Why I've Never Let the Things I Can't Change Spoil My Life

(0) Comments | Posted May 5, 2015 | 8:06 AM

It wasn't until I'd been worrying about chest pains for a few months that I finally decided to visit my GP. Like a typical bloke I'd preferred to at first adopt the 'head in the sand' strategy to health care.

There was a time when breaking news was rather more complex than being in the right place at the right time with a mobile phone and wifi.

Editor's Diary: Page 3, Kim K and Greece Frightening

(0) Comments | Posted January 22, 2015 | 6:00 PM

Defined by a storm in a D cup, this week The Sun newspaper's decision to 'hilariously' pretend it had listened to anti-Page 3 campaigners was offensively unfunny. I've heard it being described as sticking a middle finger up to parents, women and men who honestly believe Britain's most...

Why Understanding Dapper Laughs Is Probably Better Than Hating Him

Like a lot of people in the last week I've been on a crash course. I've binged on Vine. I've read every outraged blog. I've even watched two troubled media types debate on Newsnight - yes, Newsnight - the enigma, the phenomenon, the [INSERT OFFENSIVE WORD OF CHOICE] that is...

Introducing HuffPost UK Men

It's almost impossible to be a man. I doubt I can prove that sweeping (and deliberately inflammatory) statement with science or fancy statistics, but take it from me, it is. And I'm not alone thinking that.

The first time I listened to Led Zeppelin I was sat in a car park in my mother's car. I remember the moment like it was yesterday. It wasn't the epiphany I'd told it would be. It was, well, disappointing.

È la stagione della caccia agli uomini giovani - in particolare quelli che fanno il loro mestiere di calciatori in Brasile (con scarpini bicolori e tutto il resto).
