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 Sympathiser

I recall seeing Joe Jackson performing in London many years ago. He is an original talent, and by chance today I have discovered that his originality is manifested elsewhere too.

He describes himself as a moderate smoker (about 10 cigarettes per day) and he appears to be en colère with the vast amount of anti-smoking nannying going on these days. And it's not just the nannying: he has spent, he says, four years researching the topic and has produced an e-book entitled "Smoke, Lies and the Nanny State". It is downloadable and extremely interesting reading. Link

I shall be trying to add his tunes to my playlist here to demonstrate my support!

His smoking pages are here.

Until the next time
