Vote for the kids!

When you hold that ballet paper in your hand, stop and think, not about yourself, but about our kids.

Vote for the kids

We should all vote if we can, but it’s time to stop voting for our own selfish reasons and spurious loyalties, and instead to vote for the benefit of the country, it’s people and particularly, the young people. Because quite simply, our future is invested in them.

We need an Alien Invasion

We’re all at each other’s throats and even Mother Earth’s under threat too. Only the Aliens can save us now, kinda. Do your worst ET. I beg you!

We need an alien invasion

The last time we had a World War – that would be number II – we lost an estimated 80 million people, including around 50 million civilians, most of those on the ‘Good’ side. To put that into perspective the entire population of the country that I live in at the moment, the UAE, is less than 10 million.

Write him off if you must, but don’t ignore him

How is it we live in a world where all the political pundits tell us that a man who speaks of a just, fair, peaceful and hopeful future for us and our young has no chance of winning an election, whilst an out-of-touch, flighty, egomaniac focussed solely on strengthening her own power base (like her counterpart across the Atlantic) – to the obvious detriment of what we used to understand democracy to be – is a sure bet?

An old video sure, but please listen to this speech and then ponder that this is not a man that talks about conceited and contrived ‘strong and stable’ politics.
