Just thought I'd make your comments box a little more like the one your article will soon have. When were you asked to contribute?

I have commented Over There.

I've had a couple of (large) glasses of wine though - sorry.

What you said is pretty much what's been on t'radio.

Hope it all remains calm!

Hey Tim, extremely glad that, all things considered, it seems comparatively peaceful for you there. From what I saw, people are wandering up to tanks to have their picture taken, like a Sunday trip to the Imperial War Museum. Hope it stays that way.

Dave Hill said...

Your CiF piece is very good, especially in view of your haste. I recommended you, you know...! Like others above, I hope it stays calm for you all there.

Joel: Got the request about 1230 BST (1830 here). Filed about two and a half hours later.

Spin: Thanks, mate. Think I stirred up a few hornets' nests.

FN: Will do, but Kirin's Japanese. Will Singha do?

Anubis: Yes, a touch of the novelties about the whole thing.

Dave: Many thanks for that... I was wondering how they pinned me down...

Nice work Tim. I tried to digg it, but then I got lost on the internet and I've only just found my way back. Sounds like things are calming down now, anyway. If they ever weren't calm in the first place.

patroclus said...

And now I've just waded in and started a spurious argument with the wrong person.

Note to self: stick to own blog.

I'd forgotten how, gobby that CIF lot get. Oh well...

Pashmina said...

Nice CIF piece, Tim - can't quite bring myself to wade into the debate over there due to the whole "gobby" thing.
