Welcome to My New Blog

Thanks very much for visiting this blog.

Here you will find my comments on political issues domestic and international. Although I have now formally left the UK Liberal Democrats I have not lost all my interest in political and policy issues and will make comments here from time to time as the mood takes me. After all, there are far too many important issues out there for me not to comment upon such as the economic situation, freedom and human rights at home and abroad and other such issues.

I chose the name Kent Roundhead for this blog, not because my head is particularly round (or large) but due to where I believe my political sympathies would have lain during the English Civil War. I am a believer in both Parliamentary and popular sovereignty and am sure that had I been alive during those times I would have fought on the side of Parliament. I also try to keep my hair fairly short in the face of my wife's demands that I look like a latter day hippy.

I will try to live up to the epithet that my former Liberal Legend II blog gained from the Folkestone Herald of being "highly readable and entertaining". Don't be afraid dear reader to provide me with constructive criticism should I fail to live up to these standards.

By the way, I will not be permitting anonymous comments since I believe that if you have something to say you should have the courage to put your name to it. I've put up with enough anonymous "trolling" for one life time thank you very much. The usual suspects can stay away thank you very much.

I'll shortly be commenting upon some of the comments in the Martello section of the Folkestone Herald today which I found amusing.


  1. Hi Toby.. there is a facebook group called "Have you Been Martelloed" which I set up some time ago.. you could cross-post to there if you liked !!!
