Paul Rogers: Slaughter on smartphone: the atrocity intended to heighten our fears over terrorist threat
TERRORISM is commonly defined as an action or threat intended to induce fear in a much larger group than the intended victim or victims. In that sense, the appalling attack near Woolwich Barracks was intended to do just that, and was aided by the impact of the new social media, especially smartphones.
THE fashionable vilification of successful businesses shows no sign of diminishing – in fact if anything it is getting worse.
IT is 530 years since Richard III claimed the throne during the summer of 1483, yet the infamous Yorkist king remains as controversial in death as in life. When, three years ago, I began working on my latest book, Bosworth: The Birth of the Tudors, I could hardly envisage the miraculous discovery of the king’s bones under a car park in Leicester.
I’ve never really been much of a fan of birds. In fact, they hardly ever cross my mind unless I’ve been mugged for my chips by a seagull or had to remove a hen from the back of the sofa because “someone” left the back door open.2 comments
Dear Alex, I have an unnerving habit of putting things off even though I know that its what I should be doing to make my life better! It seems madness but I know I’m doing it and I do it quite often.
THIS country has, of course, seen many terrorist attacks with far greater loss of life. But there can have been few more shocking or sickening incidents of violence than a young man being hunted down and hacked to death in broad daylight on a London street simply in order to make a political point.
THE concentration on exam results, on whether grades are rising or falling and on which schools are topping the league tables can too often obscure a more disturbing education statistic: the inability of schools, education authorities or Ministers to make any lasting impression on truancy figures.
IN some respects, the election of Britain’s first crime commissioners could not have been more timely – their presence at the helm of each constabulary has helped to reassure of the public after the police’s integrity was undermined by a succession of misconduct scandals.
IT is encouraging that Richard Benyon, the Environment Minister, has recognised the financial contribution that Britain’s national parks – including the Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors and Peak District – make to the economy.
THE positive impact of the 70,000 new jobs due to be created in the Leeds City Region by 2020 will be diluted if students, even those at the outset of their secondary education, do not have the requisite skills.
