Happy New Year. I've made my new year resolutions. It wasn't difficult as most are quite similar to last years. One new one is to take less note of London-centric chatter. Another is to continue to diversity my news sources. Happily, listening less to the BBC's news broadcasts with their in-built 'progressive' bias will neatly combine the two.
This quote from Jonathan Swift fits well: "It is the folly of too many, to mistake the echo of a London coffee-house for the voice of the kingdom." *
