The Editor doesn’t moderate this blog,  3 volunteers do, they are very lenient to provide you a free speech space but if it’s just deranged abuse or putting words in bloggers mouths to have a pointless argument, we don’t bother publishing.

EDITORS NOTE: – By the way, here’s a list of shit that will get your comment dumped. Sexist language, homophobic language, racist language, anti-muslim hate, transphobic language, Chemtrails, 9/11 truthers, Qanon lunacy, climate deniers, anti-fluoride fanatics, anti-vaxxer lunatics, 5G conspiracy theories, the virus is a bioweapon, some weird bullshit about the UN taking over the world  and ANYONE that links to fucking infowar.


    • She writes well.
      But this is poor journalism.
      Let women speak.
      A sexist joke places no restrictions on free speech and helps one form your own opinion. Therefore, it is a public good.

      This was not journalism is was a sermon and belonged in a pulpit.

  1. I’m just watching a rerun of Parks and Recreation. What do jokey accountants say when they leave a meeting: ‘Calc-ulator’.

    Ah hah.
    Where is dear Julian Assange? Why is he being tortured?

  3. ‘‘Fast Car, that other great track off Chapman’s 1988 album, powerfully anticipates this magical politics. The song’s protagonists are fleeing an unbearable reality for a make-believe future they’ll never reach. Rather than confront the injustice that has stranded them in America’s nightmare, they drive on through the city’s bright lights towards America’s dream, America’s mirage. A revolution that cannot outlive their fast car’s empty gas-tank’’.

    We should have known from Chapman’s opening lines. Revolution never sounds like a whisper!

  4. Two comments disallowed in a day. This is a Left + anti-woke space. Shoulda known, I’m just Left. But you’re free speech?

    I have an argument with ‘anti-woke’. Must be a great comfort to you that Lprent won’t have a bar of me. In his favour, he has actually called me ‘insane’. I prefer that.

    Is there a space where the non-anti-woke Left can talk? Cos it’s very arguable the two don’t go together. At least not to this level.
