Is there a war on masculinity?

Gillettes latest advert has caused controversy among the public with some people viewing the advert as an 'attack on masculinity'.

The advert shows a series of males performing actions deemed as 'toxic', being told to stop by other 'modern' male figures.

Piers Morgan has been very vocal about his anger towards how men are depicted in the advert, calling it a 'war on man'.

Nigel Farage’s scathing attack on May ahead of no-confidence vote

Key Brexiteer Nigel Farage has hit out at Theresa May’s leadership, following her historic defeat which saw her Brexit deal voted down 432-202 in the Commons last night.

Mr Farage told Good Morning Britain: “Brexit is not the problem, this Prime Minister is, she needs to go.”

“If the Prime Minister had any sense of honour she would resign this morning having led us to this debacle but of course she won’t.”

Mr Farage said a new leader would be able to go back to the European Union and apply much-needed pressure on them to negotiate better terms.

D-Day for PM's Brexit deal as she faces 'meaningful vote' defeat

After two and half years of negotiating and fighting for her Brexit deal, Theresa May will face the biggest test of her leadership to date.

Tonight, MPs will cast their vote in the House of Commons, which will determine whether Parliament backs or rejects her Brexit deal. The results of this vote could end her tenure as Prime Minister by the end of the week.

May is expected to be defeated tonight, despite delivering a powerful speech yesterday in which she implored MPs to vote for her withdrawal agreement.

It’s estimated she’s garnered the support of around 200 MPs to vote for her deal, however, Tory rebels are estimated to have more than 400 votes on their side - this includes those from the Labour party.

Tory whip resigns ahead of crucial 'meaningful vote'

Government whip Gareth Johnson has quit the government to oppose Theresa May's Brexit deal, ahead of Tuesday's crucial 'meaningful vote'.

Mr Johnson, who backed Leave in the 2016 referendum, wrote in his resignation letter to May: "This agreement prevents us taking back control and instead could leave us perpetually constrained by the European Union."

He said it was now clear that "no significant change" would be made to the agreement, and he had therefore decided "to place my loyalty to my country above my loyalty to the Government".

"We need to rediscover our confidence and belief in our country's ability to stand tall in the world without the European Union overseeing and managing our future."

Avalanche warning over the alps

Across the Alps there has been a heavy amount of snow over the past few days - enough to see the avalanche warning rise to five out of five.

In the last week we've had a month's worth of snow - in fact, more snow has fallen so far than all of last years ski season.

Closer to home, we'll have largely dry weather with some patches of rain towards the end of the weekend. Mild, but windy conditions.

Should we be stockpiling for Brexit?

With United Kingdom's exit from the European Union only 77 days away, the threat of food shortages has many beginning their stockpiling missions in order to ensure they have enough perishables to get through should the worst happen.

Some of the UK's biggest companies, such as Jaguar, Marks and Spencer and Tescos have begun stockpiling to reduce the risk of shortages. Whilst Jaguar has stockpiled car parts to keep them running for a few extra days, Marks and Spencers and Tesco have been collecting tinned food to be able to supply non-perishable products.

The UK imports over half of their fresh food and over 90 per cent of their fruit and vegetables. It is believed to be highly likely the cost of fruit and vegetables will increase in the aftermath of Brexit. With the leave deadline becoming ever closer, many have been worried about the impact on imports across the border.

Deal hunter Tom Church has claimed that he had already begun stockpiling items such as rice and pasta in case of a hold up at the border, however, Brexit supporter India Willoughby has argued it's simply fear-mongering, and the UK will operate business as usual after March 29th.

Is it okay to play-fight with your child?

The post on MumsNet has gone viral after a mother wrote for advice on her father’s play-fights with her son.

“My son is two and my father always plays rough with him, flinging him about onto the sofa, tickling (past the point where my son clearly can't handle it and can barely breathe), holding him upside down and he holds him by his wrists and allows him to climb up his body,” she wrote.

“I feel so powerless and " don't know how to handle this. my dad goes funny if I question anything he does and I have to really tread on eggshells with him.

“My son is starting to think I'm horrible because I'm always ruining their ‘fun’.”

It's sparked debate on whether parents should be play-fighting with their children.

Behavioural specialist Lorrine Marer says too much rough-and-tumble with kids could lead to normalising that sort of behaviour, which they could take to the playground.

However, Al Ferguson from The Dad’s Network argues play-fighting with his kids helps strengthen their bond, and and it’s important to childhood development.
