Blogging a noisy and socialistic view on politics, security, and whatever may take my fancy.
"All the world now is in the Ranting humour" - Samuel Sheppard, 1647
Putting aside DD's objections to the phrase, stopped clock, twice a day and all that...They gain some accuracy over the usual purveyors by thinking in a slightly more fine-grained (and less in thrall to round numbers) way when they define generations...But... I was born in 75 and you're not telling me (in the British perspective) that I have lots in common (for example politically) with someone born in 82. The first political struggle I was really aware of was the Miner's Strike - and I'm not saying I understood it all, but I saw my part of the world devastated by Thatcher. Someone born in 82 never even knew that that world I saw devastated even existed...
