Redesign

So the old theme for this blog was starting to look tired, so I’ve given it a slick new look and a wonderful background image of a sunset over Battersea.

 

I welcome people’s thoughts.

 

Now, if only I could get my private personal blog up and running, as opposed to this, my public one!

Time keeps on slipping, into the future.

So, we have two things to discuss.

One – the future of this blog due to development number two.
Two – the fact I now work for Macmillan Cancer Support, yes, that’s right, full time, real deal, awesome employment. Unsurprisingly, I am quite pleased.

I’ve been at Macmillan five weeks now, and I am still enjoying the work, the challenges and the people I work with. Not just because they bring in baklava. Oh no. But partly. At some point I may write a bit more in-depth about my role and my hopes for it.

But, as for this blog, I’m still feeling a stronger urge towards micro-blogging, as WordPress makes me feel like I should be writing something worthy for the ages and time is not on my side. Regardless, I will be having a think about it.

Disturbing article about the threats Wikileaks founder faces

Whether you like him or not, Julian Assange is a journalist. People who have called for his execution effectively are calling for his murder. He hasn't committed treason. He is not an enemy of America for publicising embarrassing secrets. He didn't steal the information, he provides it. In which case he could be arrested for something relating to espionage. Any attempt made on his life would be attempted murder.

Background

So a bit of background first (or third, seeing how it’s my third post)

You can find out more information on who I am and what I do on the “about page”. The purpose of this blog is to allow me to write about my experiences in Parliament and so on. As I value my privacy, I wanted a blog separate from my personal “ranting” blog (and away from my twitter, my facebook, etc). Oh and so you know, I never just make a post and leave it. I’ll always go back and add things and ruin it. So bear that in mind if you want to spread the article around, it’s subject to alteration.

If you’d like to contact me about anything feel free to drop me a comment and I’ll get back to you.
