Did you think I’d forgotten you? Perhaps you hoped I had. It’s been a while since I last wrote. For that, I can only apologise. Not that it matters, not even my own mother reads what I write. I should have finished my writing from my time in the States, but there’s something acutely uninspiring […]Read more "Welcome Back."

I’m also sorry for the poor writing and lack of funny that will be found in this post, as […]Read more "Making America Great Again: Part Three – The Race to 270: My Presidential Prediction"

To witness ‘The Donald’ become elected as the forty-fifth President of the United States, […]Read more "Making America Great Again – Part One: Shipping up in Boston"
In a recent interview with a 13-year-old refugee from Afghanistan, Lily Allen apologised on behalf of the UK for our part in the refugee crisis in Calais. Unsurprisingly, there has been a considerable backlash online. Critics argued that Allen should not be apologising on behalf of an entire nation. The point of emphasis of this […]Read more "Why should we help? Because we can: A defence of Lily Allen."
I’m a little late to the conversation with this, so please forgive me. It’s been a few days since a recording of Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, surfaced.
