These are the personal opinions of Gears

Stuff just comes out of my head.

Crime of the century

This one is from Northants police. Sadly their website doesn’t render properly on mobile, so here is their latest news post. Man sought following theft of venetian blind from Dunelm Mill, Northampton Police have released a picture of a man who they wish to trace in connection with an alleged theft of a venetian blind from the Dunelm Mill store… Read more →

The Government approved Fracking.

In Lancashine this week the UK Government went against the decision of the local council, against environmentalists and local campaign groups. The go-ahead was given for UK shale rock to be fracked horizontally to extract gas. Yeah.. Here’s how that turned out down in Australia… Read more →

America. Think carefully when you vote.

Honestly, I love America, but there’s a very good chance that the country is about to go back several decades. There’s a very good chance that every other country in the world will move away from them and cut diplomatic ties. It could all get very ugly.. Read more →

Facebook satellite goes BOOM!

The SpaceX test went a bit wrong yesterday and the rocket went bang. Nobody was hurt, but a very expensive satellite owned by Facebook was inside, and that went KABOOM!!!! HAHAHAAHHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAA!! HA HA HA HAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Read more →

Trump. Is. Insane.

We will build a great wall along the southern border. We will begin working on an impenetrable, physical, tall, powerful, beautiful southern border wall. You. Utter. Fucking. Maniac. If you get into the White House, America can kiss goodbye to any global credibility. What an absolute spanner. A 2000 mile wall? What kind of image are you trying to portray… Read more →

Morning all. Time for some more tunes.

Alright lovely people. Time for another selection of tunes that are helping to keep me sane. First of all, it’s the NU:TONE mixe of “Sunshine” by Tieks. A lovely summery garage tune this one and, despite the fast beat, it’s really rather melodic… Next up, KDA with “Just say”. Another lovely bouncy tune this one with a vocal from Tinashe.… Read more →

What the fuck America?

Seriously. Where do you start with this? Another shooting in America. Another police office shoots another black man. This time though, it’s all captured on a mobile phone, and it’s been uploaded to YouTube… by the GIRLFRIEND OF THE GUY WHO GOT SHOT!? The guy was pulled over, apparently because the rear lights weren’t working properly on the car. According… Read more →

OK. So, Remain Lost. Vote Leave won. Here’s my thoughts.

Not going to sit on the fence here. It’s my blog. Basically, I’m confused as to why people couldn’t see all this coming when they voted “Leave”. It’s perhaps the most stupid, ideological decision ever. We have a powerful economy here in the UK. That’s why it’s attracting people. That’s why we have immigration. If our economy was knackered then… Read more →

The countdown to the #EUref – Time to decide

Good morning. Today it’s time to decide about whether we’re staying in Europe. People are confused and they’re relying on confusing, misleading and sometimes plain wrong. So, consider this. If you’re basing your choice on immigration, what would you do with the millions of other immigrants already here? At what point do you draw a line? Do you kick out… Read more →

Irish fans get a bit merry… but …

It seems that an Irish fan with a drum got a bit over-excited and stood on the roof. This made a dent so they started putting money down the door as compensation. Then a couple of them had an idea… Read more →

The countdown to the #EUref – My gut

Sadly, this is how I and a LOT of people I speak to are going to vote – purely based on a punt. A guess. A gut feeling. It’s a sad state of affairs and it’s based on nothing more than a wild stab-in-the-dark choice… Read more →

The countdown to the #EUref – Ben Goldacre

The following is by Ben Goldacre. Full credit to him and do visit his site at Why I am voting Remain. by Ben Goldacre, aged 41. A smaller democracy will not be  “more representative”. The UK government is no more under your control than the EU. Diluting your vote one in 65m or one in 500m amounts to the… Read more →

The countdown to the #EUref – Immigration

Most of the migrants living in the UK do not come from Europe. This video is 5 minutes long. It’s from Migration Observatory, which is basically the University of Oxford. They provide independent, authoritative, evidence-based analysis of data on migration and migrants in the UK. No bullshit. No spin. Just give it 5 minutes. Just 5 minutes. Read more →
