What should be done with the rioters now?
As news emerges from the courts, it seems that although many people are not being granted bail, lots of individuals - mainly children, are being fined for their parts in the violent disturbances that have wracked our nation - the average amount seems to be £200. I don’t ascribe to the ‘throw them all in jail for a lengthy period’ view. Not because it is undeserved, but because...

Lower income families in recent years have had free school meals, help with uniforms, trips, transport, child benefit, working family tax credit, housing benefit, job seekers’ allowance..the list goes on. Society has evolved as a result of Britiain’s technological evolution, heavy...
More thoughts on our social situation

Pls spend 30 secs to add your name to this official petition if you think Murdoch should be prohibited from wielding even more power @ BSkyB - he can’t handle what he currently has : his journalists think it’s acceptable to vicariously hack into dead girls’ phones..
Angel Dusting →
bestofwikipedia: Angel dusting is the misleading marketing practice of including a minuscule amount of an active ingredient in a cosmetic, cosmeceutical, dietary supplement, food product, or nutraceutical, insufficient to cause any measurable benefit. However, no claim is made that the product contains enough of the active ingredient to have an effect—this is just assumed by the purchaser. Thus,...

walkwhilereading: The fucking blues. The weight of them on my shoulders get’s really hard to carry around. Happiness is a fraud I understand that. You can be happy this is true, but happiness as eternal, not possible. The blues are bullshit too. The way they permeate the soul. Feasting on your existence and your…

You’re the core of the sun You breathe your fire And cold becomes warm And everything that was Dull, lifeless and grey Becomes vibrant Colours so rich and bright They hurt my eyes I don’t understand How you can allow yourself To become so diluted A shadow, not a person A song without lyrics She turns your technicolour, sepia It breaks my heart.
