Important notice: It is expressly forbidden
to use in any manner any original information, images or content in
this website without the source being so attributed or for any purpose which
is, or could reasonably be construed to be, for profit.
Some information in this website, notably certain
graphical information, is used as part of the service conditions of relevant
service providers (for example, the 'Blogger' button); no responsibility

This is a website free of pornographic text and
images. Robust language is however sometimes used; this does not include
profanity - ever.
Please note that, when posting comments in my 'Comments'
area, or posting entries in my Guestbook or sending me e-mail, I welcome
your comment and criticism, whether positive or negative; you are asked,
however, to note that the use of profanity of any kind in expressing such
comment will not be tolerated. Further, comments which may reasonably be
construed as being racist, sectarian or homophobic in nature or which appear
to have been made primarily to promote commercial activity will likewise
not be tolerated. Anonymous abuse masquerading as negative criticism is not
welcome, though - courtesy costs nothing. It is not essential to leave an
e-mail address when leaving comments, but a minimum level of courtesy is
hoped for and I do my best to reciprocate.
Links - I will not normally exercise my editorial
right to expunge details of website links placed in my 'Comments' area or
in the Guestbook by visitors unless, in my sole judgement, they link to websites
which are primarily pornographic or obscene in nature or which have as their
primary aim the promotion of racist, sectarian or homophobic beliefs or appear
to have been included for the purpose of promotion of commercial activity
(this will also apply to any reciprocal links in my website). Any link left
at the foot of a message in my 'Comments' area or Guestbook should be to
a website owned or operated by the person leaving the message; links to websites
with which the person leaving the message has no connection will in all cases
be deleted as they will be taken to imply misrepresentation. However, for
the avoidance of doubt, it is expressly stated that no liability is accepted
for the use of any reciprocal link or link placed in my 'Comments' area or
Guestbook by visitors.

The links I include are to other 'blogs' and websites
which I consider worthy of mention. I endeavour to include a variety of 'blogs'
which comment regularly on current affairs and politics, in terms of the
locations of those who post them, and their points of view.
I happen to have [what I consider to be] a moderate
'right-of centre' view on many things, but whether someone classes him- or
herself (or others do) as 'right-wing' or 'left-wing' will not be a major
consideration for me. Provided the reasoning is fairly presented and cogently
argued then I will consider them for inclusion - 'extremists' of whatever
kind are highly unlikely to be considered.
Weblogs which hide under a veil of 'anonymity' and
most specifically those where there is no transparent e-mail link to those
who purport to post to them will under no circumstances be included, however
amusing or interesting I may otherwise find them. I will mention briefly,
and in passing, the names of blogs which fall into this category, without
providing a link to them. Update - with effect from January 2005:
I am modifying this part of my Links Policy. In future I will link to blogs
which otherwise meet my links criteria, even if the writer does not provide
clear information about him- or herself. I have come to believe that my existing
policy has forced me to exclude from my blogroll a number of well-written
and fascinating blogs, many of which I nevertheless follow regularly, using
my Bloglines membership to scan their RSS feeds. My intention is to remove
what I have come to believe is the illogicality, in practice, of my earlier
