A Step Forward – Girl Guides

The Girl Guides of the UK have made a change. It’s a minor one really. It’s nothing big. But one that I applaud.

Losing With Grace

It’s gg and well played to us. The Church of England has accepted defeat in the fight to give the GLBT the same rights as straight couples. They are officially ceasing their direct support (naturally, Individual priests may still carry the fight) against anti-GLBT marriage. The scale of the majority in both the Commons and …

A Voice for Me – Judgy Bitch 2 – Electric Blogaloo

Judgy Bitch came to my attention for her frankly lunatic take on a rape trial in the USA where she proceeded to blame the victim of rape as someone trying to gain social approval by “shagging high value males”.

Turn Right To Leave London

The problem with right-wing immigration ideas is that they recognise a problem (AKA uncontrolled immigration) and then completely go off the rails with solutions and fears that mainly appeal to a certain kind of person. Graeme Archer unfortunately is at the helm of this piece of tabloid hack journalism meant to fear monger it’s way …

The Nice Boys Next Door

I used to live in Leeds, a lovely little city in Yorkshire. Home to the debauchery of the Otley Run, the triple sports of Football, Cricket and Rugby and a tale of tragedy. The first boy was born at the Leeds General Infirmary and lived all his life in Leeds. His father worked as a …
