The Gift of Idleness

Earning a living in middle-of-nowhere France used to be fairly easy. The housing boom in the UK produced a wave of Brits who came over here and bought rural properties, which were comparitively dirt cheap. Many of these properties needed … Continue reading

Pity the Palestinians

With this latest assault on Gaza, any remaining shred of sympathy I might have had for the Israelis has completely gone. The Israeli Defence Force (IDF) are quite blatantly committing war crimes in Gaza, on a large scale, and the … Continue reading

Paedos and Perverted Justice

In the immediate aftermath of Jimmy Savile’s death, I don’t think too many people were surprised to learn that he was a prolific paedophile; after all, Savile was generally perceived to be ‘a bit weird’ and rumours had been flying … Continue reading

Mr Idogawa speaks out

No apologies for concentrating on Fukushima again, because it’s a huge story, and yet there’s barely a word about it in the mainstream media; but I’ll get on to that later. In the meantime, the following short video is from … Continue reading
