Bregret?

For another post about brexit, I actually wanted to start with yesterday’s events of the publishing of the very long overdue Chilcott inquiry. For those praising the outcome, allow me to be extremely critical of the time and expense taken to publish a report that confirmed what many people thought years ago. That said though, …

We are here

Sometimes you have moments where you shiver, involuntarily, at thoughts of episodes so horrible they are unimaginable. The Battle of the Somme, where more than one million soldiers on all sides of the battle died. This year, for the anniversary of the battle, volunteers dressed as World War I soldiers appeared across the UK on …

Into the abyss

Someone needs to press the reset button on Brexsh1t and fast. Today‚Äôs bad news brought you multiple downgrades from credit rating agencies, making it more expensive to borrow money. The pound and shares in key companies (airlines, house builders and banks) declined precipitously. The FTSE 250 (which better reflects the UK economy than the FTSE …

Brexsh1t

Apologies for the title, but I’m angry because my country has been stolen by liars. It feels like there has been a coup. There are no tanks on the streets, but the prime minster has resigned because he tried to campaign on facts and was defeated by bare faced lies told by liars. I’ve seen …

For the last few years the poisonous media narrative has been about corrupt MPs only out for themselves, …

Sometimes in the rain…

Things go wrong. Sometimes you pound the streets all day looking for a story to tell. Other times you’ve been trapped by a deluge near your usual sandwich shop and a story presents itself. As I watched people running through the deluge I saw these guys approaching with copies of the local evening newspaper. I …

The Pasty Strikes Back

Pentewan I’ve not been posting for a while, mostly because I’ve been on holiday and away on and off the last few weeks. We headed back to Cornwall for a week away in April and as ever it was welcome. This time we stayed in the lovely village of Pentewan, nr to St Austell and …

Double Pro? Thoughts on the Fujifilm X-Pro2

As a follow up to my previous post on this topic, it was time to publish a full review/impressions piece on the X-Pro2. To summarise: (i) it’s really, really good; but (ii) not everyone will agree with (i). I’ll be honest about the negatives but to be clear, for me, this camera makes them irrelevant. …
