Matt Hancock proving politicians ignore the writing on the wall

Matt Hancock MP, of the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, is demonstrating his street cred by being involved in the Barclays LifeSkills promotional campaign. This was also attended by Fabrice Muamba who famously suffered a cardiac arrest on the football pitch. Unfortunately for Matt Hancock, Tory MP, some of the graffiti he had posed in front of, at the oh so trendy and currently massively hip place to hang about (Southbank skate park), suggested one should “sack Cameron!”.

This is such a delicious and ironic example of the rhetoric being laid out, thoughtlessly, whilst politicians do not even bother to read the true writing on the wall. Even when it is writing that they are deliberately posing in front of.

Laci Green on sexual objectification in society

Through the YouTube comments it’s clear to see that not everyone actually understands this.

“She kind of contradicts herself with the first three suggested videos of hers to the right are about sex.”

“So you hate being looked at? Protip, wear clothes that don’t make you look like a slut.”

But Laci Green has created a great video (below) on sexual objectification in society. She’s not anti-man and not anti-sex, she’s clearly well read, educated and experienced but more importantly she’s anti-sexism hugely popular and makes a very effective argument.

So just watch it all the way to the end, even if you’re considering turning off because of her style of delivery.
