The thing that I tell you now,
It may not go over well.
Oh, and it may not be photo-op,
the way that I spell it out.

This is a blog and blogs are by definition vehicles of opinion. You know what they say about opinions: everyone’s got one. You know, sometimes it seems like an opinion is a very dangerous thing to have. Indeed sometimes I get the feeling that it’s a crime to suggest any New Zealand beer is anything other than essence of pure rainbows in a glass, regardless of who makes it.
So a warning: this is my opinion. It’s not gospel. It’s not sent from on high: it’s just what I think. You don’t need to agree with it. You don’t need to value it. But since you are reading my blog, I’m going to assume you want to know what I think. If you don’t agree but value my opinion, feel free to say so. I’m open to a little friendly debate.2
Having said that, if you don’t agree, and don’t value my views and infact think I’m a right opinion, then I have only one thing to say to you: why are you here? Seriously. Stop reading this blog. Right now. Close the browser, walk away from the computer and go do something else.
Still here? Good. Now as I said, I’m sharing my opinion and as such I’m not going to water it down. But I’m also not going to deliberately set out to offend anyone. If I do I’m sorry. Apologies in advance. I swear never to set-out to be hurtful. After all, no one likes an opinion-hole.
We good? Awesome.
