When a friend writes a Facebook rant it is as if they are vomiting, quite deliberately, all over your day. It starts like this:I'm sorry but... And it ends like this:..Right. Rant over!!!The 'Rant over' is, in many ways, more offensive even than the rant itself.

How do we learn to control anger? It is of course very complex and difficult and sometimes no matter what we try to do, it's going to come up. The more we know about what causes our anger the better we are able to make choices about how we want to respond when we are angry.

People don't mean any genuine harm, on anyone I would have to believe, but like mine, many working class families read The Sun newspaper and early on adopt a belief that all Muslims bomb people, that the country is overran with immigrants and that people on benefits are lazy *****.

The "Winner Syndrome" or "winnering" is the process of trying to convince someone that your point of view is more valid then his or her's. It completely stops communication because you aren't listening to the other person's side when you're "winnering."

This morning I arrived back to London after a month away. I had been traveling for 48 hours straight. I was a little tired to say the least. I turned on my phone; it was like welcoming an old friend (an old friend that had been relegated to an occasional acquaintance for the last 4 weeks due to international roaming charges). A call came through almost immediately.

Road rage, car rage, plane rage. There seems to be a rage for everything these days! Rarely a week goes by without some report of someone who has 'lost it' as the red mist descended. The reasons are, in my view, twofold; on the one hand our expectations have risen steadily and on the other hand, so have our stress levels.

What could have driven a professional young man to such rage? It occurred to me that many people assume when someone does something wrong on the road it is a sign of disrespect to the other driver, instead of the more likely reasons, namely, uncertainty of the way, stress or confusion.

I don't make heavy metal music. I guess if I had to label what I do in my band, Sweet Billy Pilgrim, it would be with something wince-inducing like 'progressive ambient pop' written in a tasteful calligraphic hand on expensive washi paper and tied with jute cord to a bonsai tree, probably by a vegetarian.
