"Definitely one of the best party and protest sites to come out of the UK. Updated weekly, brilliantly written, bleakly humourous, and essential reading for anyone who gives a shit. And we all should." - Radiohead
Here's links to take you straight to those long-forgotten recesses of this site which might otherwise be impossible to find. This site is under (re)construction: more will be added to this section soon.

SchNEWS Gandalf 6 Trial - Nov 1998 - read about the trial from 1997-98 where six people - five people who wrote for the radical magazine Green Anarchist plus the press officer for the ALF (hence GAndALF 6) were arrested and charged with 'conspiracy to incite criminal damage' for reporting direct action.
Worst Britons - May 2003 - In January 2003 we had the idea of doing a 'Worst Britons' poll, to form the basis for a satirical article in our next book. Then, after we'd put the competition up on this website we found out that Channel 4 were doing the same thing - and even using the same name (the only difference was that their Britons had to still be alive). We thought that had blown our idea, and promptly forgot about the online poll we had set up, though meanwhile plenty of people voted online. Channel 4 broadcast their results and it was so piss weak (Jordan coming in at no. 2...) that we thought we'd kick ours off again. Here's the result.
Bilderberg Papers - 1999 - Don't ask us how we got hold of these - "This booklet is an account of the 1999 Bilderberg Meeting and is distributed only to participants of this and past conferences and to prospective participants of future conferences.
