On Friday I went to the Grand National at Aintree with a few mates, before then going out into Liverpool. Although I didn't expect this to be a day full of material for a 'politically themed' blog, the day itself had two points of interest amongst the miracle of being £65 up after the races. The … Continue reading What do you call a well balanced horse? Stable.
I have a holiday job at a fuel garage where I mainly work on the tills, clean the forecourt and stock the shelves. Part of my job is also focused on getting to work at 5:30am in order to put the newspapers out. I was therefore not surprised to see the headline and picture combo … Continue reading The Daily Mail.

The bus soon filled up and a few stops before head street (the top of the … Continue reading What “bus” crossed the ocean? Columbus.
A subject which has angered me to such a degree, I include it in this sentence with Donald Trump, ISIS and Piers Morgan.

Two years of highs and lows, seats and standing, … Continue reading It was my friends dream to be run over by a steam train. When it happened he was chuffed to bits.
