A Little Hiatus

Readers, forgive me but I must take a few days away from the computer to engage in some half-term shenanigans with my boys.

I wish you all well and let me take this opportunity to thank anyone who has donated or is donating towards my efforts. It is very much appreciated. JP


Hiatus – back Monday

Dear readers,

I will be away until Monday, so there will be a little hiatus in my threads. Well, not exactly away, but busy looking after my two boys + splendid hound.

I wish you a marvellous weekend in the interim and send a huge thank you to my generous patrons. I may not be raking it in like Goldman Sachs but the money does make a difference, so thank you!

Best wishes,


Happy Holidays!

2019 is shaping up to be a year of stalling global growth, resulting in more geopolitical fractiousness and quite possibly Global Financial Crisis 2.0.

Meanwhile the climate looks to be on the cusp of tipping points galore, so enjoy your creature comforts whilst you still have them, my shrewd readers, and loyal and noble patreons.

I wish you all a very happy holidays!




A temporary hiatus – back 29th October

Just a heads-up that I’m going to be away for the kids’ half-term shenanigans so won’t be posting much until 29th October, although of course if something very significant happens in the interim I will find a way to do so. 
Hopefully everything will be, you know, absolutely fine in the interim. Zero-carbon, plastic-free, infinitely-sustainable economy here we come!
