Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
I’ve been watching the ‘story’ of this over the past few months on Newsnight, and I really rather like it. A lot of comparisons have been made between The B of the Bang and the Angel of the North, but I think that The B is far more attractive and modern, and conveys a much greater sense of daring and ambition. I like it a lot.
