the red carpet pens to interview the cast (Melissa McCarthy, Jude Law, Jason Statham, among others) and crew, film the event, etc.  You also get to see the movie.  Unfortunately with our final postgrad exam falling on Thursday morning, I can't take as much time out of the day as is required.

China's Bipolar Bilateralism


The multibillion dollar deals signed during Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s first visit to China as leader last week are expected to bring wealth and prosperity to both parties. But they also stand testament to more than just financially lucrative friendship: they illustrate China’s ongoing emphasis on bilateralism in the nation’s struggle against US influence in Asia.

As votes are counted; voices are left unheard


After the Tories somehow managed to form a majority in the 2015 general election, many were left angered and demanding a proportional representation voting system after seeing their parties unjustly represented in the first past the post system. This view is slightly hypocritical as just four years prior, the people of the United Kingdom voted against an alternative voting system in the 2011 referendum, a opportunity that many political analysts saw towards full proportional representation.

The Black vote matters too


“There’s no point for me to vote because it won’t make a difference.”

“My vote won’t matter!”

“Voting is a waste of time because which whether way I vote it comes between Labour and Conservative.”

These were some of the answers I received when I asked some of my friends about the general election a week beforehand.

It’s an aca-review. Sort of.


Having earned more at the box office in its first week than its prequel made in its entire theatrical run, I had huge hopes for Pitch Perfect 2, which hit UK screens last Friday. And I was definitely not dis-aca-ppointed.

Jason Moore does not reprise his directorial role but it is instead, picked up by none other than Elizabeth Banks – yes, that’s Gail of ICCA commentators John and Gail – while Kay Cannon and Mickey Rapkin write another winning script.

The struggle of the Polish Democracy


2015 is the year of election for Britons as well as the Polish. The debates in both countries have overwhelmed the newspapers, radio programs and websites, and not a day goes by without a new shocking statement by a politician reaching the media light.

The essence of this year’s general election here in England is that people have a choice of who to vote for; and their choice is of the highest importance. With the EU membership as the main focus in the debate, the British citizen can take a stance for or against, and vote accordingly.

Airbnb - all are welcome, sort of


You have all heard the name by now, I imagine. Marketing itself as a hybrid of couch surfing and real property letting, Airbnb has taken the travel world by storm in recent months.

After booking two very cheap weekend trips to Berlin and Budapest for my girlfriend and I recently the prevailing thought after my extensive property searching were all positive. But then I began to think harder...
