After years as a left-wing activist in Britain, I moved to France in 1993.
I have worked for Radio France Internationale in English since 1994 (the views expressed on this blog do not reflect the views of my employer) and have covered current events in France, Asia and the rest of the world for RFI.
I have also done freelance work for a variety of media, notably Free Speech Radio News in the US.
