To Brexit or not to Brexit, that is the question…

Jun 22, 2016


Tomorrow, I, along with the rest of the UK will go to the polls to either vote to Remain as part of Europe or Leave and go it ‘alone’ in the EU Referendum. As with the Scottish indyref of 2014, one side tells us one thing whilst the other tells us another without being clear […]

X Marks the Same Tired Old Thing

May 7, 2015


So, after my first attempt at voting failed I tried again after the working day had finished where I had more time on my hands to stand around dithering until it was my turn to put that ‘X‘ on the flimsy piece of paper. As I queued up thoughts tumbled around my head about the […]

Conformity and the Path to Freedom

Mar 21, 2015


Well, it has been a while since I have written anything on here due to ‘normal’ life taking over and towing the line, conforming like everyone else; well mostly everyone else anyway. I have felt like a Cyberman these past few weeks; trapped without my own voice and doing as I am told. Anyone who […]

The following are just a few grumbles of the week to let out of my crowded and mad mind. The Scottish Referendum Yes I know, I did a huge piece on this a few days ago but it is a big thing here in the UK and will change everything no matter which way it […]

Broken Britain?

Sep 9, 2014


Is Britain and the United Kingdom on the Verge of Splitting? Britain. A land of myth and legend, of war and peace, of invaders and settlers. It has the fastest growing language in the world and has spread its influence almost everywhere through culture and language. Famous writers include Shakespeare,Rabbie Burns, and Dylan Thomas, to […]

Why I Hate Football

Jul 6, 2014


So the Football World Cup is in full swing to many people’s delight and others inward groans, mine included. Even with England apparently out people are still interested in it. So why do I hate football then? I don’t use that word lightly either. I mean it with a passion. With an almost vehemence-like attitude […]

St. George, the Dragon and Patriotism

Apr 23, 2014


Saint George‘s Day, a day when England shows its pride in being English and everything England. The day always brings a smile to my face every year at all the so-called patriotism of those people who ‘celebrate’ this day and the irony of it all. The same goes for St Patrick and Ireland as he […]

I’ve not done one of these in a while and there’s been much to rant about in the news over the past few weeks so here’s my jumbled views on what’s been happening in the UK and the world over the past few days and weeks. Unemployment down by 7.2% Here we go again. The […]

Train Fare Rises I got on a train the other day and realised my fare had crept up by 20p. Yes, I know, it isn’t much but it is a price hike all the same, one of many yet to come. Buses have also risen by a similar amount at a time when people can’t […]

All Thatched Out

Apr 12, 2013


Before you dance on the grave of an enemy, know them first inside out and above all; show them respect. Be better than them and rise above what they were and stood for. These words rang in my mind when ex Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher died on Monday 8th April from a stroke. Now I […]
