  • PostSecret

    I found this site via the lovely Boing Boing. People post in their secrets on one side of a postcard and PostSecret puts them on the net. Have a look. I’m sure that seeing you’re just as weird and lonely as every other human will cheer you up. It worked for me.

  • Iraq War Illegal Says Leaked Dossier

    The Iraq war was thrust dramatically into the election spotlight last night after long-sought government legal advice, cautioning that the invasion could be illegal, was leaked. The document appears to confirm for the first time that the Attorney General, Lord Goldsmith, had serious reservations about the legality of the conflict, only to change his mind…

  • Richard Dawkins: Vote Blair Out!

    Reginald Keys Blair deceived Parliament into backing an illegal war. Blair flouted our constitutional tradition of collective cabinet responsibility. Blair crawled to the most ill-qualified American President in living memory. Bush constantly makes political capital out of Blair’s support for him. A vote for Blair is a vote for Bush. What a splendid signal the…

  • FLASH IS SHITE!

    A trendy web designer earlier today. Cunt. ARGGHHHHHHH! What is it with trendy bastard web designers? I’ve just spent 10 minutes trying to find gig listings at a venue. To do this, I had to chase some “cool” Flash graphics round a screen, attempting to click on them while they jerkily fluttered around. Then, when…

  • British Museum

    Some snaps I took inside the British Museum when I was last in London. If you haven’t been, you’re missing out. It’s a wonderful, thrilling building, packed full of fascinating exhibits. And it’s a part of history in its own right: top moment for me was standing in the reading room where Karl Marx studied:…

  • Asian Tories = Jewish Nazis

    I’m watching the news. There’s just been a Tory candidate for Cardiff on. And he was Indian. How fucking stupid can someone be? Being an Asian Tory makes exactly as much sense as a Jew joining the BNP. The Tory party is the most racist major party in Britain. Apart from Howard’s Enoch-like race-baiting in…

  • Tories Use Cheap Migrant Workers

    Eastern European migrants allegedly earning less than the legal minimum wage are delivering Conservative Party leaflets in a key marginal constituency. Despite conducting a high-profile campaign calling for tough controls on immigration, the Tories are using a company employing low-paid foreigners to distribute campaign literature. (Source: The Independent) You know, I’m not even surprised by…

  • Never Forget

    Hundreds of survivors of the Nazi concentration camps Bergen-Belsen, Ravensbrück and Sachsenhausen have marked the 60th anniversary of their liberation by Allied forces with ceremonies across Germany. At Belsen yesterday, where an estimated 70,000 people died, mostly Jewish, ceremonies were held after more than 150 former inmates marked the camp’s liberation on Friday. (Source: The…

  • Labour Official Resigns Over Iraq

    Rose Gentle, left and Reg Keys. Both lost children because of Blair’s lies. A senior Labour figure in Tony Blair’s constituency has resigned to support an independent candidate.

  • US Smuggled GM-Corn Into Europe

    All imports of United States corn have been stopped at British ports following the discovery that the US has been illegally exporting a banned GM maize to Europe for the past four years. The unprecedented move, which has angered the Bush administration, follows efforts to hush up and play down the scandal on both sides…

  • Positronically Yours

    “Robot controllers double in complexity (processing power) every year or two. They are now barely at the lower range of vertebrate complexity, but should catch up with us within a half-century. By 2050 I predict that there will be robots with humanlike mental power, with the ability to abstract and generalise. “These intelligent machines will…

  • UNHCR Benefit CD

    I don’t normally plug anything to do with my music on Bzangy but as this is a benefit CD: The day has come. For all of you who will be performing or know people in New york or on the East Coast who would like to attend the “Voyces United For UNHCR” cd release send…

  • Tory Posterbusting

    There’s more Tory-bashing at Andy Pryke’s blogsite.

  • Iraqi Children Worse Off

    A report to the UN human rights commission in Geneva has concluded that Iraqi children were actually better off under Saddam Hussein than they are now. This, of course, comes as a bitter blow for all those of us who, like George Bush and Tony Blair, honestly believe that children thrive best when we drop…

  • Mendacious Tory Gits

    Left, the original, right top Tory Photoshopping The Conservative leader, Michael Howard, today refused to sack a Tory candidate in a key marginal seat who doctored an election campaign photograph. Mr Howard was forced to publicly condemn the Dorset South Tory candidate, Ed Matts, after it was revealed he had altered a photograph in order…

  • Goodbye Andrea Dworkin

    The drive of Ms Dworkin’s writing and activism was to break the silence around violence against women, but her wider career saw her become a figure of adulation and loathing in equal measure. To opponents she was an archetypal man-hater, killjoy and proponent of censorship, but supporters rallied to her impassioned lectures and books. Gloria…

  • Iraqis Stage Anti-US Protest

    Insurgents have killed 15 Iraqi soldiers travelling in a convoy south of Baghdad, police and officials say. The attack happened near the town of Latifiya, in a lawless area known as the “triangle of death”. The violence came on the second anniversary of the fall of Baghdad to the US-led coalition. Tens of thousands of…

  • Delgados Split

    The Delgados, influential figures in Glasgow’s independent music scene for over 10 years, have announced that they are to amicably disband.
