I am an experienced writer who has worked across a variety of mediums including: screenplay, script editing, prose, poetry,and novelization. I am particularly interested in psychogeography and the scope it gives both academics and creative writers to effectively trade elements of their fields.

Post Apocalypse: 1997

Apr. 21, 2017 8:00 am

Another false dawn; Blair,

blurring,

blurring the boundaries of politics and spin,

that sociopath Campbell waiting in the wings,

in the grip of more big visions.

The night New Labour drove socialism off the literal cliff;

the TV feed of partying now-celebrity MPs,

the stench of betrayal of all the core values,

the ushering in of a far-from Golden Age.

And now?

A sclerotic party running against yet more sociopathic

Empire-building rats,

selling the country,

as it fragments,

as it ceases to be united.

In 1997 it was plain the see;

consensus,

neo-liberal,

no fine line between right and left,

just a muted centre.

I slugged stout and let a solitary tear,

drift down my fake-stoic face.
