This week I have learned:
- I’m really not going to put up with being told that the reason Brexit won’t work is because people who don’t support it are talking it down. That’s like saying the EU fails because people who didn’t like it talked it down. If you honestly think that 37% of the eligible population voting for something is going to make me change my deeply held sense of personal identity, you are living in La La Land.
- The whole sorry situation has led me to join a political party for the first time in my life. I’m now a card-carrying Liberal Democrat.
- In 2012 the Conservative Party had more foreign-born MPs than any other UK political party (source: http://www.democraticaudit.com/2013/07/16/mps-are-much-less-local-than-they-would-have-us-believe/)
- …enough about politics
- A business sell on a deeply, esoterically technical product is much harder than it might first appear.
- I love talking to HR audiences.
- There might be increasing validity to my theory that the entire last 20 years haven’t been reality, but a remarkably intricate virtual reality experience brought to us by Chris Morris.
Next week: creating the portfolio, and getting the book proposal in better shape.
