The blogging thing has been prompted by the frustrated voices in my head that want to scream at people every time I read the news recently. Seems like if you’re a compassionate person with a slightly left-of-centre worldview, the world is pretty gloomy at the moment. So I’m going to write about it from the inside, and see if maybe it helps me (and hopefully other people too) stay sane while the world continues on its hell-in-a-handbasket trajectory (where did that saying come from by the way? Surely there are worse vehicles to go to hell in… for another post).
