I’m Wrong

Published 17 January 2021 in Activism - 0 Comments

“I was wrong,” isn’t something you hear very often. Particularly from people in power, or folks who have gone out on a limb espousing a belief. It’s far easier to persuade someone to make a new decision based on new information. That way, they can be right now, and they can also believe that they […]

The Rejected Flags Of Europe

Published 4 January 2021 in Activism - 0 Comments

Between 1949 and 1955, the Council of Europe received over 150 unsolicited flag designs, each from keen individuals hoping to represent the unification it symbolised. I hope to write about the rejected flags of Europe. Although an extremely specific piece of design, flags have the tendency to raise the heart rates of creatives. A beloved […]

How I Join The Landed Gentry

Putting the ‘mental’ in Environmental, I have signed up to a scheme that enables people to buy shares in an Environmental project. The scheme is called Longlands Common and a good friend, Allan, is involved with it – I believe he sits on the board. It came about that people can now purchase shares in […]

Thoughts On VE Day

Published 7 May 2020 in Activism - 0 Comments

Today is the 75th anniversary of VE Day – Victory in Europe in the Second World War was achieved with the ultimate sacrifice by many. I am grateful to my forefathers and the ‘Golden Generation’ for their sacrifice. But, here is my gripe – fifty, sixty, seventy-five years later and we are electing far-right and […]

If anyone has a right to be mad at Harry and Meghan it’s the people of Sussex, who have been left leaderless without their Duke and who are now defenseless against incursions from Hampshire and Kent. — anne victoria clark (@annevclark) January 12, 2020

Letter #17

Dear Andrew Jones MP — I am writing as a concerned constituent. I am a blogger. I have the liberty to write what I want on the net. My blog is at www.ijopona.org. However, I am writing about people further up the ladder. People who I admire and respect. Fifty-three Commonwealth heads of government are meeting for […]

We seem to be having a ‘wholesome’ day here at Ijo Pona HQ. Kathryn is at a Church Parade with her Girl Guide group and I am left to my own devices. Rather than just head back to bed to catch forty winks, I decided to try and put my time to good use. That […]

Letter #15

The Repeal Bill is one of the most important pieces of legislation in a generation. It will rewrite our laws after we leave the European Union. Those laws affect every one of us — our friends, our families, our children. Laws against discrimination and privacy invasions. Protections for workers, LGBT+, disabled and older people. Rights we fought […]

I have had a dislike of Dr Martens since Emma Wilson kicked me in the shins with her sensible footwear. However, Dr Marten seems to have been having a bit of a resurgence and I have gone and procured myself a pair. They look amazing but I might get beaten up wearing them. I got […]

Dear Andrew Jones, First of all, please let me wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I have gained a lot from our correspondence throughout the year. I am signing off 2017 with a final letter to you when I should be working. I work as a freelance website designer so I […]
