I have contemplated starting a blog for some time, but, for whatever reason, the timing has never been right. Well, right now there is no reason why I shouldn’t try to put down in words my thoughts on a wide range of topics which are important to me. As the title of the blog suggests, I am planning to cover a wide range of different issues, although I will be concentrating on those things which are closest to my heart – lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex equality, and the separation of church and state (which are, in many ways, inextricably linked). The purpose isn’t necessarily in seeking to be widely read, but for those people who do happen to stumble across these reflections I hope they do make you think (or even start a conversation if you wish to comment). Anyway, who knows where it might eventually end up, but that’s my intention at the beginning.

  1. Hi Alastair, I can see you have been very busy. You never were a man of few words :-). I was more than happy to sign your petition until I saw your blog on the smoking issue!!!! You haven’t changed at all I’m pleased to see. Happy to see that all seems to be falling into place for you. By the way, if you don’t remember who I am, think back to 55 St Andrews Place.


    • Hi Nina, of course I remember you. Thanks very much for signing the petition, and for getting in touch. And I would apologise for the smoking piece but that would be disingenuous! Yes, life is great – geat man, great job, great life in Sydney. Hope things have worked out well for you too.
