About Me

I am a Brit. I am a working class child of the troubles in Belfast who now lives a life of privilege. I am an anti-racist, progressive monster for truth. If I fail in being that monster, call me out....

If I was getting my A level, Degree or Masters results right now I would be so screwed.

Looking at the guidelines that came out today in the UK re how students are going to be awarded their final grades made me feel so sorry for a whole load of kids who would have kicked arse in the final exams but if you score them out of course work, class participation and mock exams they come out at nil point. Through the history of my life of getting the certificates I needed to do well, I used my knowledge sucking brain to great advantage for a month before any exams. Suck in huge amount of knowledge and then spew it out over a fortnight to ensure I got the right result. Never a fan of classrooms and tutorials, this was my method for both my law degree and my MBA. With this new method of grading I would be a bid fat F for fail. My history teacher, when I was doing A levels, who laughed like a drain when I pulled of an A having not really paid attention in class, would have loved being able to give me my final grade! It would not have been an A (shocker).

I feel so sorry for the kids this year. It really is horrid for them.

This letter is appalling. I can't even...


Ladies and gentleman the supposed leader of the free world during a pandemic.. this is something else. 👀

Take all the seats

Exactly. All the frigging seats in the world are not enough seats for all the seats he needs to take.

It's the final countdown...

A timeline for the ages…
Took them 40 years but they have finally brought the USA to its knees.

Good Goph, Oh My!

Dancing with tears in my eyes

It is not nuclear war, but it feels something close to that when you are living at the centre of a pandemic.

Just saying, be safe and hold those that hold your heart fucking close.

Just put up a link in the Lounge for the April competition

Please keep it kicked

Hello my lovely loungers, just a heads up in case you missed it, that...

The April photo contest has been launched in all its splendid glory here:


I fully expect to see you marvellous DUers to do your bit and contribute a picture of your interpretation of the competition. You know I am going to nag you all to find something special to contribute, so you may as will give in gracefully!!!

Also can I ask that even if you don't want to play keep this kicked so others who miss it this time, might see it sometime later. I am not to proud to beg!!!


Jules Feiffer: Remember To Wash Your Hands

91 and still going strong
Wash our hands of the whole bloody lot of them I say!!!!

There is a real truth here...

Brutal but factual. Maybe when all this is over some of those who think we live in a 'post racist world' where 'all blue lives matter', might start looking at things from a different perspective? One can hope.
