Twitter holds the history of so many stupid words people have said,
& the most absolute dog Sh*t takes.. That makes It very difficult when someone has a change of heart & is trying to do good..
we all need to be a little more open to giving people a chance to do better x
I remember some f*cking stupid views I had, because quite frankly, I got all of my political views from the front pages when I’d go into tesco for my fags.. but that has always been their job..
You always assume that politics isn’t your thing and doesn’t affect you.. like the world of it is a different planet.. when every little thing they do affects us all.. & they’ve managed to divide us, break us, & leave us cleaning up their mess again & again, while they prosper
Our whole country is broken..
& the UK Media finds new ways, every single day, to get us to point the blame at eachother, while simultaneously pushing the lie,
that we don’t deserve a government as giving, & relatable, & funny, & generous as ours is..

Lies... years of lies..
So we have to be able to support eachother, when someone learns the truth.. when they want to do right.. when they want fight against it.
& we also have to do our best to support & educate too, when they don’t..
I’m sorry for all my long ass threads of late.. it’s that late night hopelessness when it starts to kick in..

This story won’t matter to many, because many have long forgotten & it no longer even matters..

but I feel it’s my only way to put an end to it..
..About 3 years ago, a mainstream Film about my life, based on my books was destroyed, just days before it went into production.

I’d spent 10 years working On it, trying to finally be rid of my past, & rid of the Gypsy Boy books that had haunted my life..
..10 years listening to discussions on whether your life was rotten enough, relevant enough, or moved potential backers enough..
At the same time I was having to live out the repercussions of writing my life down..

I still think about how the UK Press actively destroyed our alternative.

Ridiculed Corbyn’s plans to plant a million trees, called his free Broadband policy ‘Communism’ scoffed as he warned the NHS was being destroyed,
& then relished, as he was booed for talking about poverty.
A well constructed, 5 year long demonisation of the last single threat to the UK establishment. & they all united to destroy it.
I’ve said it before. They did all they could to recast Socialism as Corbynism, then utterly destroyed the man to be certain it could never come back.
I wish that Real life beyond Twitter saw as much of the damage the Government has done to this country as we do..
but that’s The media’s job.
& They’re all on here..
they see it every day..
but sadly, it’s pretty clear the absolute majority have chosen a side.. & it’s not yours
