Post 101


Portsmouth Point blog has just passed what we hope will be the first of many important milestones. Mr Priory’s post on his romance with the sea was our 100th blog post. Reaching this milestone would not have  been possible if it was not for the many contributors to the blog who have written such a wonderful range of articles, reviews and reflections.

For this 101st post, I thought I would highlight just a few of the editor's favorite articles from the blog's first century; it has been a tough choice:

Recently Michael Roderick has written an article about why the Government's policy on drinking is essentially hypocritical: http://portsmouthpoint.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/against-fanatics.html

During the Republican Presidential primary season Will Wallace wrote a politically obituary for Rick Santorum:

Over Easter Madi Barker looked at different depictions of the scene after Jesus' resurrection in art:
