Mega clusterfuck of historic proportion


The year of the water tiger

31 December 2021

This year was a bit of a bovine one. Not a great year. Brexit is going badly, as expected. I spent my second birthday in lockdown, and something tells me next year will be my third. We did three vaccines for COVID-19, and it looks like wèll be doing more....


The fifth circle of Hell

01 February 2021

Yesterday was the anniversary of our arrival in London: six years have passed. Compared to last year, it has not changed so much, apart from the pandemic. The thing that has really changed is that Brexit has become a reality: this is going so well, that Ben Fletcher, the policy...

Scaringly actual

10 January 2019
