I haven't looked, but I'm curious as to whether the secret Tory dossier contains the line...

"Cameron, D - pig"

pretty much all of it is minor on a one-to-one basis and perfectly survivable politically if some of the shit this lot have gotten away with

Its almost like the Tory High Command is preparing for a purge of those not considered pure enough.  For how long have they been gathering grievances, ready to destroy anyone who steps out of line.

Get ready for the "Corbyn told me I looked nice once. The Labour party must be burned to the ground" response from blairites.

Listen...do you hear that?  It's the sound of a self blowing trumpet...

For the last few months, I've been writing reviews and articles for the Canadian based review site Comicsthegathering.com. ( @Comicsthegather on twitter). They have a bunch of reviewers for a range of comics, but I'm fighting the good fight in spreading the House of Tharg.

There are weekly 2000ad and monthly Megazine reviews, as well as a whole host of other Rebellion related publications several weeks before release.  There will be a burst of Halloween related reviews in the next few days.

I'm sick of the BBC and their pro Bradley Walsh agenda.  Bradley Walsh can do whatever he likes in the privacy of his own home, but this is clearly an attempt to brainwash children into being inoffensive day time TV presenters.

Was supposed to be moving house yesterday, but thanks to a solicitor hiding problems and only revealing them at the last minute, I am now without a house until at least Monday.  If not for family and the kindness of people I barely know, I'd be sleeping in my car.

Lobster, on Netflix. A dark comedy about a world where, if you don't find your true love within a set period of time, you get trans formed into an animal of your choosing...or have to run of and live in the woods where people will hunt you.  A charming tale of societal expectations.

Couple of hours to burn...hmmm, this looks interesting.  Oh, its got Colin Farrell in it.  Oh, and whatshisface...Ben Wishaw.  This is a bit weird.  Aaah, I get it now.  Olivia Coleman as well.  And John C Reilly.  That's quite a collection.  Umm..this is a bit strange.  Oh, its....no, it can't be a...OH, SWEET JESUS, THEBLOOD, THE BLOOD, THIS IS HORRIBLE.  THE POOR DOG!...

There's not much by way of violence and no gore, but it has the right amount of frights and morbid laughs that kids tend to love.  The cold war politics might need a bit of explaining, though - lots of mentions of the iron curtain and the KGB.

utterly self-serving and occasionally self-defeating when it reveals its pure contempt for all entities other than itself. 

Yes, but you're regarding those as negatives.  In this post brexit vision of the future, society is only dragged forward as a side effect of the selfish actions of special individuals.  Compassion and concern for any less fortunate (or rather, less determined and hardworking) members of society is Marxism.

Its obviously a very complex situation.  I mean, what if the King of England comes back and tries to get them to pay taxes?  Besides, some gun enthusiasts really want access to a device designed to kill large numbers of people in a short timescale, and who are we to take away their freedoms?  Extend those freedoms, I say.  If legislation intended to provide access to front loading muskets also applies to assault rifles, why shouldn't it apply to weaponized anthrax or surface to air missiles?

Spent the morning waiting for the Scottish Gas engineer who will definitely be here before 1:00, since its an emergency.  Now been told that the whole company only has one engineer for the whole of central Scotland, who is too busy, but will definitely be here before 5:00.    Screw you, Scottish Gas.

A quick message for the quiet heroes of comic book production...

Easy.  Don't see what the big deal is.

Hello!  Welcome!  Come on in.  How are you?  Did you come far?  Cup of tea?  There are some bourbons in the cupboard, I think. Please, take a seat. 

How familiar is that response?  Who else is willing to admit to having been on the receiving end?

I love that Tormund is completely oblivious to the disgust there.  He's just happy there's a big, sexy lady in his warband.

Its not quite politics, but also really is, so I just wanted to share Matt Lees' short talk on video games and  culture, and how angry extremist form in purpose build echo chambers of video games and social media.

Well, you can prove anything with "facts".  What really matters is how people feel, and who they can blame for their life not working out the way it should.  You won't find many leave voters who will happily admit to being wrong, because most of the movement was founded in irrationality.  It purposefully ignored evidence and openly told lies, creating a shallow pretense at logic which allowed people to pretend that their deep seated grievances and fears were justified, whilst being so vacuous as to but impossible to debate.
