Warning: This post was published more than 8 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 8 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  • Factual information might be outdated.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 my first concise mobile post. Well, possibly my first concise post full-stop. I’m not sure I do short! «

The Sun says 99% of voters favour capital punishment. Wills said "Voters don’t decide issues, they decide who will decide issues". Good job. «

Mr Martin shouldn’t resign over his use of public funds. He should go as he’s a bad Speaker who doesn’t uphold the rules of Commons debate. «

It worked… And I’ll polish it up so it’s a bit tidier tomorrow, and hopefully so that the format won’t need manually editing. So far, so good!

The Sun says 99% of voters favour capital punishment.

That’s cause they probably think that the punishment should take place in a capital city, such as London.

That statistic is utter rubbish.

It may seem like utter rubbish, but it was the result of their poll of 100,000 Sun readers – see here.
