About P.E.

This site is to help me with a book about change and democracy that I am currently writing. It is an extension of the work I did on the Political Innovation project (est: 2009) a few years ago with the help of a few friends.

My day-job is for the entertainment trade union BECTU and nothing that I say here, or on any social media is said on BECTU’s behalf unless I indicate otherwise.

I used to blog a lot about politics, democracy, football and music at Never Trust a Hippy, a site that I describe as my id-blog. Norman Geras’ blog featured a profile of me here a while ago.

A few years ago, I did some blog-related work in Northern Ireland with Mick Fealty of Slugger O’Toole [my posts here].

The Political Innovation project provided a base to work on the think-tank funding watchdog Who Funds You site with a few like-minded friends.
