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....

Socialised Medicine? The Horror!!!

My partner had a health crisis last night. We decided to wait and see if the situation had improved this morning and it hadn't. So I call an ambulance. They were here in less than 15 minutes. Thorough check over and off they went to Accident and Emergency. Saw a doctor within 20 minutes. Barrage of tests, some medical interventions, a referral to the right expert department (to be seen within the next two weeks) and home within 5 hours in total.

Cost of invoice - well there wasn't one, of course...

How could anyone not agree that this is a great model for the average chap and chapette? How could anyone who is being clobbered by the private insurance model ever vote to continue being mugged by the system every time they get sick, when it does not have to be that way? It is not logical.

I am such a communist

Cholesterol's Cunning Comfort 'Cause Chickenhawk

Of course I am not death wishing the President. Death wishing is never OK. But maybe... not well enough to run again? I would take that, or debilitated enough to not have any more energy not to steal democracy anymore..

Either way - the sign is genius.


Iran pledges to kill thousands of Americans by opening gun stores across the Midwest (satire)

The notorious middle-east country Iran has announced a plan to kill thousands of Americans by opening gun stores across the midwest and selling firearms at discount prices.

With an evil cackle, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei told jubilant supporters this plan would result in the deaths of untold thousands of Americans every year.

The new stores will offer discounts of up to 10%, with a guarantee to beat the price of any gun sold at competing vendors and will give loyalty cards offered to anyone buying more than two firearms a year.


To be fair though...that would work. After all guns in America are the biggest threat by far to peoples safety in America, Iran has nothing on the NRA...

Just a reminder (not that you need one) of another reason why 2020 is so important...

Of course with Trump it goes soooooo much further than this, but also this.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg says she is 'cancer-free' after spate of health scares

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is starting the year off “cancer-free” and has resumed an active role as part of the supreme court’s liberal bloc.

In a rare interview with CNN, the 86-year-old justice, whose health has preoccupied the public as the court shifts to the right under Donald Trump’s presidency, offered an update: “I’m cancer-free. That’s good,” she said, sounding “energized”, according to CNN.


Hurrah!!! That is marvellous news, not just about her health but the SC...

Hope, crying and smiling in one bloody marvellous tweet


Here's a video to give you hope & make you smile: our warrior princess Nusayba gave her liver donor @ShawnZed a hug today after ringing the bell. After 9 months of enduring stage 4 liver cancer, she is officially cancer free. I'm so proud of her. She is the bravest person I know.

In a time when anger and despair is a regular part of our daily lives...THIS

Who are you feeling the love for in the Labour Leader race? (Poll)

With Barry Gardiner threatening to put his hat in the ring as a left alternative to Rebecca Long Bailey, bringing up to 7 the MPs who fancy their chances... who are you leaning towards at the moment?

I am behind Jess Phillips, with Lisa Nandy a very close second. However part of me does not want either of them to win this time round as I do not think, for one second, that the leader who tries to heal the party will be the Labour Leader who will be Prime Minister. 5 years to the next election, and the swing next time round will be too big to take power. All they can do is hope to chip away at it enough to make a win possible in 2029, which means the election of a new leader is distinctly possible after the next general election, step in Jess or Lisa at that point? It is a thought.

Who do you want and why???

Hey Ladies, How Could You POSSIBLY Resist...

So much toxic masculinity, misogyny, racism and coercive control in one very nasty ad. One has to wonder why he is still single?!?!?!

And he can't even spell...or use word check. What a complete tool.
