Cath Janes

Freelance journalist and writer and now known as The Kraken

Until she became The Kraken, Cath Janes was a long standing feature writer and columnist for the British broadsheets and magazines. Then, so enraged by the idiocies of the world around her, she created www.thekrakenwakes.org where she forms a black hole of fury so you don’t have to. She writes daily about political, lifestyle, cultural and parenting stupidities and annoyances and gives readers their own platform to vent their fury on the Your Rage page. You can keep track of what’s making her explode today on Twitter @cathjanes.

Why I Lie to My Child

I've been lying through my teeth since the day my five year old daughter exploded into the delivery room. In fact my first lie was at exactly that moment, when she was plonked onto my heaving chest and I made a wild stab at looking like I knew what was going on. I've lied ever since.
