    Cows to represent British Olympian spirit

    With the news that the Olympic openning ceremony is to conjure up images of a greener Britain using farm yard animals like horses, cows and ducks – yes ducks – it’s time to reflect on whether these people are just making it up as they go along. According to the […]

    There follows a grisly tale not for the faint-hearted, be warned. Walking home from the election night celebrations I approached what looked a little like a stuffed toy lying on the pavement. Sadly, as I got closer I realised it was a very stationary cat. I was about to say […]

    Eco-cosmetics company Lush put on a pretty horrific show during the week to highlight the cruelty involved in animal testing for cosmetics. Be warned, it’s a fairly disgusting video – so don’t watch if you don’t like deliberately confronting “performance art” that might make you feel a bit ill. Lush […]

    How does your dog get about town?

    You don’t see many of these around – a reverse tricycle with a large box in the front for the dog of means. Pretty neat way to travel in style. I believe these come from Denmark, the home of all civilised things. How else do people get their dogs around […]

    Vauxhall: There’s something in the eyes
