Handing Out Impounded Cash

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 2, 2017 in Immoral Conversations |

One of the things I am constantly hearing here, especially when interacting with the older generation whose memory goes back further than mine, is how fair the British were, back in the day. By this they mean following the second world war and, in some cases, during those years too. I can’t say that this […]

The New, Younger, Fashionable Doctor Who

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 25, 2016 in Internet |

You could be forgiven for thinking, taking only the Tweet from the BBC as your reference, that Doctor Who has been reinvented as an American super hero in tight underpants and a mask. Perhaps they are trying to jump on the bandwagon which is Marvel Comics and the success of their super hero films, well, […]

Searching For The Phantom

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 24, 2016 in Internet |

One of the jokes about searching for criminals of recent years has been the screenshot of a news announcer next to a phantom image which had a surprising similarity to him. It highlighted to problems police have with creating an image of assailants through the artistry of a victim’s description and the skills of a […]

Loan Interest: How Much Are You Paying?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 16, 2016 in News & Opinion |

This is the way it works: you’re short of cash and need a quick loan. You know someone, or there is a payday loan company near you, and you get some ready cash to help you through the day, a few days, the week. Simple as that. Except that the interest many people pay on […]

Not Exactly Tasteful

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 13, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I had many strange thoughts about Europe before I came here, and even addressed a few of them here in an early post. I remember asking whether European women shaved their pits or not, because I had heard that they did not and, as we all know, such things are considered unacceptable in the prime, […]

Marmite And Europe?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 12, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

This could be a big one. This could be the battle which finally decides the future of the United Kingdom, and their relationship with Europe. After all the lies and the propaganda of the Brexit campaign – on both sides – something has happened which could be a turning point. Apparently the major British supermarket […]

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 8, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

The backlash against Donald Trump in the United states, following the revelations of his attitude towards women and clear belief in sexual assault and the right of the alpha male to command and control sexually, has begun. Several high-ranking Republicans have rescinded their endorsements, others have called for him to either set down from the […]

British Politics: Name And Shame

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 5, 2016 in News & Opinion |

Welcome to the new, improved United Kingdom, while it lasts. If you thought that things couldn’t get worse than they already are, the latest news from the small island out there in the North Sea will undoubtedly make you splutter over your Earl Grey tea and buttered scones in consternation. The United Kingdom Independence Party […]

The Downside To Democracy?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 4, 2016 in News & Opinion |

The last two weeks have been an absolute mudslide of news about major changes, or potential changes, to the political and social world. You just need to take a glance at the presidential campaign in the USA to see how far things can go, with threats, lies, counter-lies, facts and fictions dominating the news headlines. […]

The Simplicity Of A British Breakfast

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 19, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

During the time that I was still traveling, which seems an absolute age ago now, I often came across either the English or Continental Breakfast. Mostly these were served in hotels and had such a vast difference, it was easy to see how the ‘continent’ and the ‘island’ remain separated from one another. For the […]
