Returning to scunthorpe this evening, the Scunthorpe Nights team witnessed an accident which saw a car being flipped on its side.

As far as we are aware there were no serious injuries.


Please keep clear of the area for now or allow extra travelling time.


Been asked by the guys at ferric to give some feedback on which one of these two designs should be done on a canvas.

Well, which one?




Once again we seem to be poised on the precipice as we were with the invasion of Iraq. Led by an ineffectual government hell bent on leaving their smouldering mark on the middle while continuing to kiss the USA’s arse and, ignoring evidence (or the lack of), Cameron has the audacity to preach morality about the use of Chemical Weapons from his position of Etonian privilege.  (more…)


Here’s Ferric Street’s second commission for the Blue Door refuge on Scunthorpe, painted last Saturday.

Last night (12th Aug) saw the height of the Perseid Meteor storm across the UK.

It also coincided with the passing over of the International Space Station (ISS).

All photo’s are taken using a cheap Digital SLR camera with a stock 18-55 lens, this does mean that there’s a bit more noise than I would have liked in the pics but I’m not buggering around in the dark with decent kit so the photos are what they are.

Saying that, they’ve not come out bad, the observations of the ISS were shot at 21:24 using ISO100 F18 and a 30 second exposure time, the later shots were done using f5(ish) and ISO 200. Some of the later shots not featuring the ISS were experimental

If you’d like to learn more about the International Space Station (ISS) and when it is visible where you are (in the UK) check out the Meteor Watch web site.

Benefit Fraud

Posted: August 13, 2013 in Class Politics, Class War

There’s a lot of you Daily Mail types hollering about benefit fraud, sickness and disability scams and of course unemployed people living in mansions while the humble right wing Daily Mail reader slogs away at work, paying more tax than any one else should because of the EU open borders immigration policy.

So here are some facts.

Several years of facts to be true, you will not find them in the Daily Mail as they disprove the Tory loving, foreigner bashing mentality of their readership, but you will find them on the government’s web site here.

That’s facts people, not bullshit.

For those of you that can, happy reading, for those of you who cant, here’s a link to the daily mail “proving” that once again its all Labour’s fault. (Which of course it is, but not for the reasons stated by the Daily Mail.)

PS – for those of you who follow my blog for the photos, here’s a pic of my garden last night.
