It’s Not Just Trump, It’s America.

America is a gold mine for analysis and in the wake of Trump’s (or as some of my followers have called him -‘Cheetos Man’) successful campaign more and more people are becoming self-proclaimed Noam Chomskys. National and global media keeps echoing the sounds of his administration and we keep getting triggered by his blatant attacks…

Understanding Migration: Definitions, Debates and Common Mistakes

Migration is a profound aspect of the world’s history and it influences virtually all societies, individuals, and cultures on a daily basis. In the modern day the debate of migration has become increasingly controversial and has led to the resurgence of fundamentally extremist and nationalist views. There are a multitude of examples such as Donald Trump…

Then and Now: Revisiting Brexit

In my previous Brexit post (please click here to view the post) I found myself in a position where I was annoyed and politically frustrated, much like the other 48% of the British electorate. We had all witnessed a drastic shift in the direction of British politics and it was intimidating for a lot of people. Although…

UAV – The Assassination of International Law

This post is more serious than some of the stuff I have produced in the past year as it covers the matter of state sanctioned murder and how we as a society accept it openly, neglecting to think of its social and political ramifications. The use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in combat is one…

Latest Study Confirms that We’re All Royally F****d.

A study was carried out yesterday at the University of Armageddon (UA) by Lucifer himself. It premised that ‘the world is majorly f****d’. Their research focused specifically on the US presidential election results. After Trump’s acceptance speech yesterday the study claimed that: “4 in 5 people are likely to experience  moments of extreme fear and anxiety…

Top Scotch: Lagavulin AKA BBQ In a Glass.

The reason I spent close to £50 on this bottle of 16 year old single malt is simple – Parks and Recreation. That’s right, a TV show made me spend a substantial amount of dough on, let’s face it, an easily consumed item. Why I hear you metaphorically ask? Well I wanted to OK!?!?!?! One…

John Carpenter’s “They Live”.

LUKE’S LADLE RATING: 5/5 A full ladle indeed. A well deserved perfect rating for an underrated masterpiece. Carpenter really outdid himself in this cult classic and it is the opinion of this author that it is the best film of his career. SUMMARY: I wrote ‘A Viewers Guide to: “A Pervert’s Guide to Ideology”and “They…

Current Affairs: Brexit, the Fall and Fall of a Generation

The following post is my response to the referendum, it is quite dense and also opinionated. I appreciate any responses and want it stated that, although I take a strong position, I do not wish ill to any person who reads this, regardless of their political views. The current young generation of Britain has had…

Current Affairs: Jo Cox Tribute

I felt it necessary as a student of politics and as a blogger of current events to express my anguish over what happened to Jo Cox and her family in Yorkshire earlier today. To think that such an atrocity happened within the UK is symbolic of how unstable we are becoming. Whether you are in favour…

Current Affairs: Britain – the Unelected Dictatorship.

In the UK there is a certain grandeur regarding our parliamentary system. It has been our way of governing for centuries and is perceived as a representative or ‘just’ political practice. But why do we think this? Is it because we have delved into the matter and as a result come to this conclusion? Or do…

Current Affairs: Pizza Thief or Mass Murderer?

For a millennia political philosophers, such as Plato, have pondered over the concept of legal justice. Plato’s Crito perfectly encapsulates the principles of political gratitude. The outcome of which suggests  that we owe a debt to the states into which we are born simply because we were born into them. In the current day the western…
