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!

And next some rather powerful Conservative propaganda...

The pundits are predicting a hung parliament, so I suppose very soon there'll be the whole thing to be gone through again!

Best of luck, and of course,

Until the next time
