It still blows my mind that it’s so easy to record a video chat across the Atlantic and then put it online. That’s just one of the things we ended up talking about in my chat with the broadcasting legend, Michael Harrison who is self-isolating in Florida. He also talked about the state of play […]

New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, is a weak leader and one of the worst people in the world to be in charge of this special country right now. I used to like Jacinda Ardern. I thought she was different to the power hungry megalomaniacs running other countries in the world. It turns out, I […]

I won’t be playing Britain’s favourite Christmas song on the radio. “Fairytale of New York” by The Pogues is consistently voted Britain’s most popular Christmas song but thanks to a ruling by the broadcast regulator, Ofcom, I won’t be playing it on London’s Fix Radio, the radio station for builders and tradespeople. In August this […]

Picture This

25Apr18

The older generation complain about young people constantly looking at screens on tablets or phones. They accuse them of not being fully present, especially if those screen-obsessed kids are surrounded by amazing things going on around them. Frustrated parents have gone on Twitter and shared pictures of their kids surrounded by natural beauty – but […]

There’s a sports car on the way to Mars! It’s the most exciting thing to happen in space since we sent people to the moon.

Beware of the tolerance paradox! Australians have voted to legalise same sex marriage. In a national survey, 61.6% of voters voted yes to a change in the law, 38.4% were opposed. Almost 40% of those who voted were against a change in the law. This morning I watched an interview on Sky News with lady […]

Mourning Show

03Sep17

Football Crazy

02Aug17

English football clubs are missing out on revenue because of a dumb rule THEY agreed to more than fifty years ago. We got news this week that it’s going to get harder to watch the Premier League on TV this season. A lot of people have been watching games on Kodi through PCs, X-Boxes, Google TV […]

Super Sneaky

The environment is being destroyed by the Supermarkets of Britain. When you shop at any of Britain’s big supermarkets, you’re not given environmentally friendly, biodegradable bags to take your shopping home in. You’re given plastic bags. These bags can take hundreds of years to break down. They’re clogging drains and waterways and killing wildlife. The […]

The Royal Navy ship, HMS Somerset spotted it off the east coast of the UK on Friday morning and followed it through the Strait of Dover.
