In my latest Medium story, I bravely emerge from the closet as a grammar Nazi and explain why, even though I celebrate the fact that the English language is a living, breathing thing that cannot and should not be constrained, when push comes to shove I’m on the side of Stannis Baratheon, the ill-fated pretender to the Iron Throne in Game of Thrones.

A cyclist’s rant

The Champs-Elys̩es on a Saturday night Рnot as scary as you might think.

My latest Medium story is a bit of a rant about the way cyclists are treated by many British motorists. Over the years I’ve been spat at, sworn at, driven at and threatened by all sorts of motorists. In this story I ask why they’re all so angry – and come up with a theory.
