Gender backlash and the Spending Review

by In Wales Sat Oct 23rd, 2010 at 05:09:56 AM EST

I'm still too angry about the ConDem Comprehensive Spending Review to be overly coherent at the moment.  If anyone saw clips of George Osborne being cheered on by his coalition friends as he announced cut after cut with a smug look on his face, you'll understand.  Parliament looked like a hall full of screeching monkeys.

Cuts need to be made but to make them so severe, so unfair and to relish them like this is sickening to see.  Labour were accused of being an ideologically driven Goverment, but good grief, that really pales into comparison here.

Biomedical Research and deafness

by In Wales Wed Oct 6th, 2010 at 06:02:06 AM EST

I attended a meeting yesterday where a presentation was given on the latest research to cure deafness. This is a topic that is obviously very hard for me to be objective about but I immediately have two problems with the way this is framed;
first, it is misleading - all types of deafness can't be 'cured' and secondly, it presents deafness as something that is undesirable, 'diseased' and needing rid of.

On the (Mili)band wagon

by In Wales Sat Sep 4th, 2010 at 10:37:17 AM EST

On Monday 30th August I found myself on a coach to London out of curiosity more than anything else, with the destination being the Movement for Change London Assembly, the key event in David Miliband's campaign timetable.

And very interesting it was too.

Halleluja!

The 50th Anniversary

I'm a Trustee and active volunteer staff member for a charity called Treasure Trove which I've diaried before.  This year we celebrated our 50th Anniversary which also looks very likely to be our last, for a number of reasons.

On the campaign trail

by In Wales Sat Apr 17th, 2010 at 06:24:08 PM EST

Here we are in the middle of the General Election campaign.  Amid discussion of policies, campaign materials and party leaders I've been fairly quiet.  Largely because I've been busy and also because I've been submerged in the campaign itself.  

It is an interesting insight on the campaign, the policies and the people. One that I will attempt to share with you.
