We can't wait for Charlie McCreevey's

Speaking of stealth bloggers, we've been aware for a while now of another well-known blogger who's flown under the radar[1], namely Swedish Vice-President of the European Commission Margot Wallström (see her blog here). We know that a couple of politicians here (such as Michael Turley and Damien Blake) have set up blogs, but Margot is the highest profile politician blogger we're aware of so far[2].

We have to say that we like the idea of getting some insight into the actual thoughts and reasoning of senior politicians, away from the usual scripts written by the bureaucracy. More, please.

About me

  • An early-thirties male Irish technologist living and working in Dublin, I'm a former (recovering) member of both Fianna Fáil and the Roman Catholic Church.

    I'm not a member of any political party these days, but my opinions can be broadly categorised as 'lefty' and republican. I am also a former member of the Irish Defence Forces.

    Please feel free to check out the FI Fie Foe Fum group blog, where I was once a regular contributor, and the Cedar Lounge Revolution, where I can usually be found in the comments.
