Welcome to my new website

Many of us over 60 are counted out when part-time jobs come up despite our collective wisdom and abilities.

To counter some of this prejudice I have dispensed with sending my CV and have instead created The Complete Picture, an animated ninety second overview of my life to date @




The Labour Leadership (non) Contest

You are here: Home / Blog / Politics / The Labour Leadership (non) Contest
We have four male candidates all from the same gene pool:

David Miliband (favourite)
Ed Miliband (second favourite)

Ed Balls
Andy Burnham

and one one-off gene pooler:

Diane Abbott

The four male candidates usually have a combination of the following:

Oxford or Cambridge educated
Think Tankery backgrounds
No.10, No.11 or DCMS Policy wonkers
Teaching and or research including Harvard
Shipped-in to safe seats in 2001 or 2005
None have had their hands dirtied by working in Manufacturing, the City or overseas

They are truly representative of the modern Labour political class; if the current rules regarding their appearances in public are maintained over the next three months then we might as well vote now. They are quickly becoming pointless.

Q. Which candidate has published his or her manifesto for winning in 2015?
A. None

I rest my case.
