Well, in truth, I have been very busy on a number of other projects. I had another website to build and develop, as part of my “serious life”, so I couldn’t spend as much time here.

This is my second post in the two part series “What Makes a Good Leader?” This exciting series was prompted by an absurd article in the Huffington Post, claiming that certain politicians – to wit, Ed Miliband and Boris Johnson – need plastic surgery if they are to have a hope in hell of reaching the top of the greasy pole.
