I’d never heard of the word “whataboutism” before John Oliver mentioned it as he spoke at length about Donald Trump on his show Everything That Trump Did Wrong Last Week, sorry, Last Week Tonight. If you take the programme’s definition, “whatabout-ism” is a way in which some people […]
What Went Wrong Or Right With...?

The recent death of Gangsta Boo got me thinking about how much Three 6 Mafia changed over the years. I’ll admit that I was more of a Bone Thugs-N-Harmony fan but back in the mid-90’s, I heard Three 6’s debut album Mystic Stylez and loved their similarly double-time, […]
Ben Affleck + Jennifer Lopez = Bennifer Brad Pitt + Angelina Jolie = Brangelina Kim Kardashian + Kanye West = Kimye Tom Hiddleston + Taylor Swift = Hiddleswift Tom Cruise + Katie Holmes = TomKat This is what happens when a single celebrity is so lacking in charisma […]
Love Actually is now touted as “one of the greatest Christmas films of all time”, I assume, by the beige, easily-pleased titterati. When this flick was first released, there were loads of folk declaring how mediocre it was, but in recent years, Love Actually has unfathomably snowballed into […]
Marriage is such an archaic concept. A wedding ceremony is closer to signing-over ownership than a declaration of love, with spouses being no more than chattel draped in overpriced finery. Like a game show where you “bank” on your assumed best prize (in this case the best you […]
Did Margaret Thatcher or Theresa May do anything to benefit British women? Did Barack Obama do anything positive for black Americans? Most people would say no, and yet numerous wankers in the mainstream media are currently bragging about Liz Truss’ cabinet which apparently doesn’t feature “white men” in […]
Have you noticed a lot of comedians incessantly chirping on about the “woke” ruining comedy or “cancel culture” affecting what they can and can’t say? Comedians, especially stand-up comedians, have recently remodelled themselves as martyrs of freedom as though they’re on the front-lines of a war, a culture […]
Us is a very underwhelming film, and judging by its score on various review aggregate sites, it’s a hell of an overrated one too. The trailer promised horror and an eerie atmosphere but there’s hardly any in the finished product. Like Jordan Peele’s previous offering Get Out, this […]
It’s strange how certain words evolve over time to favour the establishment, reinforce the status quo, and quash any opposition. There are numerous words that we use on an almost daily basis whose etymology shows an obvious path of racism, xenophobia, jingoism, the subversion of foreign cultures, and […]
I remember watching Ruby Rose presenting the MTV Europe Music Awards and during the broadcast there were a slew of straight women on social media saying they’d “go gay” for her. Scrolling through Twitter that day was like hearing that line in True Romance; “If I had to […]
I’m old enough to remember when “white” and “black” were the only two acceptable terms for race. Anything else was racist. If someone was labelled “yellow” for instance, it was derogatory, as too was calling someone “red”. When my parents came to Britain the signs read “Whites Only” […]
You really have to wonder how and why Nick Cannon is famous. Looking like a reject Wayans brother who fell off the talent tree and missed every branch on the way down, this wanker can’t host, can’t rap, can’t act, and can’t do stand-up, but somehow he’s doing […]
Citizen Kane, despite being a flop when it was first released, has gone on to become one hell of an overrated movie, in fact it’s arguably the most overrated movie of all time. Thanks to groupthink, lickspittle critics, Kane has been declared not only the “greatest film ever […]
