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!

Big Brother Again
Looking back through this blog just now, I was surprised how long it has been since I ranted about "Big Brother." Here are some links to earlier posts:
As regulars here will know, I am horrified by the ever-expanding size of GOVERNMENT. There is far too much of it as far as I am concerned and indeed tho' it claims to be "democratic" of course it is nothing of the sort (although "democracy" has never appealed very much to me - reasons supplied on request). My father used to say that there is only democracy at the moment one writes an X against the name of one's chosen candidate; after that forget it for five years. He was damn' right.
Returning to the theme mentioned above, I see that the great nosey-parker bill project is still alive. This is profoundly depressing, given the innumerable examples of secret material being found on second-hand cameras, lap-tops and so on. And the government is to be trusted with all our personal stuff? Ha-ha.
With any luck I shall be dead before I shall have to think twice about writing about enjoying smoking - the buggers would come down on me like the proverbial ton of bricks.
Until the next time
