B.Sc Street Walking (Hons)

2nd October 2018 2

The BBC has two stories this week: the first of these is in the form of a question, and the second is the answer to that question – only the BBC is too dim to notice. The question is: “Now that young people are drinking less, what do they find to do to amuse themselves in freshers’ week – and … [Read on]

Counter Jumpers

Went to get my flu jab today after being told I could visit the ‘walk in clinic’ between 8.45 – 12 noon.

28th September 2018 0

You don’t need to be a fully-paid-up conspiracy theorist to notice the sustained press campaign against President Trump. They are all at it – with one or two honourable exceptions they all name Trump as a disaster. Often the lies and calumnies of the press are beyond breath-taking.
