This is Alexander Harrowell’s blog. Covering the Iraq era and beyond since 2003. GSM warlords, modern thinkers, hashtag divas, Python, arms dealers, identity cards, holistic systems analysis, music that doesn’t suck, rugby league, always socialist. And I really don’t like Tories. Despite all this, the top three search requests are “companies house webcheck”, “leon brittan”, and “SERCS corruption”. On the other hand, 1.63% of you are reading this using Debian IceWeasel. You may find me elsewhere at A Fistful of Euros, Stable & Principled, on twitter as yorksranter, and in my professional capacity at the Telco 2.0 Blog and our subscription site. I have been neither paid nor incited by agents of any foreign power.
