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 Rare Occurrence

For the first time ever I have rejected a comment; this concerned my piece about Prince Harry.

As a comment, someone wrote "disgusting brit."

I have not rejected the comment because I disagree with the sentiment (which I do whether it concerns either the Prince or me).

I invite the individual, Mr/Mrs/Miss A.N. Onymous to read what I have to say about comments.

First offence is the lack of capitalisation; the second is the use of the appalling Provisional IRA expression: "Brit."

I will have none of it; as I wrote in the piece about the Prince, since it is not politically correct any longer to abbreviate "Pakistani" (or even "Japanese") I for one am not prepared to tolerate the abbreviation of "Briton."

Until the next time
