Well, I’ve been thinking of writing a blog for sometime now, so at last I’ve taken the time to activate a site here which may (will) stimulate me to hit those keys.
This blog is intended to be political in the broadest sense, controversial most of the time, at least that’s what I hope. It’s not just ranting & raving though, as I hope also to post about good things when they happen. Above all a forum for free or lateral thinking on many of the problems besetting the World.
Starting back in the 60’s when I first joined the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament I have been involved in many radical organisations and am still involved to this day, although I admit I have not tried getting into nuclear bases for some time. I would now consider myself as a ‘Grumpy Old Man’ but passionately believe that grumpy old men and women, banded together, can still change the world albeit with some help from those whose limbs do not as yet ache and whose eye sight and hearing are not slowly fading.
I’ve been too busy for most of 2011 but intend to make more effort in 2012.
