Gravitational Waves

Pascal quailed at the scale
Of the solar system
The 'terror of infinite spaces'
(Reassuringly vague)
How would he have felt
If he knew what we know?
That the sun is just a grain of sand
On the massive beach of the Galaxy
Which itself is just another fleck of Quartz
Among mountains of time and light
Maybe he we would just perch on the hot sand
Under a parasol
Trying to read with polarised sun glasses
A  book of provocative thoughts
Barely noticing his skin melt in
The ultraviolence of the sun
Just thinking of another beer
While someone he doesn't know or desires
(Another whole universe)
Starts dipping their toes
In an electric sea

Live Tweeting

Over the last few years I've created some attention with my live coverage of the phone hacking trial in London, the most expensive and longest concluded criminal trial in British history. There are various accounts and articles about this on the web, including a radio play. My Twitter feed can be found here, and a collation of evidence from the trial, and all my live tweets, can be found at my Fothom Wordpress blog. There's also a Flipboard magazine and a Facebook Page. My Klout ranking is here.

More Journalism and Books

Various journalistic articles of mine are scattered throughout the web. There's some kind of portfolio at Muckrack. The most extensive reporting is for the Daily Beast and Newsweek, but there's more at the New Statesman, the New Republic, Aeon etc. I have two non fiction books published in the last year: The Fall of the House of Murdoch, available through Unbound or Amazon, and Beyond Contempt: the Inside Story of the Phone Hacking Trial, available via Canbury Press or also on Amazon. I am currently contributing to a new site for open source journalism, called Bellingcat, and advisor (along with Sir Harry Evans and Bill Emmott) to an exciting new crowdfunded journalism startip Byline

Getting in Contact

My generic email is my first name at That should get through to me pretty quickly. My Linked In profile is here.

Examples of my television work can be found on IMDB. This links to the site for my forthcoming musical, Mrs Gucci. My radio plays can be found in various audiobook formats on Amazon and elsewhere.
