Saint Ed

Ed Miliband by Mark Wallis via Pierre et Gilles
In dear Old Blighty the general election is looming. This image popped into my head for some reason, and all apologies to Pierre et Gilles, whose original picture this really is. My personal politics are in no way reflected in this piece, but I think the point is made. Change is afoot, Michael.

The Crooked Man

The new one pound coin with george Osborne by Mark wallis at
There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile.
He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together in a little crooked house.

Look, everyone! Pretty new things! Anything to distract you from the worst government in British history. Should I submit my George Osborne update for the new one pound coin to The Royal Mint?

Don’t Surrender, Dorothy!

Wizaed of Oz satire of BBC censorship of anti Thatcher song
The BBC is trying to censor a tidal wave of angry sentiment as the people of Britain speak out about the legacy of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher who died this week. As far as I was aware, the job of the BBC is to report the news and educate people, informing them of current affairs. But the surging popularity of Ding Dong! The Witch is Dead from the Wizard of Oz OST shows the world (and the British government) that hatred of the former Premier is much deeper and more far-reaching than anyone could have predicted. The fact that the song may reach number one on the UK Charts is an uncomfortable situation for the BBC and the British media in general as they await the result of the new chart tomorrow (Sunday 14th April 2013.)  The global media is already standing by, popcorn at the ready.

One thing I’ve learnt, particularly from Facebook, is that people will sympathise with extreme politics rather than risk appearing mean-spirited or unpopular. It’s a Miss Congeniality Contest now. It certainly wasn’t back in 1988.

The song can be downloaded here.

The Church of the Poison Mind

Gay Marriage Equality SymbolRemember when interracial marriage was illegal? Hopefully, one day soon, this fight for the most basic of civil rights will be consigned to the same shameful page of history.

Blade Runner Rain

torrential rain turner street manchester

It’s real.

If an iPhone can capture something like rain, then you know it’s really heavy. In the movie Blade Runner, it rains all the time because heavy industry has fucked the ozone layer and the Earth is well and truly in Greenhouse mode. For the past two months, Britain has been drenched and now the States are being ravaged by storms and extreme temperatures. The only person who seems to be speaking out against the Tesco’s and MacDonald’s of this world is Prince Charles. When it comes to voting, is there any other choice but voting for a Green party? Or are we too late?

It’s winter in July.
