I'm brewing up a post here along the lines of, like, "if you want to criticise Varadkar, criticise him for our ravaged health service, not for his battenberg birthday cake". Still working out the details. More soon!

This year I’m going to start referring to stuff as “nonsense on its face”, “untrue on its face”, and so on. A lot of stuff around here is going to start being on its face in 2022, let me tell you.

They just keep thinking up new, radically innovative ways to be a moron. We truly live in a golden age of ways to be a complete moron! https://t.co/T9NeXQP2LU

God, imagine if Keanu Reeves ever did something bad. Hard to imagine how people would act, but it wouldn’t be good.

I’m personally not convinced that Zadie Smith reviews books to help keep on top of the old monthly outgoings

Tweeting some shit like “the elites don’t want you to know it’s Friday night” while me and 3 of my most repulsive friends sit around looking at our phones like the Donner party huddling around a freezing ox carcass

We need to set a better example for young people, and not encourage them to pick up dangerous and addictive habits, like talking about themselves this way. https://t.co/Qz9sgiHCTi

If you ever disagree with a former boss at a later stage on an unrelated issue, you’ve got to go back and give them all your savings and also subsequent earnings. Sad but it’s true, and makes a lot of sense. I am very smart https://t.co/QAH5s5iqre
