Some closing comments on events last week.

Friday May 20, 2005
I’m not too sure about the libel laws of England, and so I would point out that all of the following facts are already in the public domain either in published WWDC papers, or published in The Wiltshire Times today.

Free speech alive and well; as long as it isn't anti Lib Dem!

Thursday May 05, 2005
