Who are you?
I’m Chris Hancock, aka Esqui. I’m 21, from Bournemouth, and I work as a general dogsbody for a retailer of fine electricals. I’ve been admin on the Mailwatch forum for a couple of years now, and also ran a blog some time ago, Daily Mail Letters, http://dmletters.blog.co.uk focusing on the people that write into the Mail. Sadly, living with a Mail reader gives me unfettered access to its pages. Which is useful for doing this!
What will you be writing about?.
I shall be picking up from where my blog left off. Only with more maturity and actually backing up my arguments a bit more! Obviously, there is no point in me just replying “No, you’re an idiot”, so expect to see a bit of detailed analysis
Why are you doing this?
Because no-one else will! I want to help make the site even better than it already is, and hopefully get people to learn a bit more about the mindset of Mail readers.
Why have you chosen your specific beat and/or what skills and expertise can you bring to it?
Obviously, I’ve got the experience in picking apart readers’ letters, and I do miss my blog at times. I hope to be able to bring a balanced view here, pointing out when they’re right as well as when they’re wrong. I think it will also link in nicely with the other contributors’ articles, especially when there are big issues which get a lot of letters.
OK, that’s me!
