It’s been nearly a month since I last updated the site which is far too long an absence. Sadly I’ve been unable to find the time recently and have just left the blog to fall into disrepair. Hopefully all that’s going to change soon. I hope to make the blog more prominent, entertaining and up to date.
But before all that, by neglecting the blog, I’ve missed a few big events, so here’s my views on some recent news!
Jenson Button: Formula One World Champion
Who thought we’d be reading that this time last year. It’s been a phenomenal year for Jenson and Brawn GP, one that’s also been really good for the sport, showing it doesn’t always have to be between Ferrari and McLaren. Jenson’s acted like a champion all year and he is undoubtedly worthy of the title.
Many have said, and it is true, that the title was won in the first six races, but I fail to see how this makes it any less of a victory. Jenson has battled strongly through the good and the bad and still won the championship a whole race early. Congratulations to him because this year he has really shown the true racer and sportsman that many have seen in him for years.
Just a small note about Rubens Barrichello. I do feel sorry for F1’s ‘number two’ diver as I think it could’ve been possibly a greater achievement if he had taken the title. But it’s important to remember that at the start of the season, Rubens was out of F1. Thanks to Brawn GP we’ve seen that the most experienced driver in the field, can still pack a punch!
Nick Griffin On Question Time
If you follow my twitter you’ll have already seen some of my views on this. Firstly I’d like to say it was 100% the right decision by the BBC to include Mr. Griffin on the panel. Like it or not, the BNP are a real party with supporters and deserve to be heard. We’re not a truly democratic society if we exclude anyone.
But how did he come across… well good and bad. It’s true that Mr. Griffin didn’t storm off the set and tried his best to remain composed despite the criticism leveled against him, but that’s where the good ends. He managed to back himself into a corner and contradict himself on many occasions. He lost pretty much any respect he had when he said he couldn’t explain his holocaust remarks.
Maybe it was a bit of an ‘attack Nick Griffin show’ and maybe the BBC did edit it with a little bias, but I think Mr. Griffin did most of the damage himself by simply laughing off every question. More of a Peter Griffin…
Muse Win Best Act In The World
OK, so it’s not really in the popular news, but at long last Muse have been recognised for the genius they possess. They were voted ‘Best Act In The World Right Now’ at the Q awards earlier this week.
And next week you can read an exclusive review of their new stadium tour right here on The RHP!
