Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yea - sorry you missed Paris, I would have enjoyed meeting up with you.  I have long given up trying to accommodate myself to some kind of notional (and shifting) political "centre".  Firstly it was too hard - I was too far off base to begin with.  And secondly, no one respects you when you do.  So now I am my own centre and people can relate to that, or not, as they choose.  That process led me out of paid employment but at least not before I could afford to do so.  I appreciate its much harder if you are still trying to earn a living.  However that also gives me a sense of responsibility towards those who don't have a similar freedom.
