Budget 2017 - Housing Affordability:
The 2017 budget has been released and one of the big talking points is the measures included to try to help people afford their first home. It a problem a lot of people have been talking about, so we'll explain how the price of a home has changed over the years and what can be done about it.

Model Laws:
In France, laws have just been introduced that make it illegal to hire unhealthily thin models. Also, ads featuring photo-shopped images there must now be clearly labelled. We take a look at what effect these changes might have and ask you if you think they would be valuable here.
