Now that the exams are over and all my work is handed in I think I am in need of a well deserved holiday, so I am off to Scotland for a week, tomorrow. This road trip around Bonni Scotland will involve a good deal of history, walking and whisky, but it will unfortunately mean that I will not be updating the blog. So please check back in a weeks time when blogging should recommence.

I am off to Obamaland (formerly known as the USA) tomorrow for a well earned break, so there will naturally be a reduction in posts over Easter but I will try to maintain a reasonable level of output. I will be in the states for a month, so expect the blog to take on a more American perspective covering news stories you probably won’t hear in Britain. However I will also keep myself informed of what’s going on in Britain, but with parliament on yet another long holiday – 4 weeks – there will surely be a reduction in news stories, with the exception of the G20 summit.
I will be staying with my family at our home in central Florida and it will be nice to see some old friends and family over there, get a bit of a tan and enjoy the pool. Plus I can watch all the Fox News I want – fair and balanced news at last. I was last out there over Christmas for the final days of the Bush Presidency, so it will be interesting to see what changes there will be.
