About

I started this blog in January 2017. It’s a place for me to write about current events, world politics and anything else that takes my fancy. I will undoubtedly make mistakes and I apologise in advance if I upset any reasonable people who object to what I have to say. However, as Ricky Gervais says┬ájust because you are offended doesn’t make you right.

My rules for what I publish are based on these two quotes:

“I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.” Evelyn Beatrice-Hall (often attributed to Voltaire)

“Publish and be damned.” attributed to Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington

If you don’t like strong opinions, strongly expressed then this is not the blog for you.
