I really should write shorter posts

Sorry. The last four can be summed up thusly

1. If you have a strong opinion about new anti-terror legislation, including detaining people without charge for two months, let me know and I'll try and tell the Home Affairs Committee tomorrow.
2. I am not sure anti-terror legislation should be used to criminalise the morbid online posturings of silly adolescents.
3. Zoe's book ''My Boyfriend is a Twat '' is very funny and will make an excellent Christmas present
4. The internet and how it is used reflects human behaviour, and may be a threat to mediocre journalism in general and ''commentariat elite gatekeepers'' in particular and but let's not all panic, eh.

I hope this saves time and thank you to everyone who has emailed me their thoughts since I started blogging again.

Post what you want.
I wish I had it in me to keep up my blog...
You make me think!
What more can you ask from humanity but "think"

But surely there are already too many soundbites in the world? Your writing is passionate, eloquent, well-reasoned and thought provoking. The world is not a simple place and sometimes it needs many words to make sense of it. I greatly enjoyed the long post. The more the better....

But of course, as Graham says, you should post what you want.

Thanks for your writing, as ever.

It's great to have you back - I agree with all the above - the long posts are well worth the effort - I was particularly taken with the SlipKnot comparison - you have a knack of crystallising thoughts that I haven't the wit to express. I hope someone makes the Home Sec read your blog.
Best wishes

oh Rachel... Long posts are wonderful to drink tea with and just relax into

I wish I could write such long posts but they only come when Im really peed off with something.
