I was born in 1957, grew up in North London and, in 1975, after school (where I failed to reach my academic potential), I was offered employment with a pharmaceutical company in West London (relocating twenty years later to Hertfordshire, north of London) as a laboratory technician in a virology lab.
The company paid for my further education and I was awarded a Higher National Certificate (HNC) in Applied Biology (Microbiology) in 1979 and a BSc. (Hons.) in Applied Biology (Physiology and Pharmacology) in 1983.
During my time there I worked on research projects attempting to discover treatments for influenza, herpes, various cancers, psoriasis and neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s (citations). My last few years were spent in an IT/Communications role, developing web sites and Lotus Notes databases for a large research division.
In 2008, after nearly 33 years, I was offered redundancy and (very) early retirement. Yay!
In my spare time I enjoyed composing electronic music, trying my hand at digital art, playing tennis and the occasional game of squash. I also did a bit of blogging. Nowadays it’s as much as I can do to get up in the morning. In recent years I have developed something of a wrist watch obsession.
Following the sustained attempts by the globalist establishment elites (and their Useful Idiots) in the West, to overturn the result of the Brexit referendum and the election of Donald Trump (neither of which were supposed to happen), I finally realised that democracy is an illusion. The world we think we know is a construct beamed to us through the box in the corner of the room and our connected devices; a daily diet of propaganda from the mainstream “news” media, social media, reality TV, soaps, Hollywood, our political overlords, et al. The Matrix is real, just not quite as imagined in the movie. Goodbye TV Licence; goodbye BBC.
After the events of 2020, I am now anticipating with dread the implementation of The Great Reset, Agenda 2030 and the ensuing Neo-feudalism (complete with vaccine passports, digital IDs 15 Minute Cities and a Social Credit System). “Build Back Better” my arse. Better for whom? To quote Locutus of Borg: “Your life as it has been is over, from this time forward you will service us [The Technocracy]”.
Time to open another bottle of wine and hope a giant asteroid arrives soon (a proper “Great Reset”).
