Having driven most of my friends insane over the last few years with my continuous ranting about what a terrible place the UK was becoming under a government who was seemingly dedicated to overthrowing three hundred years of rights in the course of a single decade, I decided I’d like to try living somewhere else for a while. To paraphrase Martin Fowler slightly, “if you can’t change your country, change your country”.
When I started looking in earnest for a suitable candidate, Estonia kept popping up as a serious contender, which surprised me slightly as all I really knew about it I’d learned from Eurovision! But the more I read the more I decided it was the place to relocate to for a while, and a visit in October sealed it.
So, as of this week, I am now resident in Tallinn. I’ve created a new blog at http://eek.tmtm.com/ for those who want to keep up with the more mundane details.
I’m sure Ed will be able to keep me adequately informed as to the important details of what’s going wrong back home, but at least for now my despair in that regard can become a little more abstract.
