LSE On Internal Socioeconomic Inequality: Puts Fingers in Ears and Shouts “La La La La”

Read More

The idea that socioeconomic inequality might actually be a bit of a problem at LSE seems to have begun to manifest itself among the student body at the LSE, albeit slowly, belatedly, and with the enthusiasm of a child being told it needs a vaccination for its own good. As students who did not even know the name of a cleaner before this term suddenly take to campaigning in support…

The Best Friend’s Best Friend – A Freshers Phenomenon

Read More

I like to think that I’m a very reasonable person, y’know. I’m a nice gal. But at the moment I’m being faced with a real dilemma, a proper moral test. Its similar to when you meet your new partner’s ex, or your ex’s new partner. Its the best friend’s best friend. To outline this, there seems to be a bit of competition between one’s uni friends and home friends over…

Gwyn Digests: The John Lewis Café, Oxford Street

Read More

It seems to be an unwritten rule for London’s non-London students that when your parents visit, you go to Oxford Street. This is because no matter how much you try and convince yourself you are now a true, suave, luxurious Londoner, whenever your parents come you once again return to the spotty teenage being of your youth. Your parents coming means being reminded of the self you left behind when…

4. Game Theory: It will tear you in half but it will not end you

Read More

by anon. TW: rape This week’s Game Theory will take a slightly different approach to some of the topics that have been covered previously. Whilst what I’m going to talk about didn’t happen to me at university, I know from conversations with my peers that not only does it happen within the confines of LSE campus, but it is horribly commonplace. Please be aware that some people may find the…

Election Night: Cold Hearts, Warm Pints

Read More

It started well. I must admit that it did start well. The screens were blaring, the coffee had been chugged, the power naps were had and the vibes were good. There were hot dogs. Being the inclusive liberals we are, there were even vegetarian hotdogs. This was promising. Tuns was bustling out with over-enthusiastic politics students, clambering over one another in a desperate attempt to wrap their clammy fingers around…

After extensive changes to the LSE Library dedicated to maintaining its status as a world class institution – including reducing the number of functioning Windows computers to make way for flashy Apple branded stuff, moving the Course Collection upstairs so everyone can enjoy making more…

3. Game Theory: The Holiday Romance

Read More

by anon. When I was asked to write a piece for Game Theory I thought back on my own life experience of love and sexuality with mixed emotions. Having been referred to the editor of the blog by a friend on the basis that I had plenty of stories to share, when I actually sat down to isolate a powerful anecdote that was both powerful and uplifting, there was one…

The Transition to Adulthood

Read More

Becoming an ‘adult’ is not a transition which comes naturally for some, and it’s the small things in life which make you realise that you may be one of the sorry many for whom this is the case. It can hit you at any time. In the morning, after pouring too much water into your porridge pot, making a liquid goo out of what should be one of the easiest…

Slagging off the PM W3: “Suck It And Sea” And Other Poor Choices

Read More

Sweets are actually really hard to fuck up as a concept. Pick a flavour thats inoffensive. Pick whether it’s chewy or not. Pick a shape. Easy. What you do not do, I repeat not do, is do something a bit zany if you’re on TV in a competition, Oliver you absolute melt. That is never the right time for experimentation, especially when your background is in sausages, and you think…

Meal Deals: a Safe Disappointment

Read More

How incredible is living in London? The land of opportunity, the golden metropolis, the city of dreams. Just think of all the experiences wrapped up in this bustling ball of busyness. Think of all the people, the cultures, the ideas that surround you! Thinking of all these things perhaps depresses me more than anything else, when I consider the routine of my day: get up later than any disciplined person…
