Future Learn
Free Massive Open On-line Courses (MOOC) from British and overseas Universities - I enjoyed Exeter's course on Empire. More internet courses and lectures can be found on You Tube, iTunesu, AcademicEarth, Coursera, EdX and Udacity.
Skills & Learning (Bournemouth & Poole)
Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset Adult Education services are now merged under a new title. In 2018/19 I could find no courses which seemed relevant to Politics or Philosophy.

The newest page on the site offers my house in Canford Cliifs, Poole, Dorset for sale once more following the withdrawal of a purchaser. It is a unique Arts & Crafts seaside villa of immense charm and character.

A newish page commemorates the life of Sue Tansey. A fairly recent page is about Free Attractions in Dorset. Please let me have any suggestion for further content.

One page on the site deals with the book I am working on at present. This is a book on ethics and politics in a secular age provisionally entitled What Should We Do? (Apologies to Tolstoy!) Your comments would be very welcome!
