Anarchy’s Become Another Word For “Have You Got A Vote To Spare?”

It sure feels like that right now amongst a noticeable chunk of the current UK ‘anarcho’-punk scene. I’ve been quite stunned by the number of ‘anarcho’-punks shilling for Oh Jeremy Corbyn and the treacherous Labour party. They seem to have forgotten what it’s all about.

I’ve always been shit at being governed, and I’m too long in the tooth to start now. A hundred years ago anarchists went through a lot worse, yet still pissed on the idea that voting for government was a reasonable thing for the working class […]

Eton? Rifle!

Apparently, there’s a bit of an internets fuss going on about a privileged, Eton-educated, little rich kid ‘musician’ called Frank Turner, who’s been ‘outed’ as a scummy right-wing libertarian who thinks that the BNP are hard left and socialism is dangerous.

I came across him a while back after he appeared to be matey with musicians on ‘the left’ who I’ve got a lot of time for. I didn’t particularly rate what I heard, thought his lyrics were weak and his background decidedly dodgy. Then I read a couple of […]

Nuts To The Cuts!

The Best Cut

Click for larger printable version

It’s simple. The ongoing and proposed cuts in public services, including education, are nothing but class war. The Tories want everything in private hands, so that they and their capitalist string-pullers can bleed as much as they possibly can from us. The LibDems are happy to collaborate with their dirty work, such is their desperation for a sniff of power. And if they were back […]

We STILL Fuckin’ Hate Thatcher!

Broadcaster: BBC Radio 4 Programme: In Living Memory Broadcast date: 12.03.08 Size: 47.3mb

Oh how joyous it was to hear news last week that the old bag was taken ill. Sadly, she seems to have recovered, but it can’t be too long now surely? Apparently, she also has problems with her memory these days. Well, rest assured, I will NEVER forget what this hag did to me and my class. Unfortunately amnesia isn’t terminal, but I hope that she hurries up and dies in a suitably painful and lingering (but […]

Food For Thought

There was a time when my diet could’ve been classed as traditionally British. Main meals were built around the meat ‘n’ two veg approach, except for Fridays and holidays when we would have fish ‘n’ chips. Milk was drunk by the pint (and from proper glass bottles too!) and eggs found their way onto nearly every plate of food in some guise or another. I was even a fan of the more ‘exotic’ bits of dead animals – I used to watch my Uncle George make brawn from fresh pig’s […]

Hard To Stomach

Masterfoods, the company behind brands such as Mars Bars, Twix and Bounty, have been using rennet from calf stomach in many of their popular chocolate and ice cream products since May 1st (at least in the UK anyway). Many vegetarians eat their products but may not be aware of this change, as Masterfoods don’t seem particularly eager to publicise it.

As a vegan, this doesn’t particularly bother me. What does irk me big time is the fact that the company, in their statement, think that ‘less strict’ vegetarians won’t have […]

If The Kids Are United

Happy International Workers Day. In 1887, five anarchists were murdered by the American state for nothing more than helping workers to organise. Today marks the day when we celebrate their struggle. Their deaths will never be forgotten and remind us why we must never forgive. In the words of August Spies, one of the martyrs:

The time will come when our silence will be more powerful than the voices you strangle today.

So relax, fiddle your time sheet, skive, slack, phone in sick, throw a spanner in the works, stand […]
