Pole the other one

The Guardian Online is asking readers for their tips on Krakow, a fantastic city that eight of us descended upon like a bunch of beer-hungry Vandals just before Christmas.


My favourite comment from the Guardian article was this one, from a chap (I'm presuming it's a chap) who obviously thinks of himself as the Polish Arkan
"Never come to Krakow. Enough of all these foreigners in Poland. We are not uncivilised barbarians like the other Slavs. We need no pity from foreigners. Leave our country now and never return."
There's no excuse for racism, obviously, but maybe this is part of the reason the guy is so pissed off....

I, of course, behaved like an angel.

In the beginning...

OK, right. Hmmm. I can't do any fancy-dan stuff yet like put pictures on the blog or even a list of links, but I might as well start to put up some content till I learn how. That could take some time.

I can't tripe properly...

Fuckety fuckety fuck. First post and there's a typo in it. And I have no idea how to edit it out. This blogging stuff is a hoot, right enough.

Back To The Old Mouse

Jonny's been on at me for a while to enter what I believe is inelegantly titled the 'blogosphere', so this is it. Expect: ramblings about socialism, Mark E Smith, newspapers, Commodore 64 computer games, Doctor Who and Morrissey.
Don't expect: it to be any good, especially technically. As Malky once observed, I'm the kind of person who would try to shave with a mobile and use a laptop to try to make a toastie.
