I don’t know when @HibernianFC and @WestHam will be top of their respective leagues again, and although it’s early days I aim to savour the fuck out of it.
Great piece of writing, acting and directing…
Thanks for having me - what a show!…
Enjoyed One City @edbookfest from kitchen table. Fab Edinburgh story extracts @sarasheridan @nadineaishaj @AnneHamilton7 @Beathhigh. Fave moment, juxtaposition @IrvineWelsh on Jeff Bezos (made personal bazillions off books) & plea for funding of local libraries. Our world today.

Can’t recommend this great show highly enough. You don’t have to know anything about football or Hibs to enjoy it - my gf hates all that sort of stuff and loved it. Thanks for having me @1902Play…

@IrvineWelsh "Did you bring the carrots? The last thing I told you was to mind the carrots." "Well I've not brought them..." "Fkin boring without the carrots" "Well why didn't you sort it?" "COS I TOLD YOU TO SORT IT YOU DOSS C**T!"

“Let’s get done by Brexit. I mean…get Brexit done!”
Since 2012, our culture has been suffocated by mandatory positivity. Please share your least favourite 'be positive' slogans with me. I'm making a small archive of this insidious ideology that I'm convinced is connected to the rise in depression and SSRI use. Be negative!

Has anyone noticed how "Let's Take Back Control" became "We Think There Will Still Be Food" and now "We'll Get the Army In To Put Some Stuff on Those Empty Shelves"?

A fucking idiot told me it was okay to shit the bed so we’re all good.
Trying to work out how much longer I can use the ‘I think we’re all relieved post-lockdown to get back to some kind of normality and we did lose two years of social life and need to catch up’ excuse for excessive drinking.
Not seen a single episode of this or Friends…
Our latest guests have written a fabulous book series "JAMAICAN RECORDINGS, A History Of The Jamaican Recording Industry" concentrating on the studios and producers. Volume 1 is "THE BIRTH OF SKA, From Mento To Studio One" Listen at…

A timely reminder that for all Biden’s cuntishness there’s nobody who does stupid quite like Trump. What a fucking mess we are in.…
Fuck you and your smug young cunt liver, Esplin…
That was a hoor of a session with @BandOfHolyJoy @TuTall @gregesplin @inga_tillere last night. I hope the north London jock/geordie/Latvian bastards realise that they rode my liver to fuck.
Now is the time to keep up the pressure. @Drive2Survive3 will be at this #killthebill demo on Saturday. Please join us.

I expect to hear “we couldn’t get a fucking word out of you for six months, now you won’t shut the fuck up.” Well I DIDN’T ASK to be a writer. I DIDN’T ASK to be born. (Stamps foot in teen petulance).
Now that I’ve finished my book, it’s time to take a well earned break to unsettle and undermine the lives of all my friends who have real jobs by leading them wildly astray.
Don’t say that nobody won the war in Afghanistan. If you invested $10,000 in defense stocks when the war began, your stocks would now be worth almost $100,000. Defense contractors and their shareholders. That’s who won the war in Afghanistan.

An MP's salary is £81,932 The cost of Raabs holiday £40,000! Dominic Raab spent half his yearly salary on a one week holiday?! Who really paid for it????

Are the Tory MPs who argue against accepting refugees into the U.K. because ‘we should look after our own people first’ the same MPs who voted not to feed vulnerable kids?

Sent off my novel to the publishers. Don’t know if it’s any good or not, just delighted to be shot of the bastard and have this head space back. Probably time to go to the boozer.
Couldn't help myself. Here's my Gay anthem 'Hard Men' with ludicrous but lucious lyrics by Laurence Fox. #laurencefox #hardmen #softmen

This season is the first that my Dad hasn't renewed his #NUFC season ticket...since the 1940s. The club kindly ran his story in Sunday's matchday programme. I've republished it here:

“I didn’t vote for them, but as long as they are in power we should get behind them.” What does this muppet actually think the Taliban stand for?…
This is real bravery. This takes real courage. Lawrence Fox and his ilk would know fuck all about that.…

When the US and Europe invades, refugees are part of the price. Pay your fucking debts.

Raab really sticking it to the Taliban here: we can apply sanctions or withhold ODA (overseas aid). That’ll show them. In unrelated news, the government has already cut aid to Afghanistan by 78% this year.

I thought this 'study' from the @BNFEvents looked at bit suspect and I can't believe how easy it was to find out some pretty startling facts about it.…
