Hi and welcome to Interlogue!
Like many, I am concerned about the state of world media and politics, which have been drowned in an impenetrable language of spin and manipulation. My own views are fairly typical of urban mainstream Australia – I’m a social liberal with a humanitarian streak who believes that people should take responsibility for their own actions and that good government policy helps the economy and society.
I’m hoping that this journal can become a worthwhile source of opinion – although I can never guarantee that it will be anything more than my opinion, only that I will stand up for what I believe in and try to sort the facts from the whiz and blur and spin. I’ll sometimes get it wrong. That’s why you’re welcome to comment if you disagree with something I say.
Minor housekeeping point – prior to August 2006 this blog existed in various different forms and places, but was amalgamated and launched with the new name. Some entries are still to be imported.
