What's driving these changes is the Conservative's social philosophy infused with ideals of individual responsibility and ending the 'evils of dependency'.

Cities can be seen as an environmental time bomb. They currently consume up to 80% of global material and energy supplies and produce around 75% of carbon emissions.

Children's health should be a priority in planning for and responding to disasters, including planned time to assess and remediate hazards.

Not only should we question what the Conservative vision of a hard-working society looks like in reality, we should also remember who is evangelising it and why. When it comes to work and family backgrounds the Coalition cabinet could not be more unrepresentative of the run-of-the-mill British family.
It is finally time to rid Chicago of this costly-to-the-taxpayer and incredibly destructive product.
We've exceeded the destruction of nature that humanity can wreak without causing horrific, irreparable loss and suffering. We've disrupted nature's regenerative powers.
