About

The purpose of this project is to introduce a breadth to the current pervasive narrative that has grown to dominate Britain’s political opposition. My intention is, over the remainder of 2017, to write a slate of four books that I believe will add something that is missing from the discussion surrounding British politics right now. Britain is plagued by mainstream ‘fake’ or 'junk' news, which just serves those who wish to undermine any opposition to their interests and is propaganda masquerading as ‘journalism’; ‘reporting’ and ‘news’ is defining the narrative for Britain’s opposition and it is killing it.

Britain's Opposition: Resistance coming in from the cold

The first book will explore Britain’s current opposition and how it is being corrupted and compromised by the interests of our politico-media ‘establishment’. Politics is not about Right and Left anymore but the interests of our über privileged caste versus the best interests of the rest of us in our society.

A Tale Of Three Referendums & Britain Going It Alone

Books two and three will be similar explorations of British politics through a series of essays; one will feature the role of Scottish Independence, outside of the narrow context of Scottish 'nationalism', and the other will tackle more broader concerns for Britain's self-sustainability in the face of Britain leaving the EU; exploring environmental, economic, philosophical and political factors.

Sudoku Britain

The fourth book is going to be the outlier, in that it will be political fiction, a work of 'imagined future'.

All of the book ideas are just that right now, ideas. I have notes and sketched-out work for them, including chapter outlines. The titles above are provisional and subject to change. The funds I am seeking to raise will allow me to work on the titles full time and bring them to a point where they will be publishable. Progress for all the titles will be logged through my blog and social media and I hope will create debate and engagement along the way that will no doubt colour my writing. It is a big project for me and one I am very excited about.

Risks and challenges

I can't guarantee that what I write will explode open a seam of wider appreciation of Britain's current political opposition. The general public are fed by the organs of media barons for their own interests and this will be very much a small acorn style effort in comparison but I believe that I can bring an engaging and challenging style to proceedings that can grab an audience. Collaboration in this project will, hopefully, return as much to my collaborators as it does to me.
