Don’t worry. I wrote this a few days ago, and do have better things to do today.
I want to wish you and yours a very happy Christmas. I also want to say a big thank you to the regulars who contribute. This blog does provide a forum for you to make your points and help win important national arguments. It is much richer for the diverse views and characters that populate it.
I look forward to many of your remarks. I find Dennis Cooper’s forensic reading of the EU documents most helpful in a public debate where too many opinion formers fail to read the source documents. Javelin often gives us good insights into financial markets. Peter Van Leeuwen bravely tries to explain the workings of the EU in a more favourable light to challenge many of us. Bazman makes us all think with his down to earth voice for modern welfarism. Uanime5 winds many of us up with a strange mixture of intelligence, odd ball comments and errant “facts”. Conrad Jones weighs in with an alternative view.
So often Alan Wheatley, Lola, Zorro, Sue, a different simon, Barbara Stevens, Electro-Kevin, APL, Mike Stallard, Bob, Brian Tomkinson, Gary, Rebecca Hanson and Alan Jutson come in with good insights and contributions. Then we have the distinctive voices of Lifelogic, Singleacts, Disaffected, English pensioner, Lojolondon,Tedgo, Oldtimer, Outsider, libertarian, Qietzaple, backofanenvelope and Figurewizard, who combine to provide wry and sceptical commentary on how we are governed.
It all makes for a lively forum, and an eye catching site that is read widely by opinion formers.
A Happy Christmas to one and all.
