Here is my second go at blogging. The first disintegrated in the excitement of general election campaigning last year. It doesn't help that I'm not very good at getting into a routine of writing every day. I've never kept a diary or journal and when I do write it tends to be in bursts when deadlines loom large.
But I enjoy reading blogs, with the occasional thought that I could do this too – so here goes. I hope to deal with some of my interests from Lib Dem politics to music, rugby and my campaign to abolish the apostrophe. Let's see how this one goes.
A word about the title – 'Eaten by missionaries'. I imagine most who find their way to this blog will be familiar with the quotation from Rev. Spooner. Although not quite a conventional Spoonerism, it is perhaps the funniest of his entries in the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations.
It also captures unintentionally a greater truth about the way sometimes the most terrible acts are committed by people who have only the best of intentions – something that Liberals such as myself do well to remember!
