I won’t be at Octocon this weekend…

…but I was never planning to be, not having much enjoyed the previous one I attended in 2007. (Where I failed to witness any of the alleged incidents.)

has been given no choice in the matter. (Further discussed chez Cheryl here, by here and by here.)

A pretty good example of public relations Fail. It is amusing that on Octocon’s committee page, the short bio of the Press Officer states first that he “is looking after PR affairs for Octocon” and then goes on to say that he “feels strongly that most PR people deserve to be liquidated”. I think further comment is superfluous.

    I think it would be a smidge revisionist to blame the Southern Ireland Senate for the demise of the Southern Ireland parliamentary system – I think the Sinn Fein boycott was rather more significant!

    As for the Northern Ireland Senate, this just shows the need for the second chamber to have a different basis of representation than the primary chamber, if it is to act as an effective check.

    In effect, I guess I have the same attitude towards democracy as I do to chocolate fudge cake – it is a wonderful thing. But there’s still such a thing as TOO MUCH.
