“HE’S MAD, TOTALLY NUTS, AWFUL FOR THE COUNTRY,” says the banker about Corbyn, but isn’t it time we heard something different?

Jeremy Corbyn was slammed by the media this week for suggesting a maximum wage cap. Corbyn always seems to be on the wrong end of the media. “He’s totally nuts,” everyone says. “What an idiot,” they say. “Bless him,” they sigh. And they’re right. HOW DARE HE SUGGEST SUCH A LUDICROUS IDEA. HOW DARE HE…

2017: Drugs, death, science.

FOR A MAN WITH NO FINGERS, TIME IS IMMEASURABLE. Time with a capital T. Time in italics. Time, whispers the dealer to the school-child. It’s the eighth of January, the Christmas tree has gone, it’s raining and foggy outside, I’m stood waiting for the bus and I wonder if anyone else has ever waited for…

Our fortune is unfortunate

This has been a difficult week. I’ve had a lot to catch up on because I’ve been away. These words were the only way I could make sense of some of things that have happened this week. Drying silk smells like the seaside, did you know? A festering smell of fortune. This is their fortune.…

FABRIC: TEST MY DRUGS, PLEASE

Islington Council’s decision to allow the iconic club Fabric to re-open is of course monumental for London’s clubbing scene.

Mrs. “Un-elected” May has just pushed through the most savage surveillance bill in the…

Sunday Musings 13/11/2016

WE ARE STILL HERE. President Elect of the United States, Mr. Donald Trump. Fair enough, Mr. Trump. Fair enough. Democracy wins. ¬†I still can’t quite get my head around it, though. His squished, orange face, sat in the oval office, telling people what to do. Telling a whole country what to do. HE HAS MISSILES.…

DON’T FORGET TO CONSUME, AND CONSUME TO FORGET

Could¬†Christmas come at a better time? Trump is President, the world is melting, the alt-right is on the rise, ignorance is rife, refugees are freezing on the streets, bombs keep falling, Russia keeps grinning sadistically at me, Yemen is on the brink of collapse, North Korea keeps blowing stuff up, people are starving, old people…

Trump(ed) but not defeated

Anything but inevitable, Trump is now president of the United States. Donald J Trump. The man who tried to brand steaks.   Does this mean every American is a racist now? Does this mean everyone in America is on-board with sexual assault? Does this mean every American is an idiot? Does this mean liberal ideology…
