Kate Bush did not write this episode of Doctor Who. She has never written an episode of Doctor Who, to my knowledge, but there was a long-standing rumour that she was the true author of Kinda, which was only dispelled when the real author, Christopher…

For Divorce 2, being a Yes voter in Cork did put you in a minority. I wasn't even in college at that point, so I had yet to assemble my liberal bubble around me. It really upset me to think about the people whose marriages had failed and who wanted a second chance, and how so many of the people around me felt happy denying them that second chance. Nobody seemed to realise how cruel they were being, or how badly they were treating their compatriots. But I think it would pass with 80% if it was run these days. We've changed a lot, and a big factor is that our age group are now the biggest demographic in the electorate, and we're far more socially liberal than our predecessors. I have high hopes about us repealing the 8th in the next decade.

  There was a conversation I had a few years ago, and to be honest it’s pretty vile. May even deserve a mild trigger warning, I don’t know. But I think about it sometimes because it is quite instructive, I feel, about how people form arguments, and how…

The Antichrist is coming to create a hell on earth, but don’t worry. If you are one of faithful, you will be Raptured, which is to say that God will scoop you up in his mighty hand and airlift you to the safety of heaven. Those left behind will have no…

Story
Introduction
I live in Edinburgh and I spend significant amount of time writing for The Skinny about comedy. I do other stuff too.

I'm not quite sure what G+ is for yet, so I've added hundreds of people just to see what happens. You're not obliged to add me back and I won't be offended if you block me. I try to post things that are mildly entertaining.

I also tweet a lot.
