This blog however is a personal project to allow me to continue to write for a hobby. So at this point I think it could include opinion articles, features, and news reports on issues I find interesting.
As a person, I used to hold strong left wing political views. But while still holding principles, I have mellowed. I am no longer the placard waving protester I used to be.
I'm gay, aged 24 (nearly 25), with hobbies including running, swimming, watching my beloved Everton play football, and playing poker.
I have broad topical interests in news, politics, the environment, LGBTQ rights, anti-racism, and people's campaigns for justice.
My old blog was called The Red Needle, but now it is has been left to drift in the depths of cyberspace as I can no longer log into it. It was more overtly political, but now I feel it is time to try something different.
If you have a story you'd like to talk to me about, get in touch. I'm always keen to meet new people and listen to your stories and hopefully then write them or tell them in a compelling way.
