Twenty Questions to a Fellow Blogger Part CXVI: Cityunslicker
What made you decide to start blogging?
What is your best blogging experience?
In general, getting to know a lot more people through initial contact in the medium
And your worst?
Getting grief from Mrs Slicker about spending too much time blogging
What do you regard as your best blog entry?
There are 3 of us on the blog:
I think Nick Drew's on how the dominoes fall is superb. Bill Quango's Brownadder is great. Goldman saves the world for me.
What inspired you to go into politics?
The Conservatives have stated that there will be thrift and cuts if they win the next election. Does this mean cuts in public services?
Whoever is the new government may well have to cut spending by up to 10%. If they do not, then the IMF will do it for them.
For all right-wing talk of how well Margaret Thatcher helped the economy, the Conservatives lost badly in 1997. That surely can't all be John Major's fault and how do you attribute that defeat aside from "We were in power for eighteen years"?
The Tories messed up with the ERM entry and the collapse of Sterling in 1992 was never forgiven. Economic incompetence loses elections. The Tories also lost their way with small scale sleaze and a failure to renew the party with new ideas. The similarities to today are astounding.
Is there anywhere abroad which you haven't been to, that you would like to visit?
Japan - for the culture shock.
Is there anywhere abroad you have visited, that you would love to revisit?
Who, excluding the present leader, do you regard as the best Conservative Party leader, and if different, the best Prime Minister?
William Hague. Despite his previous bad experience as leader he is a man of great intelligence and wisdom. he also now has great experience of the good times and the bad. he would be a great Prime Minister.
Which political figure has been your greatest inspiration?
Churchill, his vision and courage saved us.
