Obviously, it's his choice! I'm not suggesting that he should write it according to what I believe. I was trying to answer the OP (who expressed the opposite of what I think).

To be sure, his blog is worth following but not for the politics!

I think he's in his element when he's out on his bike meeting the locals and taking pictures of butterflies. The whole paranoid politico side is just bad propaganda.

Who?
It's such a pleasure living in a world where everyone is in such a hurry to be outraged over someone else’s trivial comments

Is this a personal witch hunt? I guess its ok if the personage is a well known blogger, but holding the punches is a good thing (as has been happening largely).

Before I follow Michael Turton, I want to know where he gets his funding from
