"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars".
- Oscar Wilde
With the deepest regret, I have decided to resign my position at the Home Office after 10 years' service, effective immediately.
As I think everyone is aware, I had been thinking about leaving the Civil Service for well over a year now and the London Riots brought matters to a head.
Massive redundancies are happening right across the public sector (including those on the frontline such as nurses, teachers, and social workers). I do not want to stay on as a civil servant (ie management) at a time when frontline services are being cut to the bone.
2011 has also opened up a wealth of new opportunities and new possibilities for me and so I have decided to bite the bullet, make a positive change for the better and do something different. I want to make a difference and help change peoples' lives for the better.
So, here's to a new direction and a more positive and productive work life (well, that is the idea anyway!).
