Warning: This post was published more than 11 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 11 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- Factual information might be outdated.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.
It is difficult to see this news as anything but a move forward, as sceptical as some people might be. For once, I think the White House have got it right, calling this ‘potentially’ historic. But could someone please tell Martin McGuinness that the correct preposition for Capitol Hill is ‘on’, not ‘at’ or ‘in’, because it is beginning to bug me…
