Darryl Morris Weekly – 22.01.21 – Humans

This year’s live music events began to tumble this week, with Glastonbury officially cancelled and many others set to follow – likely wiping out most of 2021’s festival season.

Darryl Morris Weekly – 09.10.20 – What Difference Will It Make?

I bled a radiator this week. Not that I want to pander to toxic gender stereotypes, but I bloody nailed it because I’m a bloody man. We had a problem with the boiler. It started making a disturbing rumbling noise on Monday. After several days of doing what men also

Darryl Morris Weekly – 29.09.20 – The Tussle for Patriotism

In the last decade, patriotism has become an uncomfortable, thorny subject. It has been hijacked by the extremes. Populist political leaders, world over, have used it as a vehicle to carry people on their prejudices. And it has worked. Brilliantly. It's time to reclaim it.
