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 11 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.

Many thanks for your understanding.
Tony Blair today defended his decision to take the country to war and accused the opposition parties of campaigning on Iraq because they have “nothing serious to say about the issues facing our country for the future”.
So says the Grauniad. But, in response to Mr Blair, isn’t the gravest issue for our future the responsibility we place in our leaders to ensure our own security? And if this election will result in the election of a Prime Minister who can declare war at will, isn’t it important to know that he would only do that for the best of reasons? It’s possibly the most important issue about our future.
And, besides, the other parties have said far more than Labour about their plans for the future of our country. And their leaders weren’t orange when they said it. And where have your wrinkles disappeared to? Botoxia?
