Welcome, ladies und gentlemen, one und all. Welcome to the Weimar Republic. I used to write The Life of Pie, which was a blog about my time living in Sydney, Australia. I set it up for that purpose and I lost my way a little when I moved back to the UK. So, this is a new start, there has been a revolution, this is what now stands in its place. Whether or not it will be a representative democracy, I don't yet know!
