Warning: This post was published more than 9 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 9 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- Factual information might be outdated.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.
Overheard in the pub yesterday: “…That’s all very well, but countries can’t go round banging people up for questionable reasons based on questionable evidence against the view of pretty much every other country in the world, whether they’re planning poxy show trials or not!”
The conversation had nothing to do with the Iran Crisis. They were talking about Guantanamo Bay.
