For Me Not For Him

For me

I write this blog for me and no one else really. Sure I have written a couple of posts which seem to have gained traction with people but, two posts over the many many years I have been bangin away at a keybaord sums up this site to me. That I do it for me. I don’t track users, viewers, posts… Read more →

BaD tImEs AhEaD

The snoopers charter is likely to go ahead, cuts to services are to go ahead, the BBC will have to really negotiate for continued investestment, further sell offs of the post office and now the Guardian are reporting that Channel 4 might be ripe to also be sold off.

House of Cards and May 7th

It’s hard to watch this series of HoC as I get the feeling that certain UK politicians may have Francis Underwood as a moral and political hero. Can you imagine The Camertrons or Milliputs or Cleggigons having the same evil streak as Frank and Claire Underwood. Yes I know at least one of those couples may suit the moral stance… Read more →
