Je Suis Ankara…Non Monsieur!

Posted on March 16, 2016

Ankara, the capital of Turkey was blasted by a car bomb for the third time in three months on Sunday, once again claiming dozens of lives and leaving the bustling city in a state of confused chaos. It made the news for a while, gaining about the same coverage as England being crowned Six Nations Champions at rugby and Arsenal going about their obligatory late season collapse at football. Then everyone forgot about and watched 'The Night ...

Donald Trump and the Redneck Dream

Posted on March 15, 2016

Google Tax Bill

Posted on January 25, 2016

When I was looking like a retard on a cross trainer at the gymnasium this morning, I couldn't help but notice on the screen in front of me someone talking about Google and a corporation tax settlement of £130 million that is to be paid to the HMRC. There was a horrible patronising woman MP on the programme (called something like Penelope Cameron-Puppet) claiming that a payment of £130 million on profits dating back to 2005 was something of ...
