The issue of rights and autonomy is too serious, too precious to give up, even in the face of imminent tragedy
This may be of limited interest but it does have a political angle. There’s a 10 part video doing the rounds called ‘Fall of the Cabal‘. It’s a conspiracy theorist’s wet dream but it’s dangerous in so far as it’s gaining populist traction for reasons that, quite frankly are beyond me. Anyway – I’ve been […]
A Tory MP who really isn’t lying? Really?
We’ll be back just as soon as people see what they voted for.

It was pretty clear then that few people understood what the Convention was about so I put […]
How do you think the government is doing so far? Here’s a rundown.
Many people support the proposal to increase sentences for those convicted of defacing war memorials to a maximum of 10 years imprisonment.
