Welcome to Life in 361˚. This blog is an 'open journal' - a space where I keep notes on bits & pieces I come across day-to-day - including books and articles I've read that I feel are worth sharing, interesting pictures and photos (I'm a visual learner, you see), random musings - and anything else that happens to catch my eye or ear. It also acts as a kind of 'open experiment' in terms of developing my views and writing skills - and networking with other people of a like-mind.

If you've stumbled upon here randomly, then I suggest you check out my biography and other pages.

Please Note: This site, and the social networking profile pages connected with it, reflect my personal interests & views which do not necessarily represent those of organisations I am affiliated / associated with.

Trump Backfire


I am not necessarily opposed to negative campaigning. It can be a healthy part of debate to highlight possible flaws and contradictions in your opponent's arguments - and it has been a feature of history-making political and theological debates since ancient times. But attempting to smear your opponent by playing on bigotry and paranoid conspiracy theories is another matter. Trump thoroughly deserved this sharp counter-attack - I dread to think of this man becoming the leader of one of our nearest and dearest allies.
