Hmmm, not sure what to put here.
Well, I've been reading various blogs for a while now, and in the current British spirit of "Me too", I thought I would start one of my own, full of posts with my own personal prejudices, feelings, rantings, and (hopefully) a well written, insightful comment or two (but don't hold your breath).
For the record, I'm not a doctor, paramedic, copper, soldier, teacher, nurse, or any of the other respected professions that seem to proliferate in the blogsphere. Mind you, neither am I a politician, spin doctor, journalist or lawyer, or any of the other parasitic professions, whose practitioners should really be given a nice opportunity to have a smoke in the sunshine leaning against a handy, if pockmarked, wall.
I am a reasonably well educated, moderately intelligent (if I do say so myself, spelling mistakes not withstanding) member of the general public, a subject of Her Majesty, British born, of Irish ancestry, raised in England. Oh, and soon to be a father, so all of a sudden, my own little insular world is about to be turned upside down, inside out, and my interest in the rest of the country, and the disastrous way things are being run has been piqued.
