The UK Forests - an archive report

At the risk of turning this into a political blog, I want to post this little report I did in March this year about the coalition governments attempt to sell of the public forests.
I'm posting this because tonight I found out that the Public Bodies Bill is having it's third and final reading in the house of commons. (It's last stage of parliament-people standing around making changes before the Queen approves it and we live under it.)
Within the Public Bodies Bill was the proposal to sell the forests. The report explains more...
The bill appears to be coming in and it still affects a lot of things. It will allow the Government to close or merge 495 public bodies who deal with things like nature, legal aid, sports, arts, human rights and more.This is actually an interesting read on the process of the bill:

Westminster Bridge

I went along to the protest which blocked Westminster Bridge last weekend.
It wasn't the most exciting demonstration I must admit. Very relaxed and more like a street party.
I still stayed a while and saw some amusing stuff. These were some of them. A lot of peculiar and funny things do happen at protests.

Stool Pigeon #34

A new Stool Pigeon has hit the streets. It's the fantastic free music newspaper available all over the place.
And of course it has a new gig review by some guy (me). It covers the recent show by excellent The War On Drugs. Grab a copy to see the whole review plus exclusive David Lynch interview and loads more essential music stuff.

Here is the review from last issue...

On the radio!

I'm going stick a music video here which I made a little while ago. It's kind of celebrating the fact that it got a mini plug on BBC 6 radio! The lovely jubbly Marc Riley (of The Fall fame too!) played an amazing band who I've loved for a long time, Bo Ningen, I sent him a message and he surprisingly mentioned that I had made the video for the track and that I also worked with the legendary Cats In Paris! Thanks Marc.
