Let me introduce myself. I was born in Sheffield, Yorkshire, lived and worked in London for twenty years, and now live in Glasgow, Scotland. I have just left newspaper journalism and am looking to make some money in PR and social media. This blog, my twitter feed and my websites are essentially an attempt to embrace the modern world. But as a chance to air my views and discuss world events, this seems too much of an opportunity to turn down.
I think I reflect the general views of many middle-aged, middle-class, white males in the UK — slightly disillusioned, bemused and irritated. However, the details will always vary according to personal experience. My views have been formed on the picture desks of national newspapers, where I have experienced some things first hand and many more through the eyes and ears of others. I would like to share them with you.
