The Bedroom Tax.
'The bedroom tax has made one thing clear, at least. It has told us, in no uncertain terms, who matters to this government and who can be sacrificed. It's shown us it's willing to make life harder for people coping with long-term sickness or disability. It's shown us it's quite content to see people in poverty and push them further past the edge…'.

Afternoon mooch.

Bicycles in Bath for a nibble round the city and, more specifically, to ride through the Combe Down Tunnel.

The tunnel formed part of the Somerset and Dorset railway and was built in 1874 but closed in 1966. Derelict since then, it was reopened in April as a ‘shared path’ and is the longest bicycleable tunnel in Britain at just over a mile long with quite the backstory - it was so long that it killed people.

There’s a slight bend at both ends with a long straight in the middle so there’s no daylight in there, but it’s lit with really minimal spots to protect the bats that live in there and there’s also an art project that provides motion activated ghosty lights and music at various points. It’s ‘fridge cold’ and smells amazing, all musty and tunnelly, but fresh and clean at the same time.

There’s pretty much no wind in there so we went backwards and forwards through it a couple of times in a 4 man drafting team to see how fast we could go - the most fun I’ve had on a bike in a long time.

You can ride a nice shortish 13 mile route that takes you along the canal, through the tunnel (and another one) and over a viaduct and lands you back in the centre of Bath for tea and cake so you should probably go.

Here’s that video of that possibly Dutch lad riding his bike through that bike tyre that you didn’t know you were excited about seeing.

Pure OCD: a rude awakening...

And so went the next seven years of my life, or my “life”, I should say. Because when the pure O exploded, my life grew inverted commas and flew away…

Since I was 15, pure O has underscored everything I’ve done, and I may never be without it. But in a small way, I’ve come to love it for the far-reaching wisdoms lurking within its fetid little heart. When we try to fight our thoughts, pure O shows, we only make them stronger. It is only when we give ourselves the freedom to be uncertain and insecure, that we reach a deeper sense of who we are…’.
