What is this place?

I've colonised this bit of cyberspace to flesh out thoughts and rant, generally, about the crapness or glory of things.

It is called lefthandpal because I live in Palmerston North, New Zealand (Palmerston North = palm, geddit) and I'm leftwing in my views. I'll talk about politics, the Environment, local and international issues.

Mostly, there will be a combination of political / social commentary and me posting my thoughts on books or films, becaue these are the things that interest me. I might talk about the environment, because I'm a bit green, or Iraq, because that makes me very angry. Or some random book I found in a second hand book shop and really liked.

Bah. Great start. "lefthandpal" was meant to be "lefthandpalm", though I'm sure anyone reading this could have worked that out for themselves.

What I also forgot to add was that I am British, Scottish in fact, so a lot of my posts will deal with the British scene.

Been living in New Zealand for about 5 years now, in Palmy for three, I think.
