Top Sharia

27Sep17

Britain’s budget shop, ‘Poundland’ has been hit with a backlash because it sells Peanut M&M knock-offs called ‘Nutters’. The packets have three peanut-shaped cross-eyed cartoon characters on them with their mouths wide open. Mental health campaigners say that they are “offensive” and have called for Poundland to stop selling them. We live in a strange […]


Apple are starting to confuse me now. The new iPhone is out, actually there are two new ones. The iPhone 8 replaces the iPhone 7. They’ve also released the iPhone 10 (X). They’ve skipped 9 completely. Each new Apple phone has more features than the last but they’re also taking things away. The iPhone 7, […]


No Panda Pop

12Sep17

Edinburgh Zoo has announced that their female giant panda will NOT give birth to cubs this year. Just before the last public holiday of the year, the zoo announced that Tian Tian might be expecting, which reminded us that the zoo still has pandas and might be worth a visit. It is the sixth time […]


Do you brush your teeth in the shower? A major debate has broken out on Twitter. Some people say it’s the way to go but others say it’s just plain weird. I brush my teeth in the shower because I have a shower rather than a bath. And peeing in the bath is disgusting. Craic […]

The things politicians think are important are usually different to the things that the people who voted for them think are important. The bongs of Big Ben in Westminster have sounded for the final time for four years. The clock is being repaired. Members of Parliament gathered outside the Houses of Parliament yesterday to mark […]


The Wet Office

21Aug17

It’s bad enough that we haven’t had a summer but why can’t the Met Office get it right? Right now, it’s pouring down in the South East of England. It’s on days like these every year that I go back and look at the forecast that the Met Office issued three months ago, promising us […]

Has another bogus theory been thrown out there? Is it keeping us from the truth?

Exit Plan

19Jun17

Exit signs are in the wrong place. It’s hard to imagine the true horror of what people must have gone through in London’s tower block fire. For the people who were trapped inside it must have been hell. I’ve never had to find my way out of a burning building. From what I’ve heard, the […]

Here’s what I’ve been up to on BOBfm lately: The lady who got her hand stuck down the toilet. Why is there always a single shoe by the side of the road? The British media are royal sycophants? Stuff left behind. David Beckham is no actor. Donald or Duke? Cyclist should be banned from the […]


“Which way do you vote?” The sales manager at work asked me that question in the middle of a crowded office today. Britain’s next general election is only weeks away, I suppose he was curious. I told him it depends because I don’t have a brand loyalty. I approach voting the same way as I […]
