Research of violinists undermines popular idea as average players practise more than best ones
Charlotte GillInteresting that The Guardian published this. Research shows that genetic factors influence how good you are at the violin. In other words, you can practice as much as you want, but there's a natural component that cannot be socially engineered.
Siobhan Prigent, who is based in London, took to Twitter to say she was 'very sorry' for her behaviour at the demonstration in Parliament Square.
Charlotte GillUltimately, we are pack animals, and - even though she's daft - she was hypnotised by the crowd & ideology.
Labour is to blame. They whipped up the hysteria and told their followers to find the heretics, who they called "fascists". Salem all over again.
Attacks on politicians are always wrong, no matter how minor the weapon
Charlotte Gill"It was #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek a few days ago, where many spewed platitudes about the need to be more compassionate. Part of that has to extend to our wider debates - we cannot dehumanise MPs this way"
My piece for @Telegraph on #milkshakegate
They took to social media to slam Irish writer John Boyne's new novel, My Brother's Name is Jessica, for 'misrepresenting' trans people. Some took aim at the book's title as it 'misgenders' its lead.
Charlotte GillInteresting, isn't it. Fiction is becoming non-fiction ("you can't write about this person unless you share their identity and experiences!") and news has become fiction ("Jacob Rees-Mogg is a Nazi!"). Very strange times dictated by a handful of weirdos
Left-wingers must stop their indiscriminate use of the term "Far Right"
Charlotte GillLammy’s inflammatory rhetoric confirms that calling people Far Right, Hitler, Nazis or fascists has become a knee-jerk tactic for supposedly progressive politicians whenever they sense they are losing

Perhaps you have never heard of Mark Meechan, otherwise known as Count Dankula, and if so I can only apologise for changing that. Dimly, though, you may remember him as the Scottish YouTube...
Charlotte GillBanning people like Tommy Robinson is not working. It just gives him martyr status. Not sure when the Left is going to realise this? You have to talk to his followers if you want to get anywhere. You have to talk to anyone whose mind you want to change.
A group of academics from King’s College London has set upon Dr Joanna Williams, the journalist, writer and Head of Education and Culture at Policy Exchange, after she was invited to speak at its W…
Charlotte GillKing’s College London has to ask serious questions about who it employs. If academics cannot handle debates from speakers across the political spectrum, what are they doing at university? My take on censorious campaign against the fabulous @jowilliams293
Create a new document and edit with others at the same time -- from your computer, phone or tablet. Get stuff done with or without an internet connection. Use Docs to edit Word files. Free from Google.
Charlotte GillThe trolling on this is rather fun... (NB. I haven't partaken!) Pity gender studies doesn't teach you how to turn off the Google Docs edit button
Five men have handed themselves in to the police after a video that showed them burning an effigy of the Grenfell Tower went viral. The clip shows them laughing while the cardboard cut-out...
Charlotte GillPeople forget that with freedom comes the risk of offence. That is the price we pay for our liberty, and it’s a lesser evil than living in countries that jail and lash people whose views are said to offend - my article for @thetimes
In one of the craziest examples, the University of Manchester Students' Union has decided to ban clapping and cheering at union events because it is discriminatory and non-inclusive.
Charlotte GillUniversities have become religious cults, which is why students now apply bans on things as harmless as clapping. This social engineering, sold as inclusivity, is used to identify non-believers who must be punished in the same way that the impure were once
The long read: The former editor-in-chief of the Guardian looks back on two decades that changed journalism for ever
Charlotte GillThe Guardian has played such a massive role in breaking trust between the media and public. How? By presenting deranged extreme-left political views as objective and factual. Then calling nice people who like Churchill far-right. Good work lads
Tess Holliday has beaten critics and made the cover of fashion magazine Cosmopolitan - and the result is peak body positivity. The plus-size model, who is often the target of horrible comments online and who subsequently started the...
Charlotte GillI think it's time women's magazines got more interesting. Why are they always about bodies/ sex/ relationships??? While blokes get to discuss Sapiens, Jordan Peterson, philosophy, how to change the world. Female equivalent is introspective and unambitious
