A new Blog Page for your “Wise & Wicked” type comments, launched 13th November 2008. The rapid growth of Wise & Wicked in a few short months amounted to almost 2,000 comments on that page, a fact that might deter some contributors from participating due to slow loading on some browsers. I surmise also that the relevance of some earlier comments might well have been overtaken by more recent contributions. I’m further, reluctant to dismount W&W as there might be some benefit in searching the old comments to recall how smart we all are and how grand is the repartee on current affairs – wise or stupid.
The 21st century ain’t changed much since December 2007 when I wrote the opening editorial leader to W&W – in fact – the planet generally is probably more stupid and politically correct than ever before. Our mission remains the same however – to register our incredulity at the antics and absurd laws and practices that our political masters will have us believe – are good for us. Accept if you will – with protest – that the age of chivalry has gone forever – accompanied by the demise of good manners, politeness and regard for those who are less fortunate than ourselves. As we Old Light Infanteers of the ’50’s shift into the autumn of our years – let us not go gently – let us continue to take the piss with remorseless abandon (notice that I didn’t write ‘gay’ abandon!) My personal editorial assistant will oversee all comments. So, I suggest that you now transfer your smartarse (non DCLI) comments to this new blog.
December 1st 2008: Early Christmas lunch for the Old Bloggers! Season’s Greetings to you all, from Ed. We in OZ hope that Christmas 2008 & New Year 2009 brings you Good Health and Good Fortune. One & All!
