Don't normally blog about these things, but prompted by events in DC today, I started thinking about who most shaped my politics.
Curiously for a nice white Welsh boy exiled in the relative comfort of the North London suburbs, this man, his struggle and his death did it for me
Makes me wonder how why I gave up trying to change things I felt so strongly are wrong about our world. "Now is the time", MLK said. Maybe now is the time to get back to work and make things better, together?
What about you? Who shaped your politics?
