Utter Irrelevances

Everyone Hates David Cameron and his Tory Friends

Last Saturday a shit tonne of people descended on London for the People’s Assembly‘s March for Health, Homes, Jobs and Education to vent their many frustrations at the Tory government’s handling of pretty much everything.

Despite 150,000 people from all over the UK calling on David Cameron to resign (baring in mind the Panama Papers recently shed light on a £30,000 payment he received from his dad’s morally ambiguous tax avoidance schemes; that his party is in disarray over the EU referendum, and the entire country was appalled by his government’s efforts to give yet more tax breaks to the richest at the expense of disabled people… oh, and he allegedly face-fucked a dead pig) most of the Sunday papers couldn’t be arsed to report on it.


Where the hell has the Monkeyboy been?

Forgiveness, please!

Apologies are in order.

It has been far too bloody long since I last blasted my incoherent ramblings on these here webpages, and for that I am truly sorry. Allow me to explain the reasons for this blogging transgression.

September 2015 was a pivotal month, one in which I was to complete my master’s dissertation project. And just when I should have been concentrating harder than I’ve ever concentrated before, I negligently got myself a bloody job back in Korea…


How do you spell muslim?

Murdoch is a dick, but you probably knew that already. Check out this tweet:

Each individual muslim, each and every single one of three billion on this planet is personally responsible for the horrendous acts carried out by the few? Surely, anyone with a primary school level of education can see the utter piffle in this logic.


Human rights guaranteed, if you can afford it!

You can’t marry who you want. Did you know that? You might think you can, but in this country, you can’t.

Now, you might say that’s rubbish. You might say, “This 2014. This is the UK. This is a democracy. I can settle down with any gender of any race, colour or creed I choose. It is a basic human right. The right to a private and family life is protected in the UK by the Human Rights Act of 1998.”

Well, you’d be wrong.


Being British ain’t that Great

“English Gentleman. Wayne Rooney. Manchester United. The Queen. Sherlock Holmes. Tea. etc, etc, etc…”

Barely a day went by during my ten years in the Far East without someone uttering one of those words at me. They were usually followed by a showering of praise and the occasional emulation of my accent. Brightening up someone’s day merely by being foreigner was really rather special.

Europeans might see us as larger-loutish football hooligans, but in Asia, particularly in Korea, the Brits have got a great reputation. It seems they don’t know our terrible secret: Being British really isn’t all that great.
