Well, I hope as many of you stayed up to watch the New Year's fireworks, in case you were not in London to see them in person as many amongst the great British public were.
Like many people, I am glad to leave 2013 in the past, so turbulent it was.
There are many threats we all face in 2014, in Britain and elsewhere, most notable of which is the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) aka the EU-US free trade agreement. If you do not already know about it by now or how dangerous it will be, please search for it on Google or another reliable search engine. We need to work together to stop this agreement ever being approved.
Let us make this year the year we finally turn back the neoliberal tide, and thus work towards a better and more compassionate future.
