Devizes Melting Pot

“Protection. Conservation. Restriction. Deep ecology. Give me deep technology any day. They don't scare me. "I'm damned if I'll crawl, my children's children crawl on the earth in some kind a fuckin' harmony with the environment. Yeah, till the next ice age or the next asteroid impact." (Moh Kohn, The Star Fraction)/ "This is the fight between God and the Devil. If His Grace is with God, he must join me, if he is for the Devil he must fight me. There is no third way" King Gustavus Adolphus

Happy New Year!

New Year's Eve revellers see in 2010
Hundreds of thousands of revellers have gathered in temperatures close to freezing to see in the new year in towns and cities across the UK.

In London, tens of thousands of people gathered along the banks of the Thames to hear Big Ben strike midnight.

Fireworks erupted at the London Eye in an eight-minute display and there were also fireworks in Cardiff.

Thousands joined Hogmanay celebrations in Glasgow and Edinburgh, where temperatures fell as low as -6C (21F).

There were no civic events in Belfast.

Meanwhile, celebrations were cancelled in Inverness because of severe weather.

The London Eye's £313,000 firework display was cut by two minutes this year, helping organisers save a total of £70,000.

It was a clear night in central London, where partygoers enjoyed a comparatively balmy 3C.
