EVERYTHING MARKED WITH: UK Globalisation And Other Light Topics September 15th, 2014 by

Over the last year or two I’ve become overly fond of the odd occasion where my work takes me to some of the smaller towns or villages. The places where it seems that time has slightly stood still, and if you stand and look in certain spots you could be looking at exactly the same scenery […]

‘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 […]

I have generally always been for the UK being in the EU. It’s not something that I often thought about but generally being in a unity with other countries on the continent felt like a good thing to me – united we stand and all that. Not only that but somewhat naively I have always […]

The weather outside is horrific. I can say that from my very safe observational post of our front room where I’ve spent most of today watching people clutching their hoods and being blown down the street. One of the few joys of this ‘end of days’ style weather is that no one is able to […]

I’m not a fan of new year’s resolutions but I’ve scolded myself on many occasion in 2013 for having blog type thoughts in my head and not confined them to the internet. There are far too many thoughts on the internet already and if anything, I repeatedly complain that we are now in a world […]

I should be on the student march today. I’ve spent weeks telling students at gigs to go on it, I’ve tweeted about it, FB’d about it and blogged about it, totally and utterly support it and so, all in all, I should be there. Except I’m not. I’m at home, in my pyjamas, feeling full […]
