After years of drunkenly haranguing friends, colleagues and, on one occasion, a like minded girl on a night bus with my feminist, socialist views, I have decided to take my thoughts to the appropriate forum. Since my job is reading news all day, every day, I am immersed in current affairs and this is my chance to answer back, or at least offer my thoughts. Whether you find them entertaining or valid is up to you. There will be a bit of politics and feminism but hopefully it will not be dry or off-putting but more immediate and tongue-in-cheek. There will also be my pick of the funniest and/or most bizarre stories that I happen across on my daily trawl through the world’s news. There might also be a little touch of fashion and style, celeb and culture comment and music reviews. The “start up your own blog” advice said to stick to a niche topic you know well… which is probably good advice, but I don’t want to limit myself. Also, after more than four years of reading news for a living, what I know well is the media and current affairs. I hope you enjoy.
P.S. Although I am taking my need to opine to the web, I can’t guarantee I’ll stop being a last-orders philosopher.
