Stop the chicken mega factory in Higham Ferrers

I received an email a couple of weeks ago from Compassion in World Farming saying about the building of a chicken mega-farm close by. The email was targeted to me. It said “Hello Samuel” and something along the lines of it being proposed to be built “just up the road”. I skimmed over it and [...]

Spoons bar crawl

Protest, crawl and ppaaarrttayy

I had a bloody good time. On Saturday 11th February I was scheduled to work and did everything I could to get the day off.  I managed it.  The week before I had met up with Tom who had said about the idea of doing a Spoons bar crawl.  That Saturday was also the day [...]

Anti-Trump protest

On Monday 30th January 2017, I took part in the anti-Trump protest in London. It was a demonstration organised within just two days. Thousands of people lined the streets of Whitehall to voice their opinions.  This was in response to Trumps executive ordering banning the entry into the US from 7 Muslim majority countries.  It [...]

Happy New Year 2017! 

Happy New Year everyone! 2016 was a pretty great year for me. A huge thank you to everyone who made it wonderful. Life can be taken so fast so it’s important to grasp it and enjoy it. Live it! Carpe diem. YOLO. I shall make 2017 a special one. The plans on how to do [...]

Road traffic collision

Yesterday I was in a nasty crash. Coming along Northampton Road before it becomes Oxford Street, I approached a car in front of me.  It hit the brakes, indicated left and made a left manoeuvre.  Despite hitting my brakes, there wasn’t enough time for me to stop.  The time between her indicating and turning was [...]

Now can you see me?

World Naked Bike Ride 2016

I recently took off my clothes and rode a bicycle around London for my third World Naked Bike Ride.  It has now become an annual event and one which I would not miss. The event is a series of protests and one of making statements.  It calls on society to reduce its reliance on cars [...]

Pollution at St. Pancras

Air pollution

It’s killing you. Two of my interests are the protection of our environment and cycling so one particular topic that pops up on my radar time and time again is that of air pollution. A year ago I went on a protest against the wider issue of climate change entitled “Time to Act“.   It [...]

Bicycles, Bins, Bombs and no plan B

Lots of B’s. Bicycling, Bins, Bombs and no plan B. I finally got round to creating the following video. I have a tendency to film everything and anything. On the Sunday evening when I arrived back in Wellingborough the idea of beginning the seemingly humungous task of editing it was daunting. With no one to [...]

Don’t Bomb Syria!

Today a vote will occur in the House of Commons about whether Britain should bomb Syria. I say. Don’t Bomb Syria. On Saturday I attended a protest in Whitehall and listened to impassioned pleas for the government to for an air strike campaign not to happen. David Cameron has called on his MPs, and others [...]

People to the People

I try to avoid the lure but with it being just so easy I fell victim.  Click, click, click and boom after a few days for a small price arrives some fun.  Amazon, please start paying your fair share of tax. Anyway, I treated myself to a new toy.  And here’s the “unboxing” video: Power [...]
