PCC responds to Mac swastika cartoon

You might remember the recent court case in which a gay couple won their discrimination case against the hotel owners who turned them away because they were gay.

An unhealthy obsession

The Daily Mail seems obsessed with Suri Cruise.

In memory of Bill Hicks

The world is like a ride in an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it’s very brightly coloured and it’s very loud and […]

Apparently, stopping people using peat would be the equivalent of taking 330,000 cars off the road. Leave aside the fact […]

In it he argued that introducing proportional representation would actually be an ‘unfair, undemocratic, […]

Too many brown faces in Question Time audience, says Littlejohn

Appropriately, Richard Littlejohn’s last appearance on BBC’s Question Time came on the first of April 2010. It was in Stevenage and Richard Littlejohn looks back on this appearance in his column today – a column that calls for Question Time to be scrapped and ‘put out of its misery’. Why exactly does he want the […]
