I spotted this bogle sign succumbing to the elements on a pole by the tram tracks. It’s done well to last since march.

It’s rumoured there won’t be a bogle next year. Which is a shame. I was thinking of cycling it again (until my bike got vandalised. Anything good enough to ride 70+ miles on wouldn’t last long outdoors.)

apparently rag can’t get enough volunteers these days, which is sad. I’m almost inclined to suggest some sort of old farts rag to utilise the experience of we old hacks who can’t help but turn up to events. I don’t know exactly what we’d do, mind, probably stand around and talk about how things were done in our day.

Which would be no different to what we do now, to be honest.

"We need nuclear like a hole in the head"

Michael Meacher says what I’ve been thinking about Blair’s headlong charge toward new nuclear power stations.

Today Mr Meacher, a champion of renewable energy, said: “I fear that David King has really taken on the role of spin doctor by suggesting that there is no other way by which we can meet our carbon reduction target under the Kyoto protocol.”

“That is completely untrue: it certainly can be met if we go down the renewables route.”


He said nuclear power was hugely expensive and he pointed to “unresolved” problems over waste. “We need nuclear like a hole in the head,” he warned. “The fact is, the 21st century, in the end, is going to be powered by solar.”
