About

Web researcher with interests in economics and politics, particularly how these impact on the world in general and the UK in particular.  In addition, the ethos and morality of political structures, especially those that claim to espouse democracy.

I am a retired civil servant – a more apt description than that of a retired engineer – as I did have an engineering role in the UK Civil Service.

This site is where I compose my posts and is my library for their storage. At the moment — from Monday to Friday — I am publishing articles to my Facebook page on subjects that interest me. On the following Saturday I include them in a post where I have expressed some views on whatever my chosen weekly theme is. My thoughts, at the moment, are converting them into e-book themes like say, democracy, China, politicians, etc, somewhat different to and an elaboration on my list of ‘Categories’.

When I post something other my Facebook themes I try to write posts that can be read without having to open any of the links that I include. However, the included links, while essentially for my own reference, are (I would claim) always interesting. I am careful to choose links that I think will last and which, as far as possible, provide leads to my train of thought.

Sometimes I use the name Cassandra in a heading. This is from an idea conceived by William Connor who wrote for the Daily Mirror (once the UK’s leading newspaper). However, Cassandra is a play on the name of the Trojan princess gifted with predictions that were never believed.

I also use the name I invented myself as the occasional lead in a heading, invariably as ‘Aasof on … .’ These are intended to be lighter pieces where the actual derivation of my invented acronym ‘Aasof’ is intentionally directed at myself.
