Welcome to the Loudshirts Blog. Here you will find all my posts, including those originally published elsewhere.
I write on unions, work, society, human rights, civil society plus some stuff on sport (rugby and football usually) and reflections on parenthood and student days.
All those posts that are about making the world a better place can be found in the Good Ideas category.
