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!

Double Standards Again

As my readers know I have a low opinion of the ill-conceived Euro.

The BBC reports that the new €5 note is to include a drawing of a Greek Goddess.  Fine,  but why does the BBC refer to "a goddess" when it calls actresses "actors" and uses the stupid expression "Chair" meaning "chairman"?

Double standards and stupid political correctness.

I hate it: grrrrrr

Until the next time.
