Showcase of amazing embedded map

Look at this cool embedded map that I created using Loco2! (I am putting it here for demonstration purposes, do not be alarmed)

A writing resolution

As those of you who know me will know, I quite enjoy writing. For those of you who have known me for the past six years or longer, you will probably be bored of me talking about the fantastic idea for a play that I had in 2006 but have ...

A new politics for a new era

Check out this video of an articulate young black man explaining to Boris Johnson what he believes to be the causes of the recent London riots: I agree with everything that the man says, up until the point where he solely blames foreign spending for the lack of money to spend ...

I’ve got a fucking bag!

I recently bought the domain name ivegotafuckingbag.com. Every time I visit a shop I am massively frustrated by the fact that I am offered a bag for anything but smallest of items. Every single time I have my own bag, and I have to politely interrupt the cashier as they attempt ...

In the hours between the original release and withdrawal of 10:10's short but controversial film on Friday, there was - rather predictably - uproar from many quarters. I'll come onto my ...

UK election: a plan of action

This is what I think should happen now that we have a hung parliament: A Labour/Lib Dem coalition seems like the best solution for the country, with the understanding that there will be another election in the near future. Gordon Brown has to go. The vast majority of the electorate will be fuming if he remains ...

How CCS policy should have been designed

I've been having an interesting Twitter conversation with the UK Department for Energy and Climate Change. I say 'conversation', when what I really mean is that they replied once to point me to some documents online, and I bombarded their Twitter account with a barrage of messages. Tom Raftery also came ...

Let’s wait a bit before we save the planet
