A cheeky and alternative review of news and current affairs from my libertarian point of view. The review is sometimes critical, sometimes humorous, but always aims to be thought provoking while remaining interesting, I don’t deliberately intend to rattle any cages, but if I do it is done to entertain rather than annoy. When opportunity allows, I will dig up hypocrisy and share any irony and schadenfreude with undignified enthusiasm.

Episodes every fortnight unless there is a glut of of opportunity.
