The Slightly Less Silent Majority

The Ed has sent me the comments left to my Silent Majority post, and I thank all of you who responded to my largely rhetorical question of who reads the blog.

It is a pleasant surprise to realise that such a broad spectrum of people take the time to pop in and read; there's no pressure at all on me to keep you entertained then...!

While it would be wonderful - if naive -  to think that anything I wrote could prompt people to abandon deeply held views, that I have nudged some of you to think more deeply about the issues I raise on the blog is gratifying.

Thanks, one and all.


  1. I wouldn't be too sure about being unlikely to shake deeply held beliefs, if only because a lot of our more deeply held beliefs are built on quite shaky reasoning. It can be dangerous to look too hard at them - and one comment that strikes at a serious flaw can work away in the back of your mind for a long time.

  2. It takes courage to do what you do here on your blog Ben, and to take the line you do.

    Whatever anyone thinks or says about you, you are a brave man for real.

  3. Ann - You have certainly made me think Ben
