Bone blog will be missed.
As I have said many times before, blogging is far from being the most important political activity; it's not even the most important on the not very important list. This blog certainly has no pretensions beyond being a bit of a hobby for me and an opportunity to amuse or irritate the two old blokes and a Jack Russell who bother to read it. But some blogs are more relevant and influential than others. Over the last few years Ian Bone's blog has provided sharp analysis and frequently on the spot reporting on everything from the G20 to the student rebellion to last summer's riots as well as being an online home for the libertarian left. Most importantly the blog was a huge source of FUN. Now after five years of pounding the keyboard Ian has decided to call it a day. The blogersphere will be that much the poorer.
