A good question, but one not entirely relevant to defence issues. Thus it means that yes, I've run out of time before fully forming the article that I was planning to post just ahead of the New Year. Which means it'll just come out in a day or two.
Till then, thanks everyone for making the start of this blog a good 'un. I hope 2013 will prove just as good for 'defence with a "C"' as 2012 was. Thanks for all the comments and e-mails, links to and twitter re-tweets.
On a quick note, if you see comments that were deleted by me, that's spam. As any Internet site with a comments function grows it naturally starts to attract fake comments with embedded links, which have to be removed on occasion. My personal goal is to never have to delete genuine comments, unless they're clearly just offensive or blatant trolling.
And on that note I'm off down the pub in a bit to spam the land lord with requests for "three pints of Carlsberg please mate".
Happy New Year everyone, thanks again for stopping by, and I'll see you in 2013!
