  • To or not to do?

    I have a problem with to-do lists. It’s definitely a “me problem” but a problem nonetheless. As soon as anything goes on a to-do list, it might as well have been consigned to Room 101. It ain’t happening. These days, work generally either comes in by way of a Jira ticket or email. I’m all […]

  • Golden visas for oligarch offspring

    Did you hear the one about when the British government gave foreign investors a golden visa if they promised to invest 2-million quid.

Apparently, he was searching for “tractors” and […]

  • Rain on a bank holiday

    It’s Mayday bank holiday weekend and it’s raining. Given everything else that’s happening in the world, that’s such a minor problem.

  • Watching porn in the House of Commons

    If I was to watch porn at work, I would be fired. Quite rightly so. Even without the reverence of ministerial office, work is just not the place for that kind of behaviour. Do that in your own time and in your own space.

  • Off Twitter

    Elon Musk is now at the helm of Twitter. Right now, it’s hard to say if that will make a noticeable difference or not but if Elon has his way, Twitter could become a very different place. With that in mind, I think it’s time I started posting here again. Here, I have free speech, […]

  • Pilchard got a YouTube channel

    My other persona got a fancy official channel. That’s like a Twitter blue tick for musicians on YouTube
