There are so many blogs around, why add another?
My purpose in setting up this blog is to provide a platform for rational debate about political issues which concern us all but which are ‘debated’ in other media in a superficial or irrational way.
I want to move away from the knee-jerk reaction; from the automatic ‘are you for or against this’; from the rude, abusive, and potentially violent language often found in the comment sections of many blogs and websites.
I want to be able to think about the issues; to explore the complexities; to discuss why there are arguments for and against.
Maybe no-one will be interested in reading this or commenting on it; we’ll see.
