To begin I would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year, along with my profound hopes that 2010 will be a better year in terms of rolling back the state and its influences for everyone.
The maintenance and upgrade work that I had planned over the Christmas period for PJC Journal has now been completed, so this blog will be on air 24/7 for 2010 and will return to the aggressive style of investigative digging, highlighting the massive misuse of power being taken by those in unelected positions, (proposed government restrictions permitting), as well as working to restore much of the democratic imbalance that has beset our daily lives.
I have also spent this holiday time preparing for the onset of 2010 in my business dealings, which as I explained in an earlier post was in need of revamping after spending a year in abeyance whilst I concentrated on the leadership role of the Libertarian Party, that mantle now having been picked up by Chris Mounsey.
I have spent a lot of time building a new mail server, website and ftp server and am looking forward to switching them into live use for my business, Parker-Joseph Consulting very shortly, which specialises in the recovery of failing projects. Something that many local authorities and government departments may wish to consider in light of the last (and many previous) National Audit Office (NAO) reports.
With a General Election now looming in the UK, I will be spending more time canvassing in the constituency of Torfaen, where I am standing as a prospective Parliamentary Candidate for the Libertarian Party against Paul Murphy MP.
With regards to the Democratic Imbalance that I referred to earlier, I shall also be working long hours promoting and publicising The Albion Alliance, a cross party, non-aligned campaign group whose aim is to get all election candidates to sign up to a personal pledge to work for a referendum on the UKs relationship with the EU. We have all had enough of promises and manifesto lines about granting a referendum only to see them broken, which is why The Albion Alliance is looking for those personal pledges from candidates, inviting them to defy party whips and put their voters in front of their respective parties.
So, a very busy year ahead, but one I am sure that will have more successes than 2009, and again I would wish everyone good health, good cheer for a year of changes yet to come.
