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- Factual information might be outdated.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.
You will probably have noticed the appearance of the MakePovertyHistory white band on the site. I plan to keep it there for the rest of the year, to show my support for this particular campaign, which I have been following closely since Christmas.
Regular readers will know that I’m normally quite cynical about large charity events, but it’s worth noting that the MakePovertyHistory campaign does not want money, it simply wants to raise awareness of an issue, and garner public support for a very worthwhile cause. I urge you to visit the website, read about the campaign, and, if you think it is worthwhile, then show your support.
