A Scrap From The Deep Fat Fryer That is My Brain

A scrap from the deep fat fryer that is my brain.    My memory is absolutely rubbish. I struggle to remember anything wordy, which is a real pain for somebody who absolutely loves to sing in the shower. I suspect that I have never sung a lyric entirely correctly in my life. Friends will quote films, films that I’ve seen a half dozen times, and I’ll barely catch on, let alone be able to c...

Dominic Cummings and the Campaign for Justice

The near week long campaign for justice witnessed in our newspapers and across social media is no longer just about the idea that Dominic Cummings may have ignored, stretched or reinterpreted the government’s lockdown rules. It never really was.   Whether or not Dominic Cummings broke lockdown or should have resigned is a matter of opinion. The confirmation by Durham Police that he may ...

Would you pay $800 for a degree?

Would you pay $800 for a degree?

A 3-year undergraduate course for a UK university costs £9,25o. So for just shy of £30k you can walk away with that diploma paper and a big smile on your face.  Now, as I am one of those who has “invested” in myself, one of my classmates and I thought let’s take a look at how our diploma will look like.

It’s Time to Stop Policing Women in Pop

It’s Time to Stop Policing Women in Pop

The #MeToo Movement was revolutionary for women across the world but female artists within the pop music industry are still put under more pressure than their male counterparts. Could this be due to patriarchy and capitalism? It’s time the problem was acknowledged, and something was done about it. Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson and Madonna are some of the women who have influenced society wi...

The girl with the silver hair: BLEACH London’s Kornelija Cecetaite.

Kornelija Cecetaite is sat on her bed in her family home eating a yoghurt whilst we sit on opposite sides of the country for our conversation over FaceTime.
