Salut! Live, one of my remaining websites after my decision to withdraw from Salut! Sunderland, wishes all its readers a happy and healthy 2020.
The year behind us has been a shocker. There have been health issues, unsettling though fortunately not major, political issues (it's no secret I am neither a Tory nor a Brexiter) and work issues. And Sunderland AFC languish in midtable in the third tier.
It was also the year in which we lost the excellent fRoots magazine. Its 40th anniversary edition was condemned by insurmountable financial problems to be its last.
But 2019 is over and while things will certainly get worse, not better politically, I look forward to the new year with optimism on other fronts.
