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 […]

The Original Starman

I awoke this morning in a daze and hazily looked at a text from an eccentric friend I have and was shocked to what he had sent me. It said that David Bowie had ‘gone’ and my mind spun at that. What did he mean? Was I in deep sleep and dreaming? Was I still […]
