  • The guideline, published in The British Medical Journal, tells midwives not to say things like “good girl” to women in labour, because it is “disrespectful”. In the guideline itself, the authors say the changes are needed in order to “instil a culture of respect” for mothers-to-be. The guideline has since been backed up by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG), with the idea being, that “using the right language could reduce anxiety in women in labour, cutting the rates of complications.”

  • “It doesn’t matter that it’s an image created by an artist, it’s the image of a murderer. And to me it’s really shameful that Ireland would put the image of someone who was a foreigner, went to Cuba to kill… was a failure in everything he did.

  • Lundegård, faced with the breakdown of traditional marriage – because that is what she describes, even though she tries to hide it – caused as much by feminism and the fight of the ‘progressive Left’ as anyone else, in effect calls for the acceptance of Islamic morals to combat the ills her own movement caused. So the fight against Western Patriarchy has brought us a Feminist defence of a system more oppressive to women than Western Patriarchy.

He was appointed as a Security Assistant (ADS) and began his training for police officer.
