More Accomplished Racists Are Available…

With just nine days to go, First Dog on the Moon has published a handy voting guide to the UK general election. It’s definitely worth reading. Though I fear that his advice will be disregarded, and the current gang of … Continue reading

As far as I am concerned, the Guardian’s First Dog On The Moon sums up the clusterfuck that is Brexit very well indeed.

The Mother of Parliaments

Jos Collignon, the political cartoonist of the Dutch Volkskrant newspaper sums up the shenanigans of Boris Johnson and his gang of shits, charlatans and shysters (thank you, John Crace) pretty accurately this week… I see Farage has muscled in on … Continue reading

Be Careful What You Wish For…

Boris Johnson’s throwaway remark that “Brexit means Brexit and we are going to make a Titanic success of it.” proves a hostage to Fortune. It’s really not going to end well, I’m afraid.

This Isn’t A Pub Anymore!

Yesterday’s Jesus and Mo is a humorous allegory on a current topic. Cardinal Keith O’Brien is credited as the scriptwriter.

Rare Exports

I know I’ve blogged about this short film before, but I really think it is a little gem for Christmastime. The makers have now come up with a full-length feature film on the same theme, but I can’t help feeling … Continue reading
