Happy New Year!

I have to do this now, for tomorrow I shall be legless by about this time. So Happy New Year to one and all. 

Two points I'd like to make are first; my equal thanks to everyone who has read the blog and left comments this year. Clearly this is what drives blogs like this onwards, and now things have calmed down a little for me away from the blog I should have more time for writing. Secondly, my thanks to other bloggers from around the web such as Think Defence and The Thin Pinstriped Line, both of whom consistently drive a lot of traffic this way, which makes the difference between this being a properly read blog vs. just some madman ranting at a keyboard.

Finally (I guess that makes it three points, so I lied to you earlier) I'd like to give a hint at what my next post is. Think Defence recently did a piece entitled "What will be the biggest threats in the next 10 years?". In the spirit of his effort to coordinate a form of joint blogosphere analysis leading up to the 2015 SDSR, I'll be sharing my mindless ramblings considered thoughts on the future of UK security, and indeed the security of the world.

Yes, I am that mad. Happy New Year!


  1. Happy New Year Chris, my glass is raised!

  2. Happy Christmas - a toast to absent friends - including the chap previously known as @IXION if he's out there somewhere!

    aka Gloomy

  3. Belatedly, Happy New Year.

    Ixion has gone off to get a front row seat for the "launch" of QE. Knew he'd come round.
