Opining on opinion and opinioneering in his new online newspaper thingy, Jim Chapman has this to say:
"What is an opinion worth? As you will see elsewhere in the Voice of London, opinion plays a significant role when we discuss city hall politics....I have had the opportunity for almost two decades to comment publicly on the things I see and hear around me. Radio, television, newspapers, magazines, all have afforded me the very great privilege of a soapbox from which to share my opinions, critical and otherwise...."
And what do we see at the bottom of this vigorous defense of Jim's right to speak his piece?
