It is polling time again soon in the UK and who are you going to vote for? Do you know? Have you made up your mind? Or are you going to listen to what's said and make and “informed decision?” 

Is that even possible in today’s world? Can you make sense of all the noise? If we put aside for one moment the rhetoric and hyperbole from each of the main party front liners and their spin doctors, which are bad enough, and we listen to the media pundits, bloggers, podcasters and YouTubers can…

Below is my response. Please do the same and keep the UK free from unelected regulators that could harm freeness of speech. 

While we all agree there is a need to tackle and deal with both illegal and harmful content online this must be put…

Bombarded by words

We spend our days being bombarded by words. From the first thoughts that jump into our heads as we wake up to the very last thoughts that fill our minds as we try to fall asleep.  

Some of these we notice, some we do not.  

We have…

So much to say and so little time

I have so much to say right now with everything going on in the world and the disinformation and cognitive propaganda machines in full swing. 

Unfortunately between working around 60 hours a week, studying for my postgrad in data-driven marketing and family life I am having very little time.
