A reminder (as if anyone needed it) that is fantastic and just found out she is doing a book about the depiction of Roman Emperors in post- renaissance art. It strikes me my art history is a bit weak on my book shelves. So eagerly await.

Naive as they were, Darwin Award candidates that they are, ISIS are the ones who deserve the contempt and ridicule. Threatened by good will non meat eating cyclists. Pathetic murdering unbeliever obsessed bastards whose own cycle of terror will one day end.

Evil does exist. It’s called ISIS. And despite the cyclists belief in the goodness of humanity, they were killed as “unbelievers”. Travel warnings exist for a reason. h/t ⁦

Debt aversion due to impact on poorer families of debt on living standards is the one sited. Whether maintenance grants or explaining how affordable student loan system is in countering that issue for some, is another. Think more informational issue: ie it’s not for me.

If you don’t mind a giant squid and death by bird dung missing from the Dr No film (trust me they are both in the book) then give Elba a chance as he is a great actor.

Darling I did witness the orgy, as did many people, but I didn’t participate in screwing anyone. I did handle something but it wasn’t that particular something everyone is implying. Mainstream media cannot tell an honourable man in a compromising position. Saudi Arabia! Yemen!

For those who want more information on how Athenians got rid of uppity politicos, read 's Persian Fire. It's sweeping yet detailed.

i reiterate that the most awful thing about this whole affair, which recall involves not just *obvious* abuse but also a fawning defense by butler & co., is the repeated insistence, by journalists and academics alike, that avital ronell is a feminist

I fear as the referendum was advisory, and therefore up to government how how to respond with consent of parliament (including now with electoral commission findings) however if I’m wrong it’s important to know!

Indeed, it gets compounded if you are not on record criticising the Muslim Brotherhood in strongest terms. Yes to solidarity with peaceful protestors murdered in cold blood. Support political aims of MB, never.
