The Tab is a fairly recent Cambridge paper set up (that has now been copied by most British universities), that tries painfully hard to be as tabloid as possible, I guess because it's ironic because these are really well-educated kids who wouldn't usually be reading tabloids? harhar har right. So its not really… » 11/08/14 8:28am 11/08/14 8:28am

There are a fair few stories in the gossip mags and tabloids (I think its the Mirror that has the particular obsession), but things only get really bad at the big moments - the baby, the wedding etc. The baby coverage was 24/7 and incredibly annoying. Every news show had reporters waiting outside the hospital. Some… » 10/02/14 11:26am 10/02/14 11:26am

Quick question - hasn't Pharrell pretty much been let off the whole controversy over Blurred Lines? Thicke was the one who took the most flack for the horrid lyrics and all that, I haven't seen many people talking about how much they dislike Pharrell for them too. » 9/15/14 3:38pm 9/15/14 3:38pm

We got very high and went swimming in the sea, and inevitably decided to take naked pictures underwater. She got them developed a few weeks ago and it seems like in my stoned state… » 9/01/14 5:58am 9/01/14 5:58am

Annoying but unsurprising considering the paper its in. Though I am actually a little disappointed that they are bringing private sector workers in rather than promoting from within. Public bodies in the UK at the moment seem to think that the private sector is some magical wonderland where elves who can fix all their… » 8/31/14 1:23pm 8/31/14 1:23pm

So I red today that Mike Brown was shot twice as many times as British police have discharged their weapons in THE ENTIRE COUNTRY FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR. As in, British police have used their weapons 3 times in the last year, killing no one. Now I'm far from saying that British police are perfect, and that the UK is a… » 8/19/14 6:54pm 8/19/14 6:54pm
