• Commented on The gathering crisis
    "The Labour Party is probably correct in their assessment that struggling working class voters who are fed up of the Tories have nowhere else to go in large numbers." Unfortunately, they do - specifically, nowhere. They stay at home because...
  • Commented on A serious question
    Traditionally, one talks about a curse on the werewolf, not on the moon, so it seems reasonable that the activation of the "curse" is signalled psychologically rather than postulating a method of action from the imprecisely defined "full moon light"...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
