apoplectic.me is on vacation this week.
You’ve got to help me. I’ve gone on holiday by mistake.
I’ll look forward to writing to you next week. But in the meantime, please do take the opportunity to catch up with these recent scribblings by a bloke three years removed from a catastrophic haemorrhagic stroke:

Will This Do? – on Boris Johnson, in the style of a lazy, research shy, moron.
Will This Do, Too? – more #EUreferendum: why are these lying bastards lying to me?
Stroke Digest #8 – On The Revenant, Richard Dawkins, and a junior doctors’ strike update.
Survival – On The James Plays, lies, damned lies, and statistics.
All from a uniquely stroke-y angle.
Till next week…

“Some of you, perhaps, have already heard what this paper contains, but I would just like to read it to you: BORIS IS A SCRUFFY, TWO-FACED BASTARD.”
Since 22 February, seven months have passed, and the bloody vote won’t take place until 23 June.

Yesterday evening, I still had no idea what this week’s blog would be about. Then, the hand of history reached out across the British Isles….
Hold on, isn’t this an episode of Threads ? Continue reading Will This Do?
