We're doing it again! This time we are biking from Petra in Jordan up to Nazareth in Israel, to raise money for the Nazareth Hospital CT Scanner appeal. Last year we raised over £50,000 for the Children's Unit! Nazareth is the largest Arab town in Israel; the people are lovely, and the kids are awesome. Nazareth also treats kids in the West Bank of Palestine who have very limited access to healthcare. They need your help! Go to my sponsorship page to find out more and see what you can do! Maybe even join us..?

Tweet people love playing "Divide and Rule"

Dianne Abbot MP may not be stupid in general, but her famous tweet*
was a stupid thing to say, and, yes, it was a racist thing to say. But
seriously, is this a major problem? Kick her arse and move on; let her
move on too.

One of the most tedious things about Twitter is the number of people
prepared to get enormously outraged at every silly wee thing; if you
had listened to Twitter, you'd have thought the Alternative Vote was
in the bag. You'd have thought that the NHS Bill would have foundered
in the early stages. You'd have thought that no-one would be stupid
enough to re-tweet "I'm doing an experiment to prove to my wife how
great Twitter is" crap.

Twitter, I am sorry to say, is a *shite* barometer of the wider
Zeitgeist, and people (including @shanemuk - pls RT my wife thinks I
waste too much time LOL FTW w00t etc etc #inaneCrap) need to get over
themselves a bit. A lot.
