It had to come sooner or later

It was bound to happen one day. It is common knowledge among Rusters that one of our columnists on this esteemed organ – who shall remain nameless despite having previously blogged about it himself – is in a relationship with a female robot and, so far as any of us know, is blissfully [...]

Hello 2018!

Being an incorrigible cynic and unabashed hair-shirt sort of a guy, I have felt ever since my mid-twenties that I was always going to be naturally suited to the role of being an old, ‘off the pace’ curmudgeon – basically an object of (behind my back) amusement to young generations – by [...]

What goes around, comes around – or does it?
