WWE Universe outraged over WrestleMania 33 Snub to AJ Styles and The Miz

We are just three-weeks away from WWE WrestleMania 33. As the date approaches for wrestling’s showcase event, WWE has been busy introducing storylines to set up WrestleMania 33. As recently reported by the Inquisitr, recent editions of Monday Night Raw and Smackdown Live, have been used to set up “grudge matches” for WrestleMania. We saw Royal Rumble winner Randy Orton refuse to face Bray Wyatt. That was swiftly followed by Orton setting fire to part of the Wyatt Family compound. Unsurprisingly Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt is back on.

LOS ANGELES PUNK LEGENDS BAD RELIGION CONFIRMED TO PLAY REBELLION FESTIVAL

2016 saw Rebellion Festival celebrate its 20th year alongside the 40th anniversary of punk with a spectacular sold-out event. Over four days at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens, iconic bands from every aspect of punk across the world shared stages with new and emerging talent. And Rebellion 2017 already looks set to be no different.  Returning to Winter Gardens in Blackpool from  the 3rd to the 6th of August, the line-up is already shaping up to be another punk genre defining event.

LA punk legends Bad Religion are now confirmed to return to the festival for the first time in seven years, bringing their addictively melodic, politically-charged, high energy punk rock to the seaside punk event.

“Rebellion is by far the best punk festival on the planet,” enthuses Bad Religion (and Dag Nasty/Minor Threat) guitarist Brian Baker. “I went last year; it was so nice I saw Cock Sparrer twice! And this year you can see Bad Religion and Pennywise and the UK Subs, Sham 69, Skids, Angelic Upstarts and tons more. This is a great festival and i love playing it and I hope to see you all there.”

With every passing day, more bands are being added to the prestigious line-up that already includes such luminaries as mentioned by Brain Baker above who join the likes of The Vapors, Kent duo Slaves, The Skids, DOA, Alternative TV, Neville Staples Band,  Good Riddance, Scream (who once featured Dave Grohl), Toyah, Richie Ramone, Leftover Crack, Ruts DC and many many more.

Day tickets are now available at £60 per day and there is also the opportunity to buy weekend tickets in instalments with a deposit.

More bands, running-order and stage times still to be announced.

Rebellion Festival is an ALL AGES, family friendly event and children under 12 are admitted free of charge (accompanied by an adult). More information and tickets are available at:

Queen Elizabeth is a record breaker, the oldest and longest serving monarch in the U.K.’s history. The Mirror reports today that more often than not, the Queen has adopted just the right tone during times of difficulty, earning her popularity and entitling her to bask in the celebrations of today’s landmark birthday.

David Davis – How Not To Negotiate

This morning I caught Conservative politician David Davis on Andrew Marr’s BBC TV program.  It seems Mr Davis has just come back from Syria where he met president Assad and he was in discussion about the problems faced by Syria and how they might be resolved.

Davis made a fascinating comment, one which really stood out for me as the absolute epitome of why anyone with any sense hates politicians of whatever shade.

Davis was asked how he saw the conflict being resolved and this was his reply outlining how we might see a negotiated settlement.

“Well they have to negotiate properly, they have to do what we want.”

Let me tell you Mr Davis, that is just the sort of negotiation at which Hitler and Stalin were hugely adept.  That is not negotiation, that is dictatorship.  There, in a single sentence, is the reason why western foreign policy has turned the middle-east into a powder keg of violence and extremism.

Sadly the people of the UK have also fallen for this brand of neo-fascism by electing a conservative government.  The attitude that says “we know what is best for you so kindly do as I say” is just so incredibly arrogant and sadly it is exactly this attitude that guides government policy in our country today.

It is sad, elitist and just down right bloody wrong and yet the British people continue to bend over and say more please.  Wake up People!
