I promised a blog on the current state of the Labour party and like a angry three armed postman, I will furiously deliver. I am a member of the Labour Party. I am also a member of the Essex Student Labour society, my local party back home and was a youth delegate for the conference … Continue reading “Now is not the time for sound-bites. I can feel the hand of history on my shoulder” Tony Blair
Apologies for the delay in my latest blog, it has been a mad few weeks. I am currently sitting on a train going home for the end of the week before then staying in London for the weekend. It has been a pretty special few weeks. Last weekend I was in Paris with my girlfriend … Continue reading Why do French People eat snails? Because they don’t like fast food.
When catching the number 61 into Colchester town yesterday I sat near the back partly as I would be on there for a good 25 minutes, but also to listen to music on my own after a morning lecture. The bus soon filled up and a few stops before head street (the top of the … Continue reading What “bus” crossed the ocean? Columbus.
The Stoke-on-Trent by-election has gifted UKIP another opportunity to peddle the lie that they are in some way representing the interest of the British working class.

They should both be changed regularly and for the same reason.
So I've been saving this for a rainy day. I haven't addressed the recent activity of Donald Trump and the subsequent reaction as I wanted to see how far things were going to go. Now however it feels right to comment on the news of Trumps travel ban as well as the demonstrations in America … Continue reading What airline does Donald Trump aspire to fly? Hair Force One!
A subject which has angered me to such a degree, I include it in this sentence with Donald Trump, ISIS and Piers Morgan. Being in my second year at university I feel I now have two years of experience when it comes to the UK's train system. 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.

My opinion on banking as a profession has clearly been influenced with my experiences, not just from the recession … Continue reading Bankers never die. They just lose interest.
Okay so granted this is probably my worst joke so far but there is something magical in its level of rubbish. Talking about rubbish, this blog is focused on the recent news that Ireland has just passed laws to become the world's first country to fully divest from fossil fuels. The Irish Parliament passed the … Continue reading What do lumberjacks eat in the forest? Mac and trees.
So to clarify, the wall is being built, the choice and health of women is under threat, America and Britain are still mates but Russia is the secret crush. Trump has already played his part in this metaphorical relationship, but will a break up be imminent? Todays meeting between Donald Trump and Theresa May was … Continue reading Trump is Putin his foot in it.
I'm so proud of this joke, just saying. Don't fear there is also a point to this title, the opening week of Donald Trumps presidency. I was going to have to address it as some point so why not in his first week as president of the united states. I have never been a fan … Continue reading Why are most politicians either in the closet or gay? Because they can only mandate.
