Thoughts for 26th February 2008

close

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 10 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how 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 very well have changed in the 10 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

Any fool can learn, but without innate wisdom he’ll merely become a foolish irritating egotist. True intelligence is knowing when to use it.

If the investigation into MP’s expenses can suddenly be expedited by months, was it planned to be slow or is it now going to skip things?

“Local Authorities spent 1m bidding for the cancelled Super-Casino”. 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…
