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- Factual information might be outdated.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.
This is an extremely important development, and should be topping news bulletins not buried in amongst the ‘In Briefs’. It is very, very worrying, especially bearing in mind that we’re due for a ‘flu pandemic. This is showing all the signs of being the beginning of this global crisis, and the fact that it’s now being transmitted human-to-human is a major step towards disaster.
This has me worried, and that doesn’t happen very often. Keep a very careful watch on this story.
