I’m reducing the amount of politics I blog about here, in part because it doesn’t bring me any joy talking about the latest scandal, or how I think a policy or politician is heading us in the wrong direction.

Update: No, you know what? Nuts to a journalist who wants to summarise my entire generation as being ignorant. I don’t want to soil my personal space with his screed, and I don’t want to waste your time reading it. A special shout out and thanks thanks to long-time reader Hales for this insight.

I've redacted the entire rest of this post. It’s likely already archived in a few places if you really want to look, but I wouldn’t bother.
