Two weeks ago TPS’s marvellous political blogger, Ad Astra, wrote Where to from here for The Political Sword?
. The wise and compassionate and oh so politically astute Ad Astra advised it was time for him to retire. He also advised that the incredible Lyn, of Lyn’s Links on The Political Sword
Was The Political Sword
Well, it seems not
Those of us who have loved, and found enormous solace and advice and companionship and a sense of family and support at TPS
, thought ‘no!’ We need TPS
. We need the Sword
, even more than before the 2013 election. We need the Swordsters. We are not ready to let go!
So, a group, team, collective, board (finding a term to describe us is quite a challenge!) of some 10 Swordsters (regular readers and commenters) have formed the ‘TPS Team’
(with Ad and Lyn’s wonderful mentoring).
The brand new TPS
Team is organising, behind the scenes, to continue TPS
. The Political Sword
is moving from essentially a single-writer blog to one which can flourish as a forum for many writers.
Within a couple of days the team will post the first piece submitted as a conversation-starter from a writer.
We hope this is just the first of many offerings from many different voices. Are you someone who believes that progressive political voices need to be heard?
Would you like to submit a piece, essentially from a progressive perspective, for consideration?
You are enthusiastically invited to do so!
But first, read through our brief guidelines for submitting an article
. Then do be in touch with the TPS Team
When Ad Astra wrote his final, and farewell piece, he thanked a great many people, including his loyal readers. There is one person remaining, however, who missed out on being thanked because … well, that’s Ad Astra, himself.
Ad, this is just for you.
And all your grateful readers are singing along. Ad Astra, we applaud you. Thank you.
