About Me

I've had to change this page as the information was becoming dated.  It's obvious, really, as we get older the information is going to change!

No longer new to blogging, I have two sites up and running.  I decided on two different blogs because the content is totally different.  On this site I have chosen to write about current affairs or news-worthy items.  My other site is more light reading and not so serious (Shoghun's Space if you want to visit it).

Now retired from the British Army, I served over twenty two years before an accident forced me to be medically discharged.  No longer able to do the things I used to enjoy doing, I had to find new ways with which to keep myself occupied.  I always fancied writing, thoughts of novels and fiction have been with me for years.  I just never had the time to sit down and write.  That has all changed.

As I mentioned, I decided to write about my views on current affairs.  I am well read and considered fairly intelligent and so I use that and my experience in order to form my opinions.  I try to be as objective as I can and not distort the article with media hype and the like.  Unfortunately, none of us can be truly objective and occasionally my personal views come through.  I am only human, after all.

Being British, the articles will have a British slant or bias on them.  I have worked around the world with numerous foreign services and have a limited perspective of how other nations view the world.  I try and include all the insights I have observed into my articles.  Sometimes I am harsh but I will support my comments or observations with facts and not just rant about something.

My hope is to give whoever reads my articles another viewpoint on issues I think need looking at.  I try and stick to whatever is topical but sometimes I will write about something that I think should be highlighted.

I hope my articles are well received and easy to understand.  I hope that whoever reads my words learns something or, if not, writes a comment on whether they believe I am right or wrong.  At the end of the day, I am still learning and if someone can help me along that road, it will be appreciated.

I have also added adverts which I hope you will click on.  I am hoping that I will be able to get some revenue from this site as I will not be able to work again.  Thank you.
