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!

Prince Harry and the Taliban

Prince Harry has today been reported as making some rather unprofessional remarks concerning his time in Afghanistan as a co-pilot/gunner in an Apache helicopter.

Accordingly the Taliban, via an anonymous spokesman has described the prince as 'cowardly.'

The same un-cowardly Taliban who demonstrated their courage and bravery in shooting 14-year-old schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai for campaigning for education for girls?  Oh! that was the the Pakistani Taliban, so that's all right then.


Until the next time
