    Belfast is hoping to join the cycling revolution. Following the lead of London and Dublin and other major cities such as Madrid, Paris, and Milan, 30 docking stations for public hire bikes are being installed across Belfast City Centre. But will people here get behind the 'Belfast Bikes' scheme or will it lose momentum after a matter of months with the bikes left to rust? One of the docking stations has already been vandalised, so not everyone appears keen. But maybe you're already part of the cycling revolution and think this is long overdue?

    Nine out of 10 family doctors say their workload is harming their ability to care for their patients. Fifteen thousand GPs were polled by the British Medical Association and overwhelmingly they are opposed to the idea that their practices should be open seven days a week.

  • Racism

    Last night, a group of men, one believed to be carrying an axe, smashed the windows of two homes in the Tigers Bay area of north Belfast in what the police say was a racist hate crime. In recent years, race crimes have been in the news a LOT -- not just in Belfast but across Northern Ireland. Racism is a problem everywhere, of course, and it's not limited to any particular social or economic class, ethnic group, or region. But a spate of attacks in Loyalist areas forces the question: has loyalism got a particular problem with racism?

  • Should the legal drinking age rise to 21?

    We've reported many times about the cost of binge-drinking in the NHS. And about cheap booze and a culture of binge drinking among young people that's producing a new generation problem-drinkers. Now health chiefs in Scotland have entered the public debate with a radical proposal to tackle all of that: they want to raise the age at which it's legal to drink to 21, which has been the law in the United States since 1984. Would it work in practice across the United Kingdom? Or is it a knee-jerk reaction to the problem?
