Thanks for visiting. I’m a Northerner with an almost imperceptible beer belly who’s been living in London since 1984. Born in Glasgow in 1955 and brought up in Birkenhead, I gradually sunk south until I settled in my current position in Herne Hill. I no longer work for a living, as my wife is apt to point out.

Here I am, being a Northerner

NB: If you move to London you are a traitor and you will never be quite as Northern as you once were.

Beliefs? Trying to stick by your commitments, being loyal and generous to others, and making the best of your abilities whilst being honest about your faults. I am not a fan of the win-at-all-costs brigade or people who are perpetually angry about something or someone.

I don’t set out to offend but sometimes my irony and sarcasm can be misinterpreted. I see the human condition as unavoidably farcical. Now and again we all need look at ourselves and laugh. You are allowed to laugh at other pompous people too.

I post once a week, on Thursdays.
