Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I like chatting and I like learning and I like being around people who challenge my thinking process and who I feel overall are 'good eggs' even if I don't always agree with what they say or some things they stand for.

Sometimes ET brings me clarity, sometimes it confuses but whenever I have a diary in me, on whatever topic, this is the perfect place for my rants, thoughts, observations, attempts to pass my own knowledge onto others. I like seeing what topics are important to others, and what their take on things may be.

I've learnt so much about Europe, and America, and many other places.  I've learnt about political parties, political structures and how they vary, cultural differences and norms in other countries, I've learnt about people's localities, their specialisms, their thoughts and feelings.  Bits of information feed into how I do my job, how I view myself, my neighbourhood, my country in the grand scheme of all these sometimes incomprehensible goings-on.  

I feel as though I am part of a great community here.
The only thing I would change would be to have started posting earlier.
