Malcontents calling truth to power

About / contact

The Stirrer

While we like to think we still adhere to anarchist principles, over the years, a number of differences have seen us moved beyond the margins of the movement. The truth is that we’re politically homeless. So be it – at least we have the freedom to think freely and ask difficult questions without being hauled over the coals!

What gets posted up on The Stirrer blog ranges from our thoughts on the fourth industrial revolution and the ongoing geopolitical clusterf**k we’re experiencing through to political activism, community activism, the failures of local government, planning and much more…

We’re not everyone’s cup of tea and understand that people will disagree with us. That’s fine. We encourage healthy, open discussion. On the other hand, we hate cancel culture. Despite differences, if an issue is important enough, we’re willing to put them to one side to work with other groups. It’s not all or nothing with us:)

The Avon Heckler

Fed up residents who want to hold councils in the Avon region to account and get people stirred up enough to start fighting back against bluster, bullshit and incompetence. The same applies to public transport operators, utility companies, housing providers and the like… It’s calling truth to power but hopefully keeping you entertained as well as getting inspired to take action:) Content note – we do swear a bit! Putting up with the shite we get from those who presume to rule us and ‘provide’ us with services is enough to make a saint get sweary…

In the interests of transparency, before we moved down to the West Country, we lived in the south of Essex and this is the blog we used to run: The Thurrock and Basildon Heckler.
