No stamina, these Tory youngsters

Fresh from writing a brief post about Denis Healey, still with it as he embarks on his tenth decade on this earth, I notice that another of those Tory bloggers has given up the ghost. Only a few weeks ago, BrummieTory stopped blogging to spend more time with his examinations - but his blog has so far failed to reappear. Now, PragueTory has thrown in the keyboard as well.

I know that posting has been a little sparse of late - life sometimes intervenes as the day job and family commitments drag me away from blogging and practical politics - but I'm still here after three years and I've got no plans to stop quite yet.

What you are basically saying is you need to get a life! Something that should have been suggested to you a long time ago!!

If you blog for too long you're in danger of defending the indefensible. Still no comment from you or Albert Bore on Councillor Afzal and Zulfikar Khan.

To blog effectively you don't just need time but focus, too. Forgive me for asking, but what's yours/your blog's?

PT - I don't know what went on in Aston during the 2007 elections, I was busy elsewhere. Albert can look after his own mobile phone. Frankly, the election petition sounds more like sour grapes than anything else, but I've come to expect that from the LDs. As for my focus - a broad swathe of politics, with a specific interest in Birmingham covers it. I have always said that I write this because I want to - not because I'm paid to, not because anyone asks that I do, just because I like doing it. If others like to read it, then that's a bonus for me and polishes my ego. If they don't, then I don't lose sleep over it. I'm not into stats porn like Guido or Dale (or even the Stirrer). As Peter Snow used to say - this is just a bit of fun.

Anonymous - I feel like I have two or three lives running simultaneously. Thanks for the interest.

Well I enjoy your site and you can probably imagine how few Labour bloggers I like.

Political Hack - well done for keeping going for three years. That's a long time!

Sometimes it's good to take a break, sit back and look at the world objectivly, that way when you do blog it's going to be about something worthwhile rather than whatever partisan nonsense first fill your head in the morning.
