A few months ago I saw the Australian western Sweet Country, and it’s been echoing around my mind since. In the outback, a preacher is pressed upon by an embittered and racist neighbour to lend his aboriginal labourer for a few days. His initial reluctance is overcome by an appeal to his Christian charity: “Isn’t… Read More
Advent is a time for self-examination, protest and mourning; whilst we wait for the warm and abundant hope of Christmas. I hope you enjoy this unorthodox choice of advent music: Curtis Mayfield’s People Get Ready.
Our ever creative friend Stephen Saunders has invented an ingenious device to enable lorry drivers to sleep during rest stops. It’s a clever hammock that is strung up between the windows of the cab. Most day-lorries don’t have reclining seats, so the Cabsnoozer is a valuable innovation. Tiredness on the road can kill, and so… Read More

On the other hand, paying someone in the… Read More
