The Internet can give you almost anything you want, provided you ask for the right thing.
This blog, or whatever you call this slightly feeble collection of rants and ramblings, is an attempt to do something better with the powerful platform the Internet provides. In political discussion in particular, it is now too easy to retreat into a cosy echo chamber where there is universal agreement that we are right and all the other idiots in the world are wrong. But to do so squanders the opportunity to debate and refine our ideas.
Here you will find robustly left-wing commentary on current affairs. However, I enjoy hearing views from across the political spectrum and around the world.
I live in England (I would say the UK, but who knows how long the ‘U’ will apply?) and the rest of my spare time is spent on political activism and enjoying books and music.
