If you’re Paying for an Internship, You’re Probably Not Worth Employing

January 10, 2012

There is, quite rightly, a growing campaign against the proliferation of unpaid internships. When employers know that they can get grunt-level employees to work for them, for free, almost indefinitely, it is hardly surprising that a lot of them are firing paid staff and replacing them with a rotating selection of young hopefuls. This is […]

Perverts in the Fashion Industry and Cannabis Law Reform

January 4, 2012

There is currently something of a storm erupting in the cannabis law reform community. Peter Reynolds, the leader of Clear, the cannabis law reform party, is known publishing right wing and controversial opinions on his personal blog, and somewhat more dubiously, on his Facebook profile which he uses for both personal and public commentary. Fair […]

Are There are More Interesting Statistics Than Medical Marijuana?

November 7, 2011

Many cannabis campaigners like to throw around the fact that 15 out of 50 states have medical marijuana laws. However, as a friend pointed out to me, “To me, that simply means that 35 American states don’t have medical marijuana.” It’s not, on the face of it, an incredible statistic except to people who genuinely […]

Free Market Capitalists and Anarchism – a Short Play

October 17, 2011

Capitalism is a system where one person acquires all the equipment to make things, gets someone to make something, and sells it on their behalf, giving the original creator either a cut of the profit or by paying them a regular wage to make things for them. If you can’t spot the unfairness of that […]

Why I’m not in Tahrir, I mean, Albert Square

October 5, 2011

There is a peculiar trend within the activist community that all occupations, all protests, and all protesters must be defended at whatever cost from the tyranny of the state. That’s a fair enough stance to take, though I think given our manpower compared to that of the state, that’s too optimistic for me to agree […]

How to Deal with Friends and Folks Who Just Mess You Up

August 8, 2011

A lot of people spend time thinking about their partners and how to make their relationships work out and get better, but I wonder how many of us really put as much thought and effort into our friendships? I don’t think it is any secret to those of you reading this who know me personally […]

Spot the difference: the West Bank and the White House

May 2, 2011

This is footage of people in the West Bank celebrating the 9/11 attacks in 2001. Both the celebrations and the attacks themselves were condemned by pretty much everyone, including Palestine’s leaders. There’s a rumour that this was footage from 1991 celebrating the Gulf War, it wasn’t and Snopes has more if you’re interested. Now, this […]

On Aaron Porter and those anti-semitic comments

January 31, 2011

So, 4000 people marched in Manchester on Saturday against the cuts to education with the TUC, the NUS, EAN, NCAF, Manchester Against Cuts and Fees, and I’m sure a whole bunch of other organisations as well that felt like telling people to go march on the 29th of January. Instead of covering that, or the […]
