About Me

I’m Richard Speedie and this is my personal blog. I’ll be mainly blogging about macro political issues and trying to debunk  spin, lazy assumptions and prejudice by taking on a topic each week, researching it using neutral and accredited sources and coming to some conclusions. I’m probably coming from a social democratic pre-disposition but not on everything. Now, I’ve my own video production business but I’ve worked in the past for an Irish tech startup, a US top3 publisher, and as a professional musician. Born in Northern Ireland in 1967, lived in Dublin since I was 5. Married with a young son. Have voted Labour, Fine Gael, Fianna Fail, Sinn Fein, Independent and AAA. Campaigned for the Social Democrats in the 2016 election.
