This site is mainly a collection of interviews with people who rely on public services and who have fought as their services have been privatised and eroded.
My 2020 book “Abusing Power” is a collection of interviews with people who needed benefits and housing help in austerity. The book goes behind the scenes to jobcentre & homelessness meetings and shows how people’s experiences of the austerity state shaped their politics and thinking.
