Heading For The Corner Flag

quora.com Which would be a great name for a football blog. I once saw a Bristol City game at Ashton Gate in League One and a City player headed to the corner flag with maybe 87 minutes on the clock. I exhaled loudly and my friend scoffed at the side’s lack of a moral backbone…

An onslaught of knowledge and logic from Kshama Sawant (2016)

This was one of the highlights from the political primaries in the USA last year, along with a similar humdinger between Chris Hedges and Robert Reich. Kshama Sawant comes in with her verbal machine gun, unerringly on target, yet Rebecca Traister shows great fortitude in holding her ground. Faced with this overpowering screed, while having to…

‘Stretched out’ mixes

On Ossoff Being Told To Get Off

If a centrist Democrat wins = See? We Democrats need to be centrist. If a centrist Democrat loses = See? The candidate wasn’t centrist *enough*; stop it with your counter-productive purism. ‘Elections are won from the middle ground’. Did Trump run from the middle? Did the Bush/Cheney crime syndicate? Did Richard Nixon? Did Ronald “Mad…

First day blues for the reds

Fixtures day for the Football League. It’s exciting for many, and it is cool to picture when you’ll be playing certain sides, but after the initial rush, it’s just a horrible reminder that summer will end one day and cold will return. I’d rather forestall that idea for a long as possible, yet here I…
