I was alerted to the tragedy and the crime that is the loss of Malaysian Airlines flight MH 17 via Twitter. I was out for a ramble at the time, and the reports followed the now time-honoured formula.

My, but I’ve been having fun. Mr G decided to buy me a car to celebrate my return to normal life – nothing fancy, just a little run around that I could leave in the garage in England and potter round the neighbourhood in. Have lunch with a few old friends whenever I felt like […]

They  certainly do in Baghdad. But where is the outrage from the Fem Nazis? Where is the team of ‘British specialists’ sent out to Bagdad to investigate by our Prime Minister David Cameron? Where is Michelle Obama gormlessly holding up a #BringBackOurGirls sign? Where is the hysterical Twitter campaign? Perhaps if we were to relabel those women as […]
