Some like to think of themselves as free thinkers. I'm not that structured. My beliefs are simple. Rugby is all there is.

How's this for an idea? Many years ago, the name of the War Department was changed the Ministry of Defence. I imagine this was designed to make the department seem less aggressive and more tilted toward defending the country against attack. It might be time to change back. Between scrapping some rather expensive hardware we'll be paying for for God knows how long, mothballing an aircraft carrier and pursuing aggressive ventures in Iraq and Afghanistan, isn't it now time to drop the pretence of defence? Let's just go back to War Department. There's the added advantage for those nostalgics among us who miss the wee symbols on all the ammo boxes.
