You probably know by now that Pat has been promoted to Shadow Europe Minister. It is a great job for her to take on leading up to the European Union (EU) referendum and I know she will be fantastic at it.
I am writing this post to pass on that my blog activity will slow down. Let me explain why and, by the way, it's completely my choice. The press will now look more closely at everything and interpret comments more than ever, particularly anything to do with the leadership or the gossip surrounding the PLP. It's simply not worth me encountering problems because my views expressed on this blog are rehashed as comments made "by a Pat Glass spokesperson." I'm not sure that would ever happen, but I'm not taking that chance especially at such an important time. We've had a glimpse of that in North West Durham already and you probably know what I mean. It was a warning of what can happen. For the few that read my stuff, I hope you understand.
The issue of us remaining in Europe is important. For the record, I will be voting for the UK to remain in the EU.
