This is a post that I wrote for www.thelondonword.com back in 2010 I thought it was about time I added some of my older writing for my newer readers.
Here is a snippet to wet your appetite.
We all pay our car insurance, home insurance and even mobile phone insurance, hopeful that we will never have to make a claim.
The same thing applies to our National Insurance, even though we hope we will never need to call out the emergency services. But take that option away from us – more specifically, the option to call the fire brigade – and Londoners are up in arms.
But I say that we cannot blame our firefighters for thinking about striking.
The first strike happened on October 23, leaving London manned by only 27 fire engines. The second took place on Monday. The third, which had been tabled for today – Bonfire Night – was called off at the eleventh hour last night. But this might not be the end of the strikes.

I am aiming to post an older piece at least once a week.
Do let me know what you’d like to see? Reviews, more personal pieces or general ranting.
I am still looking at focussing on music I haven’t heard so send me those songs you’d like me to listen to.
I would love to hear your thoughts so please do get in touch.
