Why this Blog?

A place where I can lament the changing times; for eccentric comments on current affairs and for unfashionable views, expressed I hope, in cogent style; also occasional cris de coeur largely concerned, I regret to say, with myself.


I welcome your comments, so do please write. Please note however that all comments are moderated prior to publication. Whilst I fully appreciate that life can be frustrating, nevertheless, abuse, SMS language and illiteracy will not be tolerated!

A Health Unto Her Majesty


I have taken the liberty of using Her Majesty's Royal Standard to head this posting; I trust that the occasion of the celebration of her Diamond Jubilee will be seen as justification for this solecism.

It is normal on such occasions to look back over the past sixty years; many have done so and like to point to progress etc., etc.

Typically the "progress" since 1952 is - at least in my view - mixed.  I doubt that people in general are any happier than they were then.  And it seems that our politicians and major public figures are no better - if as good - as they were then.  

Only the Queen continues above it all.

That appalling creepy liar Blair, destroyed the House of Lords, a wonderful institution with 800 years of tradition.  I hope that any interference with our constitutional monarchy occurs long after I am gone from this vale of tears!

Long live the Monarchy - and a health unto Her Majesty!

Until the next time.
