It was time I started a fresh blog.

I had known this for some time and had made sophisticated plans for it, plans which assumed a luxury of time I did not have. After all, I was busy changing the world. Or, at least, finding other excuses for not getting a proper job.

Yet things kept coming along which I wanted to write about. They kept coming along and going unwritten. It concerned me.

So I decided to take a break from making excuses and create the simplest blog I could find. (After all, sooner or later I would get round to tarting it up.)

Here it is.

[I should perhaps add, on the offchance that this blog thrives sufficiently that anyone returns to its first post to discover the circumstances of its origination, that I write this entry with Sebastian Mary Harrington singing at me from a chaise longue, to the tune of the 12 Days of Christmas: Five poll swings, four Douglas Hurds, three Tony Benns, two William Hagues and a Social Democratic MP...! Make of this no more than it deserves.]
