I had been working on a series of posts about the Scottish Parliamentary elections earlier in the year, analysing the manifesto promises made by each of the main parties and how they stacked up on various issues.
Then I realised that these posts were incredibly long and boring, so I scrapped them all.
|See what I mean? - Politics is boring.|
I'd rather blog about something a bit more interesting. Such as the fact that yesterday I was on the observation deck on the 124th floor* of the tallest building in the World. This was possible because my company have sent me to Dubai on business. I'm staying in a very nice hotel, with satellite TV and internet access, I order room service for breakfast every morning, my laundry is done for me and strangely even sometimes arrives back with each item folded and individually sealed in cellophane and because it's for business I'm not paying for any of it. I have also just quit my job.

|The reality is more like this: A giant building site in the desert.|
