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!

More Free Speech Matters

Picture source: here

Jan Egesborg and Pia Bertelsen: these two Danish artists have an exhibition running in Berlin. This has been temporarily closed following threats in connexion with a picture that (you guessed it!) insults Islam ==yawn==

The full report is here; I have added this article to demonstrate my continuing support for Denmark's vigorous defence of free speech. I expect that Germany will follow this excellent example in regard to the exhibition, or at least I hope so.

Until the next time
