After catching up with a friend who is still a student last week, I realised that it was around this time last year that people started to inquire what I was going to do after I graduated and whether I had any plans career-wise. With the...

What do the Boat Race and the Grand National have in common? Nope, it’s not the possibility of a protestor turning up at any given opportunity, nor the impressive achievements of finely-tuned, elite athletes. It is actually the fact both are excruciatingly painful snoozefests, which have garnered...

I’ve always liked to believe the weather doesn’t affect me. Why would it? I was born in December, raised in Manchester, prefer city breaks to beach holidays and did a year’s training in the Arctic tundra in order to become an SAS operative. Alright, some of the...

When is a journalist not a journalist? When he or she allows news content to be dictated by Google searches of course. Not the best punchline I admit and if you’re still waiting for the pay-off, you’re going to be waiting an awful long time. But in...

While knocking back my morning protein shake (new year, new obsessive compulsive health regime) and scouring the web, I came across this piece on PR Week. A new survey revealed 70 per cent of consumers questioned would avoid buying products if they did not like the parent...

Is anyone actually interested in the Leveson Inquiry? At this stage, I’m pretty certain the only people actually concerned with the minutiae of this tiresome parade are the journos themselves – and then only because they’re tasked by unimaginative editors with cataloguing every moment Hugh Grant scratched...
