Interesting radio interview with Tim Wells about ranting poetry, from about 18:30, including a mention of Janine!
Presentation by Janine Booth at AutismCon, January 2015
Just mucking about recording some poems on the iPad at home. So here I am, hating Tories in my bedroom. Mostly.
On 23rd June 2012, Steven Simpson, a gay autistic student, was verbally abused, stripped, and his body scrawled with offensive slogans. He was then doused in tanning oil and 20-year-old Jordan Sheard set fire to his crotch with a cigarette lighter. The flames engulfed his body, his attackers fleeing as neighbours tried desperately to extinguish the flames. Steven died the next day suffering 60% burns.
On 20 May 2014, I spoke at a meeting entitled 'Is It Time To Re-Nationalise UK PLC?' organised by Sussex Labour Representation Committee for the Brighton Fringe / PCS conference. The other speakers werre John McDonnell MP, Maria Exall and Andrew Fisher.
