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!

No not the clot with the faux custard pie.

I am referring in my title to Wendi Deng, Mrs Rupert Murdoch; see how she steamed straight in to give the miscreant a slap.

I dream of having a woman like that as my life companion - support, commitment and so on; are hundreds of millions necessary? Romantically, I still hope not.

Full marks Wendi, and my compliments.

Until the next time
