If you're still reading after that here are some things about me:
I'm an avid reader and news-watcher. I never miss an episode of Question Time, and I think my enjoyment of it is probably akin to what many people get from watching football, ie. shouting obscenities at a television for an hour or so.
I don't think terms like "left-wing" and "right-wing" are very helpful, so I try not to use them, however most people would almost certainly call me left-wing. I'm a socialist, an atheist, and a staunch anti-monarchist.
On environmental issues I consider myself very green, and am a strong supporter of nuclear power, which I don't see as a contradiction.
I strongly believe in free-speech, even for things I find abhorrent. The right to say whatever we want to whoever we want is one of the most important freedoms we can have.
I would sum up my political beliefs as: Centralise economic power, decentralise political power.
I love modern art, and going to galleries. I feel extremely lucky to live in the same city as The Baltic. I'd much rather see a work that was interesting than a work that was technically skillful. I'm certainly no expert on art, and I probably wouldn't trust someone who claimed to be. I just take each piece as it is and see how it makes me think and feel.
I drink red wine, black coffee, and green tea.
I own a lot of musical instruments, but the only one I can play anything resembling music on is the ukulele. I've been playing the uke for about three or four years now, and I'm probably as good as I'm likely to get, by which I mean I can play a lot of recognisable songs and do some mild improvisational accompaniment if I'm told which key to play in.
My other hobbies include board games (me and my partner have an extensive board game collection, and often have people round for games nights), numismatics (which is the fancy word for coin-collecting, whatever, if you're not into it then you're not into it), and tea (because tea is a hobby).
There is no excuse for littering, ever.
