Madonna’s stupid comments

Monday, March 31st, 2008

I was angered when Madonna of all people criticised London transport last week. She has also criticised the NHS in the past. I am not interested in ignorant rich people who think the roads, hospitals and other such useful things were invented purely for them but I am furious that they think they can comment […]

From Champagne to Climate Change

Tuesday, March 25th, 2008

I’m back in London after a very refreshing holiday in Wales. The highlight was sitting in a hot tub looking at the moon whilst sipping champagne. That was pretty good. The worst bit was probably the time we trudged miles in the pouring rain but that was pretty mild compared to the wet adventure I […]

Wet Wales

Saturday, March 15th, 2008

We arrived in Wales via Liverpool and Chester to find that the rugby is occupying everyone. The weather is of the wet drizzly kind that the UK is so famous for. As always the countryside makes me want to stay inside but it’s pretty nice inside because I can see geese, horses and little deer […]

MOD in shock horror 1984 history rewrite

Luckily instead of blindly walking into the classroom and teaching this 1984 style […]

It’s pleasing to see that student unions are taking the lead even if the universities lag behind. This was particularly cheering news for […]

Big treasures and little boxes

Thursday, March 6th, 2008

We’re busy moving out of the flat so everything is in boxes. There is that sad sort of emptiness when you leave somewhere and you’re packing up all the possessions you treasure or need into little boxes and bags. We’re attempting to live a relatively possession free lifestyle but there seems to be a never […]

Walmart = death, destruction and all things bad

Sunday, March 2nd, 2008

I have just finished watching a film called ‘What would Jesus buy’ featuring a rather eccentric activist Reverend Billy. The group he has set up has been campaigning about a variety of things but the film focuses on the anti consumerism message. Combined with the anti Walmart film I indulged in last night I am […]
