About Max

Charlatans, crooks, and conmen.

Businessmen and politicians, who have dispensed with facts and have overdosed us all on lies in their quest for money and power.

So-called ‘activists’, who claim to champion virtuous fightbacks and who relentlessly and who relentlessly pursue their own fake and dishonest agendas on the backs of the vulnerable.

Society is awash with these villains.

Welcome to the new normal.

Time to call them out.

Big Ole Balls

Maya Forstater has just won her appeal at the Employment Tribunal, which has doubtless led to a whole swathe of women scratching their heads. And their big ole hairy balls. In the greatest twist, worthy of a literary genius, the doyenne of fiction JK Rowling has been established as the standard bearer of non-fiction. Who’d […]

Teenage Kicks

The cricketer Ollie Robinson has been yanked out of his England debut because of some boundary-breaching, turdist tweets that he had posted a decade ago. At worst it was throwaway bravado or attempts at humour through extreme shock value, and to be fair, I’ve heard worse from your average grim gaggle of giggling girlies in […]

Cosmetic Surge

It seems like every man and his dog – or rather every person with or without biological testes and their companion – is necking hormone replacement capsules or mindlessly cheerleading for those who do. The question I have is where did all these trans activists come from? The hardcore loonies have always been stumbling about […]

Knee Jerk

Reportedly, Gareth Southgate is to hold urgent talks with the England squad about taking the knee. In all truth, he’d be better off talking to them about taking the piss. That performance versus Austrian opposition would have had Neville Chamberlain’s paper fluttering in the wind. In elite football terms, we’re not waving but drowning. As […]


When I were a lad, parents would buy their kids pet hamsters in order to introduce them to the crushing reality of bereavement. Nowadays, parents whip up excitement around England’s football tournament campaigns to the same end. Yes, it’s that time again when for a few weeks we can deceive ourselves that incompetence and cluelessness […]

Porto Ball Bug

It’s the UEFA Champions’ league final today – an all-English affair, which is taking place in Porto. Fewer than three weeks ago, it had been decided to switch the event from Istanbul because Turkey is on the UK’s travel ‘red list’. So, let me get this straight. In the midst of a pandemic when this […]

Brass Neck

President Biden has been banging on about George Floyd’s legacy and has invited the multi-millionaire Floyd clan to the White House for canapés and blather. Apparently, one of the members has snubbed the invitation because they are ‘not happy’ with the proposed policing bill. You couldn’t make it up. It’s like the Veruca Salt scene […]

Fact Off

Dominic Cummings has blown the lid off the transparent Tupperware container that is Government. Apparently, the COVID era was characterised by chaos and crap decision making. Tell us something that we don’t know. Tellingly, pundits are now self-servingly seizing on DC’s perspective. Government supporters who had previously lauded Dom as a genius have fallen back […]

Long Shot

In 1978, an episode of The Professionals concluded with an aeroplane carrying an international terrorist being diverted to a hostile Arab nation after one of the passengers had faked a coronary. We can hardly now take the moral high ground with Belarus, because this ruse was conceived by one of our own, George Cowley. It […]

Beat Beeb, Yeah!

Princes William and Harry have been steaming into the BBC this week, which is fair enough. They’re having a pop at those who had deceived their Mum. Martin Bashir still hasn’t surfaced, which is also fair enough – he is a bottom-feeder after all. He’s still struggling with the long-term effects of COVID or, as […]

Pro Test

After yesterday’s match against Fulham, Paul Pogba and Amad Diallo unfurled a Palestinian flag and paraded it around Old Trafford. I thought political statements were banned in football? So sensitive about this were FIFA that the home nations were once punished for displaying a remembrance poppy, which is arguably not a political symbol at all. […]

Every Cloud

Every cement-dust cloud has a silver lining, and that is arguably the case for Jeremy Corbyn this week. For many years, he has lived under the intangible spectre of antisemitism allegations and to this day remains suspended by the Labour Party for that very reason. Of course, anybody with a scintilla of cerebral vim must […]

Ooh, Ooh – The Israelites

It looks like the handbags are out in the Middle East in a simmering conflict that is going to go on and on until the planet finally overheats and dies. Predictably, Israel is the object of international condemnation for its ‘disproportionate’ response to Hamas rocket attacks. The logic seems weird: the Palestinians are going to […]

Stella Heights

Keith’s excruciating week has not got any better – he tried to sack Angela Rayner and ended up giving her three new jobs. Of course, he was lambasted for bombing out a working-class woman, but his critics failed to acknowledge that these were precisely the characteristics that had propelled her to such stellar heights in […]

Ropey Handle

Oh dear. The way things are going, some sizeable chunks of that Chinese rocket are likely to rain down on Keith’s gas guzzler. As matters stand, you could probably cut through the atmosphere at Labour HQ with a knife, let alone giant shards of Beijing tin can. And this time, there’s no convenient Corbed ball […]
