Kate Leaver vs Rupert Meyers – who’s right?

Kate Leaver is a journalist who states she met another journalist, Rupert Myers – who until this week wrote for GQ, amongst other publications. I’ll add at this point, that this post contains strong language, but it reflects what has been said online. She tweeted on Thursday that she went out with him for a […]

Bomb time is boom-time for clickbait journalism

Bombs and terrorism are increasingly becoming a fact of life since Tony Blair held hands with George W Bush in Iraq, before heading into Afganistan, and so on. Thankfully, no-one was killed in the latest incident, in which a bomb failed to go off properly at the Parsons Green tube station in London, but my […]

YM52 UVY – How I was nearly murdered on the M60

YM52 UVY. Yes, I’m talking to you… not that you care, you ignorant get! I just about avoided getting murdered by a Irizar coach (and I’ll tweet them with the link to this, too) belting along the M60 between J3 & J7 in heavy rain around 7.10am this morning – like Dennis Hopper’s rigged it […]

Tesco ditch carrier bags and ruin everyone’s lives

“Tesco! Tesco! Where The Best Go!” once went a song by an ex-employee (below), but while I frequent there for my main food shopping every few weeks (I have a huge USA fridge freezer), heading to Aldi and Lidl in the meantime for my weekly fruit and veg, if there’s one thing I rely upon, […]

Last night’s London terrorist attacks

Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the London terrorist attacks last night. So far, seven people have died and 48 others have injured. Let’s hope there’s no more loss of life. It was a ghastly tragedy, feeling like Grand Theft Auto in real life, in 3 places at once. It set me thinking that […]

Last night’s Manchester Arena attack

My thoughts are with the friends and family of those who were killed in the Manchester Arena attack, as Ariana Grande’s concert came to an end, as well as all those who have been affected. Cowardly terrorists never break the resolve of a city’s people. We’re always told to “remain vigilant” but somehow these individuals […]

Alien Covenant Superticket – Odeon’s Superhype?

Alien Covenant Superticket – it sounds like a great idea! But is it? Get to your local Odeon for next Wednesday, April 26th, and it looks like they’re showing 261 minutes of Alien-related goodness. The 2012 Prometheus movie, followed by… around 15 minutes of Alien Covenant. On the night, that is. You will get to […]

PC Keith Palmer – a tragedy – yes, but…

PC Keith Palmer is the cop who was murdered by Khalid Masood in the Westminster Attack on March 22nd, after he drove into several people at speed on Westminster Bridge. It’s been said he “laid down his life” when he didn’t at all – he was a victim who was stabbed by a mad man, […]

Why did the elephant wear a Fitbit? Because it can!

I know the news is dumbing down more and more, but today took it to new levels. It started off well, though, as I caught some of the BBC World News programme just before 6am where we were told about Donald Trump’s latest faux-pas – his Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, didn’t tell anyone about his […]

The NHS – Why we shouldn’t let the Tories ruin it #SaveOurNHS

Four weeks ago I changed my acid reflux tablets to a stronger type, going back for a follow-up today, I’ve stuck with them long term as they are better, but one thing I forgot to mention last time, and which I did today, is that I have a persistent cough, like a smoker’s cough but […]
