Aaaargh!!!


I have no intention of making this blog spot a political platform, but every now and then one has to give vent to one's spleen.  Don't you feel sometimes that certain prominent citizens of your own country make you feel embarrassed that they are prominent citizens of your own country?

    1. I ought not to have been surprised, either. I'm certain I have for some time been hearing faintly the jingling of thirty pieces of silver from the direction of Wellington...

  2. I daresay some of your wargaming readers who work for NSA, GCHQ, CSE,DSD and GCSB may see it differently!

    1. Aye, well... There are times I feel that our political leaders are insisting upon its citizenry to adopt one of two attitudes: [a] 'My country is always right'; and [b] 'My country, right or wrong.' The one is just plain arrogant and stupid; the other led to the Nuremburg trials. Well did Sam Johnson observe: 'Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.'
