Brexit: Leavers Bank On "Democracy," EU, To Make It Work.

Brexit Britannia, a Wendy Cockcroft cartoon for On t'Internet
If there was ever a reason to attempt the reversal of the Brexit process it's the fact that Leavers utterly refuse to take responsibility for the mess they've made. This is a problem across the political spectrum in which ideological dogma rules the roost. Is there anything we can do about it?

Rape Culture: Where The Left Lets Us Down

Rape Culture graphic by Wendy Cockcroft for On t'Internet
In my last post I pointed out that rape culture is a patriarchal problem and that the Right, which claims to uphold traditional values, is dreadfully hypocritical, to say the least. But is the left any better? Trigger warning: Go read something else if you're easily offended; the snark is strong with this one.

Rape Culture: What Can We Do To Stamp It out?

Cartoon of Wendy Cockcroft for On t'Internet
Following the revelations about disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, sex abuse victims are coming out of the shadows to tell their stories and as a result, more bad guys are going down. Can we talk about this?

Warning: I don't pull my punches so if you're easily offended, get off my lawn blog.

Brexit farce, a cartoon by Wendy Cockcroft for On t'Internet
Law expert Jo Maugham QC has got hold of a report from the Treasury, and it makes for sobering reading. Basically, if we're stuck on WTO (world trade organisation) rules, we're screwed.

It's not that simple.

Would Censorship Save Us from Hitler 2.0?

cartoon of right wing extremist by Wendy Cockcroft for On t'Internet
One of Brexit's red lines was getting rid of the Human Rights Act — which guarantees personal freedom. With that gone, the Tories would be free to introduce the draconian censorship they believe will save us from the bad guys. It won't. This is why.

Anti-Brexit Talking Points

On Wednesday, 29 March, 2017, Britain's ambassador to the EU, Sir Tim Barrow, hand-delivered a six page letter from Prime Minister Theresa May to the EU Council President Donald Tusk in Brussels to formally begin proceedings related to Article 50 to get Britain out of the European Union. So far this has proved problematic, to say the least. Basically, it's not as easy as we'd been led by the Leave side to believe. Now what?
