Tommy Robinson supporters – just admit you’re racist

Earlier on today I tweeted something along the lines of; “To anyone expressing their support for Tommy Robinson – I’d like to take this unique opportunity to invite you all to take a long walk off a short pier, preferably whilst wearing ankle weights and a titanium straight-jacket”. Somewhat tongue-in-cheek, but nonetheless, I’ve taken a […]

Men: Us calling out Harvey Weinstein isn’t enough

It’s great news that Harvey Weinstein is being charged for rape and abuse. This vile excuse for a man has terrorised countless women in Hollywood, and deserves the full weight of the law to be rained down upon him. It’s less heartening to see he’s been granted bail, but hopefully a guilty verdict will make […]

Windrush: the scandal that should bring down the government

There is a lot of things this government has done to surprise me in terms of sheer immorality and reckless abandon for humanity.

Labour must champion the cause of mental health

Awareness may be higher than it’s ever been, but treatment is too difficult to access […]

‘Maybot’ doth protest too much

Last week, our worshipful overlord Mrs May, told Test Match Special, and I quote; ‘I’m not robotic’. Funny, that’s just what a robot would say. Coincidence? I think not… On a serious note though, this interview was a wince-inducing affair, and served only to further highlight just how numbered our Prime Minister’s days really are. […]

The Tory Hunger Scandal

If I were to sit down and write an article, even in list form, of the reasons this government deserves to be brought down, all of the different forms its damage to the country is taking, and all of its acts of immorality, I’d be sat down for a long time. In fact, I’d be […]

Why ‘Activate’ can’t replicate the success of Momentum

There’s been a flurry of social media activity surrounding the disastrous Tory attempt at rivalling Momentum with their (imaginatively named) ‘Activate’. This has intensified after a leaked Whatsapp group chat, which has been described as a ‘precursor’ to ‘Activate’ included tasteless jokes about ‘gassing chavs’ and ‘shooting peasants’. Much of the left was shocked. I […]
