Janine Booth’s ranting, rhyming, revolting review of the year

From the EU referendum to the Chilcot report, the floods to Oscar Pistorius, from the Queen’s birthday to the attempted dethronement of Jeremy Corbyn – 2016 is a huge year in politics and society. All these and many more issues are chronicled in performance verse by ranting lefty poet Janine Booth.


Funny, biting and original.
Francesca Martinez

A one-woman riot.
Joelle Taylor

Utterly magnificent.
Phill Jupitus
