Having not finished the long-winded, political theory-heavy (and therefore excruciatingly dull) post I started this morning, I thought I’d have a hunt round the BBC News site to find something worthy of a brief musing.
But no, it was not to be. Pity the poor news teams – and I speak from some experience here – every single story is either blindingly obvious or days, weeks, months, even years old:
No news may be good news, but it really is boring. How many more months have we got to put up with 2007? It’s been one of the most tedious news years in, well, years… The only excitement has been the long-overdue retirement of a politician who announced that he was going two years ago, and a bunch of floods that overstayed their welcome in much the same manner. (Though with rather less loss of life and property damage than Blair caused in Iraq – boom boom! – see what I did there?)
Something interesting from me soon, I hope – but the world’s really not giving me much to play with here…
