  • liberation and freedom

    24 May 2020

    Vaccines are a goddamned triumph of human ingenuity and science over the cruelty and indifference of Nature. Before vaccines, a defining feature of human life was the inevitability of pain, sickness, and early death. Especially of children- people had...

  • "the fossil age" is ending

    22 May 2020

    One of the most remarkable things for me in this crisis has been just how readily people will change their behaviour if they agree they have to. I don't think most of the world would resist decisive action on climate change - I think the problem is that...

  • Off-Shore - Tax dodging

    21 May 2020

    One of the primary methods is corporate profit-shifting. This is where a multinational company registers its headquarters in a low-corporation tax jurisdiction and then books its profits there, rather than in the country in which it actually makes its...

  • Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness

    05 May 2018

    constantly striving for personal gains can damage connections with others. In other words, Wanting to be happy can actually make you less happy. a meaningful life and a happy life overlap in certain ways, but are ultimately very different. pursuing a...

  • Apple is wiretapping us

    20 May 2020

    It is worrying that Apple (and undoubtedly not just Apple) keeps ignoring and violating fundamental rights and continues their massive collection of data. There is a concern that big tech companies are basically wiretapping entire populations despite...

  • Outsourcing - Why?

    19 May 2020

    The crisis has exposed as never before the costs of an unquestioning commitment to a internationalist dogma that has caused states to become dangerously dependent upon vulnerable extended supply chains for vital medical supplies, including life-saving...

  • leadership in a benighted nation

    18 May 2020

    people would wear masks if they thought it would protect them from catching coronavirus but they won't wear them to protect other people from it. Sad state of affairs in this selfish rudderrless country. Such behaviour will (and has) contributed to a...

  • Coal or renewable energy

    17 May 2020

    The global coal industry will “never recover” because the crisis has proved renewable energy is cheaper for consumers and a safer bet for investors. A long-term shift away from dirty fossil fuels has accelerated during the lockdown, bringing forward power...

  • In a Jam - Easy-Peasy

    17 May 2020

    Jam is a lot easier to make than most people think. It also doesn't have to be a mammoth effort - potting make a couple of jars is entirely possible and reasonable. The best jams are ones that really taste different to shop-bought (blackcurrant or raspberry...

  • acceptance of the lockdown

    17 May 2020

    acceptance of the lockdown is based on its exceptional nature, whether this continues will be a result of things like the NHS collapsing and whether the government gets a grip with the testing and isolation of infected people. To be fair to them the furlough...

  • incompetent this government is.

    17 May 2020

    I still find it quite disorientating just how incompetent this government is. First there was their ham-fisted attempt to prorogue parliament. Then they needlessly threw away their parliamentary majority. Then they caved on the Withdrawal Agreement and...

  • Children should cook in Lockdown

    15 May 2020

    Children should cook Children love to chop up stuff. Teach them how to use a knife safely, remind them that they are in control of the knife, that makes a big difference if they are a little fearful at the beginning. Chop veg like courgettes that are...

  • immediate access to a major metropolis

    15 May 2020

    this outbreak has made everyone realise how absurd the notion most of our employment has to be focused in London when it is quite clear that the jobs can be done just as well in Milton Keynes or Chesterfield. Maybe we can work as a country on not making...

  • Infections: What makes them travel

    15 May 2020

    Infections Germs are a part of everyday life and are found in our air, soil, water, and in and on our bodies. Some germs are helpful, others are harmful. Many germs live in and on our bodies without causing harm and some even help us to stay healthy....

  • together in a common cause

    14 May 2020

    The state in order to properly rule needs Consent Consent gained from an open society An open government Officials that are open Shared open documents We have many luxuries Life is not a luxury Health is not a luxury So much of our life is not a luxury...

  • around smiling and smirking

    13 May 2020

    Transparency is key in a crisis - so why isn't the British government being straight with us? we have clique in power that have given us brexit...... what were the consequences of lying through their teeth for 3+ years ... they got re-elected with a majority............

  • The corporate takeover of Britain

    24 June 2020

    The corporate takeover in Britain is complete. Green groups have long been subverted in order to let the construction industry get away with murder. And it's the housing "developments" which are the worst of them all. Somehow people believe that they...

  • a can of tuna and a can of beans

    11 May 2020

    I'm quite proud of how I'm stretching a can of tuna and a can of beans these days. It actually began with seeing too many travel shows and longing for the Mediterranean. So I decided to bake a batch of dinner rolls in the Mediterranean style: just flour,...

  • time to consider down-sizing

    11 May 2020

    The danger is that the only comparison point you have is to "the way things were" and without being Cassandra-like about it, those times are not coming back any time soon. I think I can reassure you that the prospect of you having to commute every day...

  • Planting seeds indoors

    28 April 2020

    This year i have chanced upon a revelatory way to ensure maximum seed sprouting. I sow seeds into any trays small enough to be secured in a large freezer bag (i can fit your average 4-6 'pod' seed tray in a bag and secure it) and leave them in a spot...

  • But here we are.

    24 April 2020

    yesterday we learnt that one of the gvt's genius ideas for ramping up testing was to hand over testing to, ahem, Deloitte! And unsurprisingly that testing facility has been such a disaster some hospitals have stopped having any dealings with it as they...

  • Cats are great

    05 January 2020

    Cats are great because they acknowledge you even when you're in your own funk and bring you back to reality. Human people'll happily be oblivious to you whilst you're in your own little Don Quixote fantasy, but a cat will see through that bullshit and...

  • Staying alive.

    05 April 2020

    Staying alive. Keeping a distance whilst shopping. Keeping a distance full stop. Social distancing works, but not enough people are doing it in some places, Staying at home is a good advice. Washing hands. Not touching eyes and face is important. Social...
