About Adam Smith 1922
Wellington based, have worked in many countries, avid reader. Consider myself liberal on social issues, but tend to the right economically.
Abhor extremes, especially the xenophobia so often encountered in Australasia.
Would regard myself as rational on most issues, but others could well disagree.
Like travel, cricket, cinema, food (meat, veg, Chinese, Indian, English, French – not fusion) , wine, and music (folk, rock, jazz, blues, opera)
English, my wife the sensible one, is Kiwi.
Why did I start to blog. Well firstly I started reading other blogs, then I was drawn to commenting. Finally, I thought I needed to show I had a mind of my own and should reflect my own personality. In addition, Mrs Smith thought it would stop me shouting at the TV and kicking the cat.
Amongst my ambitions are the following:
- to attend the Boxing Day Cricket Test in Australia
- to attend any Cricket Test at the Bridgetown Oval in Barbados
- drink only quality red wine
- work hard
- have fun
- visit Prague again
Have a sense of humour
I have a weakness for cartoons, especially political cartoons
Likes political and legal thrillers
Am not a green, nor an environmentalist, but am increasingly concerned about food security, governance and potential global conflict
