Maybe I'm just perpetually uninspired for the remaining 364 days of the year. I guess you're always meant to say something at this time of year - Merry Christmas and a happy new year.… Continue reading Love/Hate

'I am proud to be British' they announce. As if Britishness had become a foreign concept- as if it something elitist to say 'I am British'. What does that even mean? To me it's just a nationality, written on a passport, attempting to define me. It really doesn't. The raucous claims of Britishness, the people behind… Continue reading Rule, Britannia?
