On Friday 29 October 2010 I did a post “2001 And All That” looking at the situation as I saw it in that year, not long before 9/11 happened. So this is a retrospective of a retrospective, if that is possible.
Eleven years on just how much progress have we made and how different, or alas, the same, are the members of the current administration?
It is a post on the slightly long side. Given the mess that we then found ourselves in and given the gathering mess at present, optimism is not the mood of the moment.
But at present, there are some in the media who have begun to realise that all is not as it should be and never will be.
