BoJo and the Tiers of Learned Helplessness

They say history is written by the winners. Rubbish. History is written by whoever gets in first. An American president can paint a simple history of his choosing in a series of 140 occasionally coherent characters, and those characters are truth, are history, to an attention span unbefogged by the ensuing noise. Come election time, […]

Talent: Just Say ‘No’!

Had a bit of a turn the other day. A bright-eyed, budding young thespian showed me the contract an agent had asked them to sign. Bloody outrageous.  Really pissed me off. (No – not asking me to read the thing, you prune – the terms cunningly concealed in it!) The contract wanted a sole and […]

Blobby Bobby Bully Boys

As seen on the 183 bus.

All the nice good children oblige. They’re all completely kosher – not a dodgy traveller […]

Tappin the Last Nail into the Coffin of Fairplay

What’s with our politician’s perception of fair play? Why is it easier for America to grab one of our citizens, than it is for us to grab one of theirs? Why is one big society more equal than anothers? Get a grip guys! It’s just not British. You ain’t looking after us. Goodness knows the […]
