This blog has been quiet for a few days.
I have been in London on what should have been a single day trip, only to find that I could not return home as my village in the Brecon Beacons had been snowed in, and me out.
This did however mean that I could spend more time with friends and contacts that I had originally envisaged, and spent the time usefully digging up and verifying a few facts with Westminster insiders for my next story, as well a quaffing a few well earned beers.
Still took me many more hours than expected to get home, at one stage having had to dig myself out of the ever present snow in the mountains in order to get the last 2 miles in.
All will be back to normal tomorrow morning, after I have read and digested most of the news items, ignoring the raft of political assasinations that appear to be going on at present. (more on that too).
