This has to come at some point, but how do we do it safely? It seems the two massive risk factors are: school and mass gatherings. Now, I don’t particularly think school itself is the risk… the ...


But if you want to buy this, it’ll be immense: ASTRID Last call before the Scottish Singles Chart are announced tomorrow🤞 A massive thank you to everyone who has bought the single so far 🙏 A litt...


I mean obviously: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8OyBtMPqpNY Because heck, it’s just so damn happy… and to be honest, whilst there’s been a lot of hand wringing from people I’d previously conside...

If I ruled.... in The Manifesto

I have to say, if I was the chancellor right now, I’d be following a very similar course. All I see are self employed people moaning about how they are getting no help....well it’s coming, so sh...


The bastard cat is meowing at the top of her voice - I get up and check her food and water and discover the reason she is objecting so loudly is that AgentX is in the kitchen making himself a sna...


Bennet’s catchy pop tune “mum has gone to Iceland” may be a historic lament if the ASA’s new rules kick in… The Advertising Standards Authority will no longer allow sexual stereotypes in advertis...


Annoyingly I keep on reading about how the local elections today “Will be a kick in the teeth for Lavbour/Tories/Greens”. Actually it’s not about that - that’s not what you should be voting for...

Trump in The Manifesto

As much as I hate Trump I have a grudging respect for just how much he’s achieved in his first week of being president. I don’t think anyone else has been quite so productive, ever. Sure - I do...


Indie just told me that Ash’s debut album 1977 is 20 years old this week.... what?????? And then I thought about the year it came out and how much I played it until the tape went all wonky and...

safety pin in The Manifesto

There is a post brexit campaign to wear a safety pin to show solidarity with immigrants already here. It started off as being a way of showing your support for immigration before the vote, and ha...


Okay - let’s assume that all cost efficiencies and nonsense like MPs claiming spurious expenses have been cut… You need to find more savings in the budget and the only thing to cut are frontline ...

Social mobility in The Manifesto

(Inspired by JustC’s post!) Where you have social mobility, you have booms. Look at Labour in 97, they got people behind them because they were prepared to change stuff. To improve the life of ...

a few more in The Manifesto

All MPs expenses must have receipts for anything over £10 (as all businesses have to do!) and they would have to file these publicly so you could see what they are claiming as a parliamentary exp...

It starts... in The Manifesto

TheMoor suggested I run for government… He’s either completely bonkers or a genius! How awesome would a world run by me be? It would be very much like Switzerland with loads of personal respons...


I really love Amy Winehouse. Here is a unique sound, an instrument which is a voice. I was watching the documentary this evening which I’d put off watching because it felt like a very scary sto...

GnR in Prosebox Desert Island Discs

I love Guns N Roses - all thru my teenage years they were the soundtrack to my life. I had a life size poster of Axl on my bedroom wall. My fish were called Axl and Duff. I had every album, ever...


So I’m not at yoga this morning - I’ve got loads of bitty bits to sort out this morning, mostly because one of VAs who does this annoying sort of stuff is on holiday… That and I’ve been really po...


Self explanatory really… The Ex: Because this is one of the albums that was out around the time we broke up, and it sums up all the mixed up stuff that went thru my poor battered brain. Plus ...


How brilliant is she? I mean obviously not the guff she comes out with now, but over the years you have to hand it to her… I love all the 80s/90s stuff.


Did you know that this summer marks 20 YEARS since Bon Jovi released These Days? They toured it round the world and played Northern Town at a scummy rundown record shop with a lunchtime appearan...


Because I've worked in the music industry, I generally have been quite spoiled in terms of the people I've seen perform. James Brown, Dylan, Cat Stevens, Oasis, Travis, Biffy Clyro, Annie Lennox...


Okay there's quite a lot of this in my life because I spent rather a lot of my teenage years misbehaving... But actually most of my musical choices for this category will be quite middle of the r...


Everyone's been leaving notes on my choices, but nobody's shared their own... Feel free to join in! Okay, so this one is the most awe inspiring rockstar... The only person ever to have left me s...


This is one I really love: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=YEyJ7tNrcbg Introduced to me by an Open Diarist and who solved the problem of what to get AgentX for his b...


Okay as much as I wanted to post this one due to many teenage years with some random dreadlocked white guy plinking it on a beaten up guitar: Somehow being quite slow it was the one which ever...
