European Parliamentary Election literature: small parties

BNP Needless to say, the BNP is a pathetic party of mindless xenophobes with moronic policies. Their election leaflet has come in for a ton of criticism too, and rightly so. My dad picked up on their use of a Spitfire at the very top of the leaflet: The Spitfire was used in a war […]

Merry seasonal wintervus festivage greetings

I am in two minds about Christmas. I adore the day itself. And despite the fact that I am a Pastafarian, I feel no contradiction in celebrating Christmas, despite what Malc says. After all, without Christmas — or any similar winter festival — these months would be fairly rotten all round. It is good sense […]

Merry Chrifsmas

Yes, I am a liberal elite atheist trying to ban Christmas, and proud of it! Not really. Everyone else can celebrate it as much as they like as far as I’m concerned. But I don’t celebrate Christmas for religious reasons, and I don’t see any point in pretending otherwise. I am celebrating though. Wintervals are […]

A good start

Ukip libertarian? I think not

One of the most interesting things about libertarians is how quickly their devotion to free markets and capitalism disappear so quickly as soon as it involves those dirty foreigners getting a piece of the action. The Devil’s Kitchen likes to describe himself as a libertarian (as he did in a self-congratulatory post today) and makes […]

I wish you an enjoyable winterfest

Okay, so on my return to regular blogging I’m going to tackle an issue which has been getting me a bit annoyed over the past month or so. I call it political correctness gone mad gone mad. You know, when people are obviously looking too hard for supposed examples of political correctness, like they’ve decided […]

Bibles aren’t banned; propaganda is

Gideon — He follows me everywhere, that bloke! I was staying in a hotel once, he left his bible behind there, as well. And two years later, another hotel, dozy git left it behind again! –Dave Lister This week’s edition of the Student newspaper, home of the nation’s best writing and journalism, of course, is […]
