Before you continue, I should warn you that this blog is nothing more than a moan. Not a sexy one either, or a nicely spooky one that comes from your cupboard when no one’s in and means you go to sleep later than you planned. No, no, this is a bog standard argh-something-else-that-drives-me-up-the-wall-more-than-Spider-Man’s-car-which-in-itself-annoyed-me-as-it-was-created-solely-for-merchandise-purposes moan. The […]

A new ‘satirical’ television show has been announced today. I won’t mention its name and I haven’t seen it yet, so can’t really judge it as such. However in the selling points for said show, it states that it will feature ‘biting satire’ such as ‘David Cameron and Nick Clegg battling it out on the […]

I’ve been trying to write some material on the horrible Paris attack last week since it happened. As with all my material I didn’t want to write something that vilifies the victims of the attack or to blame anyone other than the killers or to demonise satire or to not say this or definitely say that. […]

Yesterday, while sitting in a Pret in central London – because that’s the kind of life I have – I read the news story about the alleged Prince Andrew scandal. After munching on my kale crisps – because that’s the kind of life I have – I came up with this: I didn't think Prince […]

I re-watched Chris Morris & Charlie Brooker’s Nathan Barley last night, in it’s entirety. It is the limbo period between Christmas and New Year’s after all and really, what else is there to do? The usual Christmas batch of television has been even more dire than usual with endless repeats or at least repeats of […]

‘There’s nothing happening in the world today’ I find myself often muttering to L. She will often rifle through Twitter and respond with ‘No. It all seems rather dull today.’ This isn’t an admittance that I can single handedly halt the turning of the Earth just using incredible psychic thoughts. Nor is it the moment […]

This is less a blog post, and more and advert for assistance. I just thought it was better to put it here rather than in the window of my local shop where less people would see it and chances are super evil Chris Moyles* man from the garage or the man who’s always at the […]

I find it hugely depressing that Labour aren’t top of the public opinion polls by a long stretch in the UK at the moment. I’m not surprised at all. I have no hope in them, or any intention of voting for them at all. But it’s still saddening, because they should be. It’s exactly one year […]

I have discovered a secret super power. It’s not a particularly good one, or one that’s useful to anyone else but me, but it’s definitely something close to making me an Avenger. Probably. Everytime I walk to our nearest bus stop, the bus I need is either there, or just arriving. It has happened to […]

According to much of the press reports on the situation in the Ukraine, World War Three is looming. Or another Cold War, depending on what you read. Russia is refusing to back out of Crimea and as a result breaking tons of UN sanctions and the Budapest Memorandum of Security Assurances. As I type this, […]
