Wake up, England: Boris Johnsons charm is just the arrogance of those born to rule | Suzanne Moore

A friend is going out with a guy who humiliates her, spends her money, has affairs and is abusive. Yet she feels lost and is somehow dependent and when he promises he will make it all OK somehow, that he will change, and the future will be wonderful, she decides to give it another whirl. Anyway, she says, what else is there? Half-broken, she has lost the ability to even imagine a better life for herself. It is no use, my anger on her behalf …

#1 Reason Hypnosis For Weight Loss FAILS…(And What To Do Instead) Hi, my name’s Sarah. I’m a 42 year old stay at home mom living in Kentucky. Recently, my friend told me about this weird little fat loss method she read about in a woman’s magazine. When she told me what it was, I was very skeptical.
