Retrograde Upgrade
c. Michael St. Mark 2016

Windows ten, the Retrograde Upgrade, causing havoc, stress and mayhem across the globe. Far from shaken-down and riddled with beta faults and cul-de-sac glitches that often require technical help to resolve at substantial cost.  Even more seriously it contains a spectrum of what many people are saying is effectively spyware and other software that forces the user to accept terms and conditions involving loss of personal choice over other systems previously favored.

People would be well advised to avoid an update that can’t find itself in a basic search for as long as possible ( until it’s eventually forced on all Windows users, as it inevitably will be  ).

The terrible snowdrifts of the winter of 2013-14


terible snowdrifts

Truck and car park, Alexander Palace.

Re-post and deja-vu from two years back, when the UK was also blighted by a repetitive weather pattern that saw wave after wave of rainfall pounding the country on a mild SW airstream – the first winter in living memory when not a single snowflake was spotted falling from the sky in southern England.
The same phenomenon is repeating itself, at least during this year’s December element of winter, where floods and spring-like temperatures have been the norm.

The title of the Work pertaining to what giant snowdrifts look like when, due to climate change, winter temperatures don’t hack it any more.

Ivory Tower Tories

c. Michael St.Mark 2015

Coining of possibly the most accurate phrase to sum-up the current Conservative government’s sneeringly dismissive attitude in this their second (minority-of-the-vote) term in office, towards any amount of rational argument and protest against their morally questionable financial policy and punitive new laws, self-evidently designed with the aim of selling off the remainder of the nation’s assets through privatization of the public sector – including the NHS – which is  being deliberately run-down and starved of pay and resources in preparation.

Maximum profit for their fat cat corporate friends at the cost of millions of peoples’ QOL ( quality of life ), fair pay, health and basic rights being the inevitable and already visible consequence.

“Protest all you like plebs,  sure we’ll pretend to listen, maybe set up a long grass-kick review or two with their usual toothless and watered-down recommendations …but you know we’ll go ahead and bulldoze our pernicious laws through regardless ” – that’s the dictatorial rancid Cameron/Osborne fare spewing down onto the public from the tower’s top floor of disinterested privilege now and over the next four years.

The Tory class of 2015/16 – the most undemocratic, immoral and unpatriotic party in UK political history.
