Presenter sparked row with Twitter claim that she was ‘ushered out of the door’ of Islamic centre in south London
Channel 4 News presenter Cathy Newman has apologised for “any misunderstanding” over her ill-fated visit to a mosque in south London.
Newman hit the headlines after she tweeted on Sunday saying that she was “ushered out of” the South London Islamic Centre in Streatham.
Well I just visited Streatham mosque for #VisitMyMosque day and was surprised to find myself ushered out of the door...
I was respectfully dressed, head covering and no shoes but a man ushered me back onto the street. I said I was there for #VisitMyMosque mf
But it made no difference
This is going to be a long day, so I will have to start at one minute past midnight and take up the whole 24 hours. A lot of coffee will be drunk.
First of all, anyone who shouts something rude at a woman playing sport will have to explain their conduct in front of all her friends – and then do that activity themselves, with the woman and her mates “offering advice”.
Tristram Hunt, the shadow education secretary, has said he meant no offence to nuns after appearing to question their ability to teach.
The Labour frontbencher faced criticism from Tories and Catholics after engaging in an argument on BBC1’s Question Time on Thursday about the role of teachers from a religious order in faith schools.
On BBC QT I was trying to make a generalised point about the use of unqualified teachers in schools. I obviously meant no offence to nuns.

In a piece of flash fiction titled “Negative Emotions,” Lydia Davis makes an eloquent case for negativity. In the story, a teacher inspired by Buddhist doctrine urges his colleagues to alleviate their negative feelings by identifying “emotion as an emotion” and practicing “mindful breathing” and other feel-good platitudes. His audience is skeptical. “Far from being troubled by their negative emotions,” Davis writes, the teacher’s peers “liked having negative emotions, particularly about him and his message.” A mere 282 words, “Negative Emotions” is deliciously defiant, a powerful defense of anger and distaste. At a time when new age philosophers and trendy TED-talkers proselytize from every corner of the Internet, insisting on emotional stability in even the most destabilizing circumstances, there’s something to be said for a healthy dose of doom and gloom. Nothing grates like gratuitous cheerfulness. There is, after all, so much to hate.
The bus down from Glasgow was a thing of legend. The city dissolved in a haze of orange lamps and the person beside you would toast the new life with a can of Carlsberg. It was a long night’s journey into day, and London’s King’s Cross, the place of arrival, was a different world then, with cobbled streets below and Victorian gasometers above, in the days before Eurostar and the revived St Pancras Hotel and the walkways and the Guardian. I remember a little cafe that was housed beneath the arches, a place with 1950s wallpaper, dirty windows and a matriarch in a plaid tabard who offered mugs of tea from a gushing samovar. “New, are you?” she asked. And over hard English rolls and bacon – I’d never known hard rolls before – she said the thing to do if you wanted to explore was to check your bag in at the cloakroom of the British Museum. I said that was nice of her and she gave me another tea and drew me a map of Bloomsbury.
A poet is a writer with a scrupulous spirit, that’s what books had taught me, so I came to London with a volume of Scottish verse and an essay I’d written about Wallace Stevens. In the museum I found a room filled with glass cabinets; they contained manuscript pages by well-known writers, and I couldn’t get over them, those wonderboxes, one of them showing Keats’s Lamia and another the inkings of Philip Larkin. I’ll only speak about dead poets here, and not because death becomes a poet, but because the greatness of newer poets is a magical course to me, and I won’t throw out the bairns with the memorial bathwater. I am in love with poetry and nothing is better than a fresh volume by a poet you admire. Ian Hamilton, that ace writer and recidivist encourager and denouncer of poets, could talk about Matthew Arnold as if the saint of high culture was about to walk through the doors of the Gay Hussar. He was present to him. And that is how I’ve always felt about Burns, or Yeats, or Tennyson, or Frank O’Hara. If great poetry helps you to live your life, then what is it exactly that a person can gain from the memorable speech of ghosts?
Self under self, a pile of selves I stand
Threaded on time, and with metaphysic hand
Lift the farm like a lid and see
Farm within farm, and in the centre, me.
Lives of football men remind us,
We can dive and kick and slug,
And departing leave behind us,
Hoof prints on another’s mug.
Yet they were of a different kind
The names that stilled your childish play
They have gone about the world like wind
But little time had they to pray,
For whom the hangman’s rope was spun,
And what, God help us, could they save:
Romantic Ireland’s dead and gone,
It’s with O’Leary in the grave.
On the grass when I arrive,
Filling the stillness with life,
But ready to scare off
At the very first wrong move.
In the ivy when I leave.
It’s you, blackbird, I love.
There is a package on the table in front of Jacqueline Wilson that is almost bigger than the author herself. It is a bundle of the emails that have arrived since the last time she was here at her publisher’s office – a fraction of the 200 or so letters a week sent in by fans around the world. When she first started getting published, 43 years ago, she used to write lengthy, often illustrated replies to every one. “But I just can’t now. I try to reply to anyone who’s in really dire straits, or ill, or has written something quirky and fantastic and I just think: ‘Oh, you lovely thing!’ After that, it’s pot luck, and I just hope like anything that they’re not too disappointed.”
Wilson’s 101st book, The Butterfly Club, is just about to be published. What would her childhood hero Harper Lee, who this week announced she was publishing her second book 55 years after To Kill a Mockingbird, make of her? “I don’t know,” says Wilson, “But I can say that I would rather have written one To Kill a Mockingbird than all 101 of my books.”

‘David had uploaded a sexual video and photo of us on to two porn websites and it had been picked up by hundreds of other sites. Explicit images of me were all over the internet’
I met David online just before Valentine’s Day last year. Friends had warned me of the dangers of internet dating, but I felt confident that I would be OK. After all, as I told them, I’m a good person and I’m online. David was charming and funny, and before long we were a couple. At first, the relationship was great. I loved and trusted him, and taking nude photographs and videos was an enjoyable part of our lovemaking. But David soon revealed another side of his personality – he was very insecure, narcissistic and had a violent temper. “Obey me like dog,” he would say. I am an intelligent woman in my 40s, but he was so charismatic that I put up with it. Psychological abuse became physical – I had to go to hospital after he beat me.
Our relationship was very turbulent and I broke up with him several times, only for him to guilt-trip me into taking him back; such was his power over me. Finally, after six months, I broke up with him for good when he tried to strangle me after I confronted him about being unfaithful. I took out a restraining order against him to prevent him coming anywhere near me again.
