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!

Have they been reading this??

Just a bit of wishful thinking on my part, but in fact I am delighted to report that Denmark is threatening a more robust response to some of the Islamic crackpots around the world.

This time it is the unpleasant (obviously - think Darfur) Sudanese president Omar al-Bashir who is under the spotlight.

According to this article, al Bashir was quoted as saying that "the Muslim world should boycott Denmark because of the cartoon." If it were not for the deeply tragic circumstances in Sudan/Darfur I would be splitting my sides laughing at the spectacle of an arsehole like this attempting to occupy the high moral ground. In response, Denmark is considering cutting its substantial aid to Sudan.

Regular readers will know which cartoon: it's here as well!

I applaud Denmark's firm stance in support of its free press. Good luck to them.

Until the next time.
