I have decided to take a short career break as the company I was working for was ‘not for me’ and I needed to make a hard decision as to whether or not the job came first, or home life and job satisfaction was paramount. I obviously decided that the later, rather than the former, was the case and I finished there last Friday.
To all my former colleagues, I wish you well with your endeavors and hope that all goes to plan for you! For me, this is now time to take a short break, re-charge my batteries and consider the options available to me – of which there are a few thankfully!
Having spent the past 12+ years working in the public transport sector, I am interested in seeing what opportunities arise for me within this field, however, I am also looking into a few possibilities which will encompass my skills, knowledge and experience from within the voluntary sector too.
However, one of the first things we will be doing is booking a holiday to Thailand for next month, so we can go and sort out some things back there, catch up with family and friends, and generally have a relaxing time too!
Will let you know how things are progressing in due course.

An open note to Spotify – when, oh when, are you going to add support for the Blackberry 9700.
This has been promised since last year, and yet nothing has happened although you have added numerous other phones and OS’s to your list.
I would renew my premium subscription if you let me use my phone…this is one of the very few times I miss my iPhone…

Good news – not only will this blog stay online (after considerable thought) but with a desire to refocus and do something new, I have a new site which will be available in a couple of days time
Not too much point in clicking on it yet, as the domain is in process of server propagation and will not be available generally until Friday.
So what will this new site be all about?
In no aprticular order or preference:
- LibDem activities in London
- Reports about our GLA AM’s and what they are up to
- Guest contibutors and articles from AM’s, MP’s and councillors
- London campaign issues
- and more things which are all plastered on post-it notes on my wall at the moment
If you are a London LibDem and want to be a contributor, have thoughts on what should be featured (a campaign you are interested in etc) or have any comments in general, please post a reply or contact me on Twitter @ChrisLibDemNW1 and lets talk about it!
I look forward to hearing from you all soon.

After watching the outcome of the election, and the realisation that a hung-parliament was the outcome, I realised that although we had stopped the Tories from achieving power, that there was the very high probability that they would come to power via a coalition.
If this was the case, how long would the coalition last? 6 – 12 -18 months>
What concessions would the Tories make?
What would we have to give up?
Would we get any cabinet posts?
Also, as a sideline, what happened to the claimed youth vote (first time voters) who where enthused by Nick Clegg? Did they vote?
