It's been a while since the last one. Since the last one, I've become upper-middle-class, become a manager, spent some time hanging around socialists, attended two Radical Independence conferences and campaigned for a Yes in the referendum. And I've also seen how far all of that got us.

For reference, here are the current UK political parties as they stand:

Huh. Guess I'm a Green, then. Makes sense I suppose; I've always empathized with the underdog, that's why I voted Yes.

I'm slightly surprised at how libertarian it placed me. Maybe I'm having one of those days.

"And I've also seen how far all of that got us." - If one in eleven No voters changed their minds, it was the end of the British state. We got close - much, much closer than I believed when I got involved - but for a scary fortnight before, I thought we might have managed it.

And now we've got a mass of activists doing stuff - it's chaotic, it's messy, it's nothing like the old guard. The mouthy bawbag contingent aside, they're winning important concessions - the women's superprison, fracking and the shaming of idiots. Keep the faith, Paul. And don't give them an inch.

I'm a good deal more authoritarian these days. Perhaps it's the alcohol minimum-pricing debate that sparked that. Oftentimes, daddy *does* know best.

I'm a raging leftie Guardian reading herbal tea drinking hippie.

I'll probably still vote SNP in May because of the useless FPTP system.
