Jeremy Hunt is Getting Sick of People Calling Him ‘Jeremy C*nt’ on Live TV

The man who wants to be our next Prime minister, whose last name rhymes with a very rude word, is getting really sick of the many Freudian slips that have been happening on live TV. You know the ones I'm talking about, where people talking about Jeremy Hunt accidentally blurt out 'Jeremy Cunt' and pretend to look embarrassed.

We have to pay for a TV licence if we want to watch live TV, regardless of which channel it is, which a fair few people tend to be quite resentful of. But what might make them feel a bit better about coughing up £145 a year is that those older types are going to have to start ponying up the cash too.

Glastonbury Bans “Tory Genocide” Band

A band that describes itself as being "Electronic Rave Punk" and plays under the name of Killdren has been banned, uninvited, and had its name removed from its place in very, very small print on page 12 of the Glastonbury 2019 artists poster, thanks to investigative reporters who actually listened to some of their songs.

Local Election Made Nearly Exciting by E-Vote Trial

The process of voting and the world not changing even a bit as a result was made slightly less tedious in Gateshead yesterday, where a modern e-voting terminal was trialled to see if it made anything easier or the kids more likely to press part of a screen next to a man's insincere face than do an X on a bit of paper.
