This is just a brief post to collect all my Medium posts from the last month in one place to make them more easily accessible. As I’m planning on trying to write more and get back to something like my old frequency of posting, posts like this should be a good way of letting me see how much I’m writing.
First post of the month was my public declaration of support for Jo Swinson in the Lib Dem leadership election:
Why I voted for Jo Swinson
I’ve cast my Lib Dem leadership vote for Jo Swinson. Here are my reasons why.
Obviously a very influential post as she did go on to record a clear victory.
Next, I looked at conspiracy theorising and put forward my own idea that maybe there aren’t conspiracies behind everything, maybe there’s just arseholes getting lucky.
What if there is no evil plan?
What if there’s not a conspiracy behind everything? What if it’s just arseholes getting lucky?
With Jo Swinson winning the Liberal Democrat leadership race and Boris Johnson being elected the new Conservative leader, I compared the relative positions of the two and their parties. (This post was curated by Medium in their World section)
Jo Swinson and Boris Johnson have become leaders of their parties one day apart. How do their situations compare?
The day after, when Johnson became Prime Minister, I looked at what this meant for Britain as a country, and how we’d retreated from seriousness into silliness.
Britain is no longer a serious country
Boris Johnson becoming Prime Minister is a sign we’re no longer interested in interacting with the world as it is.
Returning to theme of conspiracies and grand plans, I looked at whether some events were part of a “dead cat strategy” or just cock-ups.
On dead cats, shock and awe, and cock-ups
Sometimes, what looks like a clever strategy is just someone making a mistake.
And finally after a week (yes, it’s just been a week) of Boris Johnson as Prime Minister, I looked at just how far Britain has fallen away from seriousness and into childish petulance.
