However, I am now looking forward to the next
Could I just quickly say "thank you" to all of you who have been so kind (I'll put links in later): MatGB (when are you going to write a piece for The Kitchen, eh?), NHS Blog Doctor (John has been recently, rightly recognised as a god), Tim Worstall (I liked him a lot. And thank you, Timmy, for my Portuguese adventure...), Pete Gray (also a very nice man), Deogolwulf, The P-G (I think that he's still assessing me. I think that it was the long-hair wot dun it. However, he also came up with some very interesting economic points about the Citizens Basic Income which I hadn't considered and definitely want to air*), Arthur (thank you for lunch, I enjoyed it so much. Are you up for a repeat? My treat this time. Why not bring the P-G?), Misha and all Rotties everywhere and, very recently, Katy Newton (whom I recommend by the way). All of these people have been very kind, or simply cheerful and interesting over the last few months in particular.
So, I'm no longer in a relationship: time to concentrate on the company. I have high hopes fpr my business and now it's time to concentrate on them. I will, Boris-style, ask for your feedback: I trust your judgement. Those of us who write and think here, in the political blogosphere, often disagree; I do like the fact that we can disagree and yet still be, I think, a community. There are a very few of my friends who can give as good as they get (Rhetorically Speaking, Tiny Judas (who should blog a lot more) and The Fluffy Econmist, amongst others, I know to be exceptions to that statement). However, in the meantime I have just imbibed vast quantities of pure MDMA and am feeling pretty good, frankly. But not tremendously coherent...
So, cheers all! Here's to a better 2006!
