British Union is now also under threat,
Reneges on pledges by our government,
Economic isolation and collapse predicted,
Xenophobes in power left us all conflicted,
Idiocy and recklessness sold as a solution,
Totalitarianism risks; no real constitution,
Senselessness seems to rule the rulers of the hour,
United across borders, people had more power,
Corporate privatisation of services we fought for –
Killing our NHS and schools, yet we pay even more,
Spin, misdirection, and lies, with ruin at the core.

Word-weaver and artist. I'm Co-founder of Nott Normal; a Nottinghamshire based independent accessible, adaptive and gently provocative arts collaboration. Resident story-weaver for set of virtual Cottage in the Woods courses by Yelala from late autumn 2020, early Spring 2021. My writing and art have recently been part of Poems on Prescription, the National Museum of Justice's (UK) acclaimed Letters of Restraint, and The National Holocaust Memorial Centre's (UK) What is Testimony? Art and written work has appeared in various independent publications including LeftLion, Miknaf Haaretz, and Proliterat. I'm a warrior of various disabilities and chronic illnesses with an MA in Human Security (Peace and Human Development). I've worked in creative conflict resolution, sustainability & interfaith work. I stood for parliament (& local gov) in 2015, getting 9.9%, in the top 20 national results for the party. I've since left politics unless you count negotiating between three cats and a laptop. I love animals, my favourite humans, wild landscapes, accessible cities and the sea.
