My country is such a god damn nanny state, I can't believe this is happening at all - its regressive as all hell, next thing you know women won't be able to have skirts above their ankles and we'll just fully revert back to Victorian England. Obviously that's a bit dramatic, but what's happening is definitely … Continue reading UK to ban porn (kinda)

The fact that the SNP smashed Labour out of Scotland, proving left-wing politics are very electable and the mountains of people claiming in despite of all evidence that he's unelectable. I think we … Continue reading Corbyn “unelectable” : Origins

It furthers disenfranchisement and leaves people feeling totally unconnected from the people they elected to represent them. It's … Continue reading Are our MPs accountable?
