Labour MP Jo Cox has died from her injuries after being shot 3 times and stabbed in a horrific attack that left her bleeding on the pavement. The attack happened this afternoon with eyewitnesses claiming a man in a baseball cap shot her three times with what seems to be a "homemade gun". The Guardian reports: Armed officers responded to the attack near a library in Birstall, West Yorkshire, on Thursday afternoon. A 52-year-old man was arrested in the area, police confirmed. The suspect was named locally as Tommy Mair. Police added that Cox, the MP for Batley and Spen, had suffered serious injuries and was pronounced dead at 1.48pm on Thursday by a doctor with paramedics at the scene. Police also confirmed a man in his late 40s to early 50s nearby suffered slight injuries in the incident. They are also investigating reports that the suspect shouted “Britain first”, a possible reference to the far-right political party of that name, as he launched the attack. Police are understood to be talking to at least one witness who claimed to have heard the attacker shout the words, and the motivation for the incident will form part of their inquiry. The chief constable of West Yorkshire police, Dee Collins, said there was a large, ongoing police investigation, with heightened visibility patrols in the area. She added that weapons had been retrieved from the scene, including a firearm. There was police activity in the hours after the attack at a semi-detached house on the Fieldhead estate in Birstall. Thomas Mair, 52, is the registered occupier of the address, according to the electoral roll. Police have not officially confirmed the suspect’s identity.

In this day and age, it baffles me that so many people are still falling for the political puppet show. Donald Trump this, that, and the other; Bernie Sanders is going to save the world, etc. When are we going to wake up to the glaringly obvious fact that unwitting or otherwise, these are all characters in a grand screenplay designed to give us the illusion of choice? It also serves to keep us distracted and dare I say it, entertained. Oh, and it’s a great way to play us off against each other. When we put our hopeful mark on the ballot slip, all we do is confirm that we are still hoodwinked. I suspect this is, as well as the pretense of democracy, the main reason that voting even still exists. It’s a head count to see how many haven’t cottoned on to the reality that they do what the hell they like, no matter our preferences or how many hundreds of thousands of protesters march the streets. Your vote counts… for nothing I’m not saying that Bernie Sanders doesn’t have good intentions but I see only two possibilities: a) he is allowed candidacy so that it seems that we can rely on some savior to clean up the astronomical mess that is the ‘system’, or b) however convincing an actor, he is a plant for the same reason. I would bet my life savings that he is not getting into power, so for all intents and purposes, his followers are tuning into a tiringly familiar load of hot air. Remember when Obama had not yet been elected? The waffle that came out of that guy’s mouth… and what did he actually do? Bomb the hell out of kids and hospitals in the Middle East, for one thing. Was anyone really surprised? Just look at his predecessors.

The South- London quintet, formally known as The Bulletproof Bomb, are comprised of Joel Douglas on Lead Vocals & Guitar, Thomas Butler on Bass, Robbie Cottom on Keyboard & Vocals, Mike Hendry on Guitar, and last but certainly not least, George Thompson on Drums. Amidst the release of their latest track, ‘Little Miss London’, and a change in name, Bulletproof have embarked on a 10-date tour. Halfway through the tour Bulletproof stopped off for a gig in Portsmouth, for the first time nonetheless. With a rapturous sound, Little Miss London, appears to be another fan favourite to add to their set list. Though most of their songs are often 3 minutes of high tempo guitars and a barrage of drums, Little Miss London is more of a downbeat, ska driven tale of boredom in a suburban club, as Joel, the lead singer, says, “It’s about a nightclub in Sutton. We went there one night and it was terrible so I wrote a song about it.” Little Miss London first appeared on Youtube when the band played it for the first time live at Reading and Leeds on the BBC Introducing stage. Guitarist, Mike Hendry admits that, “When we first started playing it, I used to make up what the solo was and change it each time.” Singer Joel interjected with, “Don’t you still do that?” Jokingly Mike replied, “No not anymore”. So far on the tour the band had covered the north in towns such as Sheffield and Leeds, which were both sold out, Barnsley and Stoke. The Portsmouth gig was taking place in the rustic venue of The Loft, which is situated just on top of the pub, The Kings Arms. Though they had played many stops that are usually considered staples for a band of their size; Sugarmill in Stoke, which is always a favourite of the band’s to play, and Oporto in Leeds, they probably wouldn’t have played a venue with a décor that their nan’s would be proud of. Their newest single Little Miss London was received quite well. But it was interesting to find out that they all preferred playing different songs live. “Five Green Bottles is always good” said Robbie, to which the band agreed. There is also a new song to be released soon, “We’ve got this track called Limbo, I like playing that one.” Joel said. “I like playing Siege it’s always a bit fun” said Thomas, but George agreed with Joel, “I’m with Joel, Limbo’s a bit more groovy.” In the least diva way, the band’s rider consisted of Chilli Heatwave Dorito’s (the best ones) and a crate of beers (requesting anything but Carlsberg). A part from that though, the only common occurrence with regards to a “tour ritual” as such was that, Mike was often late. Keyboard player, Robbie Cottom, said: “Mike being late would be one of them… He did once miss a flight”.

I was elated to hear the news that a band I have followed solidly for two years had signed to a major label such as Universal. I remember the first time I heard Fickle Friends, it was in May of 2014. I was nearing the end of my first year at university and was revising, but at the time I was procrastinating and decided to see what new hot topics I could find. It wasn’t intentional; I was actually listening to a band from my hometown of Liverpool, Lives. But the next track that played was ‘Swim’ by Fickle Friends. Ever since that moment I was hooked onto their groove driven nu-pop sound. Immediately after my first listen I actually wrote a blog, intending to share it with my friends, who at this point trusted my judgement of new bands. Since that moment, Fickle Friends have elevated from a band that was playing a few shows up and down the country, to one of the most blogged about bands. I had a similar feeling when watching Fickle Friends to the one I had when I was watching The 1975 before they got signed. It was only a matter of time until a label picked them up, and whatever label picked them up was inconceivably making the right decision. Funnily enough, the first time I saw Fickle Friends live was in a sound check. I was actually opening for them, though I doubt they remember me. I was extremely gutted that I had to leave early and by doing so missed them finish with my personal favourite ‘Swim’. That was in the Railway Inn in Winchester, the next time I saw them was in a marginally smaller venue, but they had undoubtedly gotten, somehow, better. It was in the odd surroundings of The Clarence Tavern in Gosport. The place was a pub at the front, but where the beer used to be brewed in the back was where the venue and stage actually were. The band played some new stuff, but there was an awful lot of buzz in the crowd. I’m not ashamed to say that my self amongst my 20-something friends were singing aloud… And dancing to their songs, amidst a crowd with an average age of 14.

David Bowie, Ziggy Stardust, the advantageous legend of music, though his appearance was often one of an extrovert, his silence on most media platforms was one of an introvert. His songs influenced musicians throughout the years such as, Joy Division, The Smiths, Guns ‘n’ Roses and the 1975. His flamboyance had him coined as the “music chameleon”. Instead of relating to current trends, Bowie made them, and for many years dictated the style of pop music and many other genres. But now, the star man will be waiting in the sky.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has came out this week, and amidst the excitement, it's breaking all sorts of records. Unsurprisingly, the critics love it, the fans are in a frenzy over it and indeed everyone's bored hearing about it. But the franchise, which has spanned from 1977, to now in 2015, the press have had their doubts. And of course, The Daily Mail in all its stupidity has published some ridiculous stuff around the newest addition to the franchise.
