MINISTER FOR LONELINESS

ABOUT JO COX

Resultado de imagen
Less than a year after the launch of the Jo Cox Commission on Loneliness, the Prime Minister committed to  “bring an end to the acceptance of loneliness in our society”
Jo Cox’s life was marked by her compassion and by her passion. She worked tirelessly for a fairer, kinder and more tolerant world. And she believed passionately that even the greatest challenges could be overcome.

She was motivated by both her own experience of loneliness at university, and conversations with her constituents. She came into Parliament and set up the Commission with the driving belief that “young or old, loneliness does not discriminate”.
She was a campaigner and an active member of her community. She was a colleague, a friend, a wife, a daughter and a sister. Above all, she was a mother to two beautiful children. Read more.


 “young or old, loneliness doesn't discriminate...it is something many of us could easily help with. Looking in on a neighbour, visiting an elderly relative or making that call or visit we've been promising to a friend we haven't seen in a long time.”

MANAGING RELATIONSHIPS A CHRISTMAS


Resultado de imagen de LOVE ACTUALLY

 DISCUSSION

"Love Actually" is a belly-flop into the sea of romantic comedy. It contains about a dozen couples who are in love; that's an approximate figure because some of them fall out of love and others double up or change partners. There's also one hopeful soloist who believes that if he flies to Milwaukee and walks into a bar he'll find a friendly Wisconsin girl who thinks his British accent is so cute she'll want to sleep with him. This turns out to be true.
