It has been eight months since I launched this group blog with a motley crew of idealists. Scary how quickly time passes when you’re, errm wasting time. Anyway, there was a plan. Well, there always is a plan. As part of that plan the newly re-designed Pickled Politics will be unveiled next week.

In the meantime we are getting fatter. For a start, two new bloggers have joined us – Reformist Muslim (Shariq) and Leon. In addition, we have swallowed four bloggers: Aparita, Jay Singh, Siddartha and Sonia, and given them their own diaries. Why am I doing all this? I shall have an explanation for you soon enough.

If that did not keep me busy enough, I’ve also been working as part of an elite crew to re-launch The Sharpener next week on 4th May, day of the local elections (fingers crossed).

In the meanwhile, my latest article on CIF is something to chew on.

    [...] As I mentioned earlier things are changing around here. Sunny has (finally!) let the cat of the bag that PP is changing and I’m one of the new bloggers over there. It’s a real pleasure to join such respected company and I look forward to making my own (and dare I say unique) contribution.

    to echo Jay Singh – thanks for the opportunity and hopefully my rather caustic observations on society won’t be booed down too much!

    Sunny – well done on your article in CIF – its such a minefield that topic. makes me want to pull my hair out sometimes. really the blindness of homo sapiens with regards to ‘groups’ is incredible, why anyone can’t see what we all have in common is we like to kill each other and pretend we’re superior and better off than the next group. Really, the things people will believe about their own group. talk about researcher ‘bias’ !

    Leon – hehe ;)

    al – you shall have to prove yourself first :P

    thanks Sakshi, and Sonia – agreed. This narrow view that most people take on global issues really frustrates me too. I’d written about 1,500 words for that article before drastically cutting it down. Either people will get it or they won’t.

    I shall promise to use my blog to fight the powers of evil and Melanie Phillips. With great power comes great responsibility.
