About Me

No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play. I will 'bite the hand that feeds' to remind it why it feeds.

M is for More toys tomorrow...

...Libya, Nigeria, Mali, Tunisia, Egypt...Crimea, Ukraine, Georgia, Transdniestria, Moldova...Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Burma...Peru, Mexico, Columbia...

Religious zealots, drug cartels, Marxist/Leninist ideologues, 'genuine' revolutionaries...we're all one species and we better find a way of getting along together soon, or there'll be no planet left worth living on.

With thanks to the artist Lee Marej for letting me use his image:

I understand your sentiment, but I don't suppose there is any hope of that is there? No, with all the intolerance and dogmatic hate speech that is spewed from a few religious zealots, there is very little hope of that.

There is an element of religious zealotry in the way capital is accelerating privatisation and the transfer of wealth upwards, increasing the gap between rich and poor, surrendering the efforts of the last 70 years to create more humane and tolerant, socially responsible models, the way it is dismantling support structures and creating the disenfranchised under-classes that can be appealed-to by fundamentalists everywhere.

But I know you're just sore I haven't posted toys yet!
