'I thought you'd be a Guardian reader.' That was what a new acquaintance said to me this morning. Well I don't know. I was:
Daily Mail (birth - 1984) apart from Sundays (birth - 1977) when it was Express, Times and Mirror. My Dad got three papers on a Sunday.
1984-1987 I read the Times.
1987 - 2003 I read the Independent.
2003 - 2009 I read the Guardian and Observer (when I buy a Sunday paper).
But if I come across as a Guardian reader, left of centre, liberal, social conscience, open-minded, on the side of the poor and the underdog, that's OK by me.
