Seasons Greetings

I am going to be taking a break from the blog for a while over the festive season.  I will be away on holiday for the Christmas period will then have my elderly father for the New Year.  As the European Parliament does not reconvene until 11 January, I do not anticipate blogging on a daily basis before then.  I may, however,  still put up a post if something noteworthy happens.

Many thanks to all my readers, over 70,000 this year.  Thank you to the many people who have commented; early in the New Year I will receive my 1,000th comment.  One of the reasons for taking a break is that I do regularly check for and approve comments which means I am “on-line” seven days a week and at several different hours of the day.  So if you have a comment in the next few weeks it may take a while to appear.

My thanks to all my readers on Facebook and for all their comments and feedback as well.

  1. Hi Mary,

    Over the festive season, I thought that I would give you the chance to win some votes personally for a change, what with you being continually appointed from party lists to things. So I put you in a poll on my blog, based on a recent pan-European venture suggested by the Russian Space Agency in which they wanted to send a monkey to Mars. Thinking that overly cruel, I suggested a list of names instead.

    Well, you did well–you tied with Al Gore (who must be used to tying in rigged polls) and beat me, LloydsTSB and President Ahmedinajad, all of whom got no votes. Messrs Blair and Bush got a few each. My one demented reader must have been kept very busy continually voting.

    So–well done. The Russians had originally planned to bring the monkey back, and I’m sure that will also apply to you and Al (unless Lenny Willmot or whatever her name is catches wind of any more leadership bids). If you could say when you intend to go, I can get down ladbrokes with the bets to make it financially viable, if you see what I mean, and charge up my mobile phone for the pre-launch publicity photos.

    This was much easier than petitioning Downing Street to make Terry Wogan President of the European Council, and, frankly, more satisfying. I recommend it.

    All the best for the new year–onward and upward!
