News and Musings

This is where you will find my column. Usually weekly unless I'm preoccupied with something else. Click on the drop down menu above for a list.

I'm opinionated. If you are upset by what I write, it's probably because I intended that you would be. Or because you want to be, even if I didn't intend that you would be. I'm an unreconstructed northern English, middle-class, nominally Christian, white male. If that means that you want to challenge my right to think and speak as I like, then, frankly, I challenge your right to be a part of my society. If you think your opinion is the only one that matters, then go and read something else. I am interested in your opinions but not your dogma. And if you think all English humour is designed to be racist or offensive then we are not going to be pals.

But it's also what's happening in my life, the good, the bad and the .. well, actually, there's not much that's ugly in my life. I'm a lucky bugger. And so you will find stories of life, love and the stupid things that happen to me - and my friends. We are a highly intelligent lot who manage to get into all sorts of trouble when we turn our brains off!
