The world is on fire, and the question on everyone’s lips is…which is the superior biscuit to have with a cup of tea, Rich Tea or Digestive?

Yes, Trump, the storming of Capital Hill, Coronavirus, Brexit, the imminent economic disintegration and accompanying societal collapse. …

Well, I’ve finally gone and got a Medium account.

This is a test story.

How useful this site will be obviously remains to be seen but I think of social media accounts as a bit like computer games. The early levels can be overwhelming because you are still processing the new experience and it takes a bit of time to get the hang of it. Is that right?

Look forward to reading lots of work by lots of writers on this site.

For the record I’ve previously written for On: Yorkshire about films and theatre and what not.

Many thanks!!
