On the other hand, if you prefer blogs that aren’t seven years out of date, then my current blog is Banditry; I also occasionally write articles for Liberal Conspiracy, and I wrote a fair few pieces for now-defunct group blog The Sharpener, also now archived around these parts. Or if you prefer media forms that aren’t themselves retro-tending-to-obsolete, then I’m on Twitter.]]>
For those of you who lied, twisted, cheated and bullied until the least worst choice available to me was to close the site, congratulations. You’ve won. I hope it was worth it. It would be ungracious of me to hope that bad things happen to you in return, so I’ll merely take solace in my knowledge that you have to go through life having a personality like that… Good work, fellas.
My writings will continue on the Sharpener (another good place to argue), and perhaps elsewhere.
Update: thanks to everyone for all your support. Too many links to acknowledge, but I really appreciate them all. I’m going to miss this site, including the people who think I’m a dick but don’t seek to screw up my life because I’ve written something they dislike.]]>
If you think that the fuel price is so high it’s causing you serious suffering, that’s because you live in the wrong place and/or have the wrong job. Nobody in a country the size of the UK needs to take a long commute for a low-paid job, and anyone with a high-paid job can easily afford to drive even at current fuel prices.
Meanwhile, if truckers are suffering because they can’t raise rates and still attract custom, that’s clearly a sign that we have too many of them. They should ask for adjustment grants to sell up and learn how to do something desirable, rather than continuing their economically and environmentally unsustainable way of life. If they did, I’d be strongly in favour of helping them out.]]>
Will the President ever sack so many minions that he has to take responsibility for something himself?
Is 47 years a sensible sentence for someone who’s clearly and undeniably a venal tit but not a terrorist? (if you dispute my categorisation, read here. If you still dispute my categorisation, then learn how to read).
What kind of gormless blinkered right-wing arsewit can possibly claim that Hollywood is liberal, in the week where a pro-exorcism movie tops the box office? (answer: many. Best example left in the comments wins some kind of prize.)
Finally, yay us! Good effort; it’s nice to see the British police and judiciary conspiring to lock up foreigners who’re actually guilty and actually deserve it… shame he was tipped off, really.]]>
Indeed, we’re under threat from tides of evil immigrants, here to steal our women and convert us all to their barbaric laws. I wonder if they have Sharia in Ireland, Germany, the USA, South Africa and Italy…?]]>
The same poll finds that Pakistan is sufficiently unpleasant that Pakistanis would be willing to emigrate to China. Bonus points for anyone who draws up a table comparing levels of religious fervour among a country’s rulers to the extent that people want to emigrate there…]]>
