People Like Me

Um… Are you sure about that?

Hold on. Let me check my grammar…

No. I’m sorry. What I actually meant the title to convey was “People demographically similar to myself”. Should I change it?

Can you be bothered?

Not really.

OK. So, what is this all about, then?

What is this strange, unfamiliar feeling? I feel that I remember it from the distant past. Oh yes! It the unexpected joy of waking up to election results that are, so far, not completely shit.

Smartphone Review

Much to the amusement of many of my colleagues, it is 2019 and I have just got my first ever smartphone at the age of 48 and a bit. I want to talk about this.

Tactical Homophobia

It takes a lot to make me angry enough to talk about anything other than Brexit, and normal service will be resumed shortly, I promise. In the meantime get a load of these sick fucks:

The cynicism here is staggering!

No-Deal Brexit Plan

I have done all my no-deal Brexit contingency planning. I am willing to share this with you but the plan relies on absolute secrecy so you must sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement not to tell anybody. Please tick the box below, print and sign the article, and then fax it back to me before reading further.

The Stupidest Day of The Year

Some of you may remember me suggesting that February 14th was the Stupidest Day of The Year*. That was not meant to be interpreted as a challenge!
