The views expressed on this website are my own and represent my honest opinion on matters of public importance. Some people may agree, others may disagree. Some of the articles are critical of people, newspapers and others, and I accept that this may cause annoyance, even offence. But at all times I have tried to keep them within the bounds of 'fair comment'.

I offer a right of reply, which will be published here, on this page. 

If there are errors of fact, I will correct them as soon as possible after they have been pointed out to me.
