There's a weird level of cognitive dissonance about people who are happy to participate in the killing of literally millions of fish, but get upset about dolphins. I've always maintained that the only reason most people find dolphins adorable is because...

A difficulty with sowing seeds in wild or semi-wild corners is my ignorance in plant identification. For instance, there are I think various kinds of buttercup that are poisonous but which look quite like land cress, so while the land cress seeds itself...

Is it a recession caused by Coronavirus? No this is not a recession caused by Coronavirus. It has been brewing for a long time. Successive governments around the world failed to learn the lessons of the Global Financial Crisis and it looks as if we are...
