“Glorious, yet devastating, piece of writing” — Steven Topple. With a cult following in Estonia(!), this story is a grim portrait of Cameron’s Britain which is still tragically current in Boris’ Britain. Not for the faint of heart.

Birmingham last week.

Out to dinner with “respectable” professor of economy.

Talking about social historical philosophical and economic issues spanning all human history.

Lavish restaurant. Endless courses and fucking pompous cocktails with half a mango in them, exotic erotic names and little umbrellas. This is rococo France all over again. Champagne, candles and…


It was a tight pod with stale air and many nooks and crannies. All she saw around her was Kevlar and thermal glass. Something was off. Confined in a capsule twenty times her size, she felt queasy. And her body… what even was it? She spent long staring at her…


The 2020 pandemic has been a good time for me to cash in on my immigrant privilege— like the fact I can escape this island to lie around in the sun in a country with less Covid victims, and less crap food.

Or so I thought. But in fact, despite…


Very odd timing for the Immigration Bill to pass through Parliament today 18th of May. At the time of writing this there is no news regarding its fate. But here is what it has in store:

“The government announced proposals for the new system, suggesting points will be awarded for…


A well known medical researcher and biophysicist answers questions related to efficiency of Vitamin C in the prevention and treatment of Coronavirus as currently employed by the Chinese to successfully control its spread. This article has been translated from a Romanian site by Mara Leverkuhn, a Romanian writer living in…


Let’s talk about the Yazidis — a fascinating sect of people that are currently being slaughtered, raped and pushed into extinction by ISIS in the Middle East (mostly Syria).

Perceived as Satan worshippers, they are subject to religious hatred. And the odd thing is, that’s quite correct.

Their religion is very old and predates the other monotheistic abrahamic religions in the area. They present a primordial version of the first testament that shows a completely different Origin Myth–one that…


Art not meant to sell or soothe, but piss on normalcy.

My two or three followers (a wildly optimistic guess) would be very surprised to hear I in fact also paint. Of course by surprised I mean bored.

But I do. I don’t sell my painting because contemporary art is a farce. I once grazed by the art world and it turned me down, which caused me great sadness. Only later with my political enlightenment I realised the art world, like other worlds, did me a great favor…


A TALK FROM ORGCON 2017 with David Levy — Labour Friends of ORG, and Richard Barbook — academic and Labour digital guru, author of Labour’s digital manifesto.

I lived the first years of my life under a very brutal dictatorship. People would disappear for criticising the state.

There was a limit to the state’s power and that was technology. It was simply too expensive to spy on everybody, all the time.

Ceausescu could have only dreamed of…


The most extraordinary thing happened today. I received a rug from a pal, and a song triggered something deep and peaceful inside. It’s my Madeleine moment, I traveled in time.

You see, I live with a flatmate. It’s a long story. I don’t always beat men with a stick at home but when I do, the flatmate needs to know. So it’s hard to find a flatmate who doesn’t look down their nose at a part time domme. …


LABOUR CONFERENCE, BRIGHTON

This past week, like acid house in 1991, Corbynism officially graduated from niche, local parties to nationwide fever. Jeremy’s new politics of kindness went mainstream this conference in Brighton, and the thousands of us on this pilgrim journey to the sunny side of Britain witnessed first hand the triumphant, confident shift in British politics. It’s been long awaited.

The mood shift was apparent, not just in the polished and comprehensive leader’s speech (do I detect Owen Jones’ writing style in there? The vocabulary was definitely shared by the left of Labour throughout the fringe events). Of course, the mood was effervescent among the cool Momentum crowd and the…

Heretic omega transhumanist. Everything is politics.
