(0) Comments | Posted 18 December 2015 | (13:54)

José Mourinho has been dismissed as Chelsea manager a mere seven months after lifting the Premiership trophy with his triumphant team at Stamford Bridge. And it's a good thing. A very good thing indeed.

Over the last 24 hours, I have listened to a lot of sports journalists, pundits...

Why Jeremy Corbyn Would Be Good for Labour but Bad for Labour But Will Change Things for the Better But Make Things Much Worse

(1) Comments | Posted 19 August 2015 | (12:26)

You may have heard a lot of views about Jeremy Corbyn over the last few months, most of them vehemently against or in favour of the contentious bearded socialist's unstoppable march towards party supremacy but no matter how many diametrically opposed points of view you quaff this summer, the unavoidable...

The Amateurish Toy Unboxers of YouTube

(0) Comments | Posted 26 June 2015 | (13:17)

We are now at the point where everything is on YouTube. Everything. From a beauty blog about blue eye shadow to a lost episode of Dad's Army, everything is documented, ranked and available to view at the drop of a hat. In fact, at the drop of a hat, you...

Russell Brand the Funny Little Essex Boy

(3) Comments | Posted 4 November 2014 | (12:39)

Maybe it's because we come from the same miserable part of Essex that I'm starting to feel for Russell Brand.

I've never seen his act or his films or his TV shows nor read any of his books. I don't think we'd get on much actually. He's a hedonist,...

Stop Talking About Ukip - My Article About Ukip

(13) Comments | Posted 30 April 2014 | (00:00)

Every day in the United Kingdom, anyone who has a passing interest in news and current affairs is subjected to the nonsensical, racist bullshit of the UK Independence Party. Why is this? Well, it appears that right-wing bellyaching jam-for-brain-idiots who used to vote for the current poisonous Tory brand have...

Prisoners Don't Riot in Private Prisons - They're Aggressively Resourceful

(0) Comments | Posted 23 January 2014 | (11:33)

G4S, the private security firm that sounds like a carving in a wood tree, has refused to class a riot in its Oakwood Prison as a 'riot', despite the fact that scenes one would normally associate with rioting were witnessed by prison officers such as upturned pool tables, random things...

What Makes a Show that I've Seen and You Haven't So Good?

(1) Comments | Posted 23 September 2013 | (12:43)

As one of my favourite TV shows of all time comes to a close, it's worth examining why it deserves to be written about by someone like me.

Without a doubt, this show ranks in my top five. My top five includes some TV shows you may have seen but...

Illegal Immigrant Vans Are Not a Good Idea - But They Could Be

(31) Comments | Posted 31 July 2013 | (00:00)

A spokesman for the prime minister said on Monday that the two advertising vans navigating their way through the capital like litigious Pac-Mans, demanding illegal immigrants to 'Go home or face arrest' were "working" and attracting "a great deal of interest", though it is unclear how he came to this...

How the Government Stopped Me From Saving the World

(0) Comments | Posted 25 April 2013 | (14:53)

For those of you who don't know, I'm a superhero. I'm not bragging. It's a fact. I'm different from you.

When I was 17, I went on a picnic date with my neighbour Eloise. We went to our local park equipped with a tartan blanket, a tube of Pringles,...

My Moment with Margaret

(0) Comments | Posted 15 April 2013 | (00:00)

I must have been 10. I think she thought it would be a good press opportunity to meet someone who was also the offspring of a greengrocer. It was an election year after all; that's when politicians agree to do an endless succession of things they don't want to do...

I Want to Be an Unpaid Google Spy - They Just Need to Get the Design Right

(0) Comments | Posted 13 March 2013 | (14:45)

I'm an inquisitive person. I like to know what people are up to. If I'm on a bus, I like to listen in on other people's conversations and jot down any details of their private lives that they may happen to reveal unwittingly. I don't get any kind of perverse...

Salesmen of a Death - Some TV Commercials Terrify Me

(4) Comments | Posted 3 March 2013 | (23:00)

Back in the late 1980s there was a television commercial that frightened me. If it appeared, I would drop my Han Solo and bolt out of the room until it was over. Hiding behind the sofa wasn't good enough for I could still hear the jaunty acoustic guitar and waap-waap...

"I still get people coming up to me in the street and shouting 'Oi, Tone, where's your dossier?' and 'Found those WMDs yet?' which I think shows how much the war resonated with viewers". Tony Blair is in reflective mood as he leans over his grande cappuccino, contemplating another sip....
