What this blog is about and what it is not about.
What this blog is about
This blog is a place for me to practice and develop my writing and editing skills, to discuss issues and events in the politics of the Liberal Democrats and the wider world, to help me develop and explore my own thoughts about things of concern or interest to me, and to share the above with friends, colleagues and random passers by.
I expect to be blogging about UK politics and world affairs, political history and theory, liberalism, the Liberal Democrats, some of my experiences as a local councillor and other interesting things that happen to me, and things that I have come across or got excited about that I would like to share with others.
I welcome comments from anyone and hope that I will only need to delete comments rarely.
What this blog is not about
Although this blog will flow from the things that are happening in my life and I hope will reflect my personality it is not intended to be an intimate and personal online diary of my life. You’d find a lot of it very dull if it was.
Again while this blog will reflect my experiences of politics in Luton I intend not to comment directly about issues of local political controversy, the work of the Liberal Democrats on Luton Borough Council, or my work as a local councillor in Challney. I am very proud to have been elected to serve on the Council of the town of my birth and equally proud of what the Liberal Democrats in Luton have achieved. However, while I will talk about some aspects of what it is like to be a councillor in the town, I am not intending to use this blog as a platform to engage in local political debate. There are other places to do that.
Again, I will welcome comments from anyone about the posts I make and I am happy to get involved in sensible debate about things happening in Luton but comments that seek to engage in local political controversy will be deleted. If you want to raise an issue with me in my role as a local councillor please do contact me via the Town Hall.
