Being Labelled a Cheerleader for Islamic Zealots Is No Joke - Response


Yesterday Lauren Booth posted a piece on the Huffington Post site in response to the tabloids who ran stories about her being “a sinister-sounding woman who takes time off from fund raising for ‘terrorist' families’ only to pander to her rarefied hobby as a ‘cheerleader for Islamic Zealots’.”

Booth is an English broadcaster, journalist and activist, currently working as a freelance writer and media consultant. Her response is entitled ‘Being Labelled a Cheerleader for Islamic Zealots Is No Joke’.

Fantastic first radio newsday for undergrads


Have a listen to our first year undergrad's newsday!! Putting together 30 mins of live radio is no easy task, and even more so when you've only been studying how to do it for less than 6 months. 

Nevertheless, our almost 40 strong class took on the mammoth task brilliantly and delivered two impressive shows full of national, local and international stories. If this is how they start, we cannot wait to see what they'll be up to in a couple of years time.
