  2. I’m a Berby Girl…Ouch

    It may appear unfair to a cynical minority, but nepotism remains as common as Coleen McLoughlin. I certainly have my father to thank for my first job—he was a kerb-crawler.Dimitar Berbatov also has his father to thank for his career...

  5. A Cute Little Growler

  7. Squealed with a Kiss

    I’ve never really understood the need for foreign travel. It makes no sense to leave a perfectly good country for a significantly poorer one; although this is never a real problem for the Welsh...

  9. Let Seeping Dogs Lie

    Everybody tells the occasional white lie. In a drunken bid to appear cool, I once claimed to have slept with over fifty women. My friends are now suspicious about a revised figure of five: luckily, the police can back me up on three cases...

  14. EPL: Red Bull – It Gives You Wins

    I do enjoy a moral dilemma. An intellectual friend asked if I would kill a chicken to save a chicken’s life. I honestly replied that I’d happily slaughter a chicken if I missed breakfast...

  19. Prince Harry goes to War for Media Opportunity

    Like Martin Luther King and Gandhi, I’m a fan of passive resistance; but there are some things in life that we have to fight for. For me, it’s a baby’s smile, the love of a mute woman or more affordable prices at the petrol pump...

  20. As One Door Shuts...A Nutter One Opens

    For some inexplicable reason, the subject of mental illness remains taboo. I am convinced that if we debate the topic in a mature and sensitive fashion, we could raise awareness of the constant unnecessary stigmatisation of these unfortunate lunatics...
