This blog is no longer being written. This is because I took up a job in Information Technology working on medical records where I have access to people's medical history and I decided that this occupation is incompatible with writing a political blog on the internet because I have access to sensitive data on people.
It was a bit crap anyway.
The blog has been backed up on a hard drive and all the posts have been deleted online. I did not delete the blog outright, or restrict access to it, so that I could leave this message. I do not want any "left wing activists" to think that they won and I gave up. I have not given up at all.
I will be continuing to read and comment on other people's blogs and discussion boards (under my various pseudonyms), and assisting people where their beliefs and aims are broadly in line with mine.
