    Abseiling the UK’s Tallest Sculpture

    Monica: Woop woop, the day I had been so excited about for the past week, Sunday 22 March 2015 had arrived, the day I freefall abseiled down the ArcelorMittal Orbit, James Bond styley. And to add to the excitement I would be sharing the moment with fellow ONIN reviewer Martin Stocks.  The day was set to be awesome!! Martin: Although I’d woken up with a stonking headache after a few too many… tomato juices the night before; I knew this day would be an excellent one. As I arrived into Stratford I immediately saw the imposing ArcelorMittal Orbit dominating the…

It is only when I try to peel my sweaty long underwear off at the day’s end, that I marvel at how sore my body is. The vows I make to stretch never seem to amount to anything as…

    Should You Vote on May 7th?

    For the past few months I’ve been interviewing MP’s about the General Election. I’ve never liked or trusted politicians and I’m currently, and always have been, particularly disenfranchised. Does it really matter who gets in? Would Labour really be any difference to the Tories?
