I'm sorry there hasn't been a post since last November, but I've decided after eleven years to close the blog. But all is not lost. I've decided to do very regular posts on both Facebook (Peter Ashley) and Instagram (Unmitigatedpete). Having tried it out I do find that the immediacy of it means that we can have dialogue much as we did in the early days of the blog. And, of course, the posts will remain here, and I am considering putting a big selection into a book at some time. Most importantly though, I want to thank all of you who signed up to see what happens in Unmitigated England. I hope to see you again soon!
