Happy New Year!

By ATWadmin On December 31st, 2006

I am sure I speak for my fellow ATW writers in wishing everyone a happy 2007.  As I reflect on this passing year, I do so with considerable sadness as I, again, have thoughts of my dear departed friend firmly in my mind.  2007 will, rest assured, see lots of output from ourselves, though as I am undertaking a fast-track senior care management diploma between February and July, my contributions here will probably be reduced.

2007 marks the 10th anniversary of the worst government this UK has seen in modern times.  It will, hopefully, also see the start of a more principled political strategy from Cameron’s Conservatives.  There will be another fragile attempt to create a government in Northern Ireland based on a co-opted coalition containing insurrectionists; elections in Scotland and Wales; the arrival of Gordon Brown at Number 10; and the ongoing battle with the biggest enemy of our time: radical Islam.  All these and more will feature so sit back and enjoy the ride.

Take care!  I will return on January 2nd.

    Your flag selection omits the French "tricoleur". Why should this be so? 🙂

    To deal with your other points:

    "2007 marks the 10th anniversary of the worst government this UK has seen in modern times."
    No, nothing could be worse than the Major government, ever.

    "It will, hopefully, also see the start of a more principled political strategy from Cameron’s Conservatives."
    Fat chance! Opportunism has served Cameron well so far, so why change?

    "There will be another fragile attempt to create a government in Northern Ireland based on a co-opted coalition containing insurrectionists;"
    We agree on this. I think it will collapse within 12 months at most, assuming it gets started.

    "the ongoing battle with the biggest enemy of our time: radical Islam."
    Agreed. I fear there will be at least one terrorist "spectacular" from the head-bangers. Iraq will get far worse and the mullahs will plough on towards their A-bomb, untroubled by "sanctions".

  2. Happy New Year Andrew and all at ATW.
