Yes, I know.
It's been far too long, but, I'm back. For as long as I can, at least, and probably not daily, but, hopefully regularly enough that I can write decent posts about things more than the trivial.
So, let's start with what's happened since last September.
Well, as you can imagine, quite a lot, quite a lot indeed. We've had heartbreak, heart-warming moments, death, birth, Christmas, My 18th, Friendships formed and lost, smiles, tears, music, film and theatre, birthdays, and so on and so on.
But enough about me! How are you?! I hope you're well.
I realised, the older I'm getting, the more bitter I'm getting. Not only bitter, but sort of, cynical. I think it's more cynicism than anything else. For example, whenever I watch the news, I seem to just despair at how unjust the world seems to be, I know, quite a miserable opening for the first blog post for a while!
Just a few examples recently, today on the news, retired businessman Christopher Tappin is to be extradited to the US for allegedly selling batteries to the Iranians for nuclear missiles. This man doesn't have a criminal record, British judges say that the extradition is legal and the European Court of Human Rights won't intervene in the extradition.
Meanwhile, Abu Qatada, once described as 'the right hand man for Al-Qaeda in Europe' was released a few days ago, and it was claimed he couldn't be deported as 'he wouldn't get to face a fair trial', whereas of course, Mr Tappin, with a chronically ill wife, is to stay in an unidentified US jail while Mr Qatada is freely roaming the streets of London. At a cost of £10,000 a week to the UK taxpayers.
I dunno, is it just me that thinks that this is.. well, wrong?
Not 13, not even 23, but 33. Twice the age of most of those accused of the rioting.
So FUCK YOU MEDIA. FUCK YOU AND YOUR FUCKING PRE-JUDGEMENTAL ATTITUDES. FUCK. YOU.
Joke's on you.
Anyway. I'll leave you all to your days.
