Election 2015 #whyvote: Can politicians persuade the young? — Unlike them, my generation got a free education. Back then, revolution was in the air. In the 1970s I was involved in a sit-in at Liverpool University to try to stop it investing in companies in South Africa. I was expelled for my trouble.

Michael Gove: Tories' 'win-win-win' policy on housing — Mr Gove told Jon Snow: "If in 2010 we'd said that we were going to be able to invest an additional £7bn in the NHS, and take a significant number of people out of income tax, and reduce the deficit by a half, then I suspect that both of your eyebrows would have hit the roof."

Who said it: Jon Snow or Hunter S Thompson? — See if you can tell the difference between his account of it and lines from Hunter S Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

IDS: 'I know what it's like to look for work' — The Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith insists that he does know what it's like to look for work. Mr Duncan Smith, whose flagship Universal Credit programme begins its phased roll-out today, told Channel 4 News that he "had been made redundant and had to make people redundant."

Can Syriza live up to the hype? - video — In the cold light of day - the morning after the night before - are Greek voters thinking more soberly about what the future now holds? Jon Snow speaks to people on the streets of Athens to find out.

Charlie Hebdo Shooting Is a Ferociously Shocking Moment — Posted: Even for a hardened news man in a hardened newsroom the mass shooting at the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo is a ferociously shocking moment. We know at least 12 are dead, five are critically wounded and others beside. And those numbers will doubtless change during the day.

If I were queen for the day I would send children into the wilderness — If I were queen, I would send schoolchildren off into the wilds. They need to break out of our cosy world of convenience and instant access to digital everything, and get active. I imagine that it would be tough to fit in more time in the national curriculum for sport, activity and expeditions.

If I were queen for a day I would enforce old-age selfies for children — With all this power, it's a challenge to know where to start. We are constantly reminded, for example, of society's preoccupation with being considered glamorous, accompanied by a belief that age brings us crashing down. Under my rule, everyone under 30 would be required by law to have one of their best selfies turned into an age-enhanced photo, wrinkles and all.

If I were queen for a day, cuddles would be mandatory — This week someone tweeted me about a woman who has started a cuddling business. Coincidentally, I was touring in Portland, Oregon, so we visited Samantha's cuddle shop, where you can book a 60-minute appointment to spoon, have your head patted and engage in prolonged eye-gazing.
