Thoughts for 26th February 2008

close

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  • Factual information might be outdated.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.

“Local Authorities spent £1m bidding for the cancelled Super-Casino,” according to http://www.topaussiecasinos.co. Will Government refund it so that local money can benefit local people? «

Hmm, maybe an explanatory link at the end of the post would improve the format? I’ll change that if I get a chance…
