I will despite this however miss Iain on the blogosphere and am relieved he will still be in the political arena, he has a lot to offer.
His reasons for giving up seem very sincere and certainly I can relate to many of them. I was a little surprised that he didn't mention his partner in the long list, because the hours Iain is working must also have an impact on their relationship.
The fact Iain never made it into the House of Commons was also quite sad, and it appears that he has parked that ambition for now, but as he says on his blog today;
I'm running a very successful publishing company which is, I believe, on the brink of great success. I've achieved a lifetime's ambition of having my own daily radio talk show. I am not about to put either of those things at risk.Iain explains in great detail why he has stopped blogging HERE.
So, goodbye for now Iain, we await your new website and the blog posts however intermittent they are.
