It’s Official: Dogs Love Reggae Too!

Reggae. Reggae. Reggae. Here comes Jonny Reggae. Who doesn’t like a bit of reggae? Eh? Who doesn’t like Bob Marley’s No Woman No Cry or Tree Lickle Birds, I mean Three Little Birds? No self-respecting party or jump-up would be seen dead without these iconic numbers: as was evidenced down…

Blame it on the sunshine…

I am a plonker. For the record, I usually am not one. I generally have my wits about me. But (blame it on the sunshine, 40 degrees in the shade last week: blame it on the moonshine…) today I strode confidently into a well-known women’s clothes shop in the Westfield…

A Fair Cop? Not Likely!

What’s the police for? Seriously, what are they for? Give me a moment while I consult Google. Just to be sure. Google says ‘the police is responsible for the prevention and detection of crime’. Ah yes! Catch the criminals. I kinda guessed so. Didn’t need to trouble Google. But still……

Time to Grant Anonymity to Suspects, Too

I am thinking of going into politics if only to change a certain section of the law. For too long I have been concerned about a law that protects the identity of rape and sexual assault complainants yet reveals that of the suspect. Even if the accused is prosecuted and…

Is Netflix better than sex?!

Netflix is better than sex. Nooo! Wot? Say what now! Under normal circumstances, in situations such as these, I would have coupled that statement with the word ‘allegedly’ meaning ‘without proof’. But no need for that ‘cos there is proof. Plenty of it. To boot. And it comes straight from…

No Ifs…But More Butts?

When I was quite young, I decided to save up as much money as I could get my paws on to pay for what I believed to be a much-needed and life-saving operation. You see, I was well-endowed in the derrière region and spent much of my life being embarrassed…

Flights of Fancy?

I could be wrong about this, but if I have a health condition, I do believe it is my responsibility to take care of myself and not leave that responsibility to others. What do I mean by all this? As we go along, you will get the picture. To begin….

Break the Bias – Do It For The [Black] Girls!

March is the month for The Girls. Mothers’ Day is celebrated this month of course, as is International Women’s Day, which got me thinking about us Black women and how we stand in society today. A report set to be published ahead of International Women’s Day states that there is…

Dark(ey) End of The Street?

Picture this. Two visitors to a village in Devon were left ‘shocked and extremely upset’ by what they saw. What did they see? Did they chance upon a terrible road accident or a building ablaze? No. Did somebody die? Not even that. What then caused these two outsiders to the…

The Law is an Ass… Again!

I have said it before, and I will say it again. The law is an ass. Did I say, the law isan ass? For sure. Especially when it comes to celebrities. Again! Take the case ofFrank Lampard, former Chelsea and England star player. He was in trouble theother week. Well,…
