About

I live in Merseyside and this blog is home to my personal musings.

I love many activities that keep the old grey matter in great shape and put a smile on my face.

Music wise my first loves will always be, Hip Hop, Jazz Funk, Funk, Rare Groove, Soul, Nu-soul, Old-soul, yet to have a name soul! To be honest I think there are far too many classifications given to music, in reality there are only two. There is great music and there is shite music, and I love great music!

I am passionate about local community and local prosperity. We have so much power, we just need to realise that and then use it.

I believe that every person should be seen as having huge amounts of potential, not something with a £££ sign above it’s head to be exploited by others, be that Corporations or some third sector organisations who claim to want to help them.

I also believe in volnteering, not because of a “give something back” mentality, as that presumes you “took” something to begin with, but because helping others is the right thing to do.

Politics wise, I’d have to say left of centre, though I’m not certain I can ever vote Labour again after their last stint in Government. Iraq, giving even more free reign to large companies to ravage our Country, and that’s before we even get started on PFI!
