It's nearly four months since I quit blogging. So many people have been kind enough to tell me they have missed my daily jottings, and indeed, I have missed them myself. My life just hasn't been quite the same. Indeed, I'm sure you won't think it pretentious of me to say that since I left, the whole blogoshere hasn't been quite the same. It's been a bit like Take That without Robbie, hasn't it? Admit it, your day hasn't been as fulfilling without being able to read my Top Ten List of Top Ten Lists, or me asking why, oh why oh why so and so shouldn't be strung up from the nearest lamppost. OK, you can still read those magic words "On my LBC Show tonight..." and little Grant does his best with the Daley Dozen, but it's not as good as when I did it, is it?
Which brings me to the point of this post. Despite there only being 24 hours in the day I have decided to return to the blogging fray. I can already hear the nation rejoicing, as a little part of England flowers again.
Inevitably there will be minor changes to the blog. Due to my job at LBC I have to obey Ofcom guidelines, so where previously I might have been able to write "Ed Balls is a talentless piece of dickshit" I may have to say something like "Some commentators have questioned Ed Balls's abilities", but I am sure readers will understand and be able to read between the lines. I can do subtlety.
The other change I shall introduce is to ban anyone from commenting on what I write. It's not becase I am a sensitive little flower - although we all know I can be - but I frankly don't care what anyone else thinks, so why pretend? You come here to read what I write, not some lunatic from Leamington Spa. Don't you? Well don't you?
Another change is that because of my impartiality responsibilities I shall be writing less about politics and more about music. Indeed, the first article I shall post will be a piece titled "Roxette and the philosophy of the Joyride".
So, I am back. With a vengeance. Enjoy.
