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!

The terms in the title refer of course to the raison d'être of such allegedly sinister organisations as the NSA in the US and GCHQ here in the UK.

I imagine that with the crisis in Ukraine caused by the corruption and incompetence of Yanukovich, the enthusiasm of thousands of ordinary Ukrainians, and finally the absurd and megalomaniac empire-building efforts of Tsar Valdimir, the SIGINT and COMINT merchants must be very busy indeed - and actually I think that that is a very good and necessary thing.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it Mr Clever-Dick Snowdon and your sandal-wearing pals at the Guardian, after all every dog has his day doesn't he?

Until the next time
