There is still work to do to update this site from my European election campaign site – but life’s too short, so I’m sure you’ll cope.
For the past few months I’ve only been writing occasionally and mainly for other people’s sites, having a holiday and doing some work.
I’ll be continuing to write here independent again of any Party line – not that I made any great effort to ask permission! I like to think that if you are straight in your view people will be mature enough to understand that we are not robots.
The Scottish Question – none of my business I know, but it is far too interesting not to make some observations on the future of a country for which I have a lot of affection and on a referendum question I consider asked and answered.
Journalism and Blog Posts
John has written for newspapers, magazines and websites. This site continues to feature many of John’s articles, including his writing on politics, travel, entertainment and his newspaper columns. Many of these articles feature on other sites around the world-wide-web and traditional published sources. The opinions expressed in these articles are those of the author and not necessarily those of the Labour Party. They include some satirical content.
John is looking forward to writing again without the tiresome business of attempting to promote a Party line.
Albion Terrace is an originals rock band in which John writes songs and plays guitar. You can find out more about Albion Terrace and keep in touch by ‘liking’ the band’s Facebook page by following the band on Twitter or if you really want to know by listening to us play live at Soundcloud. John dismisses the notion that because he is involved in politics he shouldn’t involve himself in such frivolities, “There is nothing more boring than pompous politicians who have no life outside meetings and take themselves too seriously. It’s nice when people like what we play, but if they don’t, nobody is forcing them to listen to it”, he says.
