The idea for this blog came about when I heard about a boy called Oscar who at 10 told his father he was feeling sad because it seemed life was an unwinnable game – there were so many problems in the world and nothing seemed to make things any better. Was it even worth trying, he wanted to know.

This blog will look at how ‘the game’ might be won… It will look at ‘new’ politics, bringing together my interest in activism, feminism – with a look at the role of cafes thrown in.
