Samira Ahmed’s equal pay victory is probably not going to help women
It is reported that:
- BBC pays out £3m to staff in a bid to avoid more employment tribunals following Samira Ahmed’s landmark equal pay victory
I do not care if the BBC pays out millions, as I do not pay for a TV licence, as I do not watch TV (unless I am at my friends).…
Alien Covenant (2017) – A good idea but a poor script
Although this came out in 2017, I have just watched the film in the last few days.
I did not mind this film, and I am enjoying the back story.…
DriveTribe app and website – Is it any good?
DriveTribe is a sort of social media platform.
But unlike most social media platforms, they have limited it to cars.
We have had car forums and dedicated websites/blogs for cars for years, and some of these get lots of views.…
Quibi the new entertainment app (coming to the USA soon)
Quibi is a new app, that is a bit like Netflix, but app based on your mobile or tablet (from what I have read) and clips ten minutes or less.
The date that is on the BBC site is 6th April (I presume 2020) when this app goes live.…

UK Labour potential leaders seem a bit naff
She seems OK, but not very exciting, and not seen her smile.
Although lived by the public, probably will not be selected as she is not as left as Labour now seems to be.…
Review: Gavin & Stacey Christmas Special
Normally I would not bother doing a review of a TV or Film, as to be honest I cannot be bothered.
Plus the fact that I have not watched the BBC or indeed ITV or CH4 for several years.…
RE: Gail Dines on “Fifty Shades of Grey”
Fifty Shades of Grey is a book written by E. L. James (a female writer) selling 125 million copies worldwide, and one suspects to a mainly female readership.
These books, destroy the myth that those who are against porn, portray porn as something made by men and consumed by men, when in this case it is a female writer, who seems to have a mainly female readership.…
Can you be against porn as a feminist?
This is not asking if someone can like or dislike porn on a personal belief.
The question is, can you be against porn, by saying it is against being a feminist?
The principle ideology of being a feminist (I would suggest) is that you have a belief in equality of both sexes.…
