Trolly dolly

I’ve got a troll. Keeps posting comments about how wonderfully designed the site is and what wonderful writing is contained therein. Has he/she/it nothing better to do? Well it seems possible, since he/she/it includes a link to something that is pushing “siliconebracelets”, whatever they might be. Fraid I’m not into that sort of stuff, I think.

Anyway, if it helps put him/her/it out of their misery, this site was set up purely to experiment with another application I have been working on. Didn’t work out, so I guess this will die a death ere long.

Sorry Mr R.

Don’t mention the war …

Always gets you into trouble. Look at poor old Boris Johnson. He was trying to explain, I imagine in a lighthearted way, that the past 2,000 years of European history have been marked by repeated attempts to unify the continent under a single government.

“Napoleon, Hitler, various people tried this out, and it ends tragically. The EU is an attempt to do this by different methods.”

Suddenly the whole world and his father are in a state of extreme apoplexy. Why?

Clearly it was the Hitler thing (no one seemed at all fussed about Napoleon). And, yes, Hitler was actually trying to create a Greater Germany.

Plus ca change.
