I will not be using this blog from now on but for those who know Mr. Upton, he will be updating it.


Proof…from the Guardian.

An interesting article from Al-Jazeera.

An interesting analysis of the ‘Arab Spring’ from Robert Fisk, (The Independent).

A random page which may help you decide…

By all means add your own but I think the article covers the main defeats..I’m only surprised that Britain lost. I won’t vote myself until I’m over the shock.

Is 2011 similar to 1848?

A long, long time ago at a university far, far away, I came across Eric Hobsbawn. A historian with forthright views on socialism and capitalism. He has just written an article comparing the two years, 1848 and 2011. Well worth a read for budding historians, as events in Egypt, Syria, Tunisia etc. are still fresh in all our minds. I would advise that one reads the wikipedia page on the events of 1848, (yes, I know…I shouldn’t recommend wikipedia but I have done!), if you do not know about them.

1848 from wikipedia.
